Lim’s Chicken

Photo by Troy Fields
South Korean import Lim’s Chicken opened at 10603 Bellaire in the northeast corner of the Saigon Houston Plaza anchored by the giant Kim Son Buffet & Dim Sum Restaurant. The Houston outpost opened in mid-December of 2016 and is the first Lim’s to land in the United States.The eatery serves traditional Korean food, but specializes in fried chicken, cooked using the twice-fried technique that leaves the meat tender and juicy while securing a crispy, outer shell and usually served coated with a spicy, hot sauce. The kimchi is tasty, the Korean dishes are standard and the fried chicken is pretty good, but don’t just get the original flavor; Korean fried chicken isn’t “Korean” fried chicken sans the spicy sauce.
