Are you a fan of Korean Fried and Oven Roasted Chicken?
Popular Korean Fried Chicken, Vons Chicken, with more than 150 outlets worldwide (USA, China, Australia etc) since 1989 had opened their first outlet in Singapore at 321 Clementi Ave 3.
Wah, there are more than 20 different types of Korean Fried Chickens here. 20!
The signature dish is their 4pcs Golden Wings – Soy Garlic ($5.40), only available as a fried option.
You can get the other flavours in 2 forms – Fried or Oven Roasted in options of 4pcs Wings & Drums ($5.40), 5 pcs Boneless ($5.90) and 2pcs Drumsticks ($7.20). Set meals with regular fries and drinks at an additional $2.50. Very value-for-money.
To further customise to different customers, there are 4 levels of spiciness: Original, Mild, Hot, Volcano (literally explosive on the tongue).
Wait, let me count… That’s like 1, 2, 3… 24 different combinations!
The chickens used are freshly sourced daily, accounting for its tender and fleshy meat. Each chicken deep fried for 8 minutes to a crispy, golden brown colour before serving.
Our favourite of all is the 4pc Golden Wings ($5.40) with a savoury, sweetish, slightly garlicky (not to the extent of warding off vampires) and yet not greasy.
Finger lickin’ good, ok save the action because disposable gloves are provided for a cleaner eating experience.
“That’s like a Thunder Thigh!” The 2pcs drumsticks ($7.20) are huge, juicy and meaty, possibly longer than the length of a palm.
The recommended Hot Spiciness level is manageable (at least to us) with a sweet and sour taste whereas the Volcano level is indeed quiet fiery hot, peppery with a slight Gochujang (Korean hot pepper paste) aftertaste.
If you are all to the highly-spiced challenge, go for the Volcano.
The oven baked ones taste spicier than their fried chicken counterparts, more flavourful in every bite as it will absorb all the zup (sauce) after the heating process.
Not exaggerating, just like a volcano eruption, we could almost feel our sweat erupting from every single sweat pore on our skin after eating the Volcano spiciness level.
This really excites us. The Singapore local has exclusive flavours not available at other Vons outlets wordwide.
Curry Fried Chicken Rice and Fried Chicken Skin.
Not the usual curry-gui-png (Hokkien for curry chicken rice) style, the former was the marriage between the Indian Curry and Korean Fried Chicken. The spiciness of the curry wasn’t too overpowering and complemented with the fried chicken.
For those looking for small bites, the golden brown crispy Fried Chicken Skin can be pretty addictive, and makes a perfect snack while movie-watching or on-the-go.
To cater to the schools nearby, student meals are available at $4.90 and additional $1.50 for drinks on weekdays from 11.30am to 5.30pm.
If you are looking for affordable and Mashisoyo Korean Fried Chicken in the west, it is time to vroom to Vons Chicken.
