Seoul Food and Cheeseburger Poutine in BC Place

It's our first time in BC Place for the year. My primary goal is to take pictures of the menu to write this food guide blog post. My secondary goal is to try new items inside BC Place.

Korean-style Fried Chicken from Seoul Food in BC Place

For tonight, we ordered from the new concession stand: Seoul Food, serving Korean-style fried chicken. We ordered the Spicy Korean Glaze and Original Korean Fried Chicken.

Spicy Korean Glaze
Crispy Korean fried chicken drizzled with a spicy Korean glaze. Served on a bed of fries.

Original Korean Fried Chicken
Crispy Battered Chicken Breast, crisp lettuce, cheddar cheese, and special house sauce.

Unfortunately, both were dry as a dessert. So it drained moisture from my mouth that the first bite of the Cheeseburger Poutine (a new item from The Poutinerie) felt dry. I cannot in good conscience recommend Seoul Food. My husband pointed out that it was stale and must have been sitting there for at least 10 minutes. The flavour of the chicken was delicious, but it was so dry. If it came out fresh to order, it could be one of the must-try items inside BC Place.

Because I was so disappointed with the fried chicken's dryness, I ordered the new Cheeseburger Poutine from The Poutinerie. The first bite felt dry, which I blamed on my earlier meal, but the cheeseburger was surprisingly good. I love the onions and how juicy the topping is. Flavour-wise, I still recommend the Shortrib Poutine.

Cheeseburger Poutine
Ground beef, diced onions, cheese curds, shredded cheddar, red wine gravy, and green onion.

I think I would like the cheeseburger poutine more if they find a way to melt the shredded cheese somehow.

The food may be bad this evening, thankfully the Vancouver Whitecaps FC won 5-0 tonight.
