Probably an unwise choice for health freaks and exercise junkies, but this was our supper after a sweaty 2 hour badminton marathon. Usually my post-badminton supper/dinner is cereal but since I have another badminton kaki who wants to have a meal after our game, we headed to Nanda Chicken, a nice Korean fried chicken hangout joint I spotted a couple of weeks ago.
It was a Friday night, and a typical Friday night in Seoul by this time of 1030pm, calls for localites already loud-voice, red faced, soju bellied, partying and drinking their way through Saturday morning. But for Solaris Mont Kiara on a Friday night, was quiet and somewhat obedient. I always wondered, where do the Korean expats rendezvous their typical Korean Friday outings in KL?
There were several tables filled up in Nanda (located opposite Salt & Lick, same row with Raju’s), but it was generally quiet inside, with K-Pop girls dancing and singing on TV.
The food was served with some tidbits, just like any typical bars in Korea, but the only difference was that the tidbits were Indian crackers! Lol. I do recall off and on, there is a keropok Indian seller by the roadside running his business, I’m guessing they came from there.
Overall, the chicken was crazy tenderlicious! Juicy madness and you don’t get those thick batter layers which fall off when you bite them. Gotta say Nanda serves really yummy fried chicken!
Strange part of the entire dish again, was having Indian keropok on top, perhaps it’s a fusion thing to blend in with the Malaysians’ palate lol.
Total damage including drinks came up to about RM100, an equal split of cost between the chicken and the booze.
Nanda does home deliveries as well, which I have given a try and the packing is of good quality! The chicken chunks also remained their crunchiness, and I regretted attempting to win the fiery battle against the spicy chicken chunks. After a couple of pieces, my tongue was already numb and my belly became a hot pot.
Worthy foodieventure place for those who wants to have Korean style fried chicken, but what is lacking is the whole feel of crowdedness with red-faced happy loud voiced people around you enjoying the fried chicken together.
