So we tried cheese fondue, half is around 658 pesos,japchae 128 pesos , mango cheesecake bingsu 198 pesos ,apple juice for 58 pesos
Cheese fondure half- sabi ni ate is for 2-3 persons. I think it is for 3-4 persons. Fingerfood kasi siya and medyo nakakaumay. I don’t know why siguro dahil sa cheese and i forgot to ask what cheese they use. But sabi ko nga i will not go there na to eat cheese fondue. But just the bingsu and japchae. Medyo pricey lang si bingsu but really worth it naman. We booked a reservation thru booky and we go there 6pm so wala pa masyado tao.
If you will order cheeses fondue here maybe yung tambay mode kayo with beer. Ganun! Pero for date purposes. Wag! Yung sa kabilang table namin di din naubos pinatake out na lang din. Dahil may lakad pa kami after that pinilit na lang namin ubusin. Kasi its 658 pesos! Lol
The service is very nice. Mabilis naman lahat.
Sabi nga nila we tried “just for experience” ba ang hype 128514

If the movie COCO pulled heartstrings with “Remember Me”, this KKO KKO pulled a bad frown with “Forget you” :( I honestly don’t know where the hype is coming from. Is it the picture-perfect “cheese fondue” experience? Probably. But I went here with an intense craving for cheese and chicken because of awesome reviews everywhere and drool-worthy photos, that ended up with disdain.

Let’s dissect the platter :
▫️CHICKEN CHUNKS 2/10
Sauce Choices : Sweet Chili, Classic Soy, or Oh-my-Garlic. We had the latter. 2/10 because it was still soft yet crispy though saucy. BUT, EEEEK!!! it was excessively sweet that it could nearly pass for a glucose-test drink! It tasted like caramelized brown sugar with soy sauce and too much garlic powder -_____- Hey I looove garlic, that my Black King config for garlic is extra heavy. But sadly, this one’s a bad case of “too much garlic” and something else. Huhu I’d rather have Yellow Cab’s Lil’ chicks or hot wings!

▫️ONION RINGS. -1/10
Tasteless, Batter-y and the hard type of crispy. Period.
Oh wait there’s more : sakit sa gums.

▫️SPICY FRIES. 6/10
Ok, this was really spicy. And I like spicy. Like level 6 ramen nagi spicy. So this was just ok. Subtle sweetness, and literally “spiced”. The saving grace of our meal, somehow. I like yellow cab’s sriracha fries better though.

▫️CHEESE FONDUE. 0/10.
I tasted the fondue before anything else because CHEESE. But seriously! It isn’t cheese for me! Not even yeast-y or grassy! Not consistently gooey, not even salty, not even a hint of real melted cheese 128534 Cheese powder? Cheese flavor? So-so cheese melted with milk in it? I don’t know. But P658 for this half-platter good for two? No thank you. I’d rather go to Frankie’s and chicken my heart out and order cheese sauce on the side! Or have a dozen of Spicy Buffalo / Salted Egg wings and have it delivered intead, and melt my own cheese mix while waiting! Huhuhu nasad talaga ako dito.

SERVICE : el terrible!!!
What made our stay worse, is the kind of staff they have! On a weekday! 128530

▫️“May reservation po ma’am? Blahblahblah Ah di po pwede yung ganun samin na nandito na kayo chaka lang magboboook” *in a condescending tone. Kkkkkk this is NOT even tim ho wan or samgyupsalamat na pipilahan.

▫️Several follow ups for the overpriced iced tea, and the bill. 3-5 of them were stationed at the counter that’s almost right in front of us (the place was pretty cramped). Yet the calm waving, “miss?”, “sir?”, was IGNORED / looked past several times that I literally had to lower my voice and say “excuse me sir” out loud. 🤯

▫️They forgot to punch the BIBIMBAP, and KIMBAP we ordered, that we ended up taking it home. How could we cancel? “Wait lang po, wait lang po” happened and poof, a take out bag appeared! While both had generous ingredients and tasted okay (especially the kimchi rice), the awful dine-in experience overrides any good thing I dare think of. 128530

**** first time to really rant about a foodventure that went terrible.

EXPERIENCE IS EVERYTHING to me.
This place is sadly overhyped, over-glammed, and superficial (to me)

Once I crack, I never go back -
B

NOTE : dipping the chicken here just looked sooo good. Almost drool worthy! But remember Tom? In 500 days of Summer? Don’t be like Tom! You’ll be P650++ poorer with an unsatisfied and unsatiated tummy. But hey, you might be one of the lucky ones who found Autumn here!

Tried out Kko Kko's branch at Sapphire bloc. I've been craving for their Rabokki ever since trying it out in their Kapitolyo branch 2-3 months ago.

We ordered the usual Cheese Fondue (half size priced at Php 658)
The combination of chicken, fries, and onion rings, all gathered around the cheese bowl makes for a really appetizing meal.

To satisfy my cravings, of course we ordered their Rabokki (Php 388). it's good to share for 4-5 pax. I'm not a fan of spicy food but this one, I can make an exception. The soup is cooked in front of you that makes the experience more authentic and mouthwatering.

Lastly, we couldn't miss out on their Kimbap with beef bulgogi (Php 158). It's very flavorful and something I'd go back for.

Overall, my cravings was satisfied and I'll definitely come back again. Their food isn't something unique, more like the comfort food that one will look for, and I guess that's what makes customers come back to.

A visit to Kko Kko wouldn’t be complete without an order of Chicken Cheese Fondue. Though my past visits were composed of mixed reviews and experiences with this dish, it’s still their signature so it’s a “must” to get it. The cheese fondue for this visit is not that overwhelming probably because it was shared with a lot of people.

The news one that I’ve tried for this visit…
127831 Boneless Cheesy Melt
It is boneless chicken thigh in your sauce of choice topped with melted mozzarella cheese. Since we got Classic Soy and Oh-My-Garlic for the sauce of the chicken on the Chicken Cheese Fondue, we went with Sweet Chili for Boneless Cheesy Melt. It was surprisingly sweeter than spicier but still good. As a personal preference, the garlic and soy sauces are good together but not good if partnered with a sweet chili flavored chicken. The mozzarella cheese on top is way better than the one on the cheese fondue.
127858 Kimchi Jjigae
According to Kko Kko’s menu, Jjigae is Spicy Korean soup. Our group raved about Kimchi Jjigae so I was a bit excited to try it too. Unfortunately, I find it a little spicy for my liking. I can tolerate a just a few sips of it. Not really a fan of spicy food, I have a low tolerance for spiciness.

Another Korean restaurant opens its doors in Ortigas. It is designed primarily to cater to a vast Korean community in the area. Their dishes are also made to appeal the office and residential Filipino crowd with a modern take on Korean cuisine.

Their main offering is their take on fried chicken which comes on its original form (marinated in Korean spices with a choice of regular or spicy) and 3 others. Yang Nyum

variety has a sauce of your choice sweet chili, classic soy or oh-my-garlic

. Snow is tossed in special powder with a choice of cheese or fire chili. The Padak is boneless chicken chunks tossed in Yang Nyum sauce of your choosing and topped with shredded leeks. I had the original, it was seasoned well but I was expecting more twist on it.

The Japchae, a Korean noodle was disappointing. The noodles were too sticky they were almost glued together. The taste was flat on top of the struggle to eat it.

My friend and I also had one type of Dosirak (Set meal on a lunch box with Sweet Dilis, Stewed Kimchi and a Sunny Side Up Egg). The Galbi Jim is their take on beef stew. It was spiced well and delicious. The meat was really soft and tender. My big complain is the very small portion. I barely got to touch the rice. Not a good deal for Php 228.

The Cranberry Iced Tea at Php 128 is a bit pricey although potentially a favorite. Kko Kko is located at Sapphire Bloc, a growing hub of restaurants. Their spot is right along two way Garnet road.

The large cheese bowl was good for our group of 6! (Well actually I think you can stretch it to a group of 8) The cheese bowl does not give out an "umay" feeling. The snow chicken was also good. It helped take away the extreme spicy taste from all the other spicy food we ordered. The fire chicken truly deserved its name!! Spiciest chicken I have ever tried. The Korean ramen serving might be good for a group of four already. We ended up not being able to finish it as we ordered 2. The spicy level of this cannot be adjusted and it is a bit too spicy for me but I think others would like it.

As for their dessert, the brownie bingsu was too sweet for us. Maybe we should have ordered the mango one, but the brownie was just too sweet.

Expectation vs reality. It was very different from the menu than it was served to us. We went there maybe a few hours before their closing that is why some are not available anymore. Anyway, it's ok because we get to taste the cheese fondue and the snowy chicken which is good. Will definitely go back.

I finally got to try the chicken and cheese fondue of Kko Kko!

The cheese fondue half platter is enough to share between 5 people if you're looking to simply try it. It had soy glazed chicken, onion rings and fries (with chili powder flavoring). The soy glazed chicken was a winner for me - even on its own. The glaze was delicious and the chicken was crunchy and flavorful. The cheese, however, was a bit disappointing. I'm not sure what kind of cheese they used but it was more creamy than cheesy.

My friends recommended that we get the Snow Chicken which had a coating of cheese powder (that's why it's named as such). However, there was a choice - either the original cheese powder or the fire chili powder. We opted for the fire chili powder since we already had cheese in the fondue. It was still good. The chicken was big and the breading was crunchy. However, going with the fire chili powder might have been a bad idea for a group with low tolerance for spiciness. It was good, but it was crazy spicy! I was perspiring from the spice!

My craving for kimchi jjiae showed up so I ended up ordering one. It was pretty good! Packed with tons of kimchi and big chunks of pork. Good thing it wasn't very spicy so it helped with toning down the spiciness of the fire chili chicken. It saddened me that their jjigae didn't come with rice.

Since we're on the topic of rice, the rice served to us at the time was super wet. Someone might have messed up the ratio of water to the grain.

Food is okay, the snow chicken had a similar taste with MCDO Cheesy Cheddar powder and for the boneless cheese melt chicken it had a familiar taste of ginger/garlic soy sauce. I'm not quite sure where I tasted it before, maybe Bonchon?

Concept of the place is pretty chill and home-y. Quite small. I figured it's somewhat an "inuman" chill place.

We didn't try their chicken fondue which clearly states on their menu that it's their best seller. It seems too much for us to order, since we're just two. But the other tables beside us ordered it. It's pretty packed with different kinds of appetizer sides and lots and lots of cheese.

Moreover, the staff is .5 less than ok. Our experience had a little hiccup because of our server, she repeated our order thrice but at the end she only ordered one of what we ordered. Hence, the melted cheese chicken being in a take out bag in the photo. (We had to wait for another 15 minutes just because our server didn't punched in our order)

For the waiting time, 2/5. Felt like we waited for 25mins to 30 mins for our order to arrive (cheese melt chicken not included)

All in all experience: was not disappointed with KKO KKO's food. Price is okay.

Enjoyed my visit. Food was good aside from the cheese. Kimbap for 98 is great. The chiggae was also good for 198. Fairly priced. Friendly staff.

Loved my first ever Kko Kko experience, when my officemates and I had lunch here. At first, I was hesitant to order their chicken cheese fondue as I had the impression we'd have "suya" factor, that it won't be enough for the three of us, and that it's not worth it, given the price. But boy was I wrong. In the end, I was persuaded to order this (along with one other appetizer and a rice meal), and it was worth it!

It was like eating cheesy pizza, only this instance, we got to dip pieces of Korean chicken, fries, and onion rings in a bread bowl full of creamy, melted cheese. Heaven.

We also ordered Dakdori Tang (chicken stew with rice, egg and dilis) and Seaweed Roll which were also quite good and savory. Every meal we ordered complemented each other, so quite understandable that we were crazy full, after our meal #whatdiet?

Customer service was quick and no frills. Everything we needed came at the right time; no extra effort of asking how our food was, which was what we needed at that time, as we were to busy chatting and eating our dreams of summer bods away.

Price standpoint, we ended up ordering (and paying) a tad too much, but it was all good. All in all, a worthwhile experience worthy of future visits!128522

Kko Kko is a modern restaurant which specializes Korean chicken. The Korean Chicken House was brought to you by Ms. Grace Lee the woman behind the success of Buta Wagyu and Nikuya Charcoal Grill.

One afternoon, Midz and I dropped by to try the intriguing Chicken Cheese Fondue. The place looks nice and Earth-friendly even though that it can be fully loaded during peak hours because it can only accommodate certain capacity.

We order half of it for Php588.00, it comes with Melted Cheese in Bread Bowl, onion Rings, Flavored Fries, and Boneless Chicken Chunks with the 2 Flavors (we choose Chili and Garlic).

Chicken Cheese Fondue - 11088110881108811088 4/5
"I am looking for more cheesier taste, I think the melted cheese lacks of flavor. It taste bland, although the chili chicken and garlic chicken were so flavorful (I like the garlic chicken much better. Five star for me). The fries coated in a cheesy powder was quite okay it's better than the melted cheese. The onion rings was crispy outside and has a sweet taste inside."

Overall, it would be better if the melted cheese will me more cheesier. And for the service, the staff assisted and accommodated us well.

I have super no idea what Kko Kko offers. I only heard it from my Ortigas friends and they kept blabbering about Kko Kko's Kimchi Jigae and Cheese Fondue.

Because of this, I asked my friends to do the ordering. They got one Whole Chicken Cheese Fondue and Half Padak. One of my friends ordered Chapchae. The chicken cheese fondue was composed of a bread bowl where the melted cheese was, spicy French fries, onion rings and chicken chunks. The cheese was a bit overwhelming given its amount and the consistency was like a more flowy Cheez Whiz. I think it lacks a bit of flavor but it was a good partner for the chicken, fries and onion rings because it didn't overpower the taste of each. It still added texture and mouthfeel. The onion rings and fries were typical. The chicken chunks were really good! The inside was soft and the outside had the right crunch. I remembered that they ordered Classic Soy and Oh-My-Garlic for the flavors of the chicken but it was hard to distinguish which is which. As for the chapchae, nothing special also.

I think they highly encourage you to use chopsticks because when we asked for spoon and fork, they gave us plastic ones.
If you'll be dining also on a weekday lunch (just like us), go here early because the place gets really crowded.

my niece invited us for dinner yesterday and since we haven't eaten at this place yet, we agreed to go.

my nieces arrived there around 6. they were seated at the outside as the table for 8 inside was reserved for 630pm. the waiter said they only give a 15 minute allowance for reservations. come 645 we asked if we can sit inside but the waiter said they can't give the table for 8 inside because the owner's family was the one who reserved it. why say they have a 15 minute allowance if you can't give it?

the first food that came was the chicken cheese fondue 128077128077128077. this was a combination of very spicy (SALTY, and definitely not spicy) french fries 128078, marinated chicken 128077128077, onion rings 128077128077128077, and chicken popcorn (wasn't able to try). at the center of it all was a bread bowl full of melted cheese.

we have to ask for plates before they thought of giving us plates, this is also true with spoon and forks. my mom ask for napkins and they only gave us 4 pieces. so for each napkin two people have to share. talk about cost cutting 128514128514128514.

the second food that arrived was the original regular 2-piece fried chicken 128077128077128077 with rice. this was really only regular no frills fried chicken.

the third food that arrived was the snow chicken 128077128077128077 these powdered chicken are drenched in flavor powder. we had a combination of fire chili powder and cheese powder. the fire chili wasn't really spicy, and the cheese was salty.

in the middle of our meal, their service became better. maybe because they saw me reading looloo reviews 128514

beef bulgogi dosirak 128077128077128077128077 i asked the waiter to mix it for me and he happily obliged. when i was eating this, i remembered my bibimbap on my way to the us riding korean air. btw, didn't taste the sweet dilis nor the beef. i recommend this food for those who are sick. it's like hospital food, no taste. but i still like it.

cheese fries 128077128077128077 fries covered with cheese powder. at first they were serving spicy fries and we said we didn't order any. the waitress was insisting we did until she asked the waiter who took our order. the waiter said we ordered cheese fries. wtf, how can they get it wrong if it's written (or supposed to be written)?

Last Saturday, I just proved that nothing can stop me and EJ B from crossing off restaurants from our list, especially once we set foot on the area.

After getting invited to an event at Sapphire Bloc, we immediately went to Kko Kko just to try their chicken cheese fondue, which has been circulating around social media, even if we were stuffed.

We arrived the Korean restaurant and were a bit surprised of its design. There's nothing in it that will give you a hint that this is a Korean restaurant! The place is instagram-worthy, and comes across as a cafe with plant-filled shelves on the wall, and round, orange lightings.

|Chicken Cheese Fondue
P588 (Half) Good for 2-3 people
P988 (Whole) good for 5-6 people

This set is composed of cheese fondue in a bread bowl, with homemade onion rings, fries, and two flavors of their boneless chicken (Yang Nyum).

▪️Yang Nyum flavors: Sweet Chili, Oh-My-Garlic, Classic Soy, Chilli Sili

▫️Cheese Fondue (available in original, mustard garlic, or chili cheese) - This was a bit of a let down. It wasn't the creamy, sharp cheese that I was expecting. It seemed like it has more cream than cheese.

▪️Cheese Fries - I liked this one. It's not the usual, salty, cheese flavored fries we're used to. It tasted as if it also has some sour cream in the cheese mix. It's good. It's not just cheese.

▫️Onion rings - I found this one typical, although I liked it because the onions weren't cut too thick or too thin.

▪️Sweet Chili Yang Nyum - The taste of their sweet chili was okay. Well, I actually didn't taste the chili. It's nothing too special, to be honest.

▫️Oh-My-Garlic - Oh My! I liked this one a lot. The even blend of salty and sweet, plus garlic in the chicken was delicious.

Service was great. The server was able to provide more than the assistance we needed. He was very helpful in making us understand what we are about to order.

Overall, it's safe to say that everything in this fondue set tasted well. It's just sad that the fondue, which is supposed to be the highlight of all of this, was the one that didn't meet my expectations.

3.5 stars! 110881108811088
I came back for the cheese fondue because it's really cool and delightful!
This time, at 6pm on a weekday, the service was great, a lot of staff are available, attentive, and waiting for requests, the cheese fondue was served within the time frame, and the fondue was great! 128045128077🏼

Additional orders such as Chicken with Rice Snow upgraded to Kimchi Rice was way too overpriced. ☹️As well as their drinks, Raspberry Iced Tea and Green Tea Lychee Iced Tea. These are just plain food and drinks, nothing special and not worth the penny. The chicken was so hard, seems like this was already cooked a lot of times; the kimchi rice was nothing, better to eat with plain rice. Their drinks tasted like powdered drinks only. 128078🏼

When we got the bill, only then that I realized that their food are OVERPRICED; mainly because most of the food are unsatisfactory. Even if I enjoyed the fondue, I still think that it is overpriced.

Cheese Fondue half P588 (for me, it's good for 3pax since you will eat other food too)
Chicken with Rice Snow P128; upgrade to Kimchi Rice is P58 128576
Iced Tea P138

Thanks to Booky for the P300 discount!

Glad there are more restaurants opening up at Sapphire Bloc.

Tried their Samgyupsal and their Original Fried Chicken. Both were tasty and can be added to our office lunch options.

Limited tables inside and service is quite slow. Hope they improve.

I haven't eaten Korean food since my trip to Seoul two years ago. After that trip I felt that I already had enough of it so I was not eager trying Kko Kko.

After lunching there today, I can say that I am happy that I decided to try Korean again. We had an overload of Kimchi, the Bibimbop was excellent especially with the tutong rice and the spicy sauce. i also love the yang nyum chicken. It reminded me of Bonchon but much better. The servings are big, the skin crunchy and the sauce so yummy.

The staff were also helpful and prices reasonable.

I will be back soon.
