Home Of Hot Taste on Urbanspoon

It was around 11 p.m. on a Saturday night and I had just come from the beach with a group of friends. We were still restless so we stopped by Home of Hot Taste for alcohol and a quick bite.

It was the middle of the night and besides us, there was only one other table that was full. The staff seemed to be hiding in the back but miracuously, our waiter seemed to appear when we needed him (they don’t have a button that you can press like most Korean restaurants).

At a restaurant that specializes in chicken, you’d be crazy not to order it. This Fried Chicken with Green Onion (Pa Dak) is to die for! The chicken is tender and soft while the thin outer shell offers a small crunch. The sauce that’s on the bottom of the bowl is sour and tangy, kind of like a sweet vinegar.

They take nachos to a whole new level! The Spicy Chicken Nachos are great but since I can only eat mild, I was only able to take a few bites. But the few that I could stomach were blissful. When you leave them out for too long though, the nacho chips get soft; not that I mind that.

As I stated in my previous post, I had a bad experience with oyster pancakes at Night It Up! one year. But their Oyster Pancake wasn’t glutonious and starchy at all! You can actually taste the oysters and it’s bursting with flavour! It’s always interesting to watch bonito flakes move like they have a life of their own.

They have amazing food and cheap drinks. That’s a great combination already! They have regular hours on the weekdays but on the weekend, they’re open late, until about 2 p.m. Drop by and give them a try! Skip your local KFC.
