THERE IS A NEW cult of hardcore devotees in the United States, Bangkok, and Dubai – and they are staunchly addicted to fried chicken. BonChon Chicken, to be exact. And the great thing is, the “best chicken in America” according to the New York Times, Esquire, and GQ Magazine, is now in Manila.
The result of a special cooking technique that renders the fat to create a crunchier skin, BonChon Chicken is super crispy yet light and not greasy. It’s characterized by a thin, crackly, almost transparent crust enveloping hot, moist meat that’s coated with a hauntingly addictive glaze that clings tightly to the skin. BonChon’s soy-garlic sauce is deliciously tangy, while spicy builds up nice and slow to a friendly heat. Both are blended in Korea and shipped to stores worldwide, and both are superb.
In Korea, the typical accompaniment to this mouth-wateringly addictive fried chicken is cubes of pickled radish and plenty of cold, fizzy soda or beer; the combination produces an irresistible repetition of salt and spice, cold and hot, briny and sweet, crunchy and tender.
BonChon’s Special Cooking Method
- This produces an ethereal crunch that’s like no other.
- It allows the sauce to be absorbed, adding delicious flavor without making it soggy.
- This way of frying renders the fat, making BonChon chicken a delicious indulgence that’s actually, even healthier.
The original “secret sauces” are often imitated, but never replicated. BonChon’s highly addictive soy garlic glaze and hot and spicy sauce are made of premium spices, blended in Korea, and shipped to stores worldwide. Soy garlic is deliciously tangy, while spicy builds up nice and slow to a friendly heat.
