Beyond Manila Bites: Kyochon

Here's the second event of the Beyond Manila Bites food crawl series: Global Meets Local! The event was held at UP Town Center where we featured EIGHT of the metro's international and local best comfort food stores!

Last August 13, 2016, Global Meets Local brought together people from different fields of the food industry and other influencers for a whole day food celebration at UP Town Center! Through this series, ForkSpoonManila (Alexis Manuel Deocaris) overhauled the traditional food crawl where the media and influencers can share their experiences and impressions regarding the food, through of course, social media. During the event, we not only got to socialize with each other, but more importantly, we met a lot of the people behind these restaurants and discovered the stories behind their dishes and store concepts.

For me, the event was also a great way to sharpen my photography skills. Even though people were technically taking pictures of the same dishes, all our photos came out so differently! So yes, I definitely learned a few things from people like Cy Ynares (@thebaldbakerph), Iza Gallego (@iza.gram), Mark and Bianca Tan (@eatsplorations), JP Gonzaga (@chubbyperohappy), and Lucky Alabado (@discovermnl)! Check out the posts on Instagram tagged #BeyondManilaBites to see for yourself :)
Different from other brands' recipes, Kyochon's thin batter and double frying method remove excess oil, offering a clean and light taste. The secret of crispy but moist chicken is Kyochon's 20-year know-how, and Kyochon's oil is exclusively for deep-frying. Because they value quality ingredients and customers' health the most, they only use domestically grown, natural ingredients. Their chicken contains the lowest amount of sodium among the industry, by naturally aged meat without curing.

What we tried: Honey Garlic Spring Chicken, Honey Series, Original Series, Red Series, and Soonsal Strips.
