Riding on the current Korean wave in Malaysia; inspired us at KFC to create this very special fried chicken with that Korean twist. We are confident that KFC’s latest Spicy Korean Crunch will be a hit with Malaysians taking into account the ever growing popularity of all things Korean” said Datuk Ahmad Zaki Zahid, MD of QSR Brands (M) Holdings Sdn Bhd.

I’m not a huge K-Pop fan though I admit that I’m addicted to Oppa Gangnam Style and Hyuna’s “Troublemaker”. As for Korean food, oh yes, I do love my Korean BBQ, all forms of bachan, Korean pancakes, kimchi jjiage and bibimbap!

And tonight, I took my first bite of KFC’s Spicy Korean Crunch and I liked it. 🙂

It’s mildly spicy with a slight slow burn but essentially it did taste pretty much like KFC’s Hot and Spicy. And I like KFC Hot and Spicy so perhaps that’s why I liked this Korean version. However, rest assured that you will be able to detect mild differences.

The added sweetish “Korean sauce” on top after the chicken pieces are fried and then sprinkled with baked sesame seeds are the really the factors that made it different. The set above is one of the 2 Spicy Korean Crunch combos. The 2 piece combo and 3 piece combo is priced at RM12.30 and RM15.50 respectively. The combo is inclusive of an all-new potato corn salad, regular wedges and one regular carbonated drink.

So guys, head over to KFC and try out the new KFC Spicy Korean Crunch and tell me what you think! 🙂
Don’t expect it too be entirely different in taste from the usual KFC chicken (after all, why mess with a winning formula/an accepted flavour with the masses?) but it is nice to have something else to order besides Original and Hot & Spicy right?

    oooh, i’m definitely gonna try this! i’m surprised though that it tastes somewhat similar to hot & spicy, since it looks so very different. i’m more of an original recipe fan compared to hot & spicy, but i still like to try kfc’s promotional items whenever possible 😀

      Same here Sean! KFC doesn’t have much promotional items so I’ll definitely make it a point to try them whenever possible too.
      As for the taste I expected more too, but in the end I guess all KFC items would more of less taste similar to its base flavours 😛

    I just had it last 2 days, not really Korean for me & the sauce is sweet instead of spicy ~.~

      No la. it’s not Korean but like I said in my post, it’s just like hot & spicy with a bit of mild burn. The sauce yes is sweet.
