The leader in Korean fried chicken is introducing a new wave of crunch.

Bonchon, the popular global restaurant concept known for its double-fried, hand-brushed Korean fried chicken, is adding the Crunchy Chicken Bowl to all locations starting Monday, August 15. The bowl has steamed white rice topped with boneless chicken, crunchy romaine, fresh sauteed vegetables and finished off with sesame seeds. Guests can choose between Bonchon’s signature Soy Garlic or Spicy crunchy boneless chicken as well as a side of soy sauce or bibimbap sauce. Originally available at select locations, due to high demand, the Crunchy Chicken Bowl is becoming a staple nationwide for $10.95. 

“Our team has developed a way to offer a delicious mix of vegetables, rice and our famous extra crunchy chicken at a reasonable price without cutting corners on the quality. We began offering this earlier this year at select locations and were excited by how much our guests enjoyed it.  We’re eager to now be able to share this dish with all of our guests across the country,” says Flynn Dekker, CEO at Bonchon. “Whether it’s our crave-worthy hand-brushed wings, drumsticks, crispy chicken strips or the Crunchy Chicken Bowl, there is something for every chicken lover to enjoy at our restaurants.” 

Bonchon, which translates as “my hometown,” is known for its Korean fried chicken that is hand-battered, and double-fried to achieve its signature, crave-worthy crunch. Every piece of chicken is carefully brushed with sauce to make each bite perfectly flavorful. Born in Busan, South Korea in 2002, Bonchon’s founder Jinduk Seo dreamed of sharing his favorite flavors with the world. In 2006, U.S. fans were able to begin “Crunching Out Loud” with the global sensation and it has continued to expand to over 115 locations throughout the country.
