Super Simple

I’ve discovered a new takeaway lunch place and it’s conveniently located near China Square, which is perfect whenever I attend lunch time services in town. The concept is really similar to the likes of the Daily Cut and Wafuken. Basically, you pick your protein, sides and accompanying sauce.

The differences are often very slight. Chicken Up can be said to be one of the early pioneers of Korean fried chicken in Singapore. It also gets a lot of publicity for having been picked in a Straits Times blind tasting as the best Korean fried chicken.  Continue reading
