4 Fingers Cripsy Chicken: Four Stars for this Crispy Korean Double Fried Chicken

We've tried a number of Korean Fried Chicken since the concept has landed in the Philippines.  But, our quest continues as we try more of it.  Our latest discovery is 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken.  Good thing it's beside our favorite coffee shop, Seattle's Best, at SM Mall of Asia so we noticed it despite the mismatch of colors that made its lighted sign difficult to read.

I've heard a lot of raves about this joint since it was brought here in the Philippines from New York inspired concept from Singapore last January 2012. 

“4 Fingers” signifies the four friends who established the fast-food branch.  At the same time, it also pertains to using "4 Fingers" that you use for eating the chicken.

It was quite funky with this "4 Finger" glass window that let's you peek through the kitchen.  It also had a printed wall with remarks about "4 Fingers"

We wanted to try dining at this unique high table and chair but it was occupied.  It looked way cool that the usual table sets located in the inner part of the restaurant.

Given their limited space which was mostly taken up by the kitchen area, they were able to utilize it well with the narrow dining set up. 

Food

Ala Carte
4 fingers chicken drumstick
Chicken Drumsticks 6 pcs (369 php) (Someone was quick to grab 1 before I snapped the photo!)
I was expecting our chicken to be served at the stainless steel lunchboxes like from the other tables but
perhaps they only use that for meal orders.  We ordered in sets and got the Chicken Drumsticks in 6 pcs. 
According to the box, this 4 Fingers should be kept secret but their chicken is so good to be kept as one!

Its coating is perfectly crunchy.  Their blend of sauce is savory yet not overpowering.  And, the chicken is juicy too!

Sides
kimchi coleslaw
Kim Chi Coleslaw (55 php)
The Kim Chi Coleslaw is just alright.  It had some spice that could tickle the taste buds and break the monotony of just devouring over their chicken.

skinny fries
Skinny Fries Small (45 php)
The Skinny Fries a nice side of crunchiness and red pepper-y and seaweed flavor.

spice teriyaki rice
Rice with Spice & Teriyaki (20 php)
The Rice with Spice & Teriyaki was not as enticing as the menu image.  Quite frankly, we'd appreciate more teriyaki sauce on it.  Plus, it was on the dry side.


Update (July 2014): Noticed that this branch is now closed.  Try their other branch instead.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
4 Fingers Crispy Chicken is one of the best Korean Fried Chicken that we've tried yet.  Pricing is within the benchmark of its kind.  I also love the funky street-style ambiance.  I'm glad they opened in SM Mall of Asia so we were able to try it out.  Although I'm generally not as eager as the rest when it comes to this type of dish, I'd would never hesitate coming back to enjoy 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken!
