Korean fried chicken is one of the best things in this world. If you haven’t found that out yet then drop by Chicken Up to get the real feeling! I was warned.
This Korean classic is affectionately known as ‘the other KFC’, and so, so much better than its namesake. This alternative KFC is set to take over the world & ever since the broadcast of the well known K-drama – it’s a dish that it’s hard to eat in moderation. Serve it up with the sauces and be prepared to get very sticky fingers.
The succulently moist chicken is covered in golden batter, which is in turn drenched with sweet, salty and sticky chilli sauce. I love the slow-burn warmth of the gochujang in the sauce! This is such a great dish for making a hungry crowd happy. Much agreed.
We had their Original Crispy – RM18 for 4 pieces
Enjoyed the original crunch on our very first bite!
Remember to order their Ganjang Soya Chicken Wings too as I’ve heard that they are very good too!
Yangnyum Chicken Wings & Spicy Yangnyum Chicken Wings – RM18 for 4 pieces
Chicken wings with Korean style sweet chilli sauce.
Fell madly in love with their spicy version as I’m a spicy person. Haha. Get your sticky fingers ready and lick the sauce up. So tasty.
Kimchi Fries – RM26
Generous serving of fries with kimchi, marinated shredded chicken. A great alternative for those who can’t take beef. However, I still prefer the Bulgogi Fries (RM26) myself – fully loaded with thin slices of beef marinated in soy sauce. So good!
Yangpa Bomb – RM18
Crispy golden onion petals. Great snack to go with your drinks.
Seafood and Green Onion Pancake – RM26
Supposing-ly made out of shrimps, squids, onion and chives with Korean batter mix, however this pancake was lacked of seafood. Kudos to the taste but not to the amount of ingredients.
Ugly Tang – RM38
Chicken Up’s unique Korean army stew.
Made up of chicken slices, ham, sausages, kimchi, macaroni, baked beans, cheese & Korean noodles. The portion is large enough to be shared by 3-4 person definitely.
Jabchae – RM18
Stir fried glass noodles with mushroom, pepper, carrots and chives in soy sauce and beef seasoning. Not the best looking Jabchae but it definitely taste good.
Snow Squid Topokki – RM68
Also known as UFO Topokki, it’s a popular Korean street food made with soft rice cake, fish cakes and vegetables seasoned with sweet red chilli sauce then topped with crispy fried whole squid and “snow” cheese – made with grated cheese! This comes together with 5 other side dishes: cheese, kimchi, corn cheese, kimchi fried rice & steamed egg.
You will definitely have the chance to take your most instagrammable photo before the wait staff cuts off the squid and immerse them in the fiery gochujang sauce! You may dip them into the cheese to make it less spicy. I’ve tried and it works. Yum.
Melon Bingsu – RM38
Another must try and best seller on their desserts list!
This bingsu not only looks amazing but tasted great too! They use fresh melon (honeydew) balls carved right out of the melon bowl they serve it in. The melon balls are perfectly ripe and placed nicely on top of the fine milk ice. It gets more milky towards the centre and bottom, so keep digging in!
Oreo Bingsu – RM28
All time favourite oreo just have to be on the list right?
Chicken Up serves a great whole selections of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks that go well with the fried chicken and other dishes.
Watermelon Soju – RM48
Other best-selling cocktails include Sojurita & Beerita (priced at RM48). Great for sharing as the portion is quite huge. But this Papa C can finish one by himself LOL.
Non-alcoholic mocktails include these cute little preparations that were served in lightbulb shaped containers – you can bring them home too!
We had their Calamansi, Blue Lemon, Peanut Butter & Chocolate.
