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. Opened by sibling duo Julie and Jeff Oh back in 2017, 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 an Oh family recipe. The rice bowl comes 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 bulgogi fries, seafood pancakes and fried chicken sliders. 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 $8 a bottle.
