Third’s a Charm: Chir Chir’s 3rd outlet @ Chinatown Point opens till 3am EVERYDAY

Following its success in their first outlet at Somerset 313, Chir Chir is rapidly expanding, and now, has its third and newest outlet at Chinatown Point, giving yet another dining option for the working crowd in the area.

What’s so different about this outlet from the rest is their opening hours. Being located just a 5-minute walk away from Clarke Quay, the guys behind Chir Chir has extended the opening hours of this very outlet to 3 AM EVERYDAY. Yes, you heard me right. Now, party goers do not have to keep going back to the same old places for supper, you can now have KOREAN FRIED CHICKEN to sober yourselves up. That, sounds like a perfect plan.

I don’t think the options at Chir Chir requires any more introduction. If you are keen on finding out more and read my long-winded as always reviews, you can check out my previous entry here!

In this post, I’ll be reviewing the items that I’ve missed out previously and also covering on some changes in their dishes!

The outlet at Chinatown point is smaller than the one at 313, however I didn’t see any crazy queues forming when I was there on one of the weekends probably because it’s situated at one of the more ulu exits of the first level – the exit closest to The Central. Photo 20-12-15, 11 56 52 AM

I’d think the menu at Chir Chir has stayed mostly the same, except for a few additions, and tweaks to its recipe.

The Food

1. Nest Snow ($32.90)Photo 20-12-15, 1 31 56 PM My favorite dish from the previous visit has seemed to take a plunge in its quality and taste. I thought it didn’t taste half as good as I remembered it to be. Honestly, I was a little disappointed, because I was really excited to have them again. Photo 20-12-15, 1 32 21 PM
The main change was the switch from the usage of sweet potatoes to mashed potatoes for the base of the Nest Snow instead. That, in my opinion, dealt the greatest blow to the taste of the dish as a whole. It lost the consistency and did not have the sweet-savory combination to it. This plate seemed to be more watery than previously. Me sad.

Nonetheless, the chicken tenders were still has tender and good, it’s Chir Chir, you just can’t fault them for their chickens!

This is a relatively new dish on Chir Chir’s menu, and it was supposedly spicy. However, the one served to us was more of sweet rather than spicy. It was in fact, not spicy at all! I’m not too sure about how this was supposed to taste like really, as I’ve seen reviews claiming that these vampire wings were killer spicy!

3. Macaroni and Cheese ($9.90)Photo 20-12-15, 1 21 48 PM
Our good ol’ mac and cheese. A tad too watery for our liking, but still a very comforting pan of goodness for all cheese lovers. DO NOT SHARE. HAHA!

4. Roasted Chicken

WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW. Why didn’t this dish make an impression on my previous visit? Because this was HANDS DOWN the best chicken dish of the day, of the week and probably OF MY LIFE.

I really loved how fragrant the Garlic Roasted Chicken was, and the meat was SO TENDER and flavorful. I went for seconds, thirds and fourths until there was none. If there is a must order dish at Chir Chir, this would be it, really. I also really loved the toppoki in the spicy chicken one, they should have toppoki in the garlic one too!

Closing Remarks

I’ve enjoyed my experience at Chir Chir, as usual. Who doesn’t? Really. Although there were some misses here and there, perhaps the kitchen at the new outlet may not be exactly familiar with or experienced with the execution of the food. The roasted chicken though, made my entire day. I could just have had that entire plate on my own every day for the week. #truestory

If you’re sick of beating the queues at Somerset 313, perhaps you should travel just a little further to Chinatown Point for your fix. And the best part, we can ALL have chicken for supper now, thanks to the extended hours at Chir Chir at Chinatown Point!
