Tucked in an otherwise ordinary coffee shop in Toa Payoh is Waker Chicken, a Korean food stall that specialises in Korean-style fried chicken.

The stall typically has long queues, and for good reason.

It is said that despite being coated in sauce, their fried chicken still maintains its crisp texture — even if you're ordering it for takeaway.

There are four flavours available:

Original Crispy
