By the time I post this review, I realize that nearly a year is up, and it would soon be time to post another New Year's eve review. For review on my previous visit to Chicken Up, check it out here. We came on New Year's Eve, just in time to welcome brand new 2016. By then, Chicken Up has expanded by quite a fair bit, with some "fast-food" concept outlets serving mainly fried chicken without any alcoholic drinks - we had initially went to the Jurong East outlet and discovered that, so popped down to its flagship Tanjong Pagar branch.
During my second visit, it was mainly to bring The Beau to try Korean Fried Chicken and Watermelon Soju. We were seated upstairs this time round.
Watermelon Soju (SGD$38.00) came first, working up our appetite for food and quenching thirst throughout and after the meal. It was sweet, cooling and alcohol content was fairly robust, which was what I liked.
Bulgogi Fries (SGD$18.00) - shoestring fries loaded with delicious soy-marinated beef and a load of other homemade ingredients, like your Western beef fries but varying in taste.
Finally, the next main reason for being here - Korean Fried Chicken Wings (SGD$12.00 for 4 pieces). We ordered 2 different flavours, being the "Ganjang" aka soy and "Yangnyum" - the latter being a sweetish chilli sauce. The Deep-fried Chicken Wings were crispy and deeply immersed in flavours, yet still manage to retain moisture. Needless to say, both of us enjoyed them very much.
Not bad, thumbs up for Chicken Up once again. On a sidenote, wonder what happened to its garlic flavour?
