Korean

Nene Chicken Singapore

We ordered the Freaking Hot chicken and it was really spicy! If you can’t take spicy food, you should not order this at all.

They provided plastic gloves so you can eat your chicken without dirtying your hands. It is also a good thing because the spicy chicken is coated with a thick spicy sauce and it can be quite messy if you are not paying special attention.

The chicken is moist and slightly soggy due to the sauce coated on it. Its original flavoured chicken wasn’t the most crispy if I were to compare it to Chicken Up or Chir Chir. The portion was also slightly smaller, so NeNe chicken is suitable if you are eating alone. I also felt the chickens they used were slightly smaller in size. Nonetheless, we enjoyed the fragrant Freaking Hot sauce that was numbing to the tongue yet shiok at the same time.

Chicken Up

Riding the wave with Korean fried chicken craze!!!!

I was impressed with its fried chicken that is so crispy, so juicy and full of flavour! It adapts the Korean methods of removing the fat from the skin and double-frying. This is the reason why its chicken is tender and succulent!

The japchae we had was good. The glass noodles were cooked al dente and flavour and seasoning was just the right amount.

Japchae $12

I must comment on this onion bomb that we had. It had the most awesome onion taste, and was not too greasy. I particular like the mustard sauce that comes with it. It has a nice spicy flavour that complemented the onion bomb.

Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory

This korean fried chicken place was opened not long ago replacing the previous Sushi Tei lot at Bedok Point.

We bought the Groupon voucher and had our dinner here last night. The queue was very long but we managed to be there early before the queue started.

The waiting time for the food was surprisingly short. The delicious corn cup ($0.50 per pax) is refillable! The chicken we ordered was awesome! They use fresh chickens!!!! The roasted chicken with rosemary is the best I have ever eaten! The meat is tender and seasoned to perfection. The spicy chicken was brilliant too, meat was juicy and its spicyness was not overpowering. The salad with chicken was made great by its sauce. However the fries were not warm enough when served.

The portions were big and luckily there were five of us to share all these food!

To start eating your chicken, you can use these pair of “tongs” to tear the chicken meat apart without dirtying your hands. So innovative!

I will award this spicy chicken a Michelin star!!! The meat is so tender and moist, so well-cooked!!!  The spice level really gives punches and kicks!!!

Crispy Fried Chicken $32.90

Not the kind of garlic taste that you will expect. It was quite a letdown. I think the chicken was sprinkled with some garlic spicies powder and some seasoned garlic soy sauce sprinked over the top. Wished there was more garlic flavour to this.

Plain water is complimentary.

All in all, we have bought more Groupon vouchers and can’t wait for return visits to try other items on its menu!!!

Ask me which korean fried chicken place is the best? I have tried Nene Chicken, 4 Fingers, Chicken Up and I think every restaurant has its own uniqueness. All are nice!

Drinking water is complimentary! Prices exclude 10% service charge and 7% GST.

Nolboo Hangari Galbi

One authentic Korean BBQ restaurant you can visit! I love their kimchi stew!

Every customer is served a complimentary pumpkin porridge as an appetizer and a red bean dessert and hot tea at the end. The banchan is complimentary and is very fresh. However the kimchi that they served is not the best I’ve eaten.

Would definitely come back for their BBQ!

맛있는라면

This packaging doesn’t really state the flavour of the noodles except only that it’s spicy. Just by looking at the colour of the soup, you are well assured that it is of certain spicy-ness. The taste is really quite good and you get the “shiok” factor after slurping it down.

후루룩 칼국수

These noodles have a nice texture accompanied by a light chicken base broth. The garnishes add a lively yellow, green, orange and brown colour to the slightly off-white flat noodles.

바지락칼국수

It was a surprise when I opened this packet of noodles for lunch yesterday! It comes with a vacuumed packet of clams!!!

The noodles are not the traditional thin type. It is white, flat and thin! Its texture is good too!

I cooked this in a microwave, so after the noodles are cooked, I opened the packet of clams and poured them inside my noodles. The clams opened themselves so elegantly!

The soup base is light yet filled with the sweetness of the clams. Lovely instant noodles!
