Hot... in a cheesey way
I had been hearing about fire chicken at Cocobang for a while now, so a few weeks ago, a bunch of us went to check the place out. When ordering the fire chicken (pieces of white chicken meat covered with korean hot sauce on a hot plate), the waiter asked if we wanted with cheese. After finding out this was the way he preferred the dish, we went ahead. What we got was melted, shredded mozarella over the chicken. While it may seem like a strange combo... the flavours really worked well together and the cheese helped to temper the heat of the hot sauce. Cheese in Korean bar cuisine... who knew?
