I have written previously that Korean-style fried chicken is one of my favourite guilty indulgences, and I am always on the lookout to try new places. If you are also a fan of Korean fried chicken, add Woori Nara Korean Restaurant to your list.
I have walked past Woori Nara many times, and the reason why it took me so long to come here is because I always end up going to my favourite Kim’s Family Restaurant, which is located along the same stretch at Lorong Kilat.
Woori Nara specialises in Korean chicken, and they offer four different flavours – original, soy, garlic, and its signature ‘yum yum’ sauce – on the menu. First-timers should go for the Sampler (S$20) – a mixture of original, yum yum and soy fried chicken. I won’t say that Woori Nara has the best Korean fried chicken in Singapore, but it does a decent rendition.
Although the Korean fried chicken is the highlight, some of the dishes also deserve equal attention. You can also find classic Korean dishes such as Grilled Pork Belly (S$35), Stone Pot Bibimbap (S$17), and Seafood & Kimchi Pancake (S$15). We also thoroughly enjoyed the Grilled Mackerel (S$17). The fish was fresh, and simply prepared. The Soybean Paste Soup (S$17), on the other hand, was mediocre and slightly over-priced. We would rather go for the Ginseng Chicken Soup (S$20).
All in all, the food at Woori Nara is decent, and if you are staying in the area, this is certainly a spot where you can come for some snacks and drinks.
