With @dongasmr adding his ASMR magic touch, this KFC sandwich tastes as good as it sounds.

Marrying crispy Korean fried chicken with an outrageous kimchi mayo is a no-brainer. It honestly hits all the flavour wickets: spicy, salty, sweet, crunchy. Everything you could ever want in a sandwich.

We start with some juicy chicken thighs coated in a flavour-packed blend of buttermilk, gochugaru, and spices, all crispy and ready to meet your craving. 

To get really crispy Korean fried chicken, we believe the secret lies in the buttermilk marinade! It really helps the crust adhere to the chicken and gives it lots of flavour and moisture so the chicken doesn’t dry out while frying. 

Then we top it off with a creamy kick of kimchi mayo, blending mayo, gochujang, and zesty kimchi for that perfect tang.
