Kyochon Fried Chicken
I dropped by Kyochon Fried Chicken at Hongdae by coincidental. I had a plan before to eat at Kyochon Fried Chicken but didn’t plan to look for Hongdae branch, actually I wanted to eat at Dongdaemun Branch before. I shopped at Daiso and Miniso before felt so hungry. After that, I walked for a while and saw the amazing sign board of Kyochon Fried Chicken that made me starving directly.
Everybody loves fried chicken, form adult people until little children, including myself as well. I mean who can resist the temptation of hot crispy fried chicken in the middle of cold wind?? I didn’t think twice anymore and got into the restaurant which was already crowded by local young Korean teenagers. I sat in the corner and ordered one bottle of Soju (to keep me warm form cold weather) and and Garlic Soy and Spicy Sauce Chicken. I counted my plate there were 13 pieces of chickens. The portion was huge that might be enough for 2 people. I was very full and satisfied with the food here.
Besides Soju, Kyochon Chicken also serves beer as you can see from the picture. And if restaurant guest does not want to order any drink, Kyochon Chicken also provides free water that people can refill as much as they want.
There are many options on Kyochon Menu that people can choose such as: Kyochon Boneless Chicken,Kyochon Combo,Kyochon Fried Chicken,Kyochon Half/Half Combo,Kyochon Half/Half Original,Kyochon Half/Half Sticks,Kyochon Honey Combo,Kyochon Honey Original,Kyochon Original,Kyochon Red Combo,Kyochon Red Original,Kyochon Red Stick,Kyochon Stick with many sauce options such as garlic soy sauce,red spicy sauce,honey sauce,Jambalaya sauce, Honey mustard sauce. The price is very honest, ranged between 15,000-18,000 Won .
Besides chicken, Kyochon Chicken also gave free fruit side dish which complete the chicken very well. I have no idea what fruit it was but the side dish has sweet sour taste and was very fresh in my mouth after I ate the whole chicken. I could say that Kyochon Chicken could be the best fried chicken I had ever eaten in my life. Kyochon Chicken has tender,juicy meat with thin crispy texture skin that was freshly cooked after ordered that made my mouth watering again and again. Kyochon Chicken tasted mildly spicy, sweet and savory, the sauce and spice mixed very good.If I visit Seoul again next time, there is no doubt I will eat Kyochon Chicken again.

The restaurant atmosphere was very cozy and fast service. The foods were served very quickly,it didn’t took too long time and the waitress told me where to get the free cold water. Besides my table, it was a local Korean young teenagers who hangout cheerfully. When I went to queue at toilet, the group of young teenagers were very kind and even told me to go in toilet first although they have waited before my turn. It was very polite.
I am not sure will it taste the same for delivery because I have never try that before. I only ever try ate Kyochon Chicken at the restaurant. But if you cannot find any seats or restaurant is full at the time you come,why not try for Kyochon Delivery.
