Holaaa patients! Today's post is about fried chicken... Yuppp! It's the Korean Franchise that everyone is talking about, Bon Chon.
I tried their outlet in Gandaria after an IMAX session with Will Smith. The one to blame for this insane craving of Bon Chon is Wadir Perek. She talks and talks and talks about how yummy Bon Chon is every single day (maybe Bon Chon hired her to become their spoke person) So finally, I gave in.
The decor is nice. Minimal design with Korean touch here and there. The light colored wooden furniture radiates a warm and cozy feel. Even though I didn't sit on a sofa but it was quite comfortable.
1. Bulgogi Wrap (Rp. 22.000)
This is Mamah's choice to support her diet -_- Hmm... IMO, the wrap is quite small. It was good but not great. The beef bulgogi is flavorful, tender but not as delish as I expected. FYI, Bon Chon campaign healthy lifestyle, so maybe they cut the salt and oil hence producing this rather bland wrap. Good for diet, no good for palate.
2. Gyoza (Rp. 16.000)
4 pcs of fried gyoza with chicken filling. The taste is dominated by garlic and the chicken is a bit too much. I want my gyoza to be chewy with small chunks of meat, not a fried skin with chicken ball filling.
3. Original Strips Small (Rp. 27.500)
4 chicken strips with original sauce. The sauce is made of fruit juice so it's rather sweet. I like the subtle sweetness of the sauce but I hate the tough chicken breast. It was dry, not hot and difficult to swallow. There is literary no fat in that strips and it was dry as dessert. No good :(
4. Spicy Wing Box + Powerpack (Rp. 42.000)
2 wings with spicy sauce, rice, drinks, 4 Bon Chon Bites and 2 Mocca Mochi. The wings are yummy!! Spicy and sweet, hot and tender. The crispy skin is sooo good. I think I can take 5 of these without any trouble :p The mochi was yummy too. Skin is thin but chewy, mocca is cream tastes good. The Bon Chon Botes is not good.... Rather cold and basically a smaller kind of chicken strips.
I don't recommend this if you are craving for fried chicken BUT if you crave chicken wings, this is one of the best.
