I've seen several posts and tweets raving about Bonchon Chicken months ago. So when my sister asked me to try BonChon Chicken with her, I eagerly agreed.
When I got there, I was surprised to find that it's a fast food restaurant. I don't know why but I pictured that it would be a sit-down restaurant (meaning a waiter will approach you to take your order and you'd pay for your meal after eating). Anyway, here's a snapshot of their BonChon Chicken sets. Don't worry, they also offer individual value meals.
My sister and I ordered 2 pieces of legs each. Here's what an individual meal plate typically looks like:

When I tasted the chicken, OMG I understood why people kept raving about the chicken. The chicken are twice fried, making it extra crispy. I loved that the chicken skin tasted of soy garlic. It tasted salty, garlic-y, and slightly sweet all at the same time. We were both so pleased with how good it tasted that we didn't mind the queue to order (again) some chicken to go. We ordered some to bring as pasalubong for our parents and sister. (Haha, I felt the need to explain.)
Aside from the resto set-up, another not-so-good thing I can say about dining in at BonChon Chicken Megamall is that you'll end up smelling like fried food. So I suggest that if you'd rather not smell like fried chicken while you shop, put Bonchon at the last of your to-do list or order it for take-out. If you wish, you can also call ahead so your order will be ready for pick-up. Now if you still don't want to do that, you can have it delivered to you.
BonChon Chicken is available in 4 areas. (1)SM Megamall A UGF (2)Ayala Triangle Gardens (3)Greenbelt 1 level 1 (4)Acropolis Libis. You can check out the menu below if you wish to try them too:
