Annyeong Chicken @ Clementi West Street 2 - Korean Cuisine In Coffeeshop Cooked By Korean Chef


Near my hood, there is a Korean stall in a nondescript coffee shop by a Korean-Singapore couple. I am aware of Annyeong Chicken's opening since last year. Still, I procrastinated the visit as the stall has caught the media's attention and attracted long queues every day. The main person behind the cooking is Mr Hong, a Korean who has worked in several Korean restaurants. Unfortunately, the one-person show cannot handle the crowd. As a result, the stall reduced from the original 10 items on the menu to 5 to reduce the waiting time.


Spicy Seafood Noodles 3.5/5

The Spicy Seafood Noodles ($7) comes brimming with seafood such as prawns, mussels and clams in a fiery looking gochujang-based soup. Unfortunately, the soup base is a bit too light for my liking, lacking depth to justify the chewy Korean egg noodles.


Jajangmyeon 4.5/5

Compare to the Spicy Seafood Noodles, the Noodles in Black Bean Sauce ($7) fares much better. The bowl of noodles is loaded with sweet onions and minced meat. Each mouthful is slurping goodness. The addition of julienne cucumber gives it a refreshing and delightful texture bite.

Seafood Pancake 4.5/5

I usually do not order pancakes from Korean restaurants because they are huge. I probably only have a slice or two. Most versions are doughy, but the Seafood Pancake ($12) here is light and crispy. I applauded the chef for adding an egg to the pancake; the enhanced aroma felt like have our local carrot cake. Surprisingly, I finished the whole plate.


Overall, I have enjoyed the food at Annyeong Chicken. I would go back to try its Tornado Kimchi Fried Rice as it was sold out during my visit. I should also try its Korean Fried Chicken which seems quite popular among the diners. As it is a one-person show cooking behind the stall, diners have to be prepared to wait.
