Richly sweet and garlicky spiciness generously glazes the meaty chunks of this Padi Garlic Fried Rice Chicken ($20/half). Glistening sinfulness is a finger-licking coat over the thick batter that stays crunchy to the end. Moist and tender is the chicken and appetizing and greasy is the sauce, holding crispness in between. It’s a dish that’s smothered almost too sweet but each hunk of savoury meat just balances it, making it an addictive piece after piece of decadence to relish. With the range of preparation styles, it’s the choice if you want strong, saucy flavour over your meat. Copiously freckled with chilli padi, it’s a nice burn if you can take chilli β€” tolerably spicy for me πŸ”₯πŸ˜›πŸ”₯
