If we were to write down a list of things the Koreans do well in, fried chicken would certainly rank high in the top 5. There’s just something about the addictive marinade and seasoning that keep our taste buds going back for more.
Nothing beats the feeling of sinking your teeth into piping hot chicken while the aroma lingers in the air. And as we all know, in order to achieve meat perfection, it has to be tender and moist on the inside, but stay completely crisp on the outside.
Fortunately for poultry lovers, our local food scene has seen an influx of Korean fried chicken chains in the recent years. Don’t fight that insatiable craving anymore, here are some new Korean fried chicken places you need to check out this weekend with your family and friends!
1. Jinjja Chicken
Taking the Korean street food culture to Singapore, Jinjja Chicken is a fast food-style eatery that serves up popular flavours like Soy Garlic and Yangnyeom. Diners can also choose to top up on sauces like tteokbokki cream or cheese sauce at just a dollar more.
Jinjja Chicken takes pride in the quality of its ingredients, using chicken from the best suppliers to ensure the freshness and juiciness of the meat.
Besides fried chicken, this joint also includes things like Jjajangmyeon, Seafood Jjamppong, and even the all-time-favourite Bingsu in its menu!

2. Chicken Clinic
Fried chicken presented on surgical equipments? Fortunately, this setup looks a lot more appetising than it sounds. This hospital-themed restaurant in Upper Thomson is probably the most eye-catching on the list.
The food is served on metal trays, complete with medical tweezers customers can use to pick up the chicken chunks. For people who prefer to have more fire in their food, they can choose to get syringes filled with spicy sauce that range from levels 1-3!
