Battle of The KFC Wings: Umadare versus Yang Yeum
August 29, 2015
Loving how innovative KFC is these days!! Not long ago, I tried their new spicy recipe as pictured above. Red in colour and quite spicy especially when paired with their new chilli. Now they have launched chicken wings coated in 2 new, bold flavours!
They are inspired by the rich Japanese and Korean culture that we Singaporeans love so much. Not only are Korea and Japan increasingly popular tourist destinations, ask any local on the streets and they can name you at least one K-pop group or one Japanese dish.
Korean-inspired Yang Yeum wings
Taste: Spicy, smoky and BBQ-like
Think of: K-pop bands, K-dramas and Korean BBQ
Japanese-inspired Umadare wings
Taste: Sweet, tangy and savoury
Think of: Manga, cosplay and sushi
Freshly breaded in-store with a special batter and cooked to crispy perfection! I was very lucky to get to try both flavours at Junction 8 last week. Thanks, Nuffnang and KFC! So which did I like better? 🙂 To be honest, it was difficult having to choose just one!
Umadare for me because I like how well the sweetness of the batter goes with the chicken meat inside. But the Yang Yeum is very tasty too and those who like spicy food will enjoy its sizzling punch! But of course, both are finger-licking good 😉
As you can tell from my dark eye circles and eye bags. I’m sooo drained and tired. Was a crazy workaholic the whole month and I barely had time/energy for anything else. Mostly spent my free time re-reading Harry Potter… at 3am. So that’s not really helping either.
These wings were a good perk-me-up actually. Go try them for yourselves!
