Address: 1771 Plymouth Road, Ann Arbor, MI 48105
Verdict: Best fries and fried chicken in town
Will return: Definitely
What to get: Kimchi Fries

Seoul Street is located on North Campus in the same center as Panera Bread. You will have to drive unless you want to take the bus up to North and walk from the Bursley stop (don’t do that). Seating is limited as there are only three tables so be prepared to get it as takeout (everyone on the bus will hate you).

Kimchi Fries ($5.75)
These. Are. Bomb. Consume with caution because after you have it once, you will be craving these during those late nights studying (aka every day). Fries are topped with caramelized kimchi and onions, scallions, cheese, sour cream, and spicy mayo.

Pork Mandu ($5 for 6 pieces)
We got the original recipe which contains meat (choice of pork or beef) and veggie fillings. For an additional $1.50, you can get them glazed with the same glaze used on the fried chicken. These taste pretty ordinary to me because I am Asian and every Asian thinks their own mother makes the best dumplings.

Bulgogi Tacos ($4 for 2 tacos)
We got one order with hot bean paste and one order with spicy mayo. This is no Kogi Truck but these are definitely good and this is the only place you can get bulgogi tacos in Ann Arbor.

Korean Style Fried Chicken (price varies depending on cut and combo)
I don’t have a photo but you can imagine what fried chicken looks like. These are made fresh on the spot after you order. The down side is that you have to wait about 20-30 minutes for these (call or order online ahead of time if you can). However, these are worth the wait. 
You can choose from soy garlic or hot & spicy glaze on the fried batter. The soy garlic glaze is amazing; I can honestly just eat the batter and be okay. The hot & spicy glaze didn’t have as much of a distinct taste as the soy garlic so if you like spicy, my suggestion is to get the soy garlic and ask for whatever hot sauce they have on hand for you to dip your chicken in. I also recommend drumsticks and thighs because dark meat has more flavor than white meat.
