Dak-gangjeong: Second to none and goes with any drink

Dakgangjeong is made by deep-frying chicken coated with flour. The fried chicken is then smothered in a sweet sauce that has been boiled down to a thick consistency. The dish sold at Jungang Market is unique in that it is served cold. The reason why this dakgangjeong is so famous is because of its sweet and spicy taste, and despite being served cold, it is not soggy, but crisp and chewy.
