4. Kko Kko – UP Town Center
Last month’s #1
Kko Kko is a modern Korean chicken house that uses traditional and contemporary recipes

It’s for foodies looking for new and unique Korean dishes. It’s not for people looking for grilled Korean BBQ. We recommend the Chicken Cheese Fondue, Snow Chicken Cheese, and Galbi Jim Dosirak. Our insider tip is the place is quite small and may get full quickly on peak hours, so make sure to book a table ahead of time. Fun Fact: Kko Kko was named after the sound that a chicken makes.
