Tucked away on Manoora Street at Greenacres, Kchefs Korean Restaurant specialises in Korean cuisine, with Korean Fried Chicken and dumplings forming a key part of the menu.

Kchefs is currently the only Korean restaurant in Adelaide, that we are aware of, that offers Korean Fried Chicken in flavours other than the three popular flavours of plain, sweet and spicy, and soy. Their Snow Cheese Chicken reminded us of the dish offered at The Sparrow's Mill in Sydney; and the Volcano Chicken lived up to its name by delivering a potent spicy punch. Both types of chicken had succulent meat set off beautifully by crisp coating. Served with the chicken were cabbage salad and pickled daikon that complemented the fried chicken nicely.

While the menu described their JangBan JJa-Jang as a dish for one, the portion size is big enough to be shared. The generous amount of seafood contributed to the enjoyment of the dish. The noodles were cooked al dente and there was enough black bean sauce to lift the flavour of the other ingredients but not so much that the dish became too soggy. Aside from pickled daikon, the dish also came with a small serving of kimchi.

The fluffy texture of the Hemool-Jeon (Seafood Pancake) was set off by the golden brown and crisp exterior. The pancake also had enough seafood to give it the slightly meaty texture that we desired. Though it is tasty on its own, dipping it in the soy sauce provided an extra element of flavour.

Coming in a serving of eight, their Dumplings can be ordered in one of four flavours - Vegetable, Kimchi, Chicken and Pork & Beef. The vegetable filling we chose tasted similar to the one at Mandoo. The skin of the dumpling was thin yet crisp. In addition to soy sauce for dipping, the dumplings also came with pickled vegetables that tasted similar to Achar, a South-East Asian pickled spicy vegetable appetiszer.

Kchefs is a small neighbourhood eating place with limited seating. Parking is easy as the carpark in front of the restaurant offers convenient off-street parking. If you like Korean fried chicken, this place is definitely worth a visit.
