Kogi Bulgogi’s New KPOP Chicken

April 28, 2014

It is always a joy to visit the Kogi Bulgogi store in Gateway. It is like visiting a friend’s cozy home with its modern interior and welcoming ambiance. I wrote about the Kogi Bulgogi Gateway here. Its accessible location, relaxing ambiance, and hearty Korean menu make it the perfect venue for our get-together and dinner dates. I remember visiting the restaurant twice in a week for the Holiday get-togethers with friends last December.

Last week, I was back at Kogi Bulgogi with blogger friends to welcome a new dish joining its robust offerings. Say hello to, KPOP Chicken!

Spicy Soy Kpop Chicken

KPOP Chicken is Kogi Bulgogi’s version of juicy, crunchy and tasty Korean Fried Chicken. Here’s a bit of trivia, KPOP Chicken is also known asYangnyeom chicken in Korean, a dish prepare in a Korean style often served at home. Often consumed during meals and eaten at bars or taken as snacks after meals in Korean.

The KPOP Chicken comes in two flavors – the Sweet Soy KPOP and the Spicy Soy KPOP.

Sweet Soy KPop Chicken

True to its description, KPOP Chicken is tasty, crunchy and juicy. You have to eat it while it is served hot to enjoy its “crispiness”.  The white meat is tender and flavourful. I am thinking it goes well with ice-cold soda or beer, while enjoying a good movie at home. Too bad, the Kogi Bulgogi Gateway store doesn’t have a TV set to complete the experience 😉 The store does serve beer though 🙂

The Spicy Soy KPOP Chicken has a balanced hint of spiciness (not too strong for those weak at spicy food); while the Sweet Soy is a perfect blend of zesty soy and sweet. I always go for the spicy one 😉

The new KPOP Chicken is very affordable. You have the option to combine the flavors in your order.

  • 4 pcs: Php 125
  • 6 pcs: Php 185
  • 12 pcs: Php 365

Of course, aside from these new offerings, Kogi Bulgogi still carries our favorites:


Kimci Rice

California Roll

After a good meal, we had this yummy Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Bars (also available in Kogi Bulgogi!)

If you think that the launch was all about good food, we had fun games too! The kind of event I always love to attend with equally fun people.

We had a little trivia game about Korean food and Kogi Bulgogi, and the first 5 bloggers to get 5 correct answers won a DVD from Mr. Mix of Everything 🙂 Yay, thank you Myke!

We also had a Kimchi – Eating Contest..

Although I love spicy, hot food, I thought, Kimchi is something you enjoy eating while the flavor plays in your mouth (a great excuse!). I just enjoyed a couple of spoonfuls.. 🙂 Most raised their white flags, and it was the #Kumagcow who was the first to raise an empty ramekin! 🙂

It is always fun to attend a Kogi Bulgogi event! Something worth mentioning as another #KogiBulgogiMoment 🙂 If you want to check out the pictures from the event, check out the #KogiFunMeet hashtag in Instagram. Don’t forget to follow @kogibulgogiph!

Thank you Kogi Bulgogi and Myke for having me 🙂

Wannah try the KPOP Chicken? You know where to go! 🙂
