The highly anticipated opening of Korea’s popular BHC Chicken is finally upon us, and we got a first taste at the Singapore menu ahead before it officially launches to the public on 26th April 2023! Read on for some of our hits and misses from Korea’s number 1 fried chicken chain.
Bburinkle Chicken, $23.90
First up, we have to talk about the iconic Bburinkle Chicken (from $23.90), a staple for every mukbanger. To say we had high hopes for this one is an understatement, and we’re happy to report that it didn’t disappoint. For those who have never tried the Bburinkle seasoning before, think of it as a slightly cheesy, ultra umami powder—we’d like this sprinkled on everything, please!
Macho King, from $23.90
Red King Sotteok, $5.90
Bburing Sotteok, $6.90
Bburing Cheese Ball, $6.90
Coming in close second is the Macho King (from $23.90), saucy version of fried chicken coated with a mixture of aged soy and honey. We loved how the chicken remained nice and crisp even after being coated in sauce, and there was just a tiny hint of spice to make it more unique as compared to other basic soy sauce-coated chicken dishes out there. If you like spice, go right ahead and get the Red King (from $23.90), a sweet and spicy coated fried chicken coupled with hot chilli peppers and garlic. The spicy sauce itself is tasty and has plenty of umami, but be warned—it’s pretty darn spicy, so you might want to have a drink on hand!
Retro Chicken, from $21.90
If you’re coming to BHC for the first time, we’d suggest giving the Retro Chicken (from $21.90) a miss (though we love the crispness of the batter, it’s pretty similar to the standard fried chicken you’d expect) and going straight for the signatures instead. Round off the meal with some of BHC’s popular sides, especially their Cheese Ball ($5.90) or Bburing Cheese Sticks ($6.90), both of which contained oozing, hot cheese for some insane cheese pulls. Make sure to eat them while they’re hot!
Kimchi Fried Rice, $9.90
Spicy Rabokki, $12.90
Another unique thing about BHC is that unlike other fried chicken joints that mainly focus on chicken, they also offer an extensive selection of mains. Some of which include Samgyetang ($22.90), Pork Kimchi Stew ($16.90), Fish Congee ($12.90) and more. We tried their Kimchi Fried Rice ($9.90) and Spicy Rabokki ($12.90), and if we’re being honest, they’re pretty standard taste-wise and you can probably get similar or even better renditions elsewhere. We’d much rather stick to BHC’s signature chicken dishes instead!
We’ll definitely be heading back to BHC whenever we’re craving for some Korean fried chicken, as BHC boasts some unique flavours that you won’t find anywhere else in Singapore. Plus, the taste of Singapore’s BHC Chicken is pretty consistent to what you’ll find in Korea, so you know you’re getting the real, authentic taste of Korean fried chicken.
To celebrate their grand opening, BHC Chicken will be having a couple of promotions from 26th April to 7st May 2023. Some highlights include a free Spin & Win for all dine-in customers (1 spin per dine-in receipt) where you stand a chance to win free dishes or exclusive BHC merchandise. You can also get free cheese balls when you purchase any chicken dish on the menu (limited to 2 servings per bill)!
