BBQ Chicken, a rather generic name for a restaurant, located inside Wangsa Walk Mall in Wangsa Maju has a unique way of cooking their chickens. All chicken dishes served from BBQ Chicken is cooked using 100% olive oil. Now this was rather interesting since we all know olive oils are used really sparingly due to its cost, and to deep fry a chicken, BBQ Chicken had to use a lot, hence the slightly higher price. It's supposed to be really healthy oil though.BBQ Chicken Wangsa Walk Mall

This afternoon, I happened to be at Wangsa Walk Mall for lunch together with my colleague and we decided to crash in this restaurant. I've had the BBQ chicken here previously, and it was really quite tasty and good. Probably the olive oil does play a big part in bringing out the taste.
A quick glance at the menu, and I noticed this short information sharing what BBQ Chicken is all about. With a tagline that reads "The World's most delicious Chicken with Olive Oil" and "Korea's No.1 Chicken Restaurant", I was rather taken aback by their claims. I mean, these claims were really loud and over the top if you asked me.

As it was a quick lunch, we ordered 2 of BBQ Chicken's recommended dishes namely the Olive Luxury Chicken which reminded me of KFC, and the Korean Charbroiled Barbequed Chicken. Check the photos I managed to capture of these two dishes below.

I really liked the taste of the Korean Charbroiled Barbequed Chicken, as the spices they used really brought out the flavor of the chicken. Unfortunately, the servings were really small, and not quite enough to satisfy my hungry stomach. I guess BBQ Chicken lives by the motto "Good things comes in small bite sized pieces".

The Olive Luxury Chicken portions however were pretty big, but the taste did not really shout out "Hey, I'm cooked with Olive Oil!" Instead it turned out tasting so similar to Popeyes fried chicken that I found myself being grateful that I ordered the Korean Charbroiled Barbequed Chicken which was way better.

Overall, it was an okay meal, one which for me tasted good but the portions were too small to really satisfy medium eaters like myself. If you happen to be shopping in Wangsa Walk Mall, and find yourself having an urge to have some good barbequed chicken, don't hesitate to try out this restaurant.
