Dining Review: Kko Kko

Kko Kko Festival Mall Chicken Cheese Fondue

Cheese is love, cheese is life! We had the opportunity to try more food involving cheese so of course we went for it.

The place itself was nice. We went there during lunch time, so the whole restaurant was brightly lit by sunlight, making it more vibrant. There were two TVs showing Kpop music videos and Kpop songs were being played by their radio, but all three were different from each other and there’s such a disconnect between all of them that you might feel disconcerted if you focus on it too much. My advice: don’t.

There’s also a big board on their wall where you can stick your pictures (which they take for you using a Polaroid camera) and write messages. It’s cute and fun.

As for the food itself, it was fantastic! We were all full by the end of the meal. We ordered the Chicken Cheese Fondue, Japchae, Soseji Dosirak, and Kko Ma.

Chicken Cheese Fondue (half ₱658, whole ₱998). The Chicken Cheese Fondue was a lot of fun to eat. It had onion rings, French fries (which were spicy), and of course, fried chicken in yang nyum sauce. The cheese was in the middle of the platter and was in a bread bowl (which was also good).

I think the best part is the fact that none of the fried items got soggy even after being exposed for a while. All of them were still crispy even if we had to pause eating the cheese fondue and try the other food.

I still prefer Yoree’s Cheesy Dak Kanjeong, but nonetheless Kko Kko’s Chicken Cheese Fondue was still great.

Japchae (₱128).The Japchae was heaven-sent! It was just so good. We had a bit of a mishap where we had to send the first one served to us back because it was too salty and we hoped it could be repaired. We got sent back an entirely new plate, and it was amazing! The flavours of each topping balanced nicely with the noodles.

Soseji Dosirak (₱168) The Soseji Dosirak, a sausage packed lunch was also really good. It was spicy but not overpowering, and was also very filling. It was served on a tin lunchbox and was very cute presentation wise.

Kko Ma (₱138) Another winner was the Kko Ma. I feel like I could just eat them the whole day. I like my rice rolls just fine, and this one is no exception. The rice-to-filling ratio was spot on.

A shame we didn’t get to try their desserts because their bingsu machine wasn’t working yet.

And of course, I can’t not talk about the service. I mentioned the fact that we had to send back the japchae. The servers were very kind to us about it, our server, Roxy, in particular. They were also very helpful in answering our queries about our orders. They’re also very nice when taking pictures of the customers.

For the price, I think it’s okay. You get what you paid for and it’s not a disappointment. 
All in all, it was a good dining experience.
