Smoper Chicken: Light and Golden Korean Fried Chicken (One McKinley Place BGC)

We've recently discovered Smoper Chicken at Bonifacio Global CitySmoper Chicken is a chicken delivery chain established in 1989 and now has 800 branches in South Korea alone.  With so many branches, it makes one curious at how good this chicken is.

The store is a bit tricky to spot for the first time especially if you're driving a car since its sign is behind a post and its located between 7-11 and Seattle's Best Coffee.  Finding a parking slot is another challenge.

Although Smoper Chicken looks humble on the outside, its actually bright, spacious and cozy.

The offerings at Smoper Chicken is so affordable so I bet the employees nearby feast here all the time.

smoper chicken wings
Wings Regular (175 php/3 Pieces)
Unlike other Korean fried chicken chains, their chicken is light and golden in color.  You can also opt them to be served glazed with sauce or separate sauce.  We chose the latter so we can tinker with the taste according to our preference.

Thighs Large (290 php/5 Pieces)
The chicken are as golden as their store sign.  I've never seen fried chicken as look so golden and clean like this before.  There were no burnt marks and it looked evenly cooked.

smoper chicken drumsticks
Drumsticks Large (290 php/5 pieces)
The skin is so crunchy yet surprisingly easy to bite!  Even my little sister who doesn't eat chicken skin couldn't resist them.

The chicken meat is oh so juicy that each bite was a pleasure!  And, did I mention that they chicken are so meaty and big? 

smoper dips
Original, Spicy and Soy-Garlic (My apologies forgot the Curry)
We had four sauces: Original, Spicy, Curry and Soy-Garlic.  I liked the Spicy and the Curry the most.

Combo Meals
smoper fish
3 Pcs. Fish (165 php)
We also tried the Fish which had the same batter as the Chicken.  It was also as juicy but more tender since its Fish.  This is best eaten with the Curry sauce.

Ala Carte
surf and turf fish and chunk
Surf and Turf Fish & Bulgogi (195 php)
The Fish here is bite size and the Bulgogi was tender with a slight hint of sweetness.  This meal is delicious to pair with rice.

samgak kimbap
Samgak Kimbap (Tuna Rice Triangle) (85 php)
It's my first time to try a Samgak Kimbap which is a tuna rice triangle and I loved it.  In fact, we wanted to order more of this and the chicken one but they ran out of stock.  This is tasty, crunchy with tuna bits and nori.

Rice (15 php)
Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Smoper Chicken is unlike other Korean fried chicken because their chicken are crunchier.  The meat is the juiciest I've had too.  I also like the separate sauce concept.  This is now my favorite Korean fried Chicken hands down!  I'll definitely come back for the chicken and to try the Patbingsoo which was unfortunately unavailable during our visit. =(
