Isn’t it everyone’s quest to find the perfect chicken wing? It’s also Bonus points if it’s Korean Fried Chicken (KFC), right?! I have a little secret to share, and you are in for some goodness coming your way.
I would like to introduce to you KABOOM Chicken. If you haven’t heard of it yet, you will soon. This family owned enterprise came into fruition when the mission to find that perfect wing was lacking in Toronto. Lucky for me, I got to chat with the KABOOM family and find out how this adventure unfolded.
We ate so much fried chicken in the last year to perfect and refine our recipes, you’d think we’d be sick of it by now, but we’re not. Who gets sick of fried food? It’s really good. Our friends and family had countless taste test trials with us, we lost count.
3. How many taste testers did you recruit, and how many did you trust?
Everyone has different palettes. It was important for us to test with ‘Foodie Friends’ that were passionately picky with their tastes and understood the quality of food and flavours. Also, we trusted them to be directly honest with their feedback. With the high benchmark we set with those who are food enthusiasts, we were confident that when we tested with others, that our food would get great reception. We were right with our approach as the feedback so far has been amazing.
4. The crunchy texture is such a vital part of the wing, how many tries did it take to get it right?
We played with many different types of starches. It was important for us to experiment to understand what properties would give us the texture we were looking for. We’ve done so many batches and different combinations we’ve lost count. In the end, it was well worth it.
5. Where can we find your KFC? And do you do cater?
Look out for them at the events mentioned. You certainly won’t regret this!!!! So much crispy, delicious chicken in one wing! See you there!
