Say Chimaek! Korean Fried Chicken continues to be widely sought after in Singapore, for their crackly battered skins and juicy meat. Now THIS New Korean Fried Chicken looks set to be the NEXT brand that will get some popularity. 맛있는.

Ssiksin Chicken is located at Serangoon NEX, right next to Korean BBQ Buffet place Daessiksin, sharing space with another Korean bingsu shop Snowman Desserts. Ah, same owners from Korea.

Korean Fried Chicken is generally eaten with families, colleagues and friends in their country, thus you would find mainly big portions of chicken in many of the menus.

The first major change that Ssiksin Chicken took was to offer 2 pieces set, while keeping their 4 pieces and 8 pieces options. Yeah to individuals like me who likes to go eat fried chicken alone (after feeling stressed).

We tried quite a number of dishes – the Original Fried Chicken ($8 for 2 pieces, $15 for 4, $28 for 8), Seasoned Spicy Chicken ($9, $16, $30) and Soy Sauce Chicken ($9, $16, $30). As the restaurant was still new and getting a hang of things, they did take some time for preparation

Ohhhhhhh…… Their Korean Fried Chicken was huge! I mean at least a lot bigger than what I see around here. When the 4 pieces of chicken parts arrived, the drums and wings arrived in this big basket with side radish (The 3 of us looked at each other, “Can finish?”)

From the appearance alone, you would see this hot shattering crunchy crust enveloping the chicken, the type will go “Crrrrrrrrrrr!” when you put in your mouth. After we came back to the chicken after some time, the skin was still rather crispy!

Good stuff. But the real highlight to me was the inside which remained moist and juicy, yet not too greasy – whether it was the drums or wings.

My next favourite was the Spicy Seasoned Chicken ($9 for 2, $16 for 4, $30 for 8) where the chicken was evenly coated with a sticky-salty-spicy sauce specially imported from Korea.

Korean boss came to me earnestly and asked, “Is this the best in Singapore?”

I hesitated a while and was frank enough to tell him, “Almost the best”. I thought about what was lacking – the chickens could fare better with more seasoning, a more flavourful taste.

Wanting to still go a more Korean style, Ssiksin Chicken also offers a variety of dishes suitable for sharing – Hobak Buldka steam pumpkin with spicy chicken ($28), Ohsam pork and squid Bulgogi ($35) and Andong Ggim Dak spicy steam chicken ($28).

From this initial tasting and some online reviews (people are fast man!), Ssiksin Chicken looks set to give its more established competitors a run for their money.

Given some time to fine-tune, they may just take the crown of the best Korean Fried Chicken in Singapore.

  3. I love Korean Fried Chicken for their crispness and spicy hot sauce! Great to share with good friends and colleagues! Used to buy them for my ex-colleagues who are crazy over the wings! Oh, best have the fried chickens with Korean salads. Compliment the heaty stuffs….

  4. Having Korean Fried Chicken always has the sticky-salty-spicy sauce that makes any hot and spicy lovers to go gar gar! And if the sauce is specially imported from Korea….. its a must go! 🙂

  5. No other fast food chain chicken can beat korean fried chicken. From their famous Seasoned Spicy , Soy Sauce Chicken & of course their Original crispy chicken. Korean Fried Chicken is the Best! Definitely goes well with Beer.

    Yum Yum Yum… Craving for it now!

  6. Korean fried chicken is delicious! Savoury with a little heat, their skin is crisp and separated from the meat by a layer of juicy fat.

  7. Because it’s always sold in big portions, which means… good opportunity to round my friends up for a meal and catch up with them 🙂 crispy on the outside, yet so tender and juicy inside (despite being deep fried), Korean fried chicken are best accompaniment to beer, soju, and good friends ;p

  8. Thanks! Always like to read your food reviews & get my friends to go try the eats you recommend. Wow now we are craving for some good Korean fried chicken & K-food!

  9. Korean chicken are usually fried twice, that is why the skin is crunchier and less greasy. They usually use younger chicken, which results in the meat being more tender. That’s why I love it!

  10. I like it cos they have nice crispy skin and the various sauces that were offered with the fried chickens just made them so much tastier…and this is probably one of the fried stuff that is worth the guilt!

  11. Hi Daniel,

    I love fried chicken because it is juicy and yummy! Fried Chicken is one of my favourite and I am kind of addicted to it! Who doesn’t right? Deep fried chicken with crispy skin and moist, juicy, tender meat..

    I dare to say not a lot of people love it as much as i am. Once, I finished eating 20 pieces of korean fried chicken at a go!!!! That’s one of the challenge i did with my friend and I simply love it!!

    I can’t wait to try out Ssiksin Chicken after reading your posts! Hope to win!!

  40. Coated with a layer of crispy skin and tender meat, Korean Fried Chicken is irresistible. Ssiksin Fried chicken looks amazing . Love eating Korean fried chicken as I get to be like one of the pretty korean actress in the drama. Haha! It will be awesome to win the combo to get me & my family’s fingers dirty while digging to a fried chicken feast! Definitely licking my fingers after that meal. #worththecalories

  41. Ssiksin and Chir Chir? Singapore is getting all the good KFC brands now. I must say the portion sizes here at Ssiksin look HUGE, and it’s quite good value too IMO. I will always have a place in my heart for 4 Fingers – although do people view that as American, seeing as it’s an American brand? For true Korean Fried Chicken, possibly Ssiksin will take the mantle!

  42. I Love Korean Fried Chicken because they are more creative in terms of their fried chicken sauce/ coating preparations.

    Korean fried chicken infused modern + traditional together, such as their korean sweet & spicy sauce coating. Now market oso have cheese sauce coatings, recent the salted egg coating etc.. Even their original Korean fried chicken tastes more crispy than the usual Asia brands we have in Singapore.. Most importantly, NOT OILY 🙂

    Thumbs up to Korean Fried Chicken! Masitssoyo!!!

  57. I love Korean fried chicken because they are somehow able to achieve that miraculous state of being crispy, yet tender, yet not too oily. I have no idea how it’s done! Liked and shared 🙂

  58. Just to feedback on my experience in ordering takeaway on a busy Saturday night. First I had to join the long queue for dine in customers. Next I had to join the cashier queue to place my order. I was second in the queue but i was bypassed for the ones behind because they were going to make payment. I had to insist very firmly that they take my order. it was not fair to me if you keep letting people in after me, take their order, clear the cashier queue and then come to me. I kept getting pushed back! Perhaps management could consider proper takeaway order procedures. That said, the chicken was yum. Improve the service and inconsistencies – I heard some wrong orders – and Ssiksin Chicken will be a winner.

  59. I read that Korean Fried Chicken are normally prepared by double frying which help removes the fat from the skin to get a more crunchy exterior. They are then either tossed in, or served with a variety of sauces, mainly of Asian origin like garlic or soy sauce, compared to western ones like BBQ or ranch sauce. The more crunchy exterior gives a really satisfying bite, and then the juicy tender meat beneath will complement the flavourful crispy skin. They are best eaten piping hot. wa, can’t wait to sink my teeth into one now!

  60. KOREAN FRIED CHICKEN IS SO GOOD. with radish and soju and great company! korean fried chicken is the best tasting fried chicken. <3 really happy to know theres now an outlet at NEX! thank you!

  61. Who in the right frame of mind will reject Korean Fried Chicken?
    I love the korean version of fried chicken because of its double frying method, which removes most of the fats but yet still render the meat beneath ever so moist and juicy. The most sinful part of a KFC is also the best part. My favourite will have to be the soy marination.. Its just so savoury and delicious! No words can be used to describe my love for KFC.. I even dreamt of it that night! Cant wait to give this a try.

  62. Korea fried chicken are crispy and less oily compared to what most fast food are offering. Hope that this new offering is good. Hope to try soon

  79. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE korean fried chicken because the skin is cooked to perfect- crispy and light yet it is not greasy (and this is partially because it is served with sides like the pickled radish). Biting into the meat, the meat is juicy and moist. The experience of eating a korean fried chicken, is unlike eating any other ordinary chicken for the former provides a multitude of textures and flavors with the moist, well-marinated chicken meat together with the crispy skin. I also love how korean fried chicken are usually served with a myriad of sauces which provide a uniquely different fried chicken experience with sweet, salty and spicy flavors hitting the roof of your mouth all at the same time.

    What can i say? Korean fried chicken is the best! *drools* 😀
