The official fast food partner of the NBA, KFC Philippines launched on Sunday at the SM Mall of Asia KFC branch two new Food Trip Rice Bowls: Korean Bibimbap and Texas Barbecue to go along with the very entertaining KFC East meets West 3 on 3 basketball shootout.
I tried the new rice bowls and the food trip experience was awesome. I felt like I was going around the world with the country’s trusted chicken authority's new choices. 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.”
The media and 2 big basketball stars NBA's Nerlens Noel and PBA's Gabe Norwood were there to join the festivities. They also led the Team East and Team West respectively in the basketball shootout.

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 my team, Team West/Team NBA was headed by Philadelphia 76ers center/power forward Nerlens Noel who was in Manila for the Jr. NBA Training Camp.
The media competed in a 3-on-3 Basketball Shootout while Norwood and Noel both competed in the Captain’s Shootout. Team WEST emerged victorious after the exhibition games. Acer Philippines also gave away special prizes to the winning teams.
