Oven & Fried Chicken (OFC), are created from the unity of OKKUDAK and SSALDAK, two of the most popular chicken restaurants in Korea. OKKUDAK’s speciality is in the preparation of its chicken through baking and without oil while SSALDAK’s unique chicken coat of rice flour, instead of wheat flour is another highlight to look forward to. continue reading

Okkudak and Ssaldak are 2 distinct and separate Korean chicken franchises, specialising in oven baked chicken / roast chicken, and fried chicken respectively. For their 1st foray into Singapore, the Okkudak and Ssaldak concepts have been combined under the Okkudak Oven Baked Chicken brand, with the 1st outlet opening its doors in Telok Ayer in October 2014.Ambience at Okkudak is clean and modern. I like that they have different areas for seating, the ground floor has an open seating area, as well as a partioned seating area, while the upper floor is used for overflow capacity or private events. Colour themes of red, green, white, and brown permeate the place, while decor pieces are quirky, with most featuring chickens.Service at Okkudak is good. Staff are friendly, offering greetings / goodbyes, and are able to carry a conversation well. I find staff to be knowlegable when questioned on general items in the menu, and they are able to make good recommendations. They're also able to provide instructions on how best to consume a dish, and well check back regularly throughout the meal to see if you need further assistance.Food at Okkudak, as befits the Okkudak + Ssaldak concept, revolves around their signature oven baked chicken, and fried chicken. In general, I personally feel their chicken dishes tastes great, though several side dishes were somewhat odd. Portions are served in either whole, or half size, and are meant for communal dining, I recommend at least 4 or more people. The prices at Okkudak are quite high though, budget about SGD $45 per person for a meal here.The Fried Original (SGD $33 Whole / $18 Half) chicken is battered with a special house recipe batter made from rice flour. This results in the savoury skin shattering easily with a loud, satisfiying crunch. The meat is tender, moist, and flavourful, and it isn't oily! While slightly pricey, it's among the better fried chicken we've tasted!At first glance, the Roasted Wings (SGD $34 Whole / $19 Half) looked dry to me... until I bit into it and realised how wrong I was. The chicken meat is tender and very juicy, with a nice savoury flavour from the skin. This oven baked delight is totally delicious, and the meat comes off the bone easily. Again, slightly pricey, but it's even better than the fried chicken here, you simply must try this oven baked chicken!The Sauced Wings (SGD $36 Whole / $21 Half) are fried chicken wings, coated in a midly spicy, sweet and savoury sauce, which is imported from South Korea. Sticky and messy, I like that the chicken skin retains its crispy texture, while the sauce, which is evenly coated on the chicken, lends a depth of flavour. Spice levels seemed to be toned down here, the mildly spicy version only has a slight tinge of heat!Despite the confusing name, the Welsh Onion Chicken (SGD $38 Whole / $22 Half) was easily the best dish of the evening! Similar in style to Pa Dak, a soy garlic and spring onion chicken dish in South Korea, the Welsh Onion Chicken features fresh strips of spring onion, in a light refreshing sauce. The chicken meat is savoury, tender, and chunky, releasing its juices when bit. Paired together, the spring onion lends a floral, earthy essence to the moist, baked chicken. Highly recommended!
