Must Try: Original Fried Chicken

The Sparrow's Mill is a relatively new KFC eatery in the city which is conveniently located opposite world square on Goulburn St. To avoid a long queue, be sure to get here relatively early (around 6pm).

Spring Onion Gang Jung $18 Half

There's so many different kind of chicken to choose from, the first thing I saw on the menu were the words "Incredible Chicken Gangjung" so I excitedly ordered it. Gangjung is a traditional korean cookies made out of puffed rice, honey, peanut and sesame seeds.

Unfortunately the sauce was a bit too sweet for me and the chicken is covered with the sauce so it's not as crunchy as the original fried chicken. I was kicking myself for not trying the original one!!

Jap Chae Stir Fried Glass Noodles and Vegetables $12.80 with Beef extra $3.80

These noodles were very tasty and it comes with a lot of veges!

Spicy Soft Tofu with Seafood and Vegetable Stew $14

Spicy tofu soup is always so good in Winter to warm ourselves up, just looking at the vibrant red bubbling dish makes my body warm. This was delicious and not overly spicy.

Must have: Spring Onion Chicken

If you've read other posts about The Sparrow Mill, you'd probably find out that their sister restaurant is Red Pepper, which is located inside Strathfield Sports Club. I was craving fried chicken one weekend, so we happily went to Stratty to try it out!

Of course I ordered the fried chicken this time! The sauce was AMAZING, that hint of wasabi went so well with the crunchy chicken. But I must say, Naruone's fried chicken is crunchier so I prefer them more than Red Pepper & The Sparrow's Mill.

As it was our first time going to Red Pepper, we didn't know if we order on the table or go to the counter. So we asked one of the waiters who said he'll take the order and then after we "ordered", he gave us a confused look and asked us to go to the counter near the bar to order. Hmm weird much?

Other than the service, I would definitely come back for that Spring Onion Fried Chicken! And for my love for cheese, I want to try their Snow Cheese Chicken which seems to be popping up in IG all the time :D
