[Tasting, Halal] Nene Chicken finally has added their own version of the Budae Jjigae (aka Korean Army Stew) to their arsenal of Korean comfort food items! I had the opportunity of trying it with some Burpplers the other day, and it’s safe to say that this was pretty decent.

They’ve played it safe with the execution here by keeping things as authentic to the original idea as possible. Nothing boujee, nothing fancy – in fact, it retains the classic soul-warming instant food feel with ingredients like thick instant noodles, chicken luncheon meat, chicken sausage, rice cakes and tofu. I must mention a salient point though - this stew wasn’t as spicy as I’d expected. I’m not the most tolerant of spicy foods, so imagine my surprise and excitement upon realising I was able get past the 6th spoonful?! πŸ˜‚πŸ€€ Of course, I eventually succumbed to it when I had a brainburn (opppsite of brainfreeze) moment towards the end of the tasting hahaha.

Anyway, their army stew is only available at three outlets: Hougang Mall, Bukit Panjang Plaza and Junction 9 (come 22 Feb). Nene Chicken is MUIS Halal-Certified, so there’s one more place for you and your Muslim pals to get your fix of this iconic Korean dish! 🀩 (7.3/10)
