Kyochon 1991 (Malaysia) | 교촌치킨, One Utama Shopping Centre
Finally, Kyochon is in Malaysia! Apparently it has been operate since end of 2013. Kyochon 1991 (교촌치킨 or 橋村) founded in 1991 (that explain why Kyochon 1991) is currently one of the largest Korean fried chicken restaurants in South Korea. If you googled and search what to eat in Korea - Kyochon fried chicken will appear in one of the must eat food if you visit Korea. They now have over 1000 restaurants worldwide, first expanding to USA, then follow by China, Thailand, Philippines, Indoesia and now Malaysia.
Kyochon not only famous with it's fried chicken, also famous with it's ambassador Super Juniors! Super Juniors has been the ambassador for Kyochon 1991 since 2009 and their latest spokesperson is Lee Min Ho. So when you enter to Kyochon, you will be welcome by Lee Min Ho standing poster near the entrance and seeing big poster of Super Junior on the wall while dine in.
So yesterday, we have our lunch at Kyochon, 1 Utama and we tried the all the four flavour which is Original Soy Series, Red series, Honey Series and Salsal Series, all wingette and drumette. Their fried chicken menu is simple - you can choose either wingette & drumette or drumstick for each flavour.
The first 2 flavours served is The Original Soy Series (left) and Red series (right) wingette & drumette. The original soy flavour is the shop's original recipe - taste like lightly coated with soya sauce & garlic (?) but not garlic bites spotted. While Red series is hot and spicy. According to the waiter the spicy was came from Korea red chilli pepper.
Third flavour is Salsal Strips (most Right in the picture / beside red series). Salsal strips is boneless chicken breast coated with special rice batter. It comes with a choice of 3 dipping sauce - Jambalaya, Honey mustard or Red (Spicy). We choose honey mustard (the yellow dipping sauce in the picture).
Enjoying the fried chickens while waiting for the fourth flavour ready. The waiter has informed us we might need to wait for a little after place the order. Reason why is the fried chicken will be cook only after order placed so customer can enjoy the fresh and crunchy fried chicken.
The fourth flavour serve about 5 minutes later after the first 3 served ~ The honey series wingette & drumette - taste sweet but not overdo, the best among all.
We finished all 20 wingette and drumette (each flavour has 5 pcs) with 4 flavours in a blink! Total bill cost RM54.10 Husband say the portion is too small for the price that he pay for the fried chicken in other Korean fried chicken shop haha. Anyway it is good to be enjoy the famous Korean fried chicken shop in town without travel to Korea. Good news is Kyochon 1991 is Halal so our muslim friend can also enjoy it.
