Cheap Eats: Cup-o-chicken at Hong Cup

Cup of Spicy Chicken
How about a cup of fried boneless chicken chunks tossed with tater tots and fried rice cake? at Hong Cup in Hongdae,  Kim Ji-yeon is doing just that. The sauces are homemade, the beer is cold, and the cozy place is great for a quick late night snack with friends. Oh, and the price? It’s only 2,000 won for the small cup of chicken and beer is also 2,000- you can add a shot of soju to make so-maek for only 1,000 more. She even has a cheddar cheese chicken up on the menu (3,000 won)- I’m going to have to get that next time.
