Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory, 313 Somerset

Yes, so I jumped on Chir Chir's bandwagon and came around for dinner with my friends from jc. I walked past Chir Chir a couple of times since they started business and was always surprised to see a queue of more than 20 people at the door. I was curious about Chir Chir and their fried chicken but was unwilling to brave the long queue for what could essentially just be a hype. So when Eu suggested Chir Chir for dinner and assured us that the fried chicken was awesome, I agreed happily.

We had Mac and Cheese and the grapes salad for starters. My friend found a hair in one of the starters and the service staff replaced both dishes promptly with much apologies. Stellar service definitely. So different from places where I would receive a dirty look for pointing out that there were bits of hair or insects floating around in my food. There was once I told a waitress that my sashimi was sour (!) and she replied "Really? This is fresh you know?".

Garlic Fried Chicken ($26.90) was so yummy! Extremely crispy on the outside yet so tender and juicy within. The marination was perfect too and seeped into the chicken meat evenly. The best part has to be the freshness of the chicken without the taste of frozen meat! This is definitely a must try.

This is the famous Nest Snow ($32.90) that everybody is talking about. A pile of chicken tenders sit prettily on a bed of cheese with sweet potatoes and vegetables. The chicken tenders were quite spicy and the combination with creamy cheese and sweet potato mash was interesting. While this was good, my favourite remains the Garlic Fried Chicken.

Portions are large here so you should come around with friends to share the wonderful fried chicken in Chir Chir. Service is good and attentive and they provide these little clamps for you to hold the fried chicken so that you never have to worry about dirtying your fingers. Very kind thought! The only downside has to be the queue so if you intend to check Chir Chir out, grab a small snack, get in line and be prepared to wait a long while before your fried chicken feast.
