[Seoul] Other than Kyochon and Bonchon, the other popular Korean fried chicken chain shop you can find in Seoul is Kkanbu Chicken.
Set up in 2006, “Kkanbu” means “the same team”, representing a best-friend or comrades relationship customers should have with their brand.
The variety at Kkanbu is extensive, considering it mainly sells chicken – Garlic Soy Chicken, Hot Snow Chicken, Old School Chicken, Kkanbu Kara (soy sauce aged at low temperate as sauce), Boneless Chicken with Tteokbokki, Spicy Soy Chicken, Crispy Chicken, Garlic Roast Chicken, Green Onion Chicken and Tender Sweet Chicken.
Price range between 14,000 to 20,000 Won (SGD$16.90 – $24.15).
While fried chicken is generally still the more popular choice, they have managed to carved out a specialty in roast chicken – popular with younger customer base, and those who want supposedly lower calorie meal.
For a start, you may want to go for the ‘more manageable’ Kkanbu Crispy 6 Pack (18,000 Won, SGD$21.70). Yeah, they seldom come in individual sets.
Worthy to mention: The accompanying radish cubes were refreshingly tasty.
Ordered Fried Chicken Tenders as I was feeling lazy (and full), and they turned out to be what you could wish for: Crispy, moist and juicy, not too oily, well-seasoned with spices… and a very huge portion.
Kkanbu is a chain restaurant, so you can probably find its existence all around Seoul.
