Papa Ken Chicken gives you a great tasting chicken at a price that doesn’t break the bank. They have nine flavors to choose from!
Since I’m in Manila office twice a month, I make sure to try various food located around Sampaloc, Manila. I came across their Facebook Page so I ordered them for lunch.
What I ordered:
Living in Korea for two years, I have high standards for K-Chicken. For an honest review, I can say that it can be Korean inspired because of the spiciness but I’m looking for the “yangnyeom” taste. This is 3/5 for me. They are still starting and I believe that they can still improve this flavor.
2. Honey Garlic Chicken
The Honey Garlic Chicken exceeded my expectation. I love the sweetness level. The chicken is well-glazed. I can compare it with Bonchon’s Korean Fried Chicken. It’s 5/5 for me!
3. Spicy Pinoy BBQ
Can you see the tiny chili seeds on the chicken skin? It looks super spicy but it isn’t that spicy. For someone who’s not a fan of eating spicy food, I can tolerate their level of spiciness. If you want to eat more rice, Spicy Pinoy BBQ is the flavor for you. I think this goes well with beer! This is 5/5 for me.
4. Soy Garlic
Soy Garlic may not look really appealing physically but it is flavorful. The flavor does not only stay on the breading but also on the chicken. It goes well with rice meals! It’s 5/5 for me.
5. Butter Garlic Parmesan
Last but not the least is the Butter Garlic Parmesan. In my opinion, this is one of the best flavors they have. It’s not the usual fried chicken we can cook at home. I love that they are flavorful and not oily. It’s 5/5 for me.
Mojos and Dips
Although the mojos and dips are just on the side, I would say that I and my officemates are totally satisfied with them. They taste really good. It’s like the mojos you order at Shakey’s but a thinner version.
If you plan to order extra dips, I totally recommend the PK special! The garlic parmesan and honey mustard also taste good.
