A slight delay occurred in the course of these appointments, pushing lunch plans back by an hour. This setback didn't deter the appetite of a certain potato, however.
양념 치킨, otherwise known as Jinyoung's choice of chicken, was available in mild, spicy, or very spicy sauce options. A half portion contained approximately ten large pieces, which was abundant considering our combined appetite levels. Not dissimilar to their other signature chicken offerings, the exterior was crispy and well-seasoned, while the interior was juicy without exhibiting loss of texture. The primary distinction was the uniform coating of sweet, tangy gochujang-based sauce, which contributed not only a subtle kick of spice but also an improved depth of flavour.
Clearly the heartier dish of the afternoon, the dish merged protein (in the form of a runny egg and succulent meat patty) with energy-harnessing white rice.
Not to be omitted from this recap was the sheer divinity of the gritty sesame sauce adorned by the cabbage slaw - it maintained its fragrance despite the pool of savoury hamburg glaze and was a refreshing alternative to the standard vinegar-grated onion dressing.
Following a mellow hip-hop class at VYbE, we headed over to Hub Sushi to conclude the evening.
Favourites such as Hub Tower and dolsot Unagi Kimchi Donburi that had been sampled on two previous occasions were requested. Added to the roster was Dinner Set A, which consisted of a platter of chef's choice aburi nigiri.
Of course, this could have also been owed to the fact that we arrived near closing hours.
