Alternative Seoul Itinerary: Kyochon Chicken vs KFC

What I miss most about Korea is its mouth-watering and crispy fried chicken!
To savour these fried chicken, I’ve visited KFC and Kyochon Chicken restaurant during my last trip in Seoul.

Kentucky Fried Chicken in Seoul came with rice and kimchi!

I wonder how KFC would survive amidst the plethora of fried chicken restaurants in Korea. Korean fried chicken is no doubt the best, compared to the ones offered by KFC.
How different? Kyochon’s fried chicken remained delicious and tender even after leaving it in the refrigerator overnight!

No wonder Kyochon has been selected by Koreans as the Best Chicken Restaurant 

Kyochon ‘Boneless’ Fried Chicken

I read that Korean fried chicken is crunchier and less greasy because the chicken is usually fried twice!

Kyochon Chicken restaurant in Dongdaemum is located in the building just beside exit 6 of Dongdaemun subway station (Line 1 or 4)

It’s situated on the 2nd floor, above KFC.
Its accessibility makes it a convenient hangout place to chill and relax after a shopping spree at Seoul’s famous shopping district.
Taiwanese celebrity chef, James, patronised Kyochon restaurant at Dongdaemun while he was filming his TV food show “Indulge in Life!” in Seoul.

Kyochon has a myriad of chicken choices on its menu.

Do you want spicy fried chicken? Or do you prefer fried chicken marinated with honey; or soy-garlic? They have it all!

Koreans serve their fried chicken with pickled radishes

And they often like to clink a glass of soju or beer with their friends while enjoying these crispy Korean fried.

Kyochon claims their chickens are 100% drug-free. So, rest assured and eat up!
