Gami Chicken & Beer @ Eastland @ Wednesday, July 26, 2017
Tuesday 4th July
Can you believe I've never been to a fried chicken restaurant before? (KFC epic fail with .5 rating doesn't count.) I do love fried chicken though it's more of an occasional treat, every couple months. Nene & Gami seem to be the most popular places when it comes to Korean fried chicken, and there are multiple locations for both. With appointments at Eastland we stopped by Gami for a late lunch. Located above Coles and under the movies they weren't located in the food court.
With plenty of seats and a modern pops of colour it looks like a very popular place to be pre-movie and to hang out, for young people. Alas we aren't that young. It feels like a place that might have a DJ on Friday nights.
The boys love deep fried things and beer, alas bio guy doesn't drink. He loves to be turns into a bogan when he does. - This I have yet to see and eagerly await to see this happen.
You can order half or full chickens, but what if you're dinning alone?
Sweet potato noodles stir-fried with mushrooms, chicken and veggies in a sweet soy sauce
The Japache side meant to be mushroom dish but was mostly onion and noodle. That aside it was excellent. It was so good I would get this just on its own for lunch! Though ask for scissors, it's a bit hard to cut with teeth and chopsticks.
Note - This is only available for lunch. Also we should have taken a photo of the noodles... You could easier get this for one as a lunch dish.
Boneless Chicken - A mix of breast and thigh fillets (750g) $32
Comes with two dipping sauces, cabbage salad and pickled radish.
We ordered as half half seasoning, only got original but was still good. Boneless, tender meat consistent and a beautiful crisp seasoning . This is one of the best fried chickens I've ever had! Though I've never been to a fried chicken place before. Bio guy prefers it with bones as he eats the bones too.
Dipping sauces: honey mustard, sweet chili, soy garlic (you get two but we ended up with three) and pickled radish. Sauces were all awesome, different palates will like different ones. I liked all three, though I think the honey mustard was my favourite, bio guy can't decide.
If you're going to order a side side like we did and it's only two people order half a chicken. An entire chicken is too much for normal people, 1/4 is all you need each. Unless you're a
Service was quick and friendly. They got our order wrong though.
At 3pm there was plenty of space and almost no one else there.
It appears you can't get a breast/thigh on its own, unless you want wings/ribs... oh so that's why I've never been here. It's a group place... what if I want to dine alone? We need more 'table for one' friendly places.
