With so many Korean fried chicken joints around the island, one is certainly spoilt for choice. While I'm not so crazy about those seasoned chicken, I suppose it won't harm trying once in a while. Not far from my house is Oppa Chicken, which has just turned a year old at the point of writing.

Onion Rings S$7.90
That was the first time I ate such interesting onion rings, where the onions where chopped so finely and mixed thoroughly with the batter before being shaped into rings and subsequently deep-fried. They were sweet and chewy alright on the inside, although I'd prefer something crispier.
Japchae Noodle Set with Honey Garlic Chicken S$13.90
Do note that each set comes with a choice of carbohydrate, your preferred chicken and a pretty interesting drink described below. The sweet potato noodle didn't really win my heart as it wasn't as chewy as those I've tried elsewhere, but the honey garlic chicken was finger-licking good with its sweetness and heady aroma.
Butter Garlic Fried Rice Set with Yangnyum Chicken S$13.90
The other set turned out to be the opposite with its yummy source of carbohydrate, but so-so chicken. The fried rice was well-cooked with lots of garlic bits, topped with sesame seeds and spring onions. The chicken, while moist enough, was coated with dark sauce that was too sweet for my liking.
Pomegranate Soda Pop (Set Menu)
What I enjoyed the most was the refreshing pomegranate soda pop with the right degree of fizz and sweetness. It really felt good to wash everything down with such a cold and zesty beverage.
It's said that the owner of the Singapore branch did fly to South Korea herself to acquire the skills and recipes.
