Smoper Korean Chicken is a new fast food in BGC, I want to call it the chicken fast food because they serve spicy and flavored chicken and also Korean food. I heard that this fast food is big blockbuster in BGC because of their affordable price and awesome promos – imagine… eat all you can chicken and they offer also beer! Office people are one of the avid customers here in Smoper BGC branch, and it’s the 1st branch here in the country and also 1st branch outside South Korea. They are now opening a 2nd branch in Katipunan Ave. infront of Ateneo.
Smoper is a popular fast food store in South Korea, they operate 800 branches all over the Korea and now they are here in the Philippines, because we don’t have here a Korean fast food and offer a different take of spicy flavored chicken.
Main offerings are fried chickens… wings, thigh and breast part, the food style here is a much different and unlike those chicken stores we have here in Manila. The cooking is the same, using our local chickens and adding flavors and spice that came from their mother branch in South Korea.
We attended a food tasting and there they launched a new food set – all Korean food… to their menu.
It’s the same menu like in Korea…all chickens…but they added Korean food.
let me paste a snip of some info about Smoper --- snips begin -
According to owner Jieun Bae, who moved from Korea to Manila more than five years ago, the sauces are “all from Korea.” Jieun, a Korean national married to a Filipino, adds, “That’s why Smoper Chicken is very unique because you have more choices.”
Having more choices doesn’t mean Smoper Chicken isn’t friendly to the budget-conscious. You’d be surprised to discover that all offerings at Smoper Chicken are reasonably priced.
For instance, the one-piece chicken (drumstick, thigh, or breast part) meal that comes with a cup of rice and a drink is priced at P95, while the two-piece chicken meal is at P140.
Fans of Korean food can find their favorite Korean dishes here as well. Smoper Chicken also serves the best-selling japchae (P150), or sweet potato noodles mixed with vegetables, sesame seeds, and slices of chili; and bulgogi (P150), which is marinated beef or chicken.
For a lighter fare, you can try the Popcorn Chicken, Chicken Skin, or Chicken Sandwich. For bigger groups that like sharing, Smoper Chicken has these options: Regular, Large, Family-sized servings.Visit Smoper Chicken now to find out why Koreans love this fried chicken joint so much.
I tried a lot of Korean food and also spicy chickens..but here in Smoper, it’s a bit different and it’s a new food experience.. I felt a newbie when it comes to their chickens hahhaha

Smoper Korean Chicken drumsticks…. its just a plain version, you can add the spice later or let them prepare with spice coating and sauce dip.
Two kinds of sauce -- Gouchu chang for the beef and sweet spice for chicken
A must try here in Smoper is their curry flavored chicken.
It’s a different kind of curry, but the aroma of the curry will just tease you but the flavorings are a much different, the best to enjoy the curry chicken is to dip it to its curry sauce.
the curry sauce and flavor are not that strong or spicy. Its just right..and kids can enjoy it.
When they say spicy…. Korean spicy is soooo hot. at first I can tell that my mouth can stand the chili of the flavor but after some bite, my mouth surrendered hahahaha. but its best to have an ice cold iced tea nearby. You can also request to the Smoper crew if you want a lesser spice or super hot hot spice flavor for your chicken.
And here’s the EAT ALL YOU CAN PROMO!!! -- drat…. til July 16 lang pala.. visit their FB page to know more about any promo at Smoper
