Enlightenment doesn’t always have to occur under a tree. Sometimes, enlightenment can happen while you have your sleeves rolled up upon devouring a plate of crispy fried chicken with your fingers. KyoChon 1991 entitles you to just that: think succulent, tender chicken meat coated in smooth batter that’s robust and packed with fresh flavour. The award-winning South Korean franchise has garnered fans from the US, Thailand, China, Philippines, Indonesia and now, Malaysia. KyoChon 1991 uses 100% natural, zero anti-biotic young chickens that are 30-35 days old in order to achieve juicy succulence as compared to using older chickens that have more muscle tissue. Every wing and drumette is prepared fresh upon ordering and expertly sauced by hand. If you tire of the same old ‘eleven herbs and spices’ recipe, then you’ll be delighted to know that KyoChon 1991 offers other options that will tickle your taste buds. The paper-thin skin is crispy and healthy, thanks to having less batter and more meaty goodness. Also, the fried chicken is cooked with natural ingredients and fried with canola oil that’s good for health, thanks to its high nutritional value. You may have to pay a little more or wait a little longer than at a fast food joint, but if quality and freshness if what you’re aiming for, then these guiltfree chicks are worth the wait and the price.
