Among the earliest pioneers of the Korean Fried Chicken craze in Singapore, Kko Kko Nara has been going strong since opening in 2008. Owner Ms Eon Lee, a self-taught chef, spent 6 months perfecting her fried chicken recipes, which has quickly gained Kko Kko Nara a loyal following.

And while the general ambience and service standards are passable, the food at Kko Kko Nara is consistently good!

Ambience at Kko Kko Nara differs depending on which part of the 3 storey shophouse you're seated in. The casual dining areas are bustling, vibrant and noisy, with average ambient lighting and minimal decor. Furniture is spaced closely together. The more intimate dining areas feature quiet private booths, dimly lit ambient lighting, and rather elegant furnishings. I actually find the casual area to be more suitable for normal, quick dining, but the private area to be more suitable for long, relaxing snacks rather than meals.

Service at Kko Kko Nara is decent, as staff are friendly and efficient. However, the language barrier sometimes makes communication difficult, as not all the Korean staff here are able to understand English. Those who do are pretty ok, as they carry out requests quickly. The e-menu has helpful English as well as Korean words, and ordering through the tablet is easy. While day to day / ordinary requests are fine, the problem arises with special requests, as it's hard to get staff to understand with their limited command of English. Example: Asking for a baby high chair is easily understood, asking them to print another copy of the recipt for verification is not easily understood.

Food at Kko Kko Nara is distinctly Korean, as evidenced by all the Korean staff and Korean diners. The menu is extensive, but focused on South Korea cuisine, in particular, Korean Fried Chicken, along with several authentic soups, appetizers, and drinks. Dishes are tasty and packed with flavour, and portions are typically large, designed for sharing / communal dining. In fact, I feel Kko Kko Nara has possibly among the best Korean Fried Chicken in Singapore! Prices are reasonable for the large portions, budget about SGD $45 per person for a meal here.

Loved the Makgeolli / Rice Wine (SGD $25) here, which has a milky white colour, a thin texture, and a taste of rice with a slight sweetness. This South Korea beverage is traditionally made from rice, mixed with nuruk, a Korean fermentation starter. The version here remains true to the original, and finished all too fast. Highly recommended!

The Haemul Pajeon / Seafood Scallion Pancake (SGD $28) has a nice amount of fresh shrimp / prawn, squid, and scallions stuffed within the thin, crisp pancake. Flavour is lovely, with the juicy freshness of the seafood, the earthy vegetable flavour of the scallions, the crunch of the pancake. Dip it into the soy sauce for an added depth of flavour! Good!
