Fried Chicken is big business here with countless different restaurants and delivery companies, as well as western chains such as KFC and Popeyes Chicken. One place you think about when you think of food but not so much fried chicken in the Korean supermarket chain Homeplus. Here are our thoughts on this cheap fried chicken set;
Thoughts: Firstly it’s great value at ₩6500 ($6.50) for essentially a whole chickens worth of pieces, which is enough for a couple of people maybe more. Secondly the taste and quality of the chicken is good and better than we expected from the price we paid. Finally it comes with a couple of different flavors, an onion flavor as well as a curry style flavor. Both of which are nice additions. On the negative style, but the time you’ve finished your shopping and gotten home it’s still warm but not hot and therefore a microwave maybe required.
Overall if you’re looking for some fried chicken on a budget or maybe to makeup a picnic this set from Homeplus is well worth picking up.

That looks really good! Might have to check out Homeplus on my next trip to Seoul 🙂
i supposed you bought the fried chicken in seoul?
when i was in seoul , i was busy and did not make it to homeplus.
last week i was in incheon and bought the fried chicken from homeplus,
it was 7900 Won.
i had expected incheon to be cheaper !!
it tasted great!
i m back in singapore now but have to return to Jamsil next month….
In fact it was in Incheon. It’s the same price in nearly all Homeplus stores.
In fact most Seoul has products similarity priced to the rest of Korea. Apart from the Touristy and Upmarket places.
