Ogane (North Shore City, New Zealand)
Several weeks ago we discovered a new Korean Fried Chicken place in Rosedale area of North Shore and we loved it so much that is why since then we are in the hunt for similar alternatives so we can compare different Korean Fried Chicken places and that’s what brought us to our place today. Ogane is one of those Korean Fried Chicken places, located in the K-Town of Wairau Valley in Glenfield, its located in a prime area where most Korean restaurants and establishments are.
Ogane has several items on menu and most of them are the popular Korean dishes like Tteokbokki, Kimbap, Rabokki and Bibimbap but we came here for one thing, the fried chicken, we did not even planned to dine-in so we just grabbed our orders for takeaway. For chicken they have several options and we ordered the Half Half Chicken (NZ$30.00) and we chose the Sweet and Spicy and Honey Butter flavours.
There is a bit of wait since they only cook the chicken after you order, so it was roughly a 15-minute wait. You can either sit or better yet go to the nearby Korean supermarket to kill time. After a few minutes our chicken came fresh out of the fryer and on to a large box, each half flavour consist of 9 chicken pieces so for a full, you will get 18 pieces. That is NZ$1.70 per piece.
Now how was the chicken? Well it was good; it was so crispy and juicy like most Korean Fried Chicken we tried to date. The Sweet and Spicy was indeed sweet and spicy, and this is Korean spicy not Kiwi spicy. The Honey Butter was also good, buttery with hints of sweetness. Overall we liked it, definitely a better alternative to the original KFC Chicken Wings as this one has more exciting flavours than just normal deep fried.

The chicken looks really GOOD to me.
We have two Korean fried chicken franchises here – Pelicana & Nene. Will eat, not too crazy about them.
What a coincidence! There’s a Korean place where I used to live in California called “Ohgane.” Don’t think they’re related though. 😉
