Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 September 2017 via mobile

Tucked inside Zion Market (Clairemont Mesa) is a Korean Fried Chicken gem. They are not in the Food Court but inside the grocery near the meat and vegetable section. I would not have known about this place if not for my Korean friends who raved about it. The fried chicken they serve are super delicious and perfectly fried fresh - when you place your order, the owner will courteously ask you to return in 15 mins as they will start frying the chicken then. The fried chicken is almost oil and grease free but so juicy inside. They serve 3 flavors - Crispy, Spicy, and Sweet Soy. Recommend trying all perhaps starting with the crispy. You also have the option to get half of one flavor and half of another. Gala Chicken is run by a very friendly and humble Korean family, always smiling and courteous. They won't accept tips and even when you insist they would graciously ask the tip be placed in a donation container for African missionaries and I am always touched by that. Highly recommended.
