Had the Chicken combo and kimchi soup with rice at Bonchon Chicken. The taste of the kimchi was really rich, perhaps a little too overpowering for my liking. There were lots of kimchi and some seafood dumplings in it (fillings tasted like seafood paste and was a tad salty). The rice was also quite lumpy. The chicken on the otherhand was slightly crispy on the outside and tender. The spicy sauce was sufficiently spicy and really good. But at $10++, it's not very worth it. Overall, it's worth a tr

Full Bonchon Chicken review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/01/bonchon-chicken.html

A South Korean fried chicken franchise that represents 'home', Bonchon Chicken is an international brand popular for, what else? It's finger licking, twice deep fried chicken that is coated in a special sauce that sticks to the meat, not to your fingers. This makes Bonchon Chicken unique, offering the least messy Korean fried chicken anywhere.

The open concept ambience at Bonchon Chicken makes the restaurant feel casual and airy, enhanced by natural lighting. Design is functional modern, with a tinge of industrial vibe of steel and wood. Decor uses a form of typography, highlighting characteristics of the food at Bonchon Chicken, including their famous fried chicken.

Service at Bonchon Chicken is casual, efficient, and orderly. Food practically flies out the kitchen, arriving very quickly at your table. Staff aren't much for conversation, but I like that they can advice on the menu items. Passable, but not memorable service.

Their famous fried chicken is offered in either wings (plus drumlets), or drumsticks. They also have an option for a combo of both. Personally, I find the wings to be slightly better than the drumsticks, as the bigger piece of meat on the drumsticks is sometimes inconsistent. Otherwise, their fried chicken has a nicely crisp, savoury skin, and the meat within is bordering on moist and dry.

Besides the fried chicken, Bonchon Chicken also does serve several traditional Korean mains and appetizers. I find the soups to be quite good! Oddly, Bonchon Chicken also offers several Japanese appetizers on their menu. Portions at Bonchon Chicken are suitable for small eaters, and pricing is among the most affordable for this type of Korean cuisine.

after trying it in the states, we had gotten completely addicted to it, and ate it three days in a row there!

Ultra crispy and soaked with the juices of soy garlic. mmm
you can choose from two flavours: soy garlic or hot sauce. i personally prefer the garlic one! it’s $13.90 for the large portion of wings (12pcs) and $19.90 for the large portion of drumsticks (9pcs). the drumsticks are huge!! definitely worth it ;)

The one in USA is really wayyyyyyy better though! this one does little to match up unfortunately
it’s not as juicy, and the flavour is more subdued than the original. oh wells.

The menu allows you to choose either ala carte or combo set. We went for the small combo set ($14.90) which comprises of 6 wings and 2 drumsticks. You need to choose which flavor : soy garlic or hot. You can also mix the flavors for medium and large sets. We chose hot flavor. We were famished (it was close to 9pm).. but luckily we didn't have to bang our tables to demand our food to be served immediately..

We were famished (it was close to 9pm).. but luckily we didn't have to bang our tables to demand our food to be served immediately.. That's because within like 2 minutes after we made our order, the delicious fried chicken arrived. We were quite amazed at the serving speed. And we were grinning like happy kids after we bite into the chicken..

The moist fried crunchy skin that cracked in my mouth. My craving was instantly fixed as I chewed on the skin which was coated with flavorful sweet spicy sauce. It's definitely different from KFC. It was not overly oily. We loved the wings more than the drumstick. The drumstick meat was bland and dry. Overall, i think the wings and drumlets, not the drumsticks, were the highlight.

We also ordered a seafood tofu kimchi soup ($8.80). Based on menu description, it was supposed to contain squid, prawn. However, I only managed to find a miserable piece of prawn meat, not even a full prawn. There were a lot of tofus and kimchi instead. I was wondering if they made a mistake in serving the wrong soup.

Utensils on the table. Wet tissue. A metal bin, for us to throw the chicken bones in. Cute.

The highlight of the dinner: 6 wings + 2 drumsticks, this is the smallest portion. Additional rice at $2 each. For small appetite people, I guess just eating the chicken is enough.

One bite on the chicken, it is really addictive. Ordered the non-spicy ones. Its a mixture of sweet and slightly salty, with the crisp in the mouth. Taste like korean chips? It's perfect. Much better than KFC. Considered the best chicken wings.

We ordered scallion pancake which consists of scallop, prawn and squid. It tastes much like roti prata with minimal seafood fillings within. It tastes good with the teriyaki sauce on top. Quite filling too!
The plate which they used to serve was rather special, look at the picture above.

Didn't really like such open concept place. It seems like a food court style, but with specified section to sit according to the stall you patronizing. Food is worth a visit.

Had also ordered the volcano maki for $8.90, which I think is delicious. Like the melting cheese and the name totally suits the presentation of the maki
Also has the 6pcs takoyaki for $6.90. Not really te best but still acceptable. There is too much flour in it, making it seems filled with fillings from the outside.

This restaurant is said to be the original crispy fried chicken franchise from Korea and the franchise has been widely popular all over the world, even in USA, Thailand and Philippines. Comparing it to the other Korean fried chicken at ION Orchard's basement, I really couldn't tell much of a difference in the taste or texture. Even the sauces that they used are the same - Soy Garlic or Spicy. What was weird about Bonchon Chicken is that they also serve Japanese food. We ordered the Okonomiyaki (

We ordered the Okonomiyaki (a Japanese style savoury pancake) and a Phoenix Roll (typical sushi roll you get at Sushi Tei). They even gave us a complimentary plate of Edamame as a starter. That being said, I wasn't too impressed by their mixture of Japanese + Korean cuisine and I would still prefer 4fingers Crispy Chicken.

BonChon Chicken is a good place to hang out with mates, or when you are craving for finger food/snacks. I like their simple interior design too, nice for photographing. We ordered the Large Combo ($21.90), which consists of chicken wings x 10, chicken drumstick x 4, and you can pick two A side. We chose the edamame and coleslaw, though the portion of the side is relatively small, but quite good in taste. As for the chicken, it's so yummy!

One can choose either spicy or soy sauce flavour. I personally prefer the spicy, it's not overly hot, but with some tangy heat. I reckon the soy sauce flavour is slightly salty.

Anyway, I invited my friend to have dinner there. Since this place was still a bit new here, queue was quite long. We had to wait for a couple of minutes before we were seated inside. I kinda didn't like the whole dining concept because they share a space with some other restaurants. So, it was so noisy and the place was a bit cramped.

We ordered the spicy and soya sauce chicken drumsticks, and it took forever to serve. The chicken was just average. I would commend them for making the skin crispy and tasty. But that was it.... meat was just too plain. Maybe, they weren't able to cook it properly because there were too many people eating there, and their kitchen was understaffed....

Maybe, I would go back here again on a not so busy night to see if they just had a bad night....

I know in the picture there is only 7 pieces as the waiter who served our food said that they are still preparing the last piece and would serve it to us later. I thought it was rather strange as why can't they just serve it all at one go? After we have finished all 7 of it, there was still no sign of our last piece and we had to ask them for it, clearly they have forgotten about it.
