I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that most Pinoys love chicken dishes. Proof of this is the wide variety of recipes that Filipinos were able come up with, just so we can have several ways to enjoy manok– there’s tinola, adobong manok, chicken inasal, the list goes on! We even eat chicken feet and call it adidas, and grill chicken intestines so we can have the sinfully tasty isaw!
Our local cuisine is already rich in chicken-based recipes that you’d be proud to serve to your foreign friends. However, chicken has so much potential and there’s a lot that we can do other than the usual fried chicken that we’re used to. Sometimes, it’s refreshing to bite into a new beat don’t you think?
One of the fast-food restaurants I know which has mastered the art of preparing unique tasting yet distinctly delicious chicken, is BonChon. From its original home in South Korea, it has now become a well-loved global phenomenon, and has brought to the Philippines the unique flavors of K-Style chicken that are distinctly Korean yet familiar and enjoyable to the Pinoy palate.
These flavors that I’m talking about are Soy Garlic, Hot & Spicy, Honey Citrus, and Crunchy Garlic. What I loved about BonChon’s flavors is that they are tasty enough for the sauces to be just an option, unlike in other restaurants where having a gravy is necessary for you to enjoy your meal. The Soy Garlic is definitely a must-try if you wish to have a taste of BonChon’s perfect fusion of Korean and American flavours. Yum!
If you’re a regular BonChon diner like me, you’ll probably notice that it takes them a bit more time to prepare your meal. This is because every order is freshly prepared in the kitchen to make sure that you get that perfect, deliciously non-greasy chicken you deserve. Trust me, it’s worth the wait.
