Kyochon Chicken is Finally in the Philippines!

There's a new chick in town, and it's going to change your fried chicken experience!


Last April 30, 2014, I had the chance to join the VIP lunch hosted by Kyochon in Megamall.



We were treated to an afternoon of good food. I don't get many cheat days, so I have to really choose where I spend them. It looks like I made a good choice :D

Rice Cake Soup

Soup will always have a special place in my heart.
The chicken based broth had a deep, savory taste that can only be acquired by hours of boiling. I was told the chicken was boiled whole to ensure all the flavors of the chicken is infused in the broth. 



Chicken Salad with Blueberry Dressing

I was overjoyed to find something in the menu that my diet program agrees with. Crisp greens, red cabbage, cherry tomatoes and a piece of perfectly grilled chicken fillet that is seasoned very lightly to give way to the blueberry dressing. Tart and fruity with a hint of sweetness, their blueberry vinaigrette was light and refreshing. The serving was good enough for 4 as we had other dishes to sample.

Happiness is finding good healthy food within your budget.


The Chicken Series

The cardinal rule in making good ol' fried chicken is making sure you get the oil temperature right. But what happens when you add a twenty year old , double deep frying technique  glazed in either soy, honey or chili? You get Kyochon Chicken's  Korean-style fried chicken: delicate and crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. 

 

Soy Series

Light and flavorful. The rich flavors of garlic and soy make this a classic must try.


Honey Series

Coated in a sweet honey sauce, the Honey series makes for a succulent treat.



Soonsal Series

Boneless chicken fillet lightly coated in a rice crispy batter, the Soonsal series demands a limelight of its own. Its delicate flavor is contrasted by a thick, sweet, barbecue sauce that will surely tickle your taste buds.

 

Red Series

3/4 of the people in our table fell head over heels over this spicy treat (yes, including me <3). I love how the spice lingered around my mouth and slowly burned without being too overpowering. This is the perfect beer mate.



The only sad part? I wasn't able to pair it with beer! If you haven't heard, Korean Style fried chicken goes best with mekju (beer) thus the term, ChiMek. *Insert My Lover From the Stars fantasy dinners*

Good chicken is best shared with great people

I wouldn't mind sharing it with their gorgeous new endorser Lee Min Ho. hahah, I know, I know -dream on, Ice.
