Backoos is a Halifax-based restaurant that's drawing huge crowds for serving up authentic and traditional Korean dishes.
The small to-go restaurant is famous for its fried chicken as Backoos' owner noted that the dish has grown in popularity in North America over the past 10 years. What sets this restaurant's take on fried chicken apart from others, is its Half-and-Half chicken offering. The massive Half-and-Half dish is comprised of one whole chicken and arrives in a large takeout box separated down the middle; one side is sweet and spicy, and the other side is regular.
Backoos' owner states that the popularity of Korean food is directly reflective of Halifax's growing Korean population, and the expanding taste buds of North American-born foodies.
