While queueing for Thye Hong’s fried Hokkien prawn noodles, I saw something irresistible at the adjacent booth — skewers of chicken wings being barbequed over a charcoal fire. Freshly grilled, glistening chicken wings — how could I say no?
They were doing quite a brisk business that night. I thought the wings were just okay. They were lightly marinaded, so there wasn’t much flavor, just the natural taste of chicken. But the cooking time was just right; the meat was cooked right to the bone without drying out the meat juices.
While the wings were great fun to munch on, I much preferred the tasty chicken satay. Redolent of the fragrant spices typically used for satay, the chicken meat was succulent and tender. Yums! So was the satay peanut sauce. But at S$0.60 a stick, the satay here is somewhat pricey.
The popiah roll was mediocre, and really expensive at S$2.00 a roll. I’d probably give this a skip the next time.
