Surging Demand for Korean Fried Chicken and Beer amid World Cup
Ever since the Qatar World Cup 2022 has kicked off, fried chicken is selling like hotcakes as soccer fans in Korea cheer for the home team. Chimaek, a combination of the words ‘chicken’ and ‘beer,’ or maekju, is definitely the number one choice menu for Koreans around the world watching sports events. For instance, Genesis BBQ, which operates bb.q Chicken, said their sales at its branches in Korea rose 220 percent during the last one month and Kyochon Chicken’s sales rose 160 percent.
Typically, the Korean-style fried chicken is more focused on making the outer layer crispy compared to Japan’s karaage or China’s kkangunggi, which are largely focused on the meat itself. In other words, the Korean-style is generally known for its supremely crunchy coating, which is often the result of a double-frying method, and then coated in a sauce.
If you have not considered ordering the Korean fried chicken for the World Cup games, you might want to keep in mind that there are many famous Korean-style fried chicken franchises in Colorado where you can order delicious Korean fried chicken to enjoy with your beer.
