The Global BonChon Chicken Phenomenon -–Drawing Crowds in Baguio

BonChon, the crispy chicken sensation raved about globally, is now serving the original Korean fried chicken secret the world craves for in the Summer Capital of the Philippines. BonChon opens its doors in SM City Baguio, Breezeway Terrace, at the 2nd floor.

BonChon, meaning “original village” in Korean, serves Korean fried chicken that’s super crispy yet light and not greasy, with hot moist juicy meat, and sauced with its addicting soy garlic or spicy glaze.  From its original home in Seoul, BonChon opened branches in New York where its crispy chicken secret earned major media and industry accolades, as well as raves from discriminate diners.  Its similar success in other US cities such as San Francisco, Boston, Virginia, and New Jerseyset the stage for the restaurant chain’s international expansion in Bangkok, Manila, Jakarta, Singapore – and later on in key Philippines cities such as Cebu, Davao,  Cavite, and now in Baguio.  Now with more than 45  stores in the Philippines at 2 years of operations, the company is well on its way of realizing its vision of having BonChon in every key city in the country.

The company is steadfastly committed to serve fresh, innovative food at reasonable prices, delivering much value to its growing cult of customers without any shortcuts.

The local menu offers a wide range, starring BonChon’s world-renowned crispy chicken.

The crispy chicken secret that inspired a global cult following: BonChon Chicken is super crispy yet light and not greasy, with hot moist juicy meat, sauced with the highly addicting soy garlic or spicy glaze.  It’s the original Korean fried chicken secret.

Its seafood offerings began as local seasonal offerings that have become popular items on the local menu: the brand’s take on the English classic of fish and chips, crispy squid rice, and the raved-about fish taco which was inspired by the California food truck mishmash of Korean and Mexican.

At BonChon, the traditional Korean bulgogi is served Asian style as beef bulgogi over rice, Western style as beef bulgogiin a wrap, and BonChon style as crunchy chicken bulgogiover rice.
