Calling all fried chicken lovers! Pelicana, which was founded in South Korea in 1982, is a leading fried chicken brand with over 3000 stores across Asia, Australia, China, Canada, and the USA. With a reputation for quality, taste, and freshness, Pelicana has opened a new store in Angel Central, located above Monsoon.

As one of the first brands to commercialise fried chicken for delivery, it has become an essential part of Korean food culture. Pelicana’s array of traditional dishes, alongside vegan and vegetarian options, focus on four signature flavours – classic crispy, sweet chilli, soy sauce, and volcano. The ground floor of the Angel Central unit will be a dedicated takeaway offering, with the first floor a restaurant space seating 80 covers.

Mr Kim, owner of Pelicana, said: “Islington’s Angel Central is the perfect location to continue our growth within the UK. Pelicana is a brand that delivers great taste and stays true to its roots, and we are confident that Angel Central’s shoppers and diners will enjoy our recipes, as we establish ourselves within the Islington community.”
