If you haven’t heard of Korean chicken joint CHICKEN UP, it’s high time you did!
It was voted the #1 Korean Fried Chicken in Singapore by RazorTV, which held a blind tasting of 4 well-known fried chicken brands with Straits Times’ Food Editor Tan Hsueh Yun.

CHICKEN UP recently opened its second outlet at Century Square and already many Singaporeans are flocking to it. You'll be won over by their friendly staff and unique decor - shelves of preserved fruits and vegetables, chicken feet marks on the cement floor and multi-coloured wooden tables.
So here’s our introduction on the various, must-try signature dishes.
1. Soya Chicken
If you go to CHICKEN UP, you must try the Soya Chicken wings. Slightly salty and carrying just a light hint of soya sauce, the wings are crispy and great to munch on.
2. Kimchi Fries
If you like cheese fries, you’ll like the restaurant’s Kimchi Fries. With a generous, over-the-top drizzle of cheese, mayonnaise, onions and pickles, the fries had a tangy taste without an overbearing kimchi taste.
The well-loved Korean rice cake is given a seafood twist - cooked in a light, sweet chilli sauce with mussels, fishcakes, squid rings and mozzarella cheese.
4. Yangnum Chicken
Another favourite among customers, the Yangnum Chicken wings is coated with sweet and sour sauce and sesame seeds.
5. Andong Chicken Stew
Reminiscent of Chinese-style sesame oil chicken stew, the Andong Chicken Stew features a light soya sauce stew with chicken bits, toppoki, vermicelli, potatoes and carrots.
6. Melon Bingsu
After tasting all the fried chicken and flavourful dishes, one must definitely end the meal with the refreshing Melon Bingsu. Milk-flavoured shaved ice is placed in the cavity of a honey melon, surrounded by scooped balls of sweet honey melon – perfectly complementing the milky taste of the shaved ice.
CHICKEN UP is located at Century Square, #01-44/45/46/47, 2 Tampines Central 5 Singapore 529509.
