Dakga @ Duxton Road - First And Only Chicken-Centric Korean Barbecue Restaurant In Singapore


Dakga at Duxton Road is Singapore's first and only chicken-centric Korean barbecue restaurant. Unlike other Korean barbecue places, Dakga offers farm-fresh chicken straight from the coop to the table. You can also enjoy different parts of the poultry on the grill.

Chicken Heart and Gizzard

I am a fan of chicken innards, so I am glad I can get Chicken Heart ($13/100g) and Gizzard ($13/120g) at Dakga. It is also the first time having them on the grill.

Chicken Oyster

One of the juiciest parts of the chicken is the Chicken Oyster ($24 for 6pc). It is considered one of the tastiest parts of the chicken, just behind near the thigh area.

Boneless Neck Meat

The most prized cut of the chicken has to be the Boneless Neck Meat ($28 for 150g). Unfortunately, only limited qualities are available each day. As you can imagine, a chicken only has a neck, and there is not a lot of meat around. After grilling, it has a delightfu l crunchy texture.


Marinated Bone in Thigh ($28 for 400g)

Another favourite among the different cuts of the chicken is the Marinated Bone In Thigh ($28 for 400g). It is marinated in a house-blend seasoning, lifting the taste profile.

  Kimchi Pancake 3/5

There are several sides to complement the barbeque experience, each carefully crafted to match the flavour of the chicken. Firing up the appetite is the sour and spicy Kimchi Pancake ($16), which is a bit too doughy for my liking.

Curry Fried Chicken 4/5

The Curry Fried Chicken ($22 for 3 pc) is a delightful side seasoned with curry powder and coated in crisp. I recommend dunking this into the cheese fondue for accentuated enjoyment.

Old School Lunch Box 4.5/5

If you are still not full, you can fill up with the Old School Lunch Box ($10) which consists of fluffy rice, Korean chicken spam, sunny side up, myeoichi-bokkeum (stir-fried anchoivies) and kimchi. You can suppose to close the lid and give it a good shake to mix everything together.


Dakga takes pride in capturing that same simple and comforting element of Korean dining by reinventing dakgalbi in its unique interpretation – through prized chicken offerings and colourful sides for an authentic Korean chicken BBQ experience. In addition, diners get free cheese fondue with nachos/tortillas with $50 minimum spend on food.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
