Korean Corn Dogs are a type of K-street food (oh gosh, how I miss Myeongdong) made from either sausage, mozzarella cheese, or a combination of the two.

An icon of Korean street food, Corn Dogs has also garnered popularity in Singapore with the rise of Korean shows – one thing you would find more on your TikTok feed with the many kiosks opening up here. Though this outlet CHUNZ hails from Malaysia, not Korea.

The first Singapore outlet of CHUNZ opened its doors along GR.ID, which is about 8-10 minutes’ walk from Dhoby Ghaut MRT.

CHUNZ aims to offer a wide variety of options for customers, and use only Halal-certified ingredients (they are pending Halal certification).

According to its website, CHUNZ franchise has 18 outlets established across Malaysia to date.

Enter through the doors along Selegie Road (there’s no entrance from within the shopping centre) and you would find yourself in the 4-seater shop. No space to sit, so probably have to dabao.

There is a show kitchen to see your orders being prepared (okay fresh + Instagram Story worthy), after you placed an order at the cashier counter.

The popularity of CHUNZ or corndogs shows even at 3pm, with dining in seats filling up fast, and many young customers joining the queue for takeaways too – perhaps attributed by being near to a number of schools.

Here at CHUNZ, there are 5 Corn Dog types, with the signature being The OG ($4.90 Ala Carte, $7.90 with drink) filled with black pepper sausage.

There are also the Cheddar wrapped in cheddar cheese ($5.90 Ala Carte, $8.90 with drink), Mozza – half mozzarella cheese and half black pepper sausage ($5.90 Ala Carte, $8.90 with drink), Mozza Mania – block of mozzarella cheese ($6.50 Ala Carte, $9.50 with drink), and Mozza Cheddar – half mozzarella and half cheddar cheese ($6.50 Ala Carte, $9.50 with drink).

They would be coated in batter and bread crumbs.

But you could add on additional topping of Potato Cubes or Instant Noodles for $1. Sauces are complimentary – Chili, Mayonnaise, Korean BBQ, Ketchup, Sugar, and premium top ups are Cheese Sauce ($1) and Spicy Korean ($1).

The thick doughy batter was wrapped around a chosen filling, and crusted with bread crumbs or topping of choice before placed into a deep fryer.

The Mozza ($5.90) drizzled with Spicy Korean Sauce (additional $1) had a top-half of mozzarella cheese and lower half black pepper sausage.

Do not take too long with photos to enjoy the cheese pull on this one.

I found the batter to be cooked to a crisp, and with right temperature oil, as it came out neither too greasy nor oily.

The sauce was not too sweet and just of a pleasant heat, with spicy level lower than the Korean fire noodle sauce standard. It went well with the savouriness of the mozzarella and chicken sausage.

The Cheddar ($5.90) with Potato Cubes (additional $1) and Cheese Sauce (additional $1) had black pepper chicken sausage wrapped with cheddar.

Thankfully, the sausage was not too dry and didn’t taste very processed like some other versions of corndogs. Opps!

However the batter probably required further cooking as the inner batter was not that fully cooked. Understandably it was a thicker batter to fry, however it was a shame as it made the cheddar part pretty unpalatable.

Drinks on the menu are the Merry Berry, Passion Clio, and Pink Grapefruit-Lychee ($5 for Ala Carte).

They also offer a Mystery Drink flavour (back to the Anything, Whatever days), for those who love a bit of adventure in their day.

I tried the Passion Clio which was a pleasant accompaniment to the corndogs. The citrusy refreshing drink helped cut through the oiliness of food and was not too concentrated.

For the next time, I may just go back for its classic Corndogs, while skipping the additional toppings.
