Chicken Bus (칙킨 버스) is a fried chicken chain restaurant with locations throughout Seoul and South Korea in general. We’ve only visited the Cheongna branch so we’re going to focus on that location, although as a chain other branches should be similar. Fried chicken is extremely popular here in South Korea and you don’t have a look far and wide to find one. However some are more geared towards take out, others the food whilst Chicken Bus and a few others more towards sociable drinking and food. Here are our thoughts on Chicken Bus.
Thoughts: Firstly the food, the chicken was tasty and the meat was thick and not overly greasy. We also had french fries which were surprisingly good. Secondly the drinks, the big table beer tap/pitcher was a unique selling point and it was nice to be able to pour your own draft beers. Although it did go a little flat after 90mins. Finally the place itself, the booths added privacy but you didn’t feel pinned in or claustrophobic. The TVs on the wall and art adding to the relaxed and laid back atmosphere of the place.
Overall Chicken Bus is a solid fried chicken restaurant, but is a little more geared towards a weekend / social drinking than just about the food. Well worth checking out if in the area.
