Huat Huat BBQ Chicken Wing (Food Republic)

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?

BBQ chicken wings (S$1.20 each).

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.

Chicken satay (S$0.60 per stick, minimum order 6 sticks).

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.

Popiah (S$2.00 per roll).

The popiah roll was mediocre, and really expensive at S$2.00 a roll. I’d probably give this a skip the next time.

    Glad U’re bck.
    Thks 4 de review on the Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee. I’ve always wondered if it’s worth the wait. But then my hunger got the better of me & hence I’d go for a stall with a shorter queue.
    1) U should try the Dim Sum from Fortuna de next time U’re at Food Republic. It’s not too bad for that kinda price.
    2) The chicken rice stall is gd too. Apparently, it was rumoured that it is opened by the chef formerly from Chatterbox, Mandarin Hotel.
    3) Curry Scissors stall is not too bad. The curry gravy is nice with the crispy pork chop.
    4) Minced Meat Mushroom Noodle is good too.
    Alrte…this is not helping. I’m getting more & more hungry as I comment on food. Need to run out of office to grab dinner.:0)

    Hi rachel,
    I’m counting down with you! 🙂
    Hi Cin,
    I’m glad to be back too. Thanks for your recommendations. Now I know which stalls to head for without having to second guess. 🙂
