GOODS: By Popular Demand, Fried Chicken Graces The Menu At Fat Dragon Bar-B-Q
The GOODS from Fat Dragon
Vancouver, BC | The number one question asked by patrons when Refuel Restaurant closed last March was, “Which one of your restaurants is going to start serving your famous fried chicken?”. After countless requests from our regular and new guests, Fat Dragon Bar-B-Q has the answer. Given that fried chicken is a staple in southern U.S. cooking and can be found on the menu at several Korean restaurants, it didn’t seem much of a stretch to find a place for fried chicken on this east meets south menu.
Executive Chef, Ted Anderson and Chef de Cuisine, Adam Johnson introduce Dragon Fried Chicken. Brined in smoked water and twice fried, this half Polderside Farm’s chicken is super crispy and served with a barbecue sauce made in house with fermented soy bean and Korean chili paste. “Not to sound cliche but… we did it our way,” says Anderson, “with a lick of smoke and some Asian flavour, this fried chicken should satisfy our guest’s cravings while keeping with the original Fat Dragon concept.”
