If there’s another thing that Korea won from Filipinos’ hearts aside from their drama series is, what else, the food. At a time when Korean buffets are all over the metro, there’s one that specializes in modern-day Korean cuisine.
The KKo Kko Korean chicken house is a mix of traditional and contemporary recipes, owned by TV personality Grace Lee. What makes it special is that the ingredients used are from Korea. Here’s what we have tried so far:
If you’re a cheese lover, then this is for you! It’s melted mozzarella cheese in a bread bowl and served with a big platter of French fries, onion rings, and boneless chickens with a flavor of your choice: sweet chili, classic soy or garlic. The cheese is addicting. You can also eat the bread later after you’ve finished.
It’s Korean crispy fried chicken tossed in special cheese powder. You may also opt for a fire chili powder if you want something spicy. What’s interesting is that it doesn’t taste artificial despite the powder. Snow Chicken in bite-sized chunks was so good that my friends had to order rice along with it.
This is a Korean ramen with tteok (rice cake), odeng (fish cake), white onions, cabbage and topped with mozzarella cheese simmered in a spicy soup that’s cooked right in front of you. This will definitely warm you up in this cool weather.
The menu in Kko Kko is divided into three categories— Korean Fried Chicken, Korean Street Food and Dosirak (Korean Lunchbox).
Kko Kko is a modern-looking fast-food place with a laid-back vibe that is suitable for your barkada and your family. I would surely go back again.
KKo Kko is located at Saphine Bloc, Ortigas; Kapitolyo, Pasig; Market Market, Taguig, and UP Town Center, Quezon City.
