Chicken chicken winner dinner!

@88chicken_sg is a new korean fried chicken joint which opened in a mixed development in the Potong Pasir area recently. They serve their fried chickens 3-way: original, yangnyeom (spicy) and ganjang (soy sauce).

I have tried both the yangnywom and ganjang flavours. Compared to my personal gold standard, Waker Chicken, 88 Chicken's KFC is visibly smaller. The batter is also thinner and less crisp. The meat however is tender and better marinated. The sauces are also mellower.

@jooeunchung prefers 88 Chicken. I am kinda on the fence because I do like Waker's shattering crisp chicken skin (even when you do a takeaway) and portions but 88 Chicken has an edge in terms of the texture of the chicken meat and the sauces (if you like it milder). I think it boils down to a matter of personal preference as to which is better! Though you get to enjoy 88 Chicken in air-conditioned comfort and they apparently serve a good kimchi jjigae and haemul pajeon (seafood pancake).

Do let me know which do you prefer!

A hidden gem for Korean Fried Chicken. Run by Koreans, there’s a constant crowd picking up their Korean fried chicken.

Three flavours to choose from - Fried, Yongnyeom and Soy - you can have them as Half Chicken (from $17), Full Chicken (from $32), Boneless thighs or Wings (from $18) only. Soy sauce marinated chicken is thinly battered and super crunchy even when it turns cold.

And with the crazy wet weather, a bubbling pot of Army Stew (from $20/small) just hits the spot. Filled with spam, sausage, toppoki and more, their version is quite well-balanced and not too spicy that we finish the soup before we know it.

A fuss free experience here - I like the comforting and fluffy waffles ($6). While I went for the ricotta cheese with pistachio bits (premium flavour -$5), I felt that its tastes resemble vanilla instead and probably will try other flavours next time

This stall at Potong Pasir is one of those that was much better in the past, but they still serve a reliable above average rendition.
.
What remains good here - the juicy 5 spice roll with meaty earthy savoury sweet salty flavour, and the crispy handmade prawn fritters with enticing sweet savoury salty flavour.
.
The bouncy tofu beancurd with grainy sweet flavour is pretty good too, especially with their rich chili sauce which has a good spicy sour nutty kick.
.
They used to serve cucumbers with each order, but not anymore. The fried bee hoon / vermicelli noodles is decent, but runs out far too quickly.

Found a neighbourhood cafe in the area, and I totally love this place! Once you step in, you are greeted by a very comfortable chill vibe that is perfect to for long conversations with your friend or loved ones 😻 We had the Iced White ($6.50) and Iced Mocha ($7) and they both are very aromatic. While the white was good, I really preferred the Mocha more as it has a very balance of chocolate and coffee flavours. Furthermore it is really thick! Will be back when I'm in the area ☺️

Featuring real Bakkwa chunks 🥓 embedded within creamy gelato, this guarantees you a satisfying bite! It's like how I enjoyed bacon cheesecake, this combination somehow grew on me! 😋 A sweet & savoury indulgence!

If you are curious/adventurous, find these icy treats ❄ at selected @beechenghiangsg outlets, @fairpricesg & @shengshiongsupermarket_official. 🛒 Twin pack (2 cups in the box) retails at $10.25 👌🏻

Lol that's what you call the national leader of the dish. For those who haven't tried this, if you thought all wu xiang are the same, just the water chestnut cake and Chinese sausage would change you. On this day the fishballs were not fresh.

It’s probably the most authentic Wu Xiang store in Singapore where the the prawn fritters is made in-house. Def try that, and the Taukwa too.

Sardine curry puff - The moist sardine packed a light heat and tasted really good with the crisp skin.

i forgot what flavour but yep it's not bad and the place is quite big so u can find seats

Highly recommended by the boss as it is one of their best selling dish

Verdict: fish head curry gravy with hor fun and chicken pieces, can be abit too salty but definitely an innovative and very filling dish. Bonus on the wok hey too!
