New Dishes Launched Today at Chir Chir Singapore!


I can safely say that from the first day that Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory opened its doors at 313@Somerset last year, the restaurant has been very well-received by Singaporeans. What is there not to like about it? They only use fresh chicken and fry the chicken only upon order. Also, all its sauces are imported from Seoul to ensure that taste is consistent across all their outlets worldwide. Hence, it is no wonder that Chir Chir has branched out quickly and now has a third outlet at Chinatown Point.

To keep its menu updated, Chir Chir has decided to expand its menu to include new items like Honey Butter Chicken, seafood dishes and ice-blended slushies. All of which will be available today!


Raspberry Double Smoothie and Mojito Double Smoothie ($12.90 each, additional $3 for soju). Ice-blended mango puree topped with raspberry and lime slushes respectively. Then a swirl of freshly whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles for a perfect finish. There is a third Double Smoothie that we did not manage to try and that is Aqua Double Smoothie which comes with tropical fruit slush.


Topokki & Cheese ($9.90). Korean rice cakes, creamy cheese sauce, chicken ham and bacon bits. This dish is created in Singapore! Yes, unlike the other dishes which are brought over from the menu in Korea, this dish was proposed by the owners of the Singapore franchise. I always find ham and cheese to be a classic and comforting combination.

Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory at 313@Somerset (Media Tasting)

Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory has opened its flagship outlet in Singapore at 313@Somerset. It is one of the largest chimaek  (chicken and beer) franchises in South Korea, with over 100 outlets across Korea, China and Taiwan. ‘Chir Chir’ is pronounced as chi-ruh chi-ruh and it gets its name from the bubbling sound that oil mix when the chicken hits the deep-fryer.

Chir Cream Beer ($13.90 for 350ml). Draught beer topped with freshly whipped cream. This story behind this drink is popular Korean drama Secret Garden’s latte where the main character got foam on the lips which led to a kiss.

Non-Alcoholic Passion Yellow Tok! Tok! ($14.90 per jug). Fizzy flavoured passionfruit mocktail that can be turned into a cocktail with the addition of soju for additional $4. The drink is also really cool as an iSi soda charger is used to fizz the drinks up at the tableside before it is served.

Chicken Up (Media Tasting)


My friend, Seth, invited me for a media tasting at Chicken Up, a Korean Fried Chicken (yes, that is what the KFC stands for) restaurant at Tanjong Katong. It is situated right next to the famous 2D1N Soju Bang Korean BBQ.



The interior is of various shades of yellow and red, and for all you K-pop fans, there is a TV playing K-pop music videos continuously. As for those of you who do not appreciate such music, do not worry, it is neither deafening, nor is it exasperating.
