Athletes enter events like the FIFA World Cup or the Baseball World Cup to compete for glory. I entered a different type of cup in Parramatta called Cup and Plate Cafe restaurant for a different kind of glory. The Korean Fried Chicken kind!
There were only a few places where you can get legit Korean Fried Chicken. Areas like Strathfield, Sydney CBD and Eastwood. Now, Cup and Plate Cafe of North Parramatta (right next to Zip Carwash) has joined the line up with Korean/Fusion dishes on offer and 7 types of fried chicken available from 6pm. The only thing left for me to do was to check them out.
|Soy beef ribs stew|
First up, we tried their soy beef ribs stew ($16). Along with it came one serving of rice and 7 types of banchan. The sweet potato scallops was my favourite with its crisped batter and soft sweet innards. The tender beef comes with potato, carrots, mushroom and date with a light sweet soy braising sauce.
|Pickled daikon and cabbage salad|
The sweet spicy was my favourite between the two. The coating still retained its crunchy awesomeness inspite of being glazed with a sweet spicy sauce. The sauce was sticky and it had a sweet tangy flavour with a tiny bit of heat. I would definitely come back for more of this!
I'm just full of joy knowing that I now have closer access to some glorious Korean Fried Chicken. There are dishes I would like to try like the platter of soy garlic fried chicken ($30) and the soy bean paste soup ($11)
