Waker Fried Chicken is a Korean fried chicken chain but it has made its way to Singapore's kopitiams, with the ONLY halal outlet in Tampines.

If you want an authentic taste of Korean fried chicken, this is THE place to go as Waker's marinade is shipped all the way from South Korea! Rest assured, the powder-based marinade contains no meat products or alcohol.

Only fresh chicken is used and it's marinated for 12 hours before it's fried, giving you a flavourful and crispy finish? Try their original or hot and spicy flavours and take your pick from a variety of dipping sauces. Their sauces aren't just limited to traditional soy and Korean sweet & spicy but includes interesting ones like spicy salted egg, lime citrus mayo and even sambal!

If you're up for a gastronomic adventure, their fusion dishes will excite you! Try Emi's Briyani - a healthier version of briyani using Korean multi-grain rice paired with yummy Waker chicken and curry. Bet you never knew briyani and Korean fried chicken would go well together? You can even have a healthier version of nasi lemak.

The best part is, the Waker Chicken at Tampines is run together with Oppa Grill (hence the name Wakerxoppa?) which offers halal steamboat and grill. I mean, with such a brilliant combination, who can resist having two delicious meals together?

The basic hotpot and grill set will cost you just $14 and you can choose from a variety of soup flavours like Korean ginseng chicken and mala. Plus, if you're a big fan of Korean food, you can indulge in their Army Stew or Tteokbokki (Korean rice cake) pot with prices starting from as low as $18! Pretty affordable if you ask me☺️

We're sure your stomach is rumbling just from reading this. So, time to satisfy your Korean food cravings and head to Wakerxoppa with your loved ones for a hearty meal!
