Another trip, another dinner in the airport. This was just before a short holiday to China, we decided to have lunch before we board the plane. Princess picked the shop because of the cute looking chicken in the logo.

꼬꼬나라 Kko Kko Na Ra
Specialising in KFC (Korean Fried Chicken, not the American fast food chain), Kko Kko Nara (meaning “cock” in Korean) is one of the pioneering restaurants to bring the Korean fried chicken trend to the sunny shores of Singapore. Unlike the usual fried chicken that you find in fast food chains, Kko Kko Nara’s KFC is crunchy, spicy and perfectly non-greasy. But today, it’s not about the fried chicken
Bulgogi Rice Set
The portion of the bulgogi beef was really small, but it came with a serving of banchan (side dishes) that can be replenished. It was the kimchi that was absolutely delicious – just the right amount of spice and saltiness.
dolsot bibimbap | hot stone pot bibimbap
The vegetable bibimbap (mixed rice) was served with a lukewarm dolsot (hot stone pot), quite disappointed as I liked the burnt rice at the bottom, so we would not get any. It was mixed with gochujang (spicy pepper sauce), but I had to ask for extra sauce.
bu chu jun | Korean leek and squid, vegetable, pancake
The bu chu jun was crispy and filled with the scent from the scallions. Bits of squid can be tasted in the flat pancake, but it was the scallions that made up the flavours.
soon du bu jungol | spicy beancurd soup
The soon du bu jungol was a watery affair with very mild (perhaps weak for some) taste of bean paste. Could pack more oomph.
Service was so-so and food so-so.
