If you happen to be craving for Korean Fried Chicken in the city of Kuala Lumpur, but yet want to avoid the crazy crowd and queue, drop by KyoChon outlet that happen to be in the ground floor of Menara Hap Seng. It’s a 10 minutes walk from Pavilion Shopping Mall, but worth the effort compared the crazy queue you have to go through compared to the Pavilion’s KyoChon outlet.
Among the franchisee, comparing KyoChon and 4Fingers, I would say KyoChon certainly does taste better. The chickens served are actually crunchy on the outside, because authentic Korean recipe require chicken to be double fried and the meat is still tender and juice on the inside. Coated with the appropriate amount of sauce, depending on what you order, I got to taste both. The original, soy garlic is a winner!
Pair with the side order and do remember to upgrade your plain white rice to Kimchi Fried Rice with Egg instead and you’ll be sure of a full, satisfying meal after that.
