Chicken Up: Raising the Bar for Korean Chicken Dining

Singapore’s No.1 Korean Fried Chicken, Chicken Up, first opened its doors in 2010 at its pioneer branch in Tanjong Pagar in Singapore. Currently, it has six locations in Singapore located at Tanjong Pagar, Tampines, Jurong East, Buangkok, Parkway Parade, Orchard and one in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

In the past Chicken Up has been picked by Tan Hsueh Yun, food editor at Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) Ltd., as the best-tasting Korean Fried Chicken in Singapore from a blind test taste challenge.
Once again, Chicken Up will be taking up another food tasting challenge, this time with The Finder Magazine. We will keep you posted for the result soon.
Indeed, a good and exciting news to all Chicken Up patrons.  Chicken Up has been a home to authentic Korean dishes and the Chicken we all love.
Chicken Up is known for its unique taste due to its preparation. Each chicken part is especially treated to a 12 hours marinating process using the original Chicken Up recipe and then double fried to seal in the flavors. This process ensures that every piece is bursting with succulent juices and tenderness to create a great satisfying taste.

Chicken Up offers a variety of fried chicken such as everybody’s favorite Yangnyum Up and Ganjang Up. Yangnyum Up is a sweet and tangy flavor of chicken that tickles your taste buds and melts in your mouth while Ganjang Up is a garlic-soya based blend of chicken lathered generously with Korean soya sauce before being dipped into the fryer, the sauce is so flavorful you simply can’t get enough of it.

 Aside from the all-time favorite chicken dish customers can also look forward to its Soju drinks.
Chicken Up also boasts a unique range of home-brewed, fruit- infused Soju with thirst-quenching flavors like peach, apple, pear, pineapple and its best-selling variety Watermelon Soju. 

Watermelon Soju is a combination of the #1 distilled beverage in Korea called Soju, and one of the most refreshing fruit, the watermelon.
At Chicken up, the over-all satisfaction always starts with a feast for the eyes, that’s why every Soju is served in a vey appealing way: the water melon can be scraped off from the shell to give a more delightful blend that will not only appeal to your aesthetic sense, but your distinct taste as well.
You can hardly recognize the presence of alcohol in every serving of Watermelon Soju, because of its fruity taste… 

Among the family restaurants in Singapore, it is worth mentioning that Chicken Up has indeed raised its standards as well when it comes to customer service and providing a hundred percent customer satisfaction and convenience; as it offers call-ahead seating, online delivery and a doodling set for dine-in customers, especially to keep the kids (and kids at heart) busy while waiting for their food.
One thing is for sure, at Chicken Up you get an over-all gratifying dining experience that will keep you coming back for more.

  1. 12 hours of marinating? Wow. I’d love to try out this restaurant. Hope they open up a franchise here in the Philippines. 🙂 Or maybe I’d just put it in my must-try list when I go to Singapore.

  2. Chicken dishes make me so so happy!!! I love the ambiance of the place based on your photos. I want to try this restaurant out! I’ll definitely take a note of your blog when I visit Singapore someday! Thank you so much for sharing this. 🙂

  3. I have friends in Singapore, I’ll inform them about this. Anyways, I’m really drooling with the chicken dishes. Can’t wait to be in that restaurant and take photos of the awesome interior! I can also wait for a branch here in Cebu (I wish).

  4. I am sure it tastes so good with the time it had for marinating. I remember my Seoul trip where always eat chicken and beer every night. Lol. Would love to try Watermelon Soju.

  5. There are more and more Korean themed restaurants here opening featuring chicken. One thing all of them have in common is the rediculously small pieces of chicken. I wonder if that is also the case in Chicken Up? Instead of selling me 6 pieces for this price (which is actually a piece of chicken wing cut into half and sold as 2), I would rather be served 2 full and LARGE chicken wings. 🙂

  6. Food looks so gooooood! Hope I’ll get to try this place soon. The watermelon soju looks so intriguing hahaha. Ahh now I’m hungry hehehe.

  7. A lot of businessmen are bringing different authentic restaurants here in the Philippines, I hope they’ll bring this too! The food looks delicious and the serving is generous.

  8. Whoah! Just by looking at the images of the food they offered, I am sure that they all look delish!!! That would be a plus as well knowing that they also provide good customer service – that’s something not so common to many restaurants these days.

  9. tried chicken up twice, once as a paying patron and once for media invite. though they’re really tasty (love their cheese deokbokgi, super yummy!) i still find them a little too pricey, especially their KFC (korean fried chicken). an indulgence (in terms of money) once in a while will be worth the penny and calories though.
