Koko Buri: Pampanga's Pride for Pure Canola Deep-Fried Chicken

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The next restaurant in our Pampanga Hot Air Balloon and Restaurant Tour is Koko Buri. It was said to have been originally a Korean restaurant but they diversified already into many kinds of dishes thus re-branding themselves as the restaurant with international cuisines.

The Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta is an annual event held in Clark, Pampanga. It's already on its 20th year of featuring multi-colored and shaped hot air balloons. The four day hot air balloon event from February 11 to 14 is the biggest aviation sports event in the Philippines.

We were staying at Holiday Inn Clark for an overnight only between February 10 to 11 for convenience on attending the hot air balloon fiesta during the early hours of the morning. We went to Koko Buri after our lunch at Mequeni restaurant of Holiday Inn where we had a buffet treat. Imagine how still full we are from that dining experience. We were actually surprised that we couldn't stop ourselves from still dining at Koko Buri. We were planning to just take photos and videos for the blog fature, but their food were just too good to ignore.

You can't miss Koko Buri's unique exterior with a huge yellow letter sign that spell the restaurant's name: Koko Buri - which is also a great spot for photo ops, and selfies or groupies. You can see at the end of this article that all the members of the Wazzup Pilipinas team, including our driver from Froehlich Tours, posed with the letters in front of the restaurant. All five of us were proudly wearing our shirts from 1st Draft Manila Clothing, our official shirt provider.

They have a few more branches all over Pampanga and has also expanded in Manila to serve more customers.

The restaurant also has a special area for Al Fresco dining with a truly romantic ambiance especially during night time, and an air-conditioned area for those who prefer to remain cool away from the heat of the sun.

We had an awesome table spread of Koko Buri dishes all served neatly for a great photo opportunity. Everyone indulge on the dishes even though we were still full from our lunch at Mequeni restaurant of Holiday Inn Clark.

To start the meal time right, highly recommended are the Koko Buri Pork BBQ, the Fried Creamy Dory Sticks and their spicy Japanese Yaki Udon.

My favorite would be the Creamy Dory sticks for the better appetizer while I believe the Japanese Yaki Udon was sensationally spiced to perk up the mood. The Pork BBQ was all meaty and less fat making it a swell treat to consume.

Pizza Con Gambari
The Pizza Con Gambari is one of their specialty pizzas that will soon become your favorite as well. There's also the Baja Fiesta, Cornita Di Corea, Margherita, and Primavera pizzas. I'm a pizza lover but I'm too picky in brand and toppings. This pizza with all those shrimps on top was a winner!

Koko Buri Chili Chicken
Koko Buri Soy Chicken
Koko Buri is famous for their pure Canola oil deep-fried chicken that also comes in soy garlic and chili flavors. Satisfy your cravings dining on the healthier way to fry chicken especially with the original recipe. All flavors were true to its promise, and I have to warn you that you'll grow addicted by the crispy goodness of each. e were not able to eat everything up so I volunteered to bring most of it back home. That's how great it was!

Nagasaki Champon
They have other specialties that will surely heat up your day like the Nagasaki Champon. Experience the flavor of four different kinds of sea food in one hot pot. It's bound to heat up any time of the day and perfect to bring the dead back to life. Lol!

Oriental Chicken Salad
The crisp, fresh and juicy Oriental Chicken Salad is a great way to start lunch or dinner before you get to the main course. You'll be surprised how this plate was totally empty in just a few seconds.

Their several choices of fruit smoothies completes the dining experience to perfection.

Several choices for Fruit Shakes or Slushes
Slush drinks made from fresh fruits are the perfect match to all the Koko Buri specialties.
