The Philippines not only seems to be crazy about Korean Pop songs or Koreanovelas but also with their chicken. The past year have seen a wave of Korean Chicken restaurants and it is still growing. It’s no surprise now that Korea’s popular fried chicken brand, Kyochon will find its way in our shores. With more than 1,000 stores in South Korea alone since they opened and expanding worldwide, KyoChon is not afraid to be late in the Philippines korean chicken market. Like their superstar endorser Lee Min Ho who loves their chicken, they are banking in the natural honest to goodness flavor that Filipinos would also love like the koreanovelas the restaurant has appeared at. Happyfoodies got to try out Kyochon chicken just a week after they opened to see (and taste) what sets their Korean chicken apart.
I always pass by Bonchon at SM Megamall but never had the chance to try it before. One reason why? It’s always full and I somehow lack the patience to wait especially when I’m really hungry. Good thing your Happyfoodies were invited for a taste test at one of their newer branches at Bonifacio High Street. This time I got the chance to get to know what makes people go crazy about this Korean Chicken. As it turned out, Happyfoodies will discover there’s more to Bonchon than its popular crunchy chicken.
