Julia: I was scared to try them out at first because my BFF's mom told me that they taste better than BonChon and I was afraid of betraying my beloved chicken home. But when I did get the chance to try it out, I fell in love with their Honey Series wings. It was better than BonChon's. You could really taste the honey and spices in the glaze. I'm not that fond of their soy garlic though because it was too dry and fell short on the flavor.
Anna: I thought this was a knock-off BonChon at first. Wow, I was wrong. The servings are quite small for the price but Kyochon totally compensates with the flavor. I tried their Red Series wings and it actually stung, in a good way. It's not just full of spice but a mix of sweet and salty as well. You have to eat this with their Kimchi Rice.
Julia: My chicken home in the US. It is also the home of crispy as hell chicken tenders. Their chicken is very juicy and always cooked fresh Their fries are the bomb too. You should also definitely try their biscuits with honey.
Julia: I don't know much about Wingstop in the Philippines but here in the US it's too salty for me. On the other hand, their wings are very meaty and can make you full unlike any other wings dish, so it's worth your money. I'm not a big fan of spicy stuff so I usually get Hickory Smoked BBQ and Garlic Parmesan.
Daniela: This is totally different in the Philippines. The different flavors they offer make my palate dance with joy. Louisiana Rub and Cajun are the bomb dot com. The serving size may not seem worth your money but five wings are enough to satisfy your hunger.
Julia: The batter-chicken ratio is on point as well so it isn't 50% chicken and 50% deep fried flour. They go great with their honey mustard sauce! But they aren't that special but I'd still go back to them.
Julia: This is my most favorite in the world because of their original soy garlic. The crispy and mouthwatering chicken skin that gives you a taste of heaven. I recommend to get the regular chicken instead of chops because your gonna miss out the flavoring on the chicken skin. It's seasoned well and isn't too salty or sweet.
Anna: One of BonChon's most redeeming features is the crispiness of their chicken. It's like no other chicken restaurant I have ever tried. Any glaze you choose, it doesn't matter because they're all amazing.
These are just a few chicken restaurants out there. We cannot wait to try and cover them all and stuff ourselves with more fried chicken goodness.
