I kept seeing people doing mukbang eating corndogs recently and it got me interested in this Korean street food that is still largely unknown in Singapore. According to Google, there are two places where you can get corndogs in Singapore, Gangnam Corndog and WhatThe Corndog. Seeing how popular the post “7 Restaurants to Have Jajangmyeon and Tangsuyuk in Singapore” was, I thought it might be interesting to do another one on corndogs.
Alas, when I reached where WhatThe Corndog is supposed to be at (Tampines MRT), I realised that WhatThe Corndog has already closed down. Even the posts on their Facebook page was lasted dated November 2017.
That means Gangnam Corndog is the only place in Singapore where you can get corndogs. Let’s check it out.
Gangnam Corndog is located at the riverside entrance just beside my favorite Azabu Sabo ice-cream. It is a little hidden from view but that doesn’t stop Singaporeans from flocking to it.
Gangnam Corndog sells corndogs, twist potato, fried chicken, fried dumpling, tteokbokki, cotton candy lightbulb juice and nitro coffee.
Judging from the shop name, Gangnam Corndog specializes in corndogs. Gangnam Hotdog has 4 types of corndogs: Gangnam Corndog, Mozzarella Corndog, Cheddar Corndog and Squid Ink Corndog. This is my first time having corndogs, I got a little too excited and ordered all four different flavors to try.
Gangnam Corndog [S$4.50] is the original corndog where a sausage is coated with a thick layer of cornmeal batter and deep-fried till golden crispy. The outside is crunchy while the inside is soft and slightly stretchy.
I personally feel that there is nothing special about the Mozzarella Corndog [S$4.90], I can’t really taste the mozzarella.
I really liked the Cheddar Corndog [S$4.90]. The cheddar taste is pretty strong and stretchy which makes for great Instagram pictures.
There is nothing special about the Squid Ink Corndog [S$4.90], it’s just plain corndog with some squid ink inside and the end of the sausage split open to resemble squid tentacles.
Gangnam Tteokbokki [S$9.80] has 3 spice levels. It doesn’t look very spicy but this is only spicy level 1 and it’s already mouth-numbing spicy. I like the chewiness of the rice cake but this is definitely not for the faint-hearted.
Lightbulb juice is really just a marketing gimmick, but the twinkling lights and sweet juice does help to put off some of the fire from the tteokbokki . This is Fruit Punch Juice [S$5.90], there is also Mango Juice, Melon Juice, Orange and Raspberry Juice.
