I am no fan of Korean food (and Korean culture in fact) in general, but I’m a big fan of fried chicken. Fried chicken is my comfort food. I grew up loving every KFC meal and fried is really the best form of chicken.
I’ve heard of this name since they first opened, but since there are so many Korean fried chicken restaurants in Singapore, I didn’t give it much thought until recently when they opened a shop in Tanjong Katong. When looking for a new fried chicken place to try, this name popped up in my mind so why not!
Honestly, I didn’t have super high hopes. I just wished for a decent meal but it turned out much better than I expected!
The menu is kind of confusing when I tried ordering. They had 4 categories – roasted, crunch, “fried rice” and sauce. Basically the first 2 are oven baked while the last 2 are fried. The crunch refers to crispy oven baked chicken, while “fried rice” is their typical fried chicken, except that they use rice flour for their batter. Sauce chicken is just fried chicken with sauced drenched over.
It would be more convenient for new customers if they offered a combo platter featuring a little of each category. But at least they offer half portions, so we didn’t need to commit to just 1 type when we are unsure what’s good.
Sauced Soy Sauce(Original) – $20.00++
Original refers to mixed chicken parts. You can select boneless or all wings if you wish, but they’ll cost more. The chicken was crispy, juicy and well flavoured within. I was pleased with this!
Fried Wings – $19.00++
This is their original fried chicken and their secret method is to use rice flour instead of wheat flour for extra crunch. Indeed, the crispiness was very light and different from the thick crusts you get from regular fried chicken. For fried chicken purists who love savouring fried chicken in their original form, this is the dish to look out for.
The chicken meat within is juicy and flavourful and I appreciate that. I do not like tasteless chicken even if it’s crispy.
Crunch Original (Boneless) – $20.00++
I was confused looking at the menu not understanding the difference between “crunch” and “fried” but basically crunch is their oven baked crispy chicken. I’ve not had crispy chicken coming from an oven before so this was new to me. It lived up to it’s name and it was crunchy! I chose boneless for this and it was really convenient to eat.
Overall I was quite pleased with this place and it’s good to have a fried chicken place in this area, especially since it opens until 1am! You can go next door to get some Nasi Lemak from Pungol Nasi Lemak and get fried chicken here. It’ll be a great supper option.
Overall: Crispy and juicy fried chicken
