We were celebrating a friend’s birthday earlier at Lau Pa Sat after our Bible Study. We had the usual satay and chicken wings, chai tow kueh, or jien etc…
The chicken wing was horrible. It looks so so carcinogenic. (i.e. super chao tar/ burnt) After scraping off the burnt parts, putting it in our mouth, it tasted so bland inside. We decided, the chicken wings stall is slowly deteriorating beyond description. 10 over of us on the table agreed. We need to look for alternatives to chicken wings in lau pa sat. By the way, there’s only one stall selling the honey chicken wings, it’s a monopoly that’s why they are becoming complacent!!!
Momo and I read about this new Filipino Fried Chicken around. Oh, it’s time to go try it! It has all set meals on the menu, but we just wanted chicken to share around. We asked if they sell only chicken pieces. Yes, they do. $2.50 per piece and it will take 15 minutes to prepare. Sure. We ordered, paid and waited.
The chicken comes with this sauce. It taste like the mash potato sauce. If you are a fan of brown sauce, you will like it. No, then skip it.
The few of us thought that the chicken was worth the wait. Hot freshly fried chicken. Crispy outside, juicy inside. The batter was a bit salty, so it was quite appetising. Compared to the wings earlier, this was so much better. They are ok size too.
We ordered 5 pieces. They fried 4 first and had to wait for another one in another deep fryer. So while waiting for the last piece, I took these photos 😉
Another place to have fried chicken if you want something from the regular ‘cooked with 11 herbs and spices brand’. 😉
