A new Korean franchise has made its way here and Chir Chir (pronounced chiru chiru) is already on my list of places to go to satisfy my craving for fried chicken.
The Fried Chicken ($26.90) is really good, with a crisp golden batter covering moist chicken meat that tastes good without the need for the dipping sauce that comes with it.
The only problem is that it comes in only one size - an entire chicken, which is enough for two persons provided you do not order anything else.
If you want to taste the eatery's other offerings, such as Honey Grape Salad ($18.90), you would need to go in a bigger group. Every dish on the menu comes in just one size - large.
There are many other variations of fried and roasted chicken, such as Spicy Chicken ($28.90) and Garlic Roasted Chicken ($32.90).
There is also the unusual Nest Snow ($32.90), where fried chicken tenders are placed on a baked cream sauce and topped with whipped cream. That, however, is a bit too strange for me.
Where: Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory, B3-04/06 313@Somerset, 313 Orchard Road MRT: Somerset Open: 10am - 10pm (Sun - Thu), 10am - 11pm (Fri & Sat)
