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.
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.
Overall, the experience was just ok...nothing to shout about. Service was good but the BBQ meats were not that great. Would I go back again, I doubt it.
It was a nice cozy place that plays a mix of korean and English songs. The food are fairly authentic and yummy!
Long wait time for food. Side dishes were served only after main dish. Kimbap is dry. Doenjang jiggae has kimchi taste. Fried chicken was good as usual.
Nice food and great environment. Should focus more on service as billing took quite some time only 1 person was doing serving. Will be back again :)
The Jjajangmyeon was too diluted, wish the sauce was thicker and more flavourful. The other dishes were alright and I liked the cheese garlic fried chicken.
highly recommended korean restaurant. try the seafood green onion pancake, sundubu tofu seafood soup and saba fish.
ordered fish cake soup, spicy tofu soup, seafood spring onion pancake, pork hot plate for sharing. good!
repeat visit for the authentic korean cuisine. great friendly service. free flow of side dishes. excellent!
repeated visits. tried ginseng chicken. it is good. comes in whole chicken so good for sharing
