Pelicana Chicken is a famous Korean Fried Chicken chain,started since 1982. In 2013 they have over 2000 locations in South Korea. Now, it's finally arrived in Melbourne, opening their first store at Franklin Street. The store it self have indoor and outdoor spaces with matching small round tables through out the store.

I came in on a Saturday, not knowing there's going to be an event. Obviously, the marketing person Clara and Gavin were pretty busy setting the Eating Challenge event up, so does the kitchen. I would have picked a different date, if I knew. Another surprise was the owner turns out to be my husband friend from work, Clement. What a small world.

What's exciting about Pelicana chicken? They have 11 chicken flavours! I want to try their famous Pelicana marinated flavour but turns out they don't have it that day, so I opted for their original and honey butter cause they said nowhere else have honey butter flavour. All great chicken are rated based on their original flavour, that's my opinion. The batter was crispy and not oily, also enough flavour but I want it to be amped just a lil bit more. In terms, of the honey butter. It's a unique, pleasant flavour indeed so I want more of that flavour on the chicken, please!

Tteok Bokki ($13.99) and Beef Bulgogi on rice ($12.9). What I didn't expect was the side dishes to be so good, the tteok bokki was chewy bathed in thick sauce and firm ramen noodle, love it so much but I would like a touch larger potion for the price. The beef bulgogi on contrary comes on a generous big bowl, the beef was super tender as well as flavourful sweet, a touch salty, the kimchi was fresh and not too spicy, as well as the sauce that comes with it.

They also have various Korean drinks such as Morning Rice (Korean corn milk tea bottled drink), Milkis and Podo Bongbong (Grape juice can). There are still very new and still settling down on many things, one of the staff that helps us just came on that day and have very lil knowledge on the menu. Pelicana chicken has a great potential, I can't wait to see their progress in the future.
