Food Charbroiled spicy chicken & Spicy buckwheat noodles

Spicy stir-fried chicken was originally charbroiled on a grill. Many things have changed since then, and griddles are now commonly used to cook spicy stir-fried chicken. You can see many charbroiled spicy chicken restaurants near the Garden of Morning Calm. Charcoal grilling makes the chicken tender and reduces odors and fat. Charbroiled spicy chicken features a lean, clean flavor. The chicken is first placed with the skin side up on a grill. You should flip it frequently for delicious chicken without burning it. You should also try spicy buckwheat noodles when you eat spicy stir-fried chicken. Pine nuts are sprinkled generously on top, a flavorful local specialty of Gapyeong.
