I'm editing my review to tell you the real story. A group of friends and I were coming from PMX convention, where we ended up forgetting to eat the entire day and had very little to drink, and therefore were extremely hungry and thirsty.
My ex had invited us to a friend's birthday at a kbbq (the one next door) and so we headed over. For some reason the GPS didnt know where we were, and led us 9 blocks down. So we walked. Now we were STARVING TO DEATH and DYING IF DEHYDRATION.
We caught my Ex in the bar next door drinking. He knew I did not like it when he drank, and if he was to be out drinking, never to invite me. They informed us the wait for the KBBQ was VERY long, and we informed them we could not wait.
What do we do?! we thought, desperately. We were so HUNGRY!
There's a Chicken Store.. let's try it. So we entered and took a table. I had seen the Sal Sal chicken rice bowl on the front window of the store, and was determined to order it. This was back when they had fountain sodas, which came out slowly.
Now, Kyochon is NOT for people who are starving, in fact, we were regretting the choice when spicy and honey wings were ordered.
By the time the food finally DID come out, we were asleep in our chairs, essentially, but as soon as we took our first bites of this, we realized that any amount of starvation was WELL worth it for KYOCHON.
The spicy wings were unedible to me, and I am a spicy fanatic, the honey wings are AMAZING, but best of ALL
Was the Sal Sal Chicken Rice bowl.
I order the Sal Sal bowl with two sauces, one that comes with it, and one extra. I then dump one on, essentially, and tilt the bowl so it collects at the bottom after coating the rest. I dip the chicken piece into the sauce, for about 5 seconds, then scoop it and some sauce rice into my mouth.
This is heaven. When the poppy stuff on the outside has just soaked through, a crunchy but not dry, omg...
So I have been going every since. At 7pm on a weekday its impossible to wait less than an hour. But is it worth it to me? Every time.
I recently found out there is one in a mall nearer to me. I went to it and although not IDENTICAL to a T it was very close in deliciousness so I'm going to switch to it to avoid the 1 hours lines.
I love you, Kyochon.
