(SPOT.ph) Fried chicken fans are in for a treat, with Cebu-based Korean restaurant brand Oppa! Chicken finally opening in Manila on November 28.

Original Fried Chicken

 

The menu is every chicken lover's dream, with a range of flavors and seasonings to choose from. In the Original Fried Chicken (P280/half, P550/whole), for example, you can taste the salt and pepper that not only lingers on the handsomely fried golden-brown skin, but goes right down to the bone, granting you a pleasant experience with every bite.

 

Oven Roasted Chicken

 

 

Crispy Baked Chicken

 

For darker, meatier flavors, the Oven Roasted Chicken (P480/whole) is packed with so much flavor, especially within its meat. Incredibly tender, the chicken has a smokiness that highlights the careful thought that they put into roasting it. If you're feeling a bit health-conscious, the Crispy Baked Chicken (P480/whole) won't disappoint, since this tasty version of the poultry provides as much satisfaction for your taste buds as its roasted counterpart.

 

Padak

 

If you're after a more Asian-inspired dish, the Padak (P360), or Chicken with Green Onion, is a refreshing alternative to the classic chicken fingers. The crisp breading is fried perfectly, and the dipping sauce served on the side definitely hits the sweet spot.

 

Snowing Cheese Chicken

 

 

Bulsazo Chicken

 

More adventurous diners won't be disappointed with the Snowing Cheese Chicken (P280/half, P550/whole), which is generously dusted with a coat of dry cheese powder reminiscent of those childhood cheesy snacks. That flawless balance of sweet and salty will surely leave you wanting more. The Bulsazo Chicken (P360) is so awesomely spicy that you’d wish you brought a carton of milk to soothe the heat you get in every bite. They're delicately gingery, finished off with a sprinkling of sesame seeds. You can reach for the fries or rice cake strips served on the side when the flavor gets too intense, so don't say we didn't warn you.

 

GanJang Chicken

 

 

YangNyum Chicken

 

The GanJang Chicken (P280/half, P550/whole) and YangNyum Chicken (P280/half, P550/whole), the most popular Korean flavors on the menu, are generously glazed with Soy Garlic sauce and Sweet and Spicy sauces respectively. In true Oppa! fashion, that standout flavor finds its way into the center of every piece. The GanJang Chicken is covered in sticky sauce that works so well with the tastiness of the meat, while the YangNyum Chicken glaze has hints of ginger and sesame, as well as a bit of heat that lingers playfully on your palate.

Golbange

 

If you want to try something other than chicken, the Golbange (P380) is a pasta dish topped with a kimchi-like salad. Have it with some chicken or by itself, your tummy will thank you for it.
