KFC Launches Texas Barbecue and Korean Bibimbap Rice Bowls

3:19:00 AM

Ready to go on another food trip around the world with the country’s trusted chicken authority? From the southern comfort of Texas to the vibrant streets of Korea comes the newest addition to the KFC Food Trip series – the Texas Barbecue and Korean Bibimbap Rice Bowls!  

If you like your chicken smoky and sweet, then the KFC Texas Barbecue Rice Bowl is for you! KFC Fun Shots glazed in savory barbecue sauce, this Texas-inspired favorite comes with spiced rice and sweet corn that are prefect complements to any southern dish. 

But if you prefer something more spicy and savory, then you should try the KFC Korean Bibimbap Rice Bowl! It is a perfect mix of KFC Hot Shots, flavorful kimchi rice, fresh cabbage and carrots with egg in special Korean sauce. 

“The introduction of these eastern and western flavors really gives a unique twist to our chicken offerings,” said KFC marketing director Errol Magdato. “Just last year, we introduced the Spanish Salpicao and Japanese Teriyaki Rice Bowls, which all quickly became household names. And now, we have these delicious flavors from Korea and Texas.” 

I love both of their newest offering but my favorite is the Texas Barbecue maybe because I'm a bit biased about anything barbecue. The sauce is really good, sweet but with a kick of 
spiced rice and corn, what more can you ask for. 

During the KFC East Meets West Fully Loaded Shootout held recently at the KFC SM Mall of Asia branch, the new KFC Food Trip Rice Bowls were launched via dance routines that featured cheerleaders dressed as Texas cowgirls and Korean pop stars. The set up was really cute too.

Like last year, the KFC East Meets West Fully Loaded Shootout treated the fans to a unique basketball experience as they got the chance to meet and play with their basketball idols from the PBA and the NBA. 

Team East/Team KFC was captained by Rain or Shine Elasto Painters forward Gabe Norwood while Team West/Team NBA was headed by Philadelphia 76ers center/power forward Nerlens Noel who was in Manila for the Jr. NBA Training Camp.

Fans competed in a 3-on-3 Basketball Shootout while Norwood and Noel both competed in the Captain’s Shootout. 

Team Nerlens Noel emerged victorious after the exhibition games. Acer Philippines also gave away special prizes to the winning teams.

Both teams enjoyed the game and they're both considered a winner for me. They really exerted their best efforts. Congrats to both teams! Teams with Gabe Norwood, Nerlens Noel, Ms. Pat Yupangco and Symon Siman of KFC.
