Review: SFC Seoul Fried Chicken

SFC Seoul Fried Chicken Edmonton Old Strathcona

Okay, I’m toooootally late to the party but this month I finally tried SFC Seoul Fried Chicken

Seoul Fried Chicken is located at 7904 104 Street (Calgary Trail), just off Whyte Avenue in Old Strathcona. It’s this tiny little spot, with limited seating, at the corner of a strip mall, that serves up the best Korean Fried Chicken in the city.

I went with my friend Chris for lunch. It was his first time trying Seoul Fried Chicken too and we were both extremely happy with the experience! 

At SFC, you go right up to order and if you’re lucky, you can snag a seat inside. We went before 12 p.m. so there were still seats available, but shortly after noon the place got pretty busy, pretty quick!

Seoul Fried Chicken’s menu is pretty straight forward.

They offer 7 flavours of fried chicken (for 7 days of the week), with flavours to satisfy all cravings – from garlicky to onion-y, to cheesy to BBQ-y, and even cilantro limey if that’s your jam.

Small, cute interior at SFC.

You can order the chicken in half or whole sizes (10 or 20 pieces) with half size prices ranging from $13 to $14.50 and whole size prices ranging from $23 to $27.

Sides like fries, corn fritters, or various salads (like their incredible Mac ‘N Cheese Pesto) are ordered separately and range between $1 to $6.

Or you get their fantastic 5pc Chicken Set for just $11 – where you get really more than enough chicken, plus two sides and a drink.

For just $11! I think this is one of the best lunch deals in town.

I ordered the Garlic Soy (SFC OG basted with soy sauce and garlic) with Mac ‘N Cheese Pesto (creamy asiago sunflower pesto) and House Fries and loved everything about this set.

The Garlic Soy flavour was perfect – so much flavour, crispy skin and super moist inside. It was salivating. 

I’ve never had a Mac ‘N Cheese Pesto before and thought this was such a great take on a classic.

So addictive – I could eat this over and over.

Chris got the SFC BBQ (‘Dad’s famous Korean spicy BBQ sauce’) which was just as moist as my chicken, but we both thought it was a bit too saucy. If my chicken’s too soaked in sauce it makes it hard for me to enjoy it (reduces the crispiness on the outside). Despite this, it was still really tasty chicken and the corn fritter was damn good too. 

If beers more your thing, you can get a 5pc Chicken + Beer set for $12.50, which is also a great deal (but these sides are a must, guys, so I vehemently recommend you get the 5pc Chicken Set).

Mac ‘N Cheese Pesto! DELICIOUS.

I love how no-nonsense Seoul Fried Chicken’s menu is.

I totally appreciate when a restaurant has a sole focus – when owners/chefs know they’re really damn good at a certain thing and run with it instead of trying to be and offer too many things.

Remember, SFC fills up fast. The food naturally comes to-go (in a pizza box!) and because there’s limited seating, take-out is probably the better option. 

I would like to do a blog post one day with some of my favourite / best (cheapest and most delicious) lunch deals in town and Seoul Fried Chicken will definitely be on that list. 

$11 for all that damn good food? Sign me up. I can’t wait to come back many, many times. 

So have you been to Seoul Fried Chicken?! What did you think?

  • I haven't had a really good, loaded potato skin in a long time. So comforting. πŸ™πŸ» This dish is part of @yourAGA's #ZincTapasTuesday - they're offering new menu items to coincide with their new free admission Tuesday (and Wednesday). I got to try some of the dishes tonight with some #foodfriends! My other favourites of the night was the duck breast and a killer pulled pork sandwich that's just $4! πŸ”Thanks @chefdaveomar. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

  • I feel like poke has been allllll over my feed lately! Pronounced "po-kay," this traditional Hawaiian raw fish 🐠 salad, typically served with sauce over rice 🍚, has finally hit the Prairies. 🌾 Over on the blog (www.linda-hoang.com, link in bio), I review the new @OnoPokeCoYEG, which literally translates to "delicious poke." 😊  Delicious poke indeed. Pictured here πŸ“Έ is Ono's Original Ahi tuna poke bowl. Have you tried poke? Are you as thrilled as I am that we finally have great poke options in Edmonton?! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

  • This weekend @mikethyking & I had a great #staycation at the @deltaedmsouth! We love how this hotel is #petfriendly so @OliveAndArtie were able to spend the weekend with us too. 🐢❀️ We also had a great dinner at their 4404 restaurant. Looking forward to coming back here tmrw night for #IndulgenceYEG, a #yegfood & wine festival 🍷 taking place at the Delta. Tickets support the Junior League of Edmonton & I believe some are still available on their website if you want to spice up your Monday with basically unlimited food & wine! ✨

Pictured here is Chef Cowan's fried chicken, lentils, and carrots dish topped with a fried egg. 🍳 Be sure to see these two in action again for Bacon Day - a charity event they put on each September.
