The food: Korean Fried Chicken
_MG_0381 copy.jpg

Couple Sofie Rooney and Gareth Fitzgerald spent two years and several trips to Korea perfecting the recipe for their Korean fried chicken, and when the doors of Chimac finally opened in May 2019 they were overrun with hungry Dubliners eager to see if it tasted as good as it looked in the pre-opening images. It did, and for the next few weeks early closings due to selling out of food was a regular occurrence. Now things have settled down but you might still face a queue at peak times.

"The burgers are good, with moist chicken flesh encased in a suitably crispy carapace. The classic (€8.50) comes with zingy daikon slaw, chilli sauce with a punch and a citrus mayonnaise. What's not to like?"

"Chimac feels like addictive chicken for a new generation, not least because their chicken is free range." 9/10.

"A tasty inexpensive Korea-inspired fried chicken joint — a good start but I’m hoping it will get better." Food 7.5/10. Value 9/10.

"Korean Hot wings were vibrant, flavoursome, with great texture and a little side of crunchy pickled daikon radish, while skin-on house fries were as good as I've encountered anywhere recently, and way better than most." Food 9/10. Value 10/10.
