Our sweet spicy chicken has its roots in Korea, where it’s called dakgangjeong. The chicken is deep-fried and crispy, glazed in a sticky sweet, spicy sauce. Koreans typically eat it with pickled cabbage, which adds a fresh touch to this otherwise sweet dish. Our sweet spicy chicken goes well with beer or coke, and is the perfect party snack.
Sweet spicy chicken became popular in China via a Korean TV drama from 2013, where this dish is frequently spotted. We chose to include it in our menu not only because of its special character, but because it shows how the global popular culture impacts Chinese food.
