Bonchon Chicken Honey Citrus
For years, it has been spicy or soy garlic for Bonchon but lately, we have tried their new variant called “honey citrus” (drumstick in above pic). Instantly, I feel in love with in and I now have a new preference at Bon Chon. I’d still skip the spicy variant and it made soy garlic (drumstick in background in the same pic) boring. The honey citrus was sweet with a hint of sourness.
Although I still had similar sentiments where the flavor is only skin deep. My workaround for this is to partition the skin with the meat so that every spoonful has a piece of both.
We also tried a few more dishes
This tasted like jap chae in a sweet soup. I found it too sweet to enjoy on its own so I paired it with rice. It does have strips of beef on it but don’t expect a lot.
To those who want to have a break with the usual thigh, leg or wing combo at Bon Chon; you can have a go of their Crunchy Chicken Bulgogi. Two pieces of chicken fillet marinated in a sweet sauce (bulgogi). The first time I tried this, I had to order extra chicken as the normal serving isn’t enough for me.
Lastly, for dessert, we tried their crepes. Sadly, this wasn’t what we expected. Inside the crepe is a flavored cream similar to Bavarian cream. Since we had the strawberry crepe, it tasted like a crunchy strawberry flavored Bavarian.
