11 Facts About Chicken Up, 1 of the Pioneers in Korean Fried Chicken in S’pore

Korean fried chicken needs no introduction here. You’ve got wings or other succulent chicken pieces that have been fried to perfect crunchiness, and then mixed with a spicy Korean sauce and to top it all off, a generous sprinkling of sesame seeds.

Aisey, now I wish I could head over and eat Korean Fried Chicken. And in case you didn’t know Chicken Up is one of the forerunners of Korean fried chicken on the island.

Here are 10 other facts you need to know about the brand.

Their Secret Move In Cooking
Every piece of chicken is treated to a royal bath – we mean a marinating process of 12 hours using its original recipe before it hits the frying pan. 12 hours! That’s more than a cat’s sleeping hours. Or maybe not lah, but you get the idea.

Singapore’s #1 Korean Fried Chicken
Yes, and that’s based on its rating on HungryGoWhere. And it’s supposed to be the one that started the Korean Fried Chicken trend here in Singapore. So far, it has yet to die off. Yet to.

Types of Fried Chicken Flavours
Just a few that deserved to be named here, and you have to try when you’re visiting the outlet – Yangnyum chicken wings, Gangang chicken wings – soya based, by the way, and if you’re just feeling peckish, give the finger wings a go!

Family Friendly Leh
Yes, there’s a whole range of meals to pick from – good for kids with their small-bite items, noodles if you’re parents who aren’t feeling the Korean fried chicken vibe (which they should!) and for the hipster, a zany mix of beverages.

We’ll still have the fried chicken – that’s a given.

Attend a Cooking Class
Wow, if you want to learn how to cook, you can head here also ha. It’ll cost you S$150 for 4 classes, which is usually priced at S$50 per class otherwise. Students and senior citizens can attend for half the price as S$25 per class too! Imagine this: cooking Chicken Up right up in your kitchen.

Have Your Event There
If you’re looking for a place to have a small gathering or a dinner party, look no further as Chicken Up is also available for events. All you have to do is drop them an email or call them using the details on their official website.

They Have Delivery
Yes, you don’t have to step out and get your Korean fried chicken fix. Deliveroo has got you covered as far as Chicken Up comes into play. Just place and order and enjoy your meal when it comes!

Menu Sampler
In case you don’t know what you can eat here apart from the fried chicken, here’s a sampler of a few dishes – Bulgogi FRIES, watermelon bingsu for dessert, Jabchae noodles, and Spam rice balls. Sounds yum, right?

Number of Branches
Got four branches here – Buangkok, Tanjong Pagar, Parkway Parade and Orchard. And dig this – got 2 more outlets in Malaysia la. One is in JB at Taman Mount Austin, while the other’s further away in Subang Jaya, Selangor.

Just in case you guys are wondering…yes, the ironic one in Jurong East is no longer there. We missed it as much as you do.

The Jurong East outlet is converted into another type of food: burgers. BIG Burgers
Well, Chicken Up didn’t exactly leave Jurong East alone. No one leaves Jurong East alone because it’s so full of memories.

Instead, they converted it into this.

Yeah, we’re surprised at the size of the burgers, too.

It has been established since 2010
Bet you didn’t expect that, given that Korean Fried Chicken seems to “new”, eh?

And lest you’re not aware, they’re having a one-for-one promotion until 12 November 2017. Click here for more details!

Yeah, you’re welcome.
