-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
with the Family
Very pleased by our first experience with Shanghai via delivery, I was curious to try the food in person at the restaurant.
Lajo gi is a Korean-Chinese dish. The Chinese characters break down as “la(辣)(spicy) + jiao(椒)(chili) + gi(鷄)(chicken).” In Korea, the dish involves deep-fried pieces of chicken, which are stir-fried with mushrooms, bamboo shoots, and other vegetables in a mildly spicy glaze. Very similar to gganpung gi, which is a bit spicier and heavy on the garlic, no veg.
As with most Korean-Chinese dishes, I have no idea what the original dish, if any, is like.
It was good.
