Homely feel and friendly and motherly lady boss makes our day!

Was there on a lazy Sunday armed with HGW recommendation. (Btw Sun op hours is actually from 1-10pm, not 5-10pm as stated in HGW). Truly home-feel to it, cozy with a large projector screen of running man. Ordered the ginseng soup chicken, 3 types of pancake, beef, and 3 flavours fried chicken. To us (a family of 5), all of them really hit the spot except the beef. It's just normal. Pancakes were exceptional and we really enjoyed the soy sauce chicken! Ginseng soup? Excellent. No hint of MSG at all. And to top all this up, is the friendly, down to earth and motherly lady boss. (She's an ex piano teacher btw) Despite her poor English, she strived her best to interact with us and find out how the meal was. Really good service! Will definitely be back again!

Korean Fried Chicken Hideaway

We wanted to love this one – tucked away in basement 2 of Bukit Timah Shopping Centre, among dance schools for children and interior design companies, it has the best service we encountered – the owners are personable and accomodating. The long, brightly-lit restaurant space is a KFC hideaway in a world of its own: K-Pop dramas, running man and music videos are projected on the main wall. But the fried chicken was too floury. We tried the original – we tasted only the thick crust of flour in our mouth; the thick spicy sauce left flour in our mouth; the non-spicy spicy sauce (chilli bits were just for show) – had flour in our... you get it. This is a case of too much flour, too little dry-ish meat. We felt bad they had to go through the trouble of plating all five types of KFC on one ($40.70). Better to order the HGW community recommended ginseng chicken soup (half chicken with rice, $14; full chicken $19).

Yummy fried chicken!

The soypaste soup was really good! I love the fried boneless chicken too! The soy spicy chciken was really quite spicy but very shiok! Korean fried chicken is so different from fast food fried chicken! Very tasty! The food is a little expensive and there is additional 10% service charge! I wish the meal was cheaper. However, I will definitely return to try the other food.

Ordinary food but wonderful service

Please go to http://rollingwrites.blogspot.sg/2012_12_01_archive.html for pictures! 

The lunch set is pretty worth it. $9.90 for a platter of appetisers and a main. 

The appetisers were nothing to shout about. I had never seen macaroni being part of a Korean appetiser before and I felt that the mayonnaise was a little too overpowering. My favourite anchovies were sadly missing from the platter. 

I got the Grilled Chicken Set ($9.90). I  prefer the one at Kim Dae Mun because of the sweeter sauce. Nonetheless, it was quite a generous portion of tender chicken with a bed of beansprouts and cabbage beneath it. 

This was the Sunsal Chicken (Small) ($18) with spicy soy. Although we couldn't really taste the spiciness, the chicken had a very crispy exterior with an addictive sweet sauce over it. To describe how good it was, you had to see the reaction of my two small-sized friends chomping on the deep fried chicken like it was the yummiest thing on earth. 

I suppose the lady serving the food was the lady boss. A motherly figure, she didn't understand much English. But she was still friendly and very helpful. 

Food wise, I think it was pretty ordinary although the Sunsal was quite good. Worth a visit if you are looking for somewhere affordable, chill and has good service.
