Not only is Chicken Lab known for their Korean fried chicken, (we'll get to that later ?) one of the must-try dishes is their Crispy Squid Tteokbokki (RM79). Here's your chance to savour deep-fried squid with rice cakes in mouthwatering tteokbokki sauce.

That's not all! It's served in a platter with fried rice, kimchi and cheese sauce - perfect for sharing between 3-4 people. Bet you've never tasted anything like this ?

Of course, we can't leave out Chicken Lab's fried chicken dishes. Spice lovers would love their Spicy Yangnyum Wings (RM20). Soaked in a sweet and spicy sauce, this dish is sure to leave a tingling sensation on your taste buds. For those of you who can't tolerate spice, get their Ganjang Chicken Wings (RM20) which is coated with soy sauce instead ? Pair your fried chicken with their Bulgogi Fries (RM30) for a complete meal!

If you're missing the more traditional Korean dishes just a bit, you can get your fix of those at Chicken Lab too! Take your pick from their selection of Seafood Pancake (RM30), Japchae (stir-fried glass noodles, RM18) or Ginseng Chicken Soup (RM58).

Other than their appetising dishes, another thing that we love about Chicken Lab is their ambience and chic interior. With the use of leafy backdrops and hanging plants, it sure seems like a place that you can hang out with your friends for long. So, if you're heading to JB this coming long weekend and looking for a nice eatery for a hearty meal, head over to Chicken Lab!
