Last Thursday night while our friend was over for dinner, he waxed lyrical about some Korean fried chicken that he recently tried in Edmonton. Needless to say my husband and I were intrigued! Not only was it any fried chicken, but he claimed it was fried chicken prepared the exact same way in Korea!
So despite snowy weather the next night, we found ourselves heading out to try the newest Korean fried chicken in town - Coco Deep Fried Chicken. Coco is located in a strip mall on the south side of 34 Ave (3350 Parsons Rd) in Edmonton, between the chinese restaurant Tin Tin and the Korean butcher shop, Nice to Meat You.
Coco Deep Fried Chicken seems to be more focused on take-out rather than sit down. There are about 6 tables in the space that can seat 4-6 people each. It seemed that most customers were either calling in their order and picking up, ordering take-out (like us), or sitting down for a quick meal.
A sign near their cashier till displayed the "Coco Chicken Promise" to their customers. It was certainly nice to know their mission statement. Originally, we wanted to order the "Half and Half Chicken - 10 piece" ($22.99) made of 5 pieces of regular crispy chicken and 5 pieces of sweet and hot sauce. Unfortunately, as it was near closing, they had run out of the sweet and hot sauce. The owner told us that they have to make the sauce from scratch each day. In the end, we decided to get the Family Crispy Chicken 10 piece pack ($21.99).
