Eat | Drink | Chill @ Chicken Up Smile Dec 16, 2015

Categories : Korean | Korean Fried Chicken

Chicken up is a casual dining experience which allows people to experience Korean cuisine without travelling to Korea .
Chicken Up

Chicken Up

 
My first visit to chicken up thanks to Openrice Food tasting event as i wasn't really a fan of fried foods, but i always have a weak point when it comes to Korean cuisine.
I went to the outlet at Parkway Parade it is located at first floor beside Starbucks, they have a simple interior design which makes you feel cozy. I like the idea where they use glass bottle which contains preservative fruits and species as part of their decoration, it would be better if all containers are filled up with the same portions.

1) Pineapple Soju ($30++)

 
The pineapple soju was freshly made with real pineapple juice and serve in a whole pineapple. My first sip on the pineapple soju was sweet followed by the alcohol aftertaste.
At the bottom of the soju shot glass, i am able to taste the pineapple pulps.

2) Makguksu ($12++)

 
One of my top three favorite dishes at Chicken Up. Makguksu is a cold buckwheat noodle salad filled with cabbage, carrots, cucumber, sprinkled with seaweeds & sesame seed and one-half of a hard boiled egg. What i love most is the dressing, the dressing was made up of Korean chili paste, Vinegar and yellow mustard. Which makes this a wonderful appetizer to start your meal with.

3) Ganjang (Soya) Chicken Wings ($12++ / 4PCS)

 
Ganjang (Soya) chicken wings is one of my top three favorite dishes. Chicken wing was marinated with their special soya sauce (secret recipe) and freshly deep fried till golden brown.

4) Kimchi Fries ($18++)

 
Kimchi Fries are topped with fermented kimchi, mayonnaise, cheese, red onion and green chili. As the sauces melted quickly, hence my suggestion is to eat as soon as possible once served.

5) Bulgogi Fries ($18++)

 
Bulgogi Fries are topped with Bulgogi beef , mayonnaise , red onion , green onion  & sprinkled sesame seed. This is my number one dish i would definitely go back for !! It a heaven for beef lover ~

6) Haemul Pajeon - Seafood and Green Onion Pancakes ($18++)

 
Haemul Pajeon (Seafood Pancakes) is commonly found in Korean cuisine. The Seafood Pancakes consist lots of ingredients like shrimps, squids, chili pepper, onion & chives prepared with a Korean batter mix and beef seasoning.The pancake was more towards the soft chewy side rather than the crispy.

7) Ugly Tang Stew ($30++ - For 2pax)

 
Ugly Tang stew in Chicken up is actually Korea Army Stew, the usual Army Stew sold outside only consist of ham, sausage, luncheon meat, Kimchi & noodles whereby for Chicken up's Ugly Tang Stew it consists way much more than our usual army stew, which is pork belly, ham, sausage, vegetable, macaroni, baked bean, cheese & noodle boiled in a hotpot with chicken stock broth. A note to small eaters, it's actually quite a big portion which is more likely for 4 pax.

8) Jabchae ($14++)

 
Jabchae is a stir-fried glass noodle with carrots, onion, chives & sprinkled with sesame seeds in a secret blend of soya sauce with beef seasoning.

9) Yangnyum Chicken Wings ($12++)

 
The Yangnyum Chicken Wings is something similar to Ganjang Chicken Wings just that it wasn't fried with soya sauce but coated with Korean spicy chili sauce. The spiciness of the chicken wings wasn't very spicy, which is good for those who unable to take spicy stuff like me.

10) Topokki with Cheese and Seafood ($20++)

 
Topokki with Cheese and Seafood was too spicy for me to sample it. I have a weak point when it comes to Topokki too ~~~ so i took up the courage just to sample the Topokki only. Topokki was chewy, but i prefer the tradition Topokki with fish cake.

11) Watermelon Soju ($38++)

 
Watermelon Soju is served in a big bowl filled with dry ice underneath the extremely huge watermelon. Watermelon juice is freshly blend, a whole bottle of soju was poured together with the watermelon juice and stir for a minute or so. It is good for a group of 4~6 pax as soju alcohol percentage is relatively high (varies from 16.7% to 45%).

Toa Payoh's Famous Zi Char Smile Dec 01, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong | Hawker Centre | Zi Char

 
Hong Sheng Restaurant has been there for more than 40 years , located in a coffee shop just within 10 minutes walk from Braddell Mrt. It has been the famous Zi Char in the Toa Payoh neighbourhood for their dishes & relatively cheap prices.
Their operating hours is 5pm to 10.30PM , Tuesday to Sunday only.

 

 
We visited on Saturday at around 6PM , we was quite lucky as there wasn't any queue!! Usually it can be quite crowded especially during the dinner time. Some of our friends has experience queuing for an hour hence my suggestion is to go early !

Here are the dishes we order for 5 Pax,

1) Sauteed Prawn

 
Prawn was big! The sauce of the prawn was good but sadly prawn was over cooked hence the shell was stick to the prawn meat. sad
Portion ordered : Small

2) Prawn Paste Chicken

 
It one of their famous dishes , the skin was marinated with prawn paste flavour and nicely fried till light golden brown. It was cripsy at the outside and the meat was tender . 
Portion Ordered : Medium ( total 10 pcs )

3) Fried rice

 
The fried rice has the home cook taste which is different from most of the zi char i had ate.
Portion ordered : Medium

4) Braised Tofu

 
I have never seen any other zi char with so many ingredients !!! Inside the braised tofu it has Prawns , Sotongs , mushrooms and the best it has my flavourite pig stomachs !!! Portion ordered : Small

5) Pork ribs 

 
This is also one of their famous dishes, Pork Ribs ! Seriously it fabulous !!! I have never tasted any zi char pork ribs as nice as this. Their sauce for the pork ribs is unique , a taste which words couldn't explain.... it taste abit sour, not sweet and has some rice wine taste. 
Portion ordered : Small 

6) Sambal Kang Kong

 
The sambal taste is really aunthetic , it has the "hei bi hiam" taste.
Portion Ordered : Small

7) Seafood Hor Fun

 
This is their super famous dishes , i would definitely go back for this again. The amount of prawns , pig stomachs , sotongs & meats is really generous ~~ It has the aunthentic "wok" taste which you hardly can find in Singapore.
Portion Ordered : Medium

Total cost for all those dish was just $74!

Review:
Their waffle is awesome! come down to have a try, they might look too sweet but don't get cheated by the looks. The chocolate is Belgium chocolate ! Waffle is so crispy even with the ice cream melted . $9.90 for a big portion waffle come with 2 scoops of ice cream , 1 macaron and fruits sprinkled on top of it. Their house special flavours for waffle is Belgium chocolate and Horffles. lol


Pros :
staff is super friendly ! (no service charge)
-They explain to you their menu.
-serve you with ice water.
-greet you when you step in/leave the place
