Chicken NeNe in Superior Paya Lebar
Chicken NeNe is a household name, known for its halal-certified Korean fried chicken, burgers and other fast Korean dishes, but its latest outlet in Superior Paya Lebar brings something new to the menu━Korean-inspired pizzas.
With over 1,000 outlets in South Korea alone, and six in Singapore, you could say that NeNe Chicken is the authority on Korean fried chicken. This most recent, however, is the only outlet that serves pizza, cooked in their own pizza oven.
More than that, this new space is almost a replica of NeNe Chicken’s Korean outlets, from the store decor to its location. Set along a row of shophouses, stroll through the bright yellow storefront and you’ll feel exactly like dining at NeNe Chicken Korea!
Prices for personal 9-inch cook-to-order pans start from just $12.90, with toppings including their proprietary Fiery Fried Chicken, grilled unagi and more.
Unlike typical tomato or cream bases, deli meats and the like, NeNe Chicken’s Korean pizza toppings marry the Italian dish with Asian flavors for a unique accompaniment to your next Korean fried chicken meal.
Each thick crust pizza is handmade to order with a full crust━this gives a nice earthy edge to the pie, so you’d be eating healthier without knowing it!
All pizzas are finished with freshly baked Japanese mayonnaise, which lightly melts into the hot pizzas and gives each bite its distinctive flavor.
If you can’t decide between fried chicken and pizza, the Fiery Fried Chicken ($21.90) should be your choice. Boneless chicken tenders are drizzled with an addictively spicy and sweet-sticky sauce, which mayonnaise and cheese have taken over.
Then there is Kimchi ($19.90), generously garnished with the fermented vegetable. It’s especially more indulgent with mayonnaise, especially after the cooking process has accentuated the savory goodness of the kimchi.
Rather than the same old unagi don, consider NeNe Chicken’s Grilled Unagi ($28.90) pizza for a modern take on grilled eel. Alternatively, a child-friendly option is the Chicken Bulgogi ($17.90)topped generously with tender pieces of lightly sweetened chicken.
Another new item exclusive to NeNe Chicken’s Paya Lebar release is Kimchi Pancake ($16). If your favorite kimchijeon is the ultra-crispy kind, this thicker, softer version might not be for you.
It is served with a saucer of sesame seed soy sauce, the salty taste of which brings out the tangy notes of the kimchi.
Of course, there is also the obligation Korean fried chicken which NeNe Chicken is famous for. Chicken parts prices start from $7.50 for two rooms, à la carte, $30.80 for an 18-piece meal, which comes with your choice of two starters, three drinks and two sauces!
Thanks to a secret method of soaking the dough, each piece stays moist and tender inside, with a crust that retains its crunch even when drizzled with sauce. Choose from Double fucking hotthe spiciest option on the menu, Soy Where Spicewhich are the classic options with a touch of warmth, or Smoky barbecue for a non-spicy finish.
Fun fact: all the sauces in the fried chicken here are imported directly from Korea!
