Well that was fast.

Tuesday night, Patch told you Maria's of Royal Oak closed and Wednesday Gangnam Chicken opened at 112 Catalpa Dr.

Owner Paul Lee has more than 30 years experence in the restaurant business and Korean-style deep fried chicken served with spicy, soy garlic or buffalo sauce is his specialty. 

"Korean chicken is a big sensation right now in New York and Los Angles," Lee said.

Besides chicken, the menu includes grilled rice balls, stews, kimchi fries and several noodle dishes.

There are also a few Italian items on the menu, including pesto cavatappi, spaghetti a la carbonara, fettuccine alfredo and lasagna.

Prices range from $9-$19.

The restaurant is open from 11:30 a.m to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 11:30 a.m to 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday; noon to 10 p.m. Sunday.

I visited Gangnam today. On a scale of 1 to 10 including food, and service a total score of 7.5. The service was slow from arrival to leaving about an hour and 10 mins. Number of customers sitting in Gangnam 8. I had a small combo two wings and legs $6. I will say, the spicy chicken was excellent. The garlic chicken was OK. The Kimchi was good but not spicy enough. The rice balls with cheese was good but $7 NO! It was the size of a pop tart - - just one and not balls. I walked out smelling like chicken. Will I returen to Gangnam YES only for a carry - - call head by 20 or 25 mins.
