THAT SNOW KOREAN FRIED CHICKEN!! Smokkim Korean BBQ is located in Rhodes. I stopped by for dinner.
I opt to just order off the ala cart menu this evening. I was looking at Korean Fried Chicken menu and had been keen to try the snow cheese chicken. I opt for half a portion though. The snow cheese chicken ($18, half portion which was about 8 pieces) was crunchy and coated in a cheesey powder. It was a bit different and I quite liked it. Too much of this chicken might make you feel a bit ill but a few pieces is a delight.
I also ordered the Korean Kim Chi Pancake is essentially a kim chi pan cake/omelette ($15, below). The pancake had chunks of kim chi which added spice. Overall though, the pancake was a bit oily and was crunchy around the edges. The sauce was a light fish sauce. I'm not sure if I'd order this one again.
Overall, I had a nice experience at Smokkim. Some of the staff don't speak English that well so I would speak very clearly when ordering unless you are a korean native. I will have to come back to check out the Korean BBQ at some point.
