Ella's First Pick of chicken brand is "Puradak (푸라닭 in Korean)".
Puradak Chicken is opened in 2014, which is a quite new chicken brand in Korea. However, it is getting popular with its advertising model, Jung Hae In and its unique taste of chicken. Their motto is to make their own brand a luxury and special brand of chicken franchise in Korea.
They offer chicken menus that are Puradak Chicken (Original), Black Alio, Pepper Mayo, Mad Garlic, Pablo, Spicy Girls, Devils, Sweet Seasoned, The China and Black Devils chicken. As they offer various kinds of menus, people can choose from wide selections. They also offer side menus of French Fries, Onion Rings, Oil Tteokbokki and Cheeseballs.
You can see the Original and Seasonsed chicken with Oil Tteokbokki in the photo below.
"Goobne chicken (굽네치킨 in Korean)" is getting popular with their oven-roasted chicken. They gave an impression of providing healthier chicken rather than the fried chicken.
They also have wide selections in menus such as Original, Crispy Pepper, Volcano and Galbi Cheonwang. Crisy Pepper has its spicy and crunchy taste while Volcano has spicy taste with its hot sauce. Galbi Cheonwang is based on Galbi seasoning so it is also one of the most popular menus at Goobne.

"Cheogajip (처갓집 in Korean)" is a chicken brand that you should come up with when you want to try "Yangnyeom Chicken (양념치킨 in Korean)".
