An umbrella-holding valet welcomes me at the door of BBQ Chicken Myanmar, in Bogyoke Aung San Road. She asks how many people there are in my party and shows me to my table. I am surrounded by the modern wood décor of this new Korean restaurant.

The beautifully bounded and photographed menu is a coffee table art-book of Korean cuisine, with prices matching its opulence. Chicken, pizza, pasta, rice and coffee sections offer a selection of Kang Jung chicken, olive tender strip salad and carbonara pasta. Their signature Golden Olive Chicken starts at K3900 for two pieces, K7600 for four, or K15000 for eight pieces. Salads and pastas start around K6500.

The food is served as if it was lifted from the pages of the menu. Mounds of perfectly placed chicken are stacked on platters, leave nothing out of order.

The two rooms on the ground floor are pleasantly decorated, with the top floor hosting comfortable lounge chairs and booths, but the music creates an awkward addition. 50 Cent and Little Kim rap with other hip hop artists complete with plenty of explicit lyrics. The chorus of one song gives a good 20 F-words within two bites of the meal. All this, while well-trained staff respectfully attend to your table. BBQ Chicken Myanmar is well worth a try if you’re craving a special type of chicken.
