Fried Chicken!

Yesterday was Okk's open class, something that Koreans stress over for weeks, memorizing their every line, and preparing all sorts of props to impress the Principal!   I was able to switch around my classes to be there to cheer her on, which she loved! :)  She did such a great job, and I was so proud to say that she's my co-teacher!

So, after work, I told her Aaron and I would take her to dinner... anywhere she wanted!  What did she pick?  Oh, only the most unhealthy restaurant in all of Busan - home made fried chicken in Gukje Market!  It would be an understatement to say Aaron was excited about her choice!

Aaron and I had seen this restaurant before, but had never had to courage to sit down and indulge in an ENTIRE fried Chicken - the ONLY option on the menu!  
But, with Okk there, we went for it!

Here's how it works!
The workers chop an entire chicken and put it in this red bowl.  When someone orders fried chicken... 

... they throw the entire bowl of chicken into this blender, with the batter.

Then, they throw it into this gigantic vat of corn oil and let it fry!  Talk about a heart attack!

I wish I would have had a picture of the chicken when it was served to us!  I've never seen such a huge heap of fried chicken before!  We were happy to have treated Okk to her favorite chicken place, but were not happy about all the extra working out we'll have to do to make up for it!  :)

Congrats on a fantastic open class Okkey!  We're so proud of you!
