Kyochon - Manhattan

The Other KFC = Korean Fried Cardboard
First, I'd like to take a moment to recognize the Icey-land volcano for helping me stay home in Brooklyn for an extra week. Keep erupting, I say!! Now onto the food blog post. Kyochon - I waited so long for you and your Korean fried chicken. It was all in vain. How do I put this delicately? Hmmmm..... My momma taught me that if you got nothing good to say don't say anything. Sorry mom - THIS PLACE SUCKS.

Let me count the ways: overpriced, tasteless, ridiculously over-the-top interior, throbbing house music soundtrack. Pingles is gonna disagree, she was ok with her chicken with rice and veggies below. She didn't have a bite of my sickly chicken sandwich, above, however. It tasted like a wet sidewalk.

Why was a lame sandwich and chicken salad with two drinks twenty-three dollars? Simple - to pay for the interior and the invisible DJ. Check out the glass front, the funky tiled walls and circular staircase.

Chicken bar anyone? Give me a F-ing break already. An over-the-top place can make up for it with food but this place doesn't.

Here's how the upstairs looks. I tried to capture the video screens, elaborate ceiling and even the bloated, annoying soundtrack.

  1. Wow, when you don't like something, you really don't like it! For some reason the picture made me hungry for a crab cake. Well, 'most anything will.

  2. Wow.. talk abt slamming a place. True, it's not impressive although the chicken rice wasn't as bad as your sickly sandwich =P

    Maybe BBQ chicken will be better?
