My idea of a diet lasts for about three days every six months. During those three days I’ll be beaming and happy because I’m super proud of my accomplishment… it happened just last week! I went spinning twice, I ordered salad instead of rice when I went out for dinner and I didn’t eat any bread. And I LOVE bread. After those long three days have passed and I feel like I’ve been dieting forever, I crash. And when I crash it’s pretty bad. On this occasion I crashed with a big fat meal at a cool Korean fried chicken joint. It’s called Wing Wing!
In Korea, fried chicken is everywhere and it tastes pretty amazing! I got a proper taste of it at a Korean fast food outlet called Jinjja in Singapore. It was love at first bite and I still think about it till today. So when I heard about Wing Wing, a halal restaurant serving Korean fried chicken in London, I had to go!
THE FOOD AT WING WING
6 SOY GARLIC WINGS (£7.50)
As you bite into one of these shiny glazed wings, you get textures of a perfect wing – a crunchy outside, and a tender inside! The chicken tasted fresh and the soy garlic glaze was delicious. It definitely reminded me of the meal I had in Singapore and I devoured the wings super quickly.
I guess my three day diet was officially over.
SEAWEED FRIES (£2)
We ordered the wings with seaweed fries!
Fries seasoned with garlic powder and crispy seaweed flakes. I wish they had a slight kick to them, but nevertheless they were still addictive!
CHICKEN BURGER (£7.80)
The burger I had in Singapore was insanely good, so I had high hopes for this one!
Unfortunately it didn’t compare, but it was still really good. The chicken was fresh, crispy and seasoned with unique Korean flavours that made it different to the norm! It was topped with pickles, lettuce and a creamy slaw that I really enjoyed. I’d recommend you give it a go!
Overall the bill amounted to £10pp including drinks. Yes it’s more pricey than your local Chicken Cottage, but the fried chicken they offer is not greasy, it’s fresh and of great quality! I would definitely recommend Wing Wing and I think their food is a great addition to the halal food scene. Unfortunately they had run out of baos which I really wanted to try! Imagine a chicken katsu bao, or a peanut and toffee creme bao for dessert! It sounds amazing and it’s definitely an excuse to come back to try it! Bye diet! 😀
