Brinkle Combo is an item from BHC Chicken.  Breaded fried chicken, coated in a flavored powder.  The term “brinkle” is (presumably) a portmanteau of the Korean word “bburyeo (sprinkle)” + the English word “sprinkle.”  The website describes it as (loosely translated): “The magical taste of brinkle, nothing like it in the world.”

Upon taking a single nibble – it tasted like sawdust sweetened with saccharin – I spit it out.  So gross.  Only 5 posts into the new cycle, and already we have a strong contender for the worst dish of the year.
