Korea Takes KFC Double Down to a Whole New Level

Korea Takes KFC Double Down to a Whole New Level

Korea may have just beaten America when it comes to fattening, bread-less sandwiches.

They call it the Zinger Double Down King. The name is quite a mouthful and so is the concoction itself, which is Korea’s heart attack-inducing version of KFC’s infamous Double Down. Like the original, there is no bread involved in this sandwich: instead two pieces of fried chicken act as the buns and sandwiched between are the bacon strips, cheese, barbecue sauce, pepper sauce, and an all-beef burger patty. And no, in case you’re wondering, you don’t actually need to sign a waiver to take on the Zinger Double Down King. You just need $7, an empty stomach, and nerves of steel.

The sandwich’s tagline is “no bun, all meat.” And it’s true. Although we couldn’t find the nutritional facts for this new Double Down version, the original had almost a day’s worth of sodium.

The King is the newest Double down remix to hit Korea. Last year, the Zinger Double Down Maxx put hash browns, bacon, and cheese in between the two pieces of fried chicken.

KFC has made a ɽouble Down' sandwich stuffed with a mozzarella patty

The world is not short of decadent fast food options. Between stuffed crust pizzas and Grand Big Macs, there is a smorgasbord of massive meals out there waiting to make even the hungriest diner feel slightly sick. But, when it comes to toeing the line between awesome and obscene, the KFC Double Down is the deep-fried king of the hill.

Originally, the wildly popular cult sandwich was actually built around a fairly simple premise. Instead of burger buns, the dish used two fried chicken fillets to sandwich a filling of cheese, bacon and sauce. It threw out the concept of balance and whole-heartedly embraced delicious crispy excess. For a while, it looked like the logical endpoint of OTT fast food. Now, however, the fried chicken specialists seem to have taken things one step further.

Check out the commercial for the new ɽouble Down':

Courtesy of the crazed creative team at KFC Singapore, the chain recently unveiled an all-new take on the overindulgent Double Down. Dubbed the “Mozzarella Zinger Double Down”, this new monster features the same chicken breast buns, but ups the ante even more by stuffing a deep-fried crispy mozzarella patty between the two.

Described on the KFC Singapore website as a “Mozzarella patty with tomato basil sauce, sandwiched between two slices of glorious Zinger Fillet,” this new Franken-food is proof that there’s always another level of excess. To make things even more exciting for Southeast Asian KFC fans, the sandwich isn’t the only awesome thing that’s been added to the menu.

Why not try our Giant Mayo Chicken Sandwich recipe:

As per Chewboom , the chain has also released new “Sour Cream & Onion Fries”, served with an “onion sprinkle” packet and a sour cream and onion dipping sauce. With both items apparently only available for a limit time, there’s never been a better excuse to take your taste buds to the limit.

Obviously, news that the cheesy chicken treat is only currently available in Singapore will be a massive disappointment to many disaffected KFC fans. Nonetheless, the fact that it’s been released at all should give everyone hope that there are more mad Double Down variants on the horizon. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.
