Love Korean food? Sam Sam is your friend

Sam Sam Chicken Express is the sister store to Sam Sam found on Swanston Street. It is known to be the place to get your Korean Fried chicken fix. Sam Sam Chicken Express is situated in the food court at the QV Centre. Next door to it is Oh K!, the cousin store that does Bibimbap and Korean food sets.

I have been a couple of times as it's a good place to go in between activities. The service is fast, quick and delicious. You will, however, need to stay close to the counter to hear your number being called for your order. Sometimes it's hard to hear them say the number because their voices are often drowned out by the music and noise in the food court.

I would recommend if you are after a quick snack to get the 'Cup Chicken'. It's $6 and you can get it with Honey Soy, Honey Chilli and good old original. I do find it's a bit on the sweet side with the Honey Chilli. I don't know if it's been watered down for the Australian palate. My palate doesn't mind a bit of spice, so bring on the chilli I say.

Otherwise, you can order wings, either boneless or with bones. I personally prefer the boned chicken wings. I do think they taste better. It always comes with the crunchiest cabbage salad and Korean condiments.

Make sure you pick up serviettes, as you'll need them. It's not the type of food to eat with chopsticks. It's all about the hands. Luckily the QV Centre toilets are close by and you can wash your hands there.

What's your favourite Sam Sam experience?
