    Oh yes, Kyochon - the absolute best Korean fried chicken currently in Malaysia. So far, there has not been another restaurant or franchise that is as good as KyoChon. Fresh spring chicken are brought in daily to ensure maximum flavour. The batter is made to be crispy and chewy - a lovely combination that one can hardly expect from fried chicken. The sauce that use, the honey, oh God that is absolutely delicious. It's sweet, savoury and addictive. For those looking for a challenge, go for the spicy and we guarantee that you will cry tears - both of pain and joy. 

    Tips

    Set meals available for 2pax or more.

    Ko-hyang Korean Restaurant @ 1 UtamaPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    A simple and casual diner, usually a kiosk but in 1 Utama, it is a whole shop. Which is nice as it does prove a bit more space to it compared to their kiosk counterpart. The menu is the same, with dishes ranging from Korean classic such as Ramyun to Bibimbap and Kimchi Jjigae to Toppoki. There is also a variety of snacks on the side, which is a nice compliment to the dish. Do not expect too much though, as it is a very basic Korean restaurant. Having said that, you can always expect to get free refills on your banchan. 

    Tips

    Cash only.

    Things to expect

    A casual dining spot with a pretty solid menu.

    Best with

    Green tea.
