About Woorinara

Korean food in Singapore is always a delight, and there are plenty of different methods in which you can enjoy the food from below the 38th Parallel. Whether your tastes are for the hearty fare of bibimbap and bindaetteok to sharing favourites like Korean barbecue and banchans, teas like Korean ginseng – Woorinara is the only restaurant in Singapore that sells it – and the sweet treats of bingsu and injeolmi. One lesser spotted, but equally as tasty, is Korean fried chicken, unbattered but double dunked in hot oil, to ensure a skin that is crispy but not greasy, and then coated in sauces that range from salty to sour and sweet and unbelievably, mouth-meltingly spicy. Woorinara on Lorong Kilat in Bukit Timah is the perfect place to pick some up in the north of the city, so if you’re looking for the best Korean fried chicken in Singapore, then look no further. Book a table now and head on over to try out something new.

Further Information

Asian food in Singapore is characterised by the coming together of sweet and sour, salty and spicy, and whether you take your brimstone from pho, Sichuan peppercorns, Thai bird’s eye chillies or the nasal passage clearing wasabi from Japan, you can find fire that fills up your soul. If, indeed, Seoul food is what you’re after, then you need to be taking their spice test. One of the great ways to deliver chillies to your mouth in Singapore is via Korean fried chicken, and one of the finest places to pick it up in the city is at Woorinara on Lorong Kilat in Bukit Timah. Take the MTR train to King Albert Park and wander up the hill to try them out – let us talk you through some of the specialities that they offer.

While the fried chicken on offer is the obvious option, the sauces are where Woorinara comes into its own. They take their chicken from the fryer and toss them liberally in a sweet and spicy yumyum sauce, soy sauce or garlic sauce to your choice of heat, with your pick of bone in or boneless bird. There are other Korean classics on offer as well, from bibimbap to Korean barbecue, hot plate chicken or pork, smoked duck or kimchi pancake. Did we mention that Woorinara is the only restaurant in Singapore that sells Korean ginseng? We could go on, but we’ll not delay your trip to Lorong Kilat and Woorinara. Reserve your table now.

The food was delicious. We ordered quite a number of dishes such as chicken, sam gye tang and sun du bu jji gae. The dishes also came along with some side dishes. The service was good and the food did not take very long time to be served.

Arrived late by 30min after the timing stated on the reservation, the lady owner who served us wasn't mad at us (we also apologised). She was very helpful, we ordered Budae Jigae (Army Stew) which was served on a portable gas stove, so the fire had to be adjusted every once in a while to either warm or boil the stew. She helped adjust the fire when she walked past my table (about 3 times) while serving others, and I also noticed her helping tables who ordered the BBQ to grill and cut the meat pieces. Overall, food is good, ambiance is good, pricing is good, service is good, I would visit again to try some of the other dishes :)

The place was rather cosy. I tried the budae jigae and seafood-kimchi pancake. The pancake had a good portion of seafood and was nicely crisped, Budae jigae was awesome (especially since it was raining). Variety of side dishes 🖒🖒🖒 Will I visit again? Yes.

The service was reasonably satisfactory, given the full house situation. Good was relatively good. The spicy beef stew was commendable. The kimchi pancake was slightly oil and the sweet/spicy chicken was not exactly mind blowing. The price was reasonable for the quantity.

Yum yum chicken (spicy) is nice. Seafood and kimchi pancake is also highly recommended. We also ordered the BBQ pork set with spicy tofu soup . However, the BBQ pork was a bit too dry and the tofu soup was so-so.
