A plate of fried chicken is one of the most comforting foods to tuck into after a long hard day, and the only thing you’re missing is a chilled mug of beer or a cup of bourbon. Whether it’s deep fried chicken or the sweet soy sauce that Koreans love drizzling their chicken in, the meaty dish is a perfect meal or snack at any time of day.
Alas, Chicken Up’s all you can eat and drink chicken and beer buffet promotion is no longer around. For those who really, really love chicken, here are a couple of places with some of the best chicken in town to sink your teeth into all that greasy goodness. You’re welcome.
The Bird Southern Table & Bar
The only way to really combat the Monday blues is with The Bird’s All-You-Can-Eat Mondays where you can stuff your face with unlimited servings of fried chicken. The Southern bar from America is famous for its chicken and waffles, which also comes with a side of spiced watermelon that is probably the best combination ever. The tender, juicy chicken is brined for 27 hours, which keeps the chicken full of flavour without drying it out.
The only downside is that the free flow part only applies to Lewellyn’s Fine Fried Chicken, and you’ll have to add-on sides like fries and waffles separately. If it’s your first time at The Bird, definitely get the waffles which are infused with cheddar cheese. But for $28++ and some of the best fried chicken in town, you won’t be disappointed.

If you want a little more variety of chicken, you can hit up The Beast. The ala carte buffet includes free flow portions of their famous Southern Fried Chicken and another Chicken flavour of the week! The secret to their fried chicken lies in their buttermilk marinade, and comes with a side of bourbon maple syrup. The buffet also comes with unlimited cornbread, sides and dessert, all for just $25++.
On a side note, their cornbread which is served fresh from the oven is really to die for. Wash all the fried stuff down with a good cup of bourbon by making use of their $7 happy hour drinks, Southern style!
$25++ for All You Can Eat Chicken Tuesdays at The Beast (17 Jln Klapa, S199329)
It’s not enough just having free flow chicken nowadays. Seoul Kitchen serves up free flow fried chicken, Korean style in three different flavours – normal, Korean Spicy Chicken, and Korean sweet soy chicken. And for $19.90, you get all the chicken that you can stuff into your mouth, PLUS two sides of your choice AND all the kimchi and banchan to make it a well-rounded meal.
You can pick two sides from a menu – either kimchi soup, bean paste soup, or seafood tofu soup, and another side like stir fried noodle, fried dumpling or spicy rice cake. If you’re a bottomless pit when it comes to Korean food, you can top up an additional $8 for an extra seafood pancake, kimchi pancake or rice ball with seaweed. Probably one of the best deals around town, and worth making the trip to Yishun for!
$19.90 including 2 sides, $27.90 for 3 sides, at Seoul Kitchen (435 Sembawang Road S758398)
GoroGoro might be well known for their steamboat buffets, but also included in your buffet price is freshly fried chicken! GoroGoro’s signature Korean Chicken Wings disappear almost as fast as they are replenished, so you’ll have to keep an eye on the counter. The sweet soy wings are crisp to the bite, and is one of the various cooked food options in the “Korean Buffet” section, which includes other Korean dishes like japchae.
From $13.90++ to $28.90++ for the Steamboat and Korean Buffet at GoroGoro (#04-01, orchardgateway@emerald)
