Thanks to the hit Korean drama “Business Proposal,” Goobne Jakarta has become the first branch in Southeast Asia. Goobne opened its first outlet in Jakarta back in 2018, long before the drama was even created.
As of now, Goobne Indonesia has several branches in Jakarta, Tangerang, and Bali. So, what’s on Goobne’s menu that’s now often referred to as “Shin Ha Ri chicken”? Let’s take a closer look.
Goobne, Born in 2005
Since the release of the drama featuring Kim Sejeong and Ahn Hyo-seop, the name Goobne has once again come into the spotlight. In “Business Proposal,” the character Shin Ha Ri’s family is said to own a fried chicken restaurant called Goobne.
The scene where Shin Ha Ri and Kang Tae Moo cook fried chicken together for a guest left a lasting impression. Many people have become curious about whether “Goobne,” the chicken from “Business Proposal,” actually exists.
Turns out, Goobne Chicken has been around since 2005 in Korea. As a famous healthy chicken restaurant in Korea, several popular idols like Girls’ Generation and EXO have served as Goobne Chicken’s brand ambassadors.
The restaurant has many branches in Korea and has expanded to China, Japan, Macau, and Hong Kong. Goobne Jakarta is their first branch in Southeast Asia and has been operating since 2018.
No. 1 Grilled Chicken in Korea
The name Goobne adopts the Korean word “gubda,” which means “to roast.” Unlike typical Korean-style fried chicken, Goobne chicken is actually roasted. This makes Goobne’s chicken healthier because it doesn’t use oil during the cooking process.
But don’t worry about the taste and texture; Goobne’s roasted chicken is just as delicious as typical Korean fried chicken. The outside of the chicken remains crispy, while the inside is incredibly juicy. How is this possible?
Goobne’s roasted chicken is cooked for an extended period using modern roasting techniques. Marinated chicken is roasted in a sophisticated oven for a whole day. As a result, the roasted chicken is juicy, with the flavors penetrating perfectly to every fiber. Moreover, all the seasonings used are from Korea, ensuring that the authentic Korean roasted chicken taste remains 100% intact.
Signature Goobne Menu
When you check out Goobne Jakarta’s menu, you’ll find that all of it is “no pork, no lard.” So, the food is halal, even though it’s a direct branch of Goobne in Korea. Like other Korean restaurants in Indonesia, they also serves a variety of Korean dishes with flavors adjusted to suit Indonesian tastes. Some of Goobne’s signature dishes that you must try are:
This is the real taste of Goobne’s roasted chicken. The marinated chicken has a crispy texture on the outside but is incredibly juicy when you bite into it. The golden-brown color indicates that the chicken is perfectly cooked. It’s so tempting!

3. Deep Cheese
Hey, cheese lovers, gather around! Goobne Deep Cheese is truly cheesy, from the skin to deep within the chicken meat. The combination of creamy cheddar powder and blue cheese powder dominates in the best way. It will make you keep savoring every bite, including continuing to consume the cheese powder even after the chicken is gone.
