Of all the endless eating opportunities, I ended up wanting to try the chicken feet! They are served up in Korea a few different ways, but the kind I wanted were the hot ones.
The ones I tried are called 불닭발 (bul dak bal) or “Fire Chicken Feet”. Anytime I see the word 불 in front of a dish here I wonder if I can hack it or not. I mean, I handled the 불낙 볶음면 which is literally translated “super-crazy spicy hot ramyeon noodles to fry off your face”. Yeah, it’s funny how these names pan out. Truth be told, they weren’t the hottest noodles I’ve ever had.
So I figured these chicken feet can’t be all that bad.
They were. I’m convinced they are marinated with jet fuel or something because after just one tiny piece I was sweating profusely.
