Chick N Ken is located at 21 Lorong Telok, around Raffles Place. It is very close to the Dojo Burger Restaurant for those who know. And it is pretty easy to locate especially for those who know Le Comptior. It is to the right when you are facing Le Comptior.
The word “Chick N Ken” seems to me is a word that has been broken up from “Chicken”. That’s my impression.
Chick N Ken has a very simple design with wooden table and chair and warm lighting. It wasn’t very good for photo taking.
Beside the limited Ala Carte Menu they have a Set Lunch Menu. In it mainly, the Korean Fried Chicken Wings with three flavours, 2 Korean Flavours and 1 Local Flavour (Salted Egg). I drool upon seeing the word Salted Egg. I simply can’t wait to eat it. And they have Pat Bingsu and some sides and also beverages.
I ordered a 8 pieces Fried Chicken Wings with 2 flavours – Salted Egg and Ganjang and a Fried Ddeokbok for take away.
Despite it was after about 10 minutes of walking from the outlet to my home, the Chicken Wings were still crispy and warm. Both my bro and I, we like the Ganjang Chicken more than the Salted Egg as the Salted Egg Sauce was not strong enough to be coated on the wings and drumlet.
Everyone of us, enjoyed the Fried Ddeokbok. There were 4 sticks; each with five pieces of about rice cake with chopped peanut sprinkled on it. It was appetising, sweet and spicy, soft and chewy. The only feedback came from my bro, that it was not spicy enough and the stick that he had did not have enough peanuts.
As I have been craving for Pat Bingsu for some time, when seeing it on the menu encouraged me to order one. This round, I ordered the Classic Injeolmi Pat Bingsu among the 5 flavours. The others were Matcha which I usually go for; Cha-Yen, Thai Milk Tea flavour, which I want to try next; Chocolate and Watermelon & Berries.
In the Classic Injeolmi, there were roasted Soy Bean Powder, Honeyed Corn Flakes, Ricecakes and Red Bean. Condensed Milk were separated in the Syringe, in case you need it to be sweeter. The shaved ice was reasonably fine, though may not be as fine as the one offered in Nunsongyee. I thought it was good enough. Personally, I find it pretty sweet even without the condensed milk. But at least, there were soy bean packed among the shaved ice and that was good. Importantly, the ingredients were enough to accompany the shaved ice so each mouth beside the ice, you get some munch as well.
I did another took away for the Ganjang & Yangnyeom Chicken. The Ganjang has the sauce similar to the rice cake (Fried Ddeokbok).
The Fried Mushroom is very left to its natural taste with some salt and seaweed sprinkle over the dish.
In conclusion, the preference of the chicken is very much indivdual liking. Each of us in the family has a different favourite.
Cha-Yen Bingsu will be my next target. Lol!
