Bon Chon Chicken has taken the fast food scene by storm, introducing their crunchy skinned double fried Korean style chicken wings to the hungry public. Whether you are a fan of their soy garlic sauce like us or their hot and spicy one, you just can’t wait to have your weekly or daily crunch. I got to try some of their offerings that were recently added by the local franchisee and some are even being adapted in other countries. From seafood to salads and even frozen yogurt, it seems Bon Chon has all the bases covered.
Fish and Chips (P125). Fish fillet coated in the same soy garlic that is used for the chicken. You can opt for the spicy version also. Crispy outer skin with flaky and tender fish inside. Perfect for those who want a lighter alternative to chicken.
Crispy Squid Rice (P125). After fish, Bon Chon applies their trademark sauce on rings of squid. Each ring is perfectly fried and coated with
Caesar Salad (P125). Complete with Parmesan cheese, fresh croutons and a creamy sauce.
Ginger Tofu Salad (P125). A light salad of greens carrots and fried tofu pieces with a zesty ginger sauce. The trick to this is just to pour the sauce in the salad, cover it up and then shake it all up.
Bulgogi Ricebox (P125). Its ok but not really the most authentic tasting of bulgogis especially after having a taste of Sariwon‘s version.
Chapchae (P75). Chewy sweet potato noodles cooked in soy, garlic and sesame oil. A perfect companion to your chicken or seafood main dish. The flavors just really agree with me.
Of course there mus be chicken in wings, drumstick and the boneless chops variant. I’m not a fan of the drumsticks since I feel they lack flavor because of the thicker meat. Lauren loves the chops and so do I, no bones means no distractions digging into the crispy meat.
Finally for dessert, Ko-Yo (P70) in Banoffee Pie and Blueberry Torte. Both have crushed grahams in between layers of frozen yogurt. For those who like it simple, the also have it available plain, Ko-yo Mini (P35).
It seems there are more and more reasons to eat at Bon Chon chicken, whatever gets your fancy. From salad to dessert, they have something for everyone.
