Chicken wings—so versatile, and always incredibly satisfying. In fact, there are just some days where all you want to do is chow down bucketloads of wings. And on those days, these are the places you should visit. Glove up folks, it’s about to get messy.
One of the first few chains to bring the Korean fried chicken craze to Singapore is Chir Chir. Their menu for chicken is pretty extensive, with a substantial variety of flavours to choose from. The Nest Snow is really popular thanks to it being served in a hotplate, and topped with generous chicken chunks, vegetables, mash potato, and finally, a dollop of whipped cream. A little outlandish if you ask us, but it works.
One of the few fried chicken restaurants in Singapore to offer Nashville-style dry rub wings, Halal-friendly Chix Hot Chicken serves seriously spicy chicken that will leave you satisfied but possibly also in tears. If saucy wings are what you prefer, then select the Hot Wings (Hot Sauce) instead, that resembles the popular Korean-style spicy yangnyeom chicken.
Tanjong Pagar’s Kko Kko Na Ra doesn’t just serve tasty Korean mains, but authentic Korean fried chicken too. The Yang Nyum Chicken is a sweet and spicy option, while the fried chicken is essentially your classic, uber deep-fried crispy chicken. All chicken dishes here are served in both wings and drumettes.
Probably the most Instagrammed wings of the lot, Lola’s Cafe’s Honey Paprika Crispy Wings is the dish that put the diner on the map, despite it being just a starter. So head to Simon Road to find out if it’s worth the hype yourself.
This Emerald Hill stalwart is well-known by locals for its prawn paste chicken wings, with some even hailing it as the best place in Singapore to get their har cheong gai fix. And we can definitely vouch that it’s so addictive, we’ve ordered more than just seconds and thirds. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that they’ve got plenty of drinks to pair with the dish.
Yes, Oven & Fried Chicken is another Korean-style fried chicken restaurant, but trust us when we say this Bukit Timah gem is worth the journey to the West. Just try the Crunch Original (Wings) for healthy-ish chicken wings cooked without oil, or the Sauced Soy (Boneless) for Korean fried chicken wings glazed with a mouth-watering soy sauce.
