NeNe Chicken is officially ready to open its doors to the public, and Dished Vancouver headed inside to check out the crispy-fried situation before it did.

The new 1070 Kingsway eatery is the first location in North American for the famous South Korean chain.

Slated to open Wednesday, April 21, folks who head to check out NeNe’s offerings will find a menu of seven varieties of fried chicken including Original, Swicy (sweet and spicy), Freaking Hot, Snowing Cheese, Snowing Chilli, Soy Garlic, and Green Onion Chicken in both original and garlic varieties.

All chicken except the Green Onion can be ordered in full or half orders, and everything can be made into a wing, drumstick, or a boneless chicken order as well.

In addition to this, five different chicken burgers unique to the Vancouver store will be on the menu too, alongside sides such as Shack-Shack fries complete with add-and-shake-it-yourself cheese powder, pickled radish, coleslaw, and bottled sodas and teas.

The takeout boxes from NeNe are like none that you’ve seen before, they are designed to keep your chicken hot and not soggy, and have everything you need from a space for a drink and sides to handy finger gloves and wet wipes.

The Vancouver location will launch in-person orders for takeout to start. Eventually, NeNe will accept pre-orders for pickup online, and down the line, delivery will be an option as well.

NeNe is an international chain with locations across the globe, including in Japan, Singapore, Australia, and of course, Korea.

This brand, which was founded in 1999, is known for serving up chicken made with its secret battered dipping process that keeps the chicken juicy and the batter crispy.

It has a huge following thanks to its high-quality ingredients and cooking methods, which includes a special marinating machine for the chicken, which is always delivered fresh daily and never frozen.
