More than just a takeaway
Chicken Coop at Glynburn Plaza is quite unique. Besides selling foods typically seen at similar outlets, it also sells a selection of Korean food as well. Most of the Korean dishes are available in medium and large sizes but the medium sized servings should be enough for most families and groups of friends.

Having enjoyed the Korean Fried Chicken at Mr Bulgogi, we decided to try the Korean Fried Chicken at Chicken Coop. Someone told us that Chicken Coop's version is the best in Adelaide. Similar to Mr Bulgogi, the chicken are available with and without bones and come in plain, spicy or soy flavour. The chicken pieces were fried to golden brown with the crisp coating being a good contrast to the tender meat. While the Spicy Chicken could have been a bit spicier, the Soy Sauce Chicken had a delightful savoury flavour that did not overwhelm the chicken. The takeaway box the chicken came in was also notable for having holes punched on the lid to ensure that the steam from the chicken did not make the batter soggy. We love the soy flavour fried chicken here but prefer the spicy ones from Mr Bulgogi.

Another Korean dish offered at Chicken Coop is their Rice Cakes in Hot Sauce, also known as Tteobboki. The rice cakes had a lovely chewy texture with the sauce adding a delightful zing. It can be a bit too spicy for those not used to spicy foods however. Provided with the meal are pickled daikon whose sharp flavour acted as a good contrast to the spicy foods. The Beetroot Salad was also very delicious and is one of those dishes that you kept going back for more.

There isn't a lot of seating space as it's a takeaway outlet. Plenty of off-street parking is available in Glynburn Plaza. If you are into Korean food, there is a very well-stocked Korean grocery store just a few shops away.
