Austin’s all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue spot Charm Korean BBQ entered the Korean fried chicken game with its new restaurant Charm BBQ Chicken, now open out on 12233 Ranch Road 620 near Anderson Mill since early April.
The Korean fried chicken is served in a multitude of ways: fried (obviously), tossed in sauce (red pepper sweet and sour, yangnyum, honey garlic, spicy barbecue, etc.), bone-in, boneless, drumsticks, tenders, and topped with onions (aka its snow onions).
There are non-Korean fried chicken dishes too, like dumplings, deep fried squid, bulgogi fries, deep-fried gizzards. There are heartier, fuller plates for lunch and dinner, with dishes like deep-fried tofu, beef bulgogi, tteok-bokki (spicy rice cake hot pot), etc. As for desserts, there’s snow ice flake with or without additional flavors and fruit toppings.
Drinks-wise, there’s beer (the chimac option comes with beer and the Korean fried chicken), soju, Korean rice wine makgeolli, and cocktails. The large space features indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a bar with a television screen.
Its hours are from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and again from 4 p.m. to midnight Monday through Friday, and then from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday.
