A sneak peak into Chir Chir’s newest menu earlier this week got me hooked on their Pineapple Smoothie cause the heat was on! For those who love more fire in their food, their Spicy Jjimdak ($19.90 for half chicken/ $32.90 for whole chicken) features a lip-smacking spicy soy-based sauce, chewy jjolmyeon (Korean wheat noodles), topokki (rice cake) and a small mount of crunchy beansprouts. The star being the thinly battered chicken simmering in the stew - tender and juicy.
Huge in portion and great for sharing, the seasoned and simmered chicken dish was not just red-hot but pleasantlysavoury and mildly sweet with the mix of BBQ sauces; giving it a somewhat complex flavour that was both potentially addictive and comforting if my tastebuds could handle that amount of spice. Not numbing but certainly lingering, the slow yet fiery kick should come with a warning as what was causing the burning was the addition of sliced red chillies and capsaicin sauce.
However, there was no stopping us, as we got to the bottom we noticed that the usual translucent glass noodles used was modified with Korean wheat noodles in their rendition. With more bite to it, the noodles manage to soak up all the goodness, reminding @okwhotookmyusername of the infamous Samyang Spicy Korean Noodle. Too shiok to handle, it would be perfect with a bowl of hot steamed rice and I guess I will stick to the non-spicy version for my next visit.
Many thanks to @chirchirsg and @sixthsensepr for feeding us, and @burpple for the invitation!
