Late last year, we also welcomed the opening of Nene Chicken’s newest outlet. Still up and growing, Nene Chicken now has more than six outlets spread all over the city. Their newest popped up right at the heart of Nex Mall.This new outlet is fascinating because it has a unique concept as compared to its predecessors. The outlet follows a tiered layout, resembling steps overlooking the “Han river”.Of course in light of the lack of an actual view of a river, they have set up a projector instead to entertain customers with cheerful music videos and shows.Accompanying their newest outlet, Nene Chicken has also re-introduced its Green Onion sauce. Equipped with a revamped recipe and newly halal certified, the Green Onion recipe is adapted for all of us to enjoy!
