In Malaysia, whenever talk about fried chicken, KFC will be the first name that pop up in our mind, since small whenever any celebration or wanting to have good meal, obviously KFC will be the first name to appear, who could not forget about crispy fried chicken and their slogan fingers licking good? Which is why I want to try Kyochon in One Utama that serve South Korea style fried chicken.
So when I am in One Utama, I am looking for quick meal to enjoy since I am so hungry and just back from KLIA 2 airport, I was thinking of Subway, but when I see people queue outside Kyochon restaurant, I want to give it a try, since the crowd seldom lies when it comes to food. Kyochon is fried chicken chain from South Korea and it has more than 300 chains in South Korea itself, and they are expanding to Asia aggressively. Fried chicken in Korea is famous, especially if you having it with beer, that is something Korean people do enjoy.
Salsal chicken, one of the recommendation dish if you are first time in Kyochon, is boneless chicken coated with special rice batter. I really like the crunchiness and juicy. It fits perfectly with garlic fried rice that I order to eat along with.
The second order will be spicy chicken drumsticks. Korean always fond with anything that spicy, take example Kimchi, or if you want to have some fire in your mouth, try fire noodle Samyang Ramen. The spiciness is kinda mild, which I think to cater for bigger crowd, but you can ask for spicy chilli from the waiters if you want to have it spicier.
Kyochan also engaged famous Korean star, as shown from the picture above. I think he is kinda famous in South Korea and some other countries.
At this moment, whenever I want to have fried chicken, I will be thinking Kyochon rather than KFC, as the chicken less gease, and they are freshly prepared, which you need to wait around 15 mins before it arrived at your table. One of biggest reason why Kyochon is they did not put MSG, and they fried their chicken with Canola Oil, which way healthier compare with normal cooking oil, which KFC using. I like the taste of the chicken, so I am giving one star for Kyochon, although it is chain restaurant, but you need to go and try to know how good the quality is.
The place is located at ground floor new wing, opposite BMS organic, and pretty much nearby cold storage and subway.
