Want some of the best Korean Fried Chicken in Brisbane?
If you’re craving some seriously good Korean Fried Chicken (think finger lickin’, tender, juicy chicken), then do I have a great recommendation for you! Head over to KCS, a pop up takeaway of the amazing Kimchi Cheese Smile restaurant fame. Kimchi Cheese Smile was the first contemporary Korean Brisbane restaurant in Brisbane, but like most restauranteurs who were affected by the recent pandemic, owners Sara Jeon and Jamie Yang had to start thinking of ideas to keep their business afloat. Thankfully, (for them and us fried chicken lovers), they quickly created a great work-a-round; “KCS”, a takeaway serving up the very best Korean Fried Chicken along with some pretty tasty (and healthy) side dishes as well.
The Takeaway Menu
Boneless Fried Chicken
KCS currently offers a choice of 3 delicious of tender boneless fried chicken:
• Korean Sweet Chilli – $17.50
• Secret Soy – $17.50
• Plain – $16.90
My fav – The Korean Sweet Chilli is drenched in a moreish sauce (slightly spicy but not hot), but still remains crisp (how do they do that???)
*All chicken is chemical and hormone free
KCS Chicken Sandwich
Love love the chicken sandwich! Crispy fried chicken served on a fresh brioche bun with chilli mayo and cucumber pickle – such amazing value at only $10.50!
Having tried all of the sides now let me just say – they are all fantastic! You even get a complimentary kimchi with every fried chicken order! You may want to order more though – it’s house-made and super yummy!
Beer Battered Chips
These are one of the crunchiest takeaway chips Ive had – Small – $5.50 Large -$9.50 – trust me go for the large! They come with chipotle salt seasoning and you can add extra sauces – Chilli mayo, Aioli, BBQ or tomato. (or you can dip them in your thick shake – seriously good!)

So healthy! A huge bowl of baby gem lettuce, apple, celery and pumpkin seeds – only $9.50. Add Crispy Chicken + $7

Dutch cream potato – $5
