The suburb I moved to is called Lidcombe and it is super Korean! There’s a whole bunch of Korean restaurants and shops right around the corner from my apartment. The first one I tried is Fry Zone by Chicken Zone and it’s right across from the train station on Railway Street. You literally cannot miss it.
I couldn’t resist getting some KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) so I ordered the half portion of the Sweet and Soy Sauce flavour. It was a mix of breast and thigh and other chicken parts I cannot identify. The batter was crispy but I think they could have seasoned a bit more or used more sauce as not all the pieces tasted the same and a couple pieces were on the drier side.
My bf had the Beef Burger with Beetroot ($7.50) and added a canned drink and chips (aka fries) for $3.50. Here in Australia it seems common that burgers are not served with fries automatically and they usually cost more. The burger was basic but quite juicy and saucy. The fries were well seasoned and on the thicker side.
We also had a side dish of pickled daikon as well which was refreshing. Wouldn’t mind stopping by again since I live so close! Fry Zone also has a second location in Lidcombe and 2 other locations in Strathfield, another very Korean suburb. There will be no shortage of fried chicken in my future.
