Red Pepper, Strathfield, Sydney
I have yet to find a place where I can get KFC that is Korean Fried Chicken in Hong Kong. Hence my visit to Sydney is crucial when consuming KFC! I have heard wonderful things about Red Pepper, which can be located in Strathfield in a sports club! Who would have thought that you could get KFC in a sports club?
We rocked up on a Sunday evening and the place was busy! Only one table left inside which we took. We were here for one thing only, that is to consume KFC! Started with some banchan – complimentary side dishes which consist of kimchee, sautéed vegetables, pickles and mung bean sprouts. We couldn’t resist but ask for more kimchee!
There are about 10 different KFCs to choose from! We started with pork bulgogi which came out in a hot stone plate. It was tender and spicy.
I wanted to try one of each of the KFC but I knew my eyes were bigger than my stomach! Thankfully diners can order half or full, so we decided to order 3 different types of KFC all halves!
Started with hot and spicy ganjung – oh my – this was seriously spicy and the burn lingers! It was quite sweet for my liking but the chicken was tender and as much as it was hurting, it was delicious.
We also tried the soy sauce fried chicken was very similar to the hot and spicy minus the kick. It was still quite tasty I thought and I must admit, I prefer this over the hot and spicy.
However, what I have been waiting for has been the spring onion fried chicken. Oh my goodness, how I love fried chicken! It wasn’t as crunchy as NaruOne but it was still good! Crunchy and finger licking good! We definitely should have ordered a whole instead of half!
Service was minimal but food was tasty. Definitely will be back to try their other fried chicken. Strathfield has changed a lot since my school days. There are so many different restaurants to try! Definitely a suburb I must explore more when I am back.
Oh how I am craving KFC right now – my Hong Kong readers – where can I get KFC in Hong Kong?
