Chir Chir - Novel Korean Chicken

Chir Chir (Pronounced as Chi-Reh Chi-Reh) is the latest restaurant to follow the Fried Chicken craze from korea to Singapore. Having already tried various Korean Fried Chicken joints in Singapore, namely 4Fingers, Bonchon and NeNe Chicken, we were eager to see how Chir Chir fairs among its more established peers.

Snow Nest ($32.90)

Snow Nest

We decided to order a portion of the Snow Nest after being recommended by the service staff. The Snow Nest consist of seven to eight pieces of Cajun chicken tenders, atop a generous scoop of sweet potato puree.

The chicken is surrounded by a moat of cream sauce which consisted of bell peppers, broccoli, olives, grated parmesan and cheddar cheese. The novelty of this dish is the topping of whipped cream - which in our opinion, did not add much to the taste.

Without having much expectation, we were pleasantly surprised by the juiciness and texture of the cajun tenders. These tenders were lightly spiced and goes perfectly with the cheesy cream sauce. We enjoyed the Snow Nest and would recommend it for sharing between 2 people.

Garlicky Wings ($28.90)

Garlicky Wings

The signature korean fried chicken wings, coated with a thin batter and deep fried to perfection. These juicy wings are served with bite sized chunks of roasted sweet potatoes and fried tteokbokki (Korean rice cakes).

As a basis for comparison, despite the relatively plump chicken wings, we preferred the 4Fingers rendition of the korean fried chicken wings for their amazing soy sauce coating and better tasting marination.

Macaroni and Cheese ($9.90)

Macaroni and Cheese

Although Chir Chir is a korean fried chicken restaurant, we still had to order a Macaroni and Cheese dish simply because every one loves cheese! We loved the taste of the Mac & Cheese, but the portion is a tad too little for a dish that costs 10$.

Appetizers ($0.50 Each) 


As far as we know, Chir Chir batters and fries their chicken on the spot, right after the order is put through. This might mean a 10-15 minute wait before you would be served your food.

Thankfully, we were served some appetizers to whet our appetites. The pickled radish in particular was refreshingly sweet and crunchy. 

The novelty that Chir Chir brings to the Korean Fried Chicken scene is refreshing. We particularly enjoyed the freshness, tenderness and quality of the chicken used. However, we felt that perhaps the marination and taste, especially for its fried chicken, could still be improved.
