Let's take a break with the throwback series, and live the moment. ✌😊

☝ that was the first time i tried 소주 (soju) tho it wasn't like soju-only soju. Now that i tried, i quite understand why people tend to make that "kkkhaaah" sound after each sip. [ifyouknowwhatimean] 😁
They will open a new bottle of soju in front of you and pour the entire thing into the watermelon-bowl. And for those of you who don't really drink, but wanted to try soju [since it's so popular!] I think this one is quite safe. Can barely taste the soju, but it's still one. 😂

Ps: it's definitely a share-able portion..!
Pps: pardon my phone cam. It wasn't that bright.! 🙈

🍉 Watermelon Soju
💰 S$38
🏠 Chiken Up [@chickenupsg]
📍 had ours at Century Square, Tampines Central

Located on the first floor of Century Square, Chicken Up serves Korean fried chicken and superb bar snacks, and is great for a casual meal with friends. Aside from their finger-licking good YangNyum Chicken Wings ($12 for four), what you should really be coming for are the Bulgogi Fries ($12). Buried below the nest of golden fries are tender, bite-sized soy marinated beef, ready to be mopped up by the nicely browned frites. To seal the deal, the heaping pile is then topped with a generous amount of mayonnaise and onions. Feeling thirsty? Order a Watermelon Soju ($38) — an enormous halved watermelon filled to the brim with watermelon juice and soju — to share. Daebak!

Love the fried chicken and bulgolgi fries!! The fried onions matched well with the special made dipping sauce. Do not forget the peach soju too!

The buffet was not about the awesome soy chicken but the free flow beer mixed witb soju.

"Woahhh" went my mom when the pretty mountain of stacked shaved iced, melon balls & a scoop of creamy vanilla ice-cream came towards our way. While it's instagram-worthy, this Melon Bingsu ($20++) is definitely loaded with tons of sugar. Be prepared to gulp tons of water!

Too much of over-fried chicken, dry chicken breasts, thick batter that was not cooked through or so much so that it ridiculously wraps around the chicken like a dough in a dough, in a dough, in a dough…there’s this lil chicken – crap! No such nonsense in Chicken Up.

Perfect golden brown crispy fried chicken, slightly spicy, sweet, juicy, and not heavily coated with batter.

Be prepared to set a whole new expectations for fried chicken, so evenly coated, crispy and juicy in every part of the chicken! Yes! Even the chicken breasts are cooked through evenly and still moist. They also only fry upon order, so be prepared to wait awhile while they carefully prepare your order.

I love fried chicken with a hint of spiciness and this had been done so damn right. Nothing too spicy that it starts to burn you and stops you from eating further while it’s still piping hot especially. You just keep going on, and on, and on…until you realised it’s wiped clean to the bones. You’ll be sucking your fingers to get just a lil bit more of those chicken juices or even licking your plates……but then, now, fret not! They serve buffet now and c’mon, just order another piece of chicken – you know it’s gonna worth every count of calorie.

They are pretty packed now, unlike years ago when I visit, there’s usually only perhaps two tables occupied on a normal weekday dinner/supper time, so make your reservations!
