Best Korean fried chicken in Singapore


Nothing quite hits the spot like a fried chicken feast with friends. Crispy, sticky, sweet, and savoury, Korean fried chicken ranks top on the list for many of us. Gather your chingu and head to one of these eateries and restaurants for the best Korean fried chicken in Singapore, including halal options.


1. Waker Chicken


Waker Chicken X Oppa Grill - chicken close up

Waker Chicken is a popular Korean-run fried chicken chain with eight outlets islandwide, mainly in the heartlands. 

Prices start from $13.50 for half chicken (seven pieces) in the Original Crispy flavour. If you don’t mind spending a bit more, get the Honey Butter ($15.50 for half chicken) or Sweet Spicy ($14.50 for half chicken) flavour instead. The chicken is said to be seasoned overnight and fried to order, so you can expect fresh and juicy fried chicken each time. FYI, Waker Chicken is halal-certified!

It comes with your choice of sauce, including Honey Mustard and a fiery Double Freaking Hot sauce for those who love their spice. If you’re going all out, splurge on the Bulgogi Wings and Sticks (18 pieces) or Whole Chicken, both priced at $30.80 each.

The fried chicken is available in flavours including Cheese Sprinkle ($38++ for eight pieces), and their most popular item, Soy Garlic ($28++ for nine pieces) chicken. If you’re big on spicy food, get their Mala or Spicy Soy Garlic.

7. Oven & Fried Chicken

Oven & Fried Chicken has been around in Singapore since 2014. The Korean fried chicken chain coats its meat in rice flour instead of regular wheat flour for a crispier bite. 

There’s the Fried Wings ($21++ for half chicken) and Fried Boneless Thighs ($24++ for half chicken) if you want a classic taste. Otherwise, get the sauced-up versions such as the sweet and spicy Yang Nyeom Chicken (from $23++ for half chicken). The chain also offers baked chicken in the form of Crunch Original (from $20++ for half chicken) and Crunch Yang Nyeom (from $23++ for half chicken), cooked without oil in the oven.

Woorina Korean Restaurant is an under-the-radar eatery in Bukit Timah offering a wide range of Korean mains and sides in a cosy setting.

Their Cheese Fried Chicken (from $20++) features juicy fried chicken coated with cheese for a creamy and savoury finish. It’s also available in boneless form, great for those who hate fuss. The Yum Yum Chicken (from $18++) and Soy Chicken (from $18++) are popular choices as well.

9. BHC Chicken


Korean-Fried-Chicken-bhc-chicken

When BHC Chicken first reached our shores in 2023, expectations for this popular Korean fried chicken brand were sky-high. Thankfully, it seems like Singaporeans have been loving their offerings—in just one year, there are already three outlets across the country. 

A personal recommendation would be the Retro (from $28.90++), which is essentially your classic fried chicken. Simple this dish may be, there’s really not much to complain about—it’s crispy, juicy, and moreish. If you’d like to try their signature chicken, give the adorably named Bburinkle (from $30.90++) a try. This one’s coated in a cheese and vegetable seasoning, giving it a lovely sweet-salty balance of flavours. Else, there’s also the Macho King (from $30.90++) for spice lovers—you get a spicy honey-like sauce that packs quite a punch.

10. 88 Chicken

Another of my favourite on this list is 88 Chicken, a hidden store that’s just a stone’s throw away from Potong Pasir MRT Station.

Regulars visit them time and time again for the Soy Chicken ($20++), which gets you seven pieces. Do note that it’s slightly sweeter than it’s salty, with all seven pieces evenly coated in the viscous sauce. If you prefer the sweetness mellowed down with a bit of spice, try their Yang Nyeom ($20++) as well. You’ll be surprised by how crispy the chicken can be even after being drenched in a sweet-spicy red sauce.

Address: 2 Tai Thong Crescent, #01-24, The Venue Shoppes, Singapore 347836
Opening hours: Tue-Sun 11:30am 2:30pm, 5:30pm to 10:30pm

11. Bonchon

To fried chicken fans, Bonchon may ring a bell as there are currently four branches in Singapore. There’s one in town at Wisma Atria, and it’s a hot spot for those working around the area.

Their Whole Chicken ($36.90++) is ideal for a group of four as it includes six Soy Garlic pieces and another six pieces of Spicy. We recommend pairing this with their Kimchi Fries ($9.90++) coated in spicy and tangy seasoning powder. There’s also the Cheese Ramyeon (from $12.90++) for something more substantial than fries. Even better, you can choose your toppings from Chicken, Beef, and Seafood

12. ICG Chicken & Burger

Korean fried chicken doesn’t always have to be expensive as proven by the wallet-friendly offerings at ICG Chicken & Burger. There are two stalls you can visit: Toa Payoh and Yishun!

With a total of nine flavours to choose from, it can be quite a dilemma to make your order. If you’d like to try something new besides the Original (from $6.90) and Sweet & Spicy (from $8.90), their Creamy Onion (from $8.90) and Jalapeno (from $8.90) are great alternatives. Else, you can play it safe and opt for the Cheese (from $8.90) and Sweet Garlic (from $8.90)

Yishun outlet
Address: 2 Yishun Industrial Street 1, #01-11, Singapore 768159
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 9pm

13. Goobne

Known for their oven-roasted chicken, Goobne is another big name in Korea. Easties are in luck as the only store in Singapore is located at Downtown East in Pasir Ris.

No matter the flavour, there are four types to choose from: Whole, Half, Wings, and Boneless. Of course, there’s the Original priced at $24++ for boneless and $30++ for whole. But since you’re already there, we recommend trying their Deep Cheese, which gives you a fun mix of cheddar, cream, and blue cheese powder. Half a chicken costs $18++, while the wings cost $14++.

Address: 1 Pasir Ris Close, #02-324, Downtown East, Singapore 519599

14. Jade’s Chicken

Hawker stalls specialising in Korean fried chicken are a true gem, and Jade’s Chicken is no different. You can find them either in Hougang or Toa Payoh!

Fans of honey butter can visit them as you can get your hands on the Honey Butter Chicken from just $14.50. Other flavours include Original, Soy, and Sweet Spicy. There’s also the option of changing it up to a tender or fillet, with eight pieces of the flavoured chicken priced at $12, or $11 for the classic fried one. Besides chicken, there are other items on the menu such as the popular Kimchi Fried Rice ($7) and Army Stew ($18).

15. Basasak Chicken

Adding to the list of hawker stalls selling Korean fried chicken is Basasak Chicken near Kovan MRT Station. This stall is helmed by a Korean ahjussi, whom you’ll most likely meet during your visit. 

They serve up a number of less common flavours here, including Hot Curry and Butter Garlic. If you’re a fan of drumsticks like me, I recommend getting the Drumstick Set ($14) comprising three huge pieces of drumsticks and medium-sized fries on the side. Wash down all that grease with the Army Stew ($26.50): you get tofu, kimchi, rice cake, mushrooms, dumplings, chicken sausage, luncheon meat, and noodles. This is perfect for about three to four diners, so bring your friends down and enjoy a hearty supper—they close at 12am or 12:30am every day except Sunday.

Address: 973 Upper Serangoon Road, Singapore 534725
Opening hours: Mon 6pm to 12am, Tue-Thurs 5:30pm to 12am, Fri 5:30pm to 12:30am, Sat 5pm to 12:30am, Sun 5pm to 11pm

16. JINJJA CHICKEN


Korean-Fried-Chicken-jinjja-chicken

JINJJA CHICKEN needs no introduction. This popular halal-certified eatery has seven branches across the country, which probably means you would have come across their store one way or another.

They recently added a new flavour to the menu: K-Mala. There are the must-have Soy Garlic and Yangnyeum, and the daunting Monster meant to be eaten by those who can tolerate spice. Six pieces of the wings are priced at $8.90, while six pieces of drumsticks cost $18.50. If you’re planning a gathering, you can even order up to 100 pieces at $105.90. Choose your preferred carbs from options such as Bulgogi Beef Rice Roll ($9.90), Jjampong ($11.90), and Rabokki ($9.90).
