It is no secret that Singaporeans are addicted to Korean food. Ever since the K-wave hit us a few years back, we have never stopped craving for Korean food. It also goes without saying that our favourite kind of Korean food comes in the form of Korean fried chicken.
Chik Soo Korean Chicken at Punggol Drive Oasis Terraces specialises in Korean Fried Chicken—if their name isn’t already obvious enough. And hearing so much about it, we were excited to see how their Korean chicken tasted compared to other famous brands such as Nene Chicken, Chicken Up and 4 Fingers. Here’s what we thought.
The entrance of Chik Soo is not hard to spot, and it is located right smack under the giant Samsung television in the main area.
The interior of the place is quite small and dim, but it made for a cosy environment that is great for intimate get-togethers with family and friends.
The wings came in 3 flavours: Soya Sauce, Sweet Chilli and Hot & Spicy Wings. All of these were priced at S$12 per plate of 4 wings. We decided to opt for their Hot and Spicy Wings because we were curious to see how spicy they really were.
The fried chicken was much bigger than we expected it to be, and the 4 large wings were jostling with each other for space on the plate. Each wing was generously drenched in a copious amount of spicy, chilli sauce, and the sight of it definitely made our mouths water.
The chicken skin was incredibly crispy and crunchy while maintaining a good tender inside that was cooked thoroughly. The spicy sauce, we were sad to say, was not very spicy, so people who can’t take spice can order this without fear. However, we didn’t mind the lack of spice as it was still deliciously tangy and sweet.
Besides chicken, they also sell a number of other classic Korean dishes like Army Stew, Bibimbap and Ginseng Chicken Soup. We also tried the Army Stew set as they were having a promotion where any choice of stew came with a plate of gyoza for only S$36.80.
The army stew has 3 levels of heat, so you can choose how spicy you want it to be. It came in a large pot and had delicious ingredients such as spam, crab rolls, chicken, sausages, tofu, corn and spicy paste mixed in.
The stew had just the right amount of spiciness and tanginess, and we love how all the ingredients soaked up all the goodness of the broth. It definitely is an incredibly satisfying dish that is great to slurp down on a cold, rainy day.
For the gyoza, we had the ones with kimchi and pork fillings. The gyoza was deliciously crisp and golden and made a satisfying crunch sound when we bit into it.
