Olé Wings & Tapas – Hidden Korean Gem #onRobson

The Robson Business Improvement Association and I have collaborated to bring you some of my recommendations for where to eat on Robson Street. As someone who frequents Robson Street a lot for great eats, it was definitely a challenge picking my favourites!

Korean food is one of my go-to comfort cuisines, and there’s nothing better than enjoying a cold beer with some crispy fried Korean chicken after a long work week. One of the best places to do that is at Olé Wings & Tapas. It’s located on the second floor of a building, so it can be easy to miss.

Olé Wings & Tapas has a wide selection of Korean food but they specialize in Korean fried chicken. Pair a couple dishes with their extensive alcohol lists and you’ll have yourself a great night.

Korean Style Sweet Chili Chicken ($24.00)

The chicken was fried perfectly, and because I went with boneless every piece was juicy and succulent without the hassle of bones. The sauce was mildly spicy and added a nice zing to the dish. I love that you can order half and half to try different flavours.

Kimchi Fried Rice ($14.00)

The kimchi fried rice had plenty of extra fermented kimchi, which is exactly how I like my fried rice. It’s a simple and homey dish but is a good supplement for all the fried chicken. The yolk from the egg added a nice creamy component to the mellow spice of the kimchi fried rice.

Butter Corn Cheese ($8.00)

If there’s corn cheese on the menu you can bet that I’ll order it. It’s a simple dish, but oh so delicious when it comes bubbling hot. The cheese is stringy and gooey and the corn is sweet.

Olé Wings & Tapas is a hole in the wall Korean fried chicken joint offering some solid Korean eats with no frills. It’s a great place to hang out after work or late at night with your friends catching up over some beer and fried chicken.
