After all the hiking earlier, we decided that we really deserved a good treat! Of course, how can we miss out fried chicken while in Korea?
We made our enquiries with the hotel staff, and apparently, one of the most popular franchise for home delivery was 교촌치킨 Kyochon Chicken 橋村炸雞. We had initially requested for her to help us place an order to be delivered to the hotel, but she did a quick online search and found an outlet near us 😀
Initially, we started with a Korean menu, and one of the staff gave us some recommendations. Later on, we found another menu with some English explanation 😀
Essentially, there are 4 different flavours of Sweet, Soy Garlic, Spicy, Original and Boneless, and you can choose different parts of the chicken via Whole Chicken, Wings and Drumlets, Wings, Drumlets and Thigh, and Thigh.
In the end, we had the following:
- 교촌윙 (Kyochon Wing) Kyochon Signature Soy Garlic Wings and Drumlets 橋村大蒜醬油雞翅棒腿 (₩17,000): I must say that I’m not really into fried chicken, but I guess that was because I have never tried Kyochon Chicken before. This was deliciously awesome! Not only was it flavourful, the skin was thin and super crispy, while the meat was very tender and juicy! The sauce was a tad salty, but I think it would go really well with beer 🙂 We thought it was a rather huge basket of chicken, but we wiped them out clean fairly quickly.
- 교촌허니오리지날 Honey Whole Chicken 橋村蜂蜜整隻雞 (₩15,000): We were so in love with the chicken that we decided we had to try another flavour. This time, we got the whole chicken version, and because hubby and I were not very good with super spicy stuff, we stuck to the safer honey flavour. It was a tad too sweet for us, but the crispy skin and lovely meat was still super yummy! We preferred the wings and drumlets though, as not everyone eat the various parts of the chicken.
- 교촌샐러드 Kyochon Salad 橋村沙拉 (₩5,000): We had ordered the salad to make the meal less sinful, but to our pleasant surprise, the it was awesome! In particular, that blueberry vinaigrette dressing was oh-so-addictive and refreshing! There was also an alternative orange dressing option.
The complimentary pickled radish also complemented the chicken well, and we totally enjoyed the meal! No regrets, despite getting a sore throat soon after. It was worth it 😛 When is the franchise coming to Singapore, pretty please? 😀
