Located near the taxi-stand entrance of Bugis+, this place is fighting for attention with many other restaurants in the same area. There's Yayoiken (http://mediumrareandothers.blogspot.com/2014/09/yayoiken-somerset.html
) just opposite, and the more expensive Ma Maison on the other side. But it had its own specialty that attracted people- their chicken.
The place was slightly under-staffed but we could see that the solo server was trying his best. Kudos to that. As for the food, apparently they've a few branches in many other countries, so they must be good at what they're doing right?
Not so... after having tried their chicken wings. We thought Four Fingers were better. Drumsticks 3pcs- Small ($7.90)Seafood Pancake ($12.90)Wings 8pcs- Medium ($9.90)
I'd give credits to their crispy skins, but that's it. Their drumsticks and wings were not marinated on the inside, and became boring after we moved on to the third piece of wing. Their Seafood Pancake is average as well. Their squid was particularly hard to chew.
I'd not come back again for their wings, after all there's many more of such Korean-styled wings in Singapore for us to try!
Total Score: 1/5[1- Never visit again, 2-Won't visit unless there's no other option, 3-Perhaps, 4 & 5- Yes!]
Good for? Casual dining
