Set along Newtown's Enmore Road and open for dinner daily, this joint is serving up some of Sydney's most authentic Korean fried chicken. The shop has become known around the city for its signature dish, served in four styles: original, sweet chilli, soy garlic and 'spicy bomb'.

It's best to pair your fried chicken with a traditional bibimbap, which is a rice bowl topped with a whole heap of veggies, including radish kimchi, bean sprouts, carrots and shiitake mushroom, and is a refreshing accompaniment to the deep fried main attraction.

Other more westernised sides here include fries, seafood pancakes and mozzarella cheese on a sizzling plater. Wash it all down with local beers from Young Henrys and Batch or, for something a little more traditional, there are Korean beers and soju on offer. You can also BYO wine for a small price per bottle

You'll find Flying Tong in our list of the best fried chicken in Sydney. Check out the full list here.
