Nothing beats their original fried chicken flavour that's perfectly seasoned and greasy without being too oily! There are also three other delicious flavours of KFC - soy garlic sauce, sweet & spicy, and hot & spicy. Their menu is pretty extensive with hearty Korean dishes like soups, stews, pancakes, bulgogi, tteokbokki and bibimbap.
