Was going through some of my photos as there is an issue with my external drive, so while backing them up, I browsed through some of food albums, just to torture myself.
I came across this meal from KyoChon 1991. Too bad they are still not in Ipoh yet or I would go there for my lunch today!
Have you heard of KyoChon before, or have you already dined at one of the restaurants? Did you know that “Kyo” means wisdom and enlightenment, while “Chon” means village?
The founder of KyoChon, Chairman Kwon Won Kang, hopes his diners will have the satisfying memory of their hometown when eating KyoChon’s unique Korean-style fried chicken.
By the way, KyoChon has three promises to their guests: to never serve fast food, to use 100% natural ingredients and to use only the freshest, healthiest chickens.
KyoChon is a full-service restaurant that only serves freshly cooked food made of natural, Korean-grown farm products, without growth hormones.
The birds are fried exclusively with Canola Oil. There’s no trans fat, or MSG, and it is low in sodium. Compared to other fried chicken, Kyochon’s grease and fat content is very much reduced.
Also, you might have noticed from these photos that the chicken pieces seem smaller. This is because they are thinly-battered, all the better to taste the juicy, tender and succulent meat.
My Red Pepper Wingette & Drumette Set from the red pepper series was seriously HOT!!! Even the glass of Sparkling Yuza failed to douse the fire in my mouth. Haha! It still surprises me that Koreans can really take spicy food.
