Bongchu Braised Chicken 1Utama | Halal Jjimdak
Bongchu Braised Chicken in District K, 1Utama is a restaurant that sells its one speciality – Jjimdak (찜닭), aka braised chicken.
With a limited menu selection, it makes it easier for my co-worker, Chun and I decided on something, especially after a long day at work. So, we went with the Spicy Braised Chicken and Nurungji (누룽지).
The shop owner, who had open the restaurant in March, asked us: “Would you be okay? It’s a bit spicy.”
Chun said: Well, I can’t handle the spicy well, but my colleague can handle it.
What kind of food did they serve?
- Bongchu Braised Chicken (soy Sauce) and Spicy Braised Chicken

For me, it’s not too spicy, and it’s flavourful and addictive. Then, to dip the scorched rice into the sauce is just magical – the crunchiness and the sauce match together. I would recommend the place for someone who likes to try the speciality and go for the soy sauce if you can’t tolerate spiciness.
