The one about Kim Chikin
If i’ve discovered anything during these past few months, it’s that food blogging is a double edged sword.. on the one hand you now have the most legitimate excuse to indulge in new food experiences (no questions asked) but on the other hand, your calorie intake becomes directly proportional to the hit counter on your page!
So…I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands and allow myself every Saturday to try something new. Of course, this is carefully planned whilst in the
comfort of the gym!
This Saturday’s pick was : Kim Chikin (formerly known as Bon Chon Chicken)
…and as an ortographobic (person who has a fear of spelling mistakes) a restaurant’s elimination of the letter “c” for no particular reason now had to make a compelling case in the kitchen for me to spot it!
Let me tell you a bit about my expectations - I judged a book by its cover!…in fact, not even by its cover.. I judged a book by what I had heard about its cover.
I imagined a dingy kitchen in Bur Dubai slap-bang next to a KFC so what I saw was definitely nothing I expected! Firstly, the entire place was covered in coloured happy notes on post-its by past visitors who were clearly satisfied. The walls were all covered in wood and the place itself was filled with light. The restaurant actually had an extremely clean, modern feel to it - which I liked.
The food was good not great but I especially loved the Bon Chon chicken offered in 3 different flavours: Spicy, Soy or Garlic Lemon - pretty amazing (except i’m not a fan of garlic however my garlic loving foodies loved it!). What makes this chicken different is definitely the batter - extremely crispy, full of flavour and juiiiicccy!
We all agreed it was definitely something we wouldn’t frequent but definitely worth checking out!
Until my next spotting,
