While previous posts have featured the restaurant’s chicken via delivery, this is the first post from the restaurant on site.  Maybe next time, I’ll show the inside.

Not that I like outdoor seating per se (I am not a white person), but I couldn’t resist the convenience of stopping for a quick beer.

While standard deep-fried squid (ojingeo twigim) includes the entire squid, the variation here serves only the legs.   The name of the dish is a portmanteau of “o (ojingeo) + dari (leg).”   Come to think of it, squid legs are better suited for this kind of application, because the batter/breading adheres better to all the curves and crevices of the tentacles, compared to the smooth surfaces of the body.

The quick beer.
