Ok.... I think most of us can't resist fried food! Especially now with so many choices for korean style fried chicken. This visit was actually my first time trying the korean style one and i must say i am not disappointed! It's fried to perfection, no bloody meat in between, glazed with really yummy soy flavour sauce. It's sinful but i will gladly do it again. It's a small place though but i still find it ok since i was rather busy enjoying the chicken wings and chatting with my friend.

Pretty decent tasting Korean fried chicken but you can only order in multiples of 8 ($16) not exactly friendly for sharing.. The food came quickly even though we were told that they had run out off whole chickens on a Sunday morning at 1130am when they had just opened. The chicken was crispy, tender but also very oily. At the base of the basket was a layer of oil, definitely not for the health conscious!! The chicken pieces are also quite small so get more and share! But 8 also means you can onl

The chicken was crispy, tender but also very oily. At the base of the basket was a layer of oil, definitely not for the health conscious!! The chicken pieces are also quite small so get more and share! But 8 also means you can only come in parties of 2 or 4.

It's a very small restaurant and it can probably get really packed for dinners. I we ended spending $50 for 4 people who aren't big eaters. The prices are nett which is a plus. There was only one waitress serving the whole restaurant and she was quite overwhelmed but nonetheless we were happy to receive our food quickly..

It is a small, simple joint with a limited capacity of 24 indoors. The first time we went on a weekday evening, it was nearly filled save for one last table. Sadly though, they were out of their korean fried chicken (yes my world crashed when I heard that). Nevertheless, we went ahead and ordered the SPAM C.C Burger.

Spam. C.C Burger. They also offer an alternative version with tuna instead of spam. ($6.90)

It is a burger made up of SPAM(luncheon meat) encased within a layer of kimchi between 2 chewy seaweed-rice patties. The spam was fried crisp on the outside while retaining its meaty moisture. It went very well with the crunchiness of the sour kimchi (I like it sour). The entire combination was superb. Must get.

We also settled for the chicken tenders, which were pieces of chicken breast fried in batter. These reminded me of the ones at Popeyes. The batter was light and the chicken tenders did not leave an oily aftertaste in the mouth, but it did seem a little bland.

Chicken Tenders ($10)

Finally, we returned on a weekday noon after that failed first visit. Yes. This time round, there were the fried chicken. On top of that, they had special lunch sets too. Each set comes with 4 pieces of fried chicken wings and drumlets, seaweed-flecked rice and kimchi.

Hot and Iced Barley Tea ($1 a cup)

We opted for the lunch sets instead of the pricier (and less small-group friendly) ala-carte, which only has Chicken wings available in 8-piece Wings and drumlets ($16) or whole chicken ($29.90).

Garlic-flavoured Fried Chicken Set ($8.90)

The Garlic Fried Chicken came extremely fragrant. A bite into this and yes, definitely one of the crispiest fried chicken around, The savoury-sweet garlic marinade drizzled atop it didn't affect its crispiness at all.

Spicy Fried Chicken Set ($8.90)

As for the Spicy Fried Chicken, be warned, the spiciness is really spicier than a good portion of us can normally take. Despite it being really hot, I preferred it to the other flavour because it is fully savoury.

Both versions tried were completely crispy with tender flesh inside. However, the meat itself could have done with more flavour. Perhaps it was the chicken used, but there was no natural sweetness to the meat. Only the marinade and chicken skin provided the flavour.

We also took away the Soy-flavoured fried chicken. Sadly, the chicken lost its crispiness from being in the box too long. Still, the flavour was there. The Soy Fried Chicken resembled Four Fingers' Soy version - light saltiness with a sticky sweetness.

With the quality and consistency of the fried chicken, it is definitely a place worth checking out for Korean Fried Chicken lovers, albeit a little pricy. The lunch sets will provide better value if eating alone or in a pair. I should think Choo Choo better than Four Fingers, but number 1? It remains to be seen with more competitors versions waiting to be tried.

The first time I came, I had to wait outside without any staff greeting us. After few minutes, some patrons in front of us told us that we need to go to the counter and put our name on the list in which they would call us if there was table available. Looking at the queue (5 groups ahead of us), we decided to go somewhere else and I didn't receive any call from them that night. Lucky that we decided not to wait.

So, I came back for lunch this time. There were many people queueing the other night and so I thought it had to be good. There was no queue during lunch time though.

They serve 4 different flavours: sweet, soy, spicy, and original. Set lunch I ate was served with seaweed rice and kimchi. The batter was crispy and the rice had a unique texture to it. But the kimchi was too acidic.
