Strolling around the Myeong-dong district in Seoul, South Korea, you will find that Korean Fried Chicken joints are aplenty. However, one spot that was highly recommended to us was Noo Na Hol Dak. They have several outlets in Seoul but we visited the one right in the heart of Myeong-dong.
Upon stepping in, we found out for ourselves just how popular they are with both locals and tourists alike. The restaurant is spacious, making it a great place for communal gatherings and casual hangs with friends or colleagues. Beer is the beverage of choice to complement fried chicken—but of course.
The menu was pretty simple, focusing on what they do best: Korean-style chicken. Since Noo Na Hol Dak is well-known for their oven-baked chicken, we opted for the basic Crispy Baked Boneless Chicken (W16,900) and pints of Cass beer to enjoy.

If you are a frequent traveler, you might have chanced upon restaurant menus overseas, especially in the Western states, that has ‘Singapore Noodles’ on the menu.

Sliced chicken, pork, beef or even de-shelled shrimps are very commonly used in the mix. Although all of this sounds delicious, Singaporeans will vehemently scoff at it. Because Singapore Noodles just doesn’t exist in Singapore!
Instead, we have many more amazing noodle options.
