5 Spots To Satisfy Your Fried Chicken Cravings

By July 7, 2017Local Life

TL;DR – Our guilty pleasure. 

Every once in a while it’s really okay to have a cheat day,  just so that you can indulge in some juicy, crunchy and satisfyingly greasy fried chicken.

Here are 5 new spots for you to check out!

1. Two Wings

The crispy, golden fried chicken served at Two Wings are made from the Chef’s 40-year old secret family recipe. The chicken wings are first marinated overnight in a premium batter mixture with the addition of fragrant sesame oil and the family’s prized recipe. The following day, the wings are then lovingly and meticulously massaged personally by the Chef to strain the excess marinade off the chicken. As every order of chicken is fried upon ordering, you don’t have to worry about dealing with dry, greasy and soggy chicken. The chicken comes paired with different flavours like the Singapore Chilli Crab and the zesty Salted Egg Yolk sauce which is generously slathered on top of the chicken, and the original Heritage flavour which comes paired with a piquant homemade chicken rice-style chili dipping sauce. There is an extensive menu of a la carte, lunch box and set meal options serving not only fried chicken, but also rice boxes, salads, burgers and more. You could order their a la carte fried chicken option of drumlets and wings which are priced at $8.90 for 6 pieces, $12.90 for 9 pieces, $27.90 for 20 pieces and if you’re feeling exceptionally peckish then you could get a whopping 50 pieces of chicken for $69.90.

2. Black Nut

Black Nut is a gastrobar located in the Emerald Hill Road area built inside of a restored double-storey shophouse. The nondescript entrance to Black Nut may be hidden in plain sight to pedestrians on the street, however they definitely won’t able to miss the two giant handwoven lanterns hanging above the door. The restaurant has an Asian-inspired light bites menu and one of their star dishes would have to be their version of Asian Fried Chicken (AFC). There are 4 flavours to select from and would definitely be a great option for sharing – har cheong kai (cantonese-style shrimp-paste wings), soy lickin good (soy-honey-ginger glazed wings), swicy hot chick (sweet & spicy Korean gochujang paste wings) and not a cock up (deep fried premium pinnacle vodka-infused crispy wings). You can order 4 wings for $12 or 8 wings for $20 and you could their beef or chicken burgers with an Asian-Peranakan twist.

3. Bird Bird Singapore

Bird Bird located on the eastern part of Singapore is a chicken-centric joint that serves quality, artery-clogging dishes. You can get your fill of comfort food with classic dishes like their mac and cheese, curly fries (with a side of cheesy black truffle mayo or spicy Sriracha mayo), salads or even their succulent, milk-braised pork and honey mustard glazed donut. Ultimately, the humble chicken reigns supreme at Bird Bird and you can choose from their original Southern Fried Chicken (which has been brined in aromatic Old Bay Seasoning and immersed in buttermilk to tenderise the meat), served with a thick homemade chicken gravy or their Thai-inspired Bangkok Fried Chicken (which is tossed with a mix of fragrant kaffir lime, lemongrass and garlic). They have two serving portions which is priced as $25 for half a chicken and $49 for a whole chicken. The cool thing about this is that you’ll get to taste and appreciate fried chicken from two completely different cultures without even traveling out!
