The Philippines is known for its best tasting food. The many delectable dishes that we have is truly at par with what’s best in the world and this we should be proud of. In Bacolod, we have the famous chicken inasal, a kind of roast chicken served on skewers. But since we’re chicken lovers, we like our chicken cooked in any way, whether it’s glazed, fried, or simmered.
Having said that, welcoming BonChon, the restaurant chain from Korea known for its world-renowned crispy chicken, definitely makes every Filipino happy. Actually, it’s been here for 4 years and now has 91 branches all over the country, with a strong presence in major cities like Cebu, Davao, Baguio, General Santos City, Cagayan de Oro, Boracay and now in Bacolod. They will soon open their first branch in Iloilo City at the end of the year or first quarter of 2016.
BonChon’s branch in Bacolod had a grand opening last September 18, 2015 at the North Wing, SM City Bacolod. This branch is a franchise of Ms. Anna Ramos, who along with managing director Mr. Alexander Scott Tan, welcomed some media and bloggers to the opening to introduce the resto’s products.
BonChon serves fried chicken that’s super crispy yet light and non greasy, with hot moist juicy meat, and sauced with its addicting soy garlic, spicy, honey citrus or crunchy garlic glaze, at affordable prices. Their goal of having a branch in every major city in the Philippines is fast becoming a reality.
Aside from their chicken, they have a wide range of dishes. Solo diners may order Ricebox Meals featuring the world-renowned chicken with a rice and drink with the option to upgrade to the Seoul Fried Rice.
