KFC Eats

Koreans love their fried chicken. So much that the number of fried chicken restaurants in Korea exceeds the number of McDonald’s globally (click here if you don’t believe me). I’ve been to all the top places in Seoul, including the franchised joints, only to find myself going back to a few select places. If you’re into KFC as much as me, you might be asking, where’s Banpo Chicken or Chicken in the Kitchen or other highly-regarded places? Well, I never write bad reviews of a restaurant, so let’s just say they didn’t make the cut for obvious reasons. Nevertheless, this is my personal collection of terrific KFC joints in Seoul that have honed the art of making mind-blowingly crispy fried chicken. 

None of these reviews are paid endorsements by any of the mentioned establishments. Furthermore, this blog is not monetized and functions solely as an open source for Korean food enthusiasts. (7)
