Cheesy: Kko Kko

June 2017 was my last summer vacation. God knows it was one hell of a semester and this summer vacation was the only oasis motivating me as I dragged myself to school every day, complying with every requirement after requirements.

But even though how dreadful this semester was and how much I’m looking for that “detachment from responsibilities,” I still like to make it productive. That’s why I made sure that I’m working on many things even though I’m on vacation. Lucky me, on the first 3 weeks of my summer vacation, I already got myself a thesis adviser and a thesis topic– which was revised and continuously being revised as of December 2017. Plus, I also got appointed to become an Organizing Committee President for my org’s event which was also time-consuming since it was my first time and I was just blindly balancing everything while I’m walking on a thin string of fate.

But of course, being the Leo myself, I would always love myself more than anyone or anything, so even though I have a lot of things to do, I’d still make an effort to make myself happy.

One thing that makes me happy the most: anything Korean-related. (Korean Dramas, Korean Restaurants, Korean Stationeries, Korean Facemasks, Korean Fashion, and Korea itself.)

Kko Kko is one of the restaurants that gained a lot of attention because it is not just a typical Korean restaurant but they actually specialize in Chicken which you’ll have to dip in Cheese Fondue!

I have already read about Kko Kko through Booky and, so I’ve been planning to eat here. But I guess once you don’t plan for something, that’s when it happens more because for some unforeseen circumstances my brother just told me to try this one with him because he knows how much I love Korean-related things, and voila! This happened.

Rabokki (Php368)

I have been craving for Tteokbokki (Spicy Rice Cakes) mixed with Ramyeon, but most of the Tteokbokki I know, usually are either overcooked (so soggy) or undercooked (so hard).  So when I came across this Rabokki (Php368) in the menu which is a Korean Ramen with Tteokbokki, Odeng (Korean fish cake), White Onions, Cabbage, and topped with Mozzarella Cheese, all simmered in a spicy soup, I knew this one will be part of our order.

It was all in a pot, put in a stove, and placed on our table. But I must say that it’s a little annoying because I can feel the steam and the seat I’ve chosen is where the air-conditioning unit directly blows air into. So basically when the steam goes up from the pot, the air-conditioning unit blows it to my face. And that’s a dilemma.

Chicken Cheese Fondue- Half (Php658)

A melted cheese on a bread, French Fries, Onion Rings and boneless chicken with the flavor of your choice, yes, that’s what’s included in the Chicken Cheese Fondue. I have always been aware of how good Cheese is, but when it’s used with my favorite dishes it gets way more delicious!

The chicken that we ordered was just the original, and it tasted like a soy chicken which is a very popular chicken flavor even when I tried it in a Korean restaurant “Chicken Up” in Singapore. Every time you will bite the chicken, it’s very crispy and the flavor is not just on the outside. Also, I am in love with Onions so much, and being able to eat an onion that’s as huge and thick as this, it makes me happier! For the French Fries, don’t worry it’s just the same French fries you can have anywhere. And of course, for the cheese fondue, I guarantee you that you won’t feel umay (the flavor is too rich, you don’t like to eat it anymore because you get goosebumps) since we all know that most Korean delicacies are sweet and then you would have to dip it to cheese more.

So there you have it! If you want to visit a restaurant specializing on cheese fondue with Chicken , go to Kko Kko! You can find it at The Sapphire Bloc, Sapphire Road, Ortigas, Pasig City and other branches. Hope to hear your experience!
