Here in Singapore, we have a wide variety of cuisines to choose from regardless of our dietary differences. Still, one cuisine that doesn't get nearly enough praise is American takeaway – the ultimate culinary choice for those who love comfort food, massive meals and tasty treats. One American dish that is gaining popularity in Singapore is fried chicken, so we thought we'd find all the best places for you to get your hands on some. These meals certainly aren't for the faint of heart, but if you're truly hungry and ready to eat chicken like never before then these are the restaurants for you.
1. Chicken Combo Meals - Texas Chicken
For anyone who is absolutely famished and ready to eat a true American meal the true American way, try Texas Chicken. There are party set meals made up of, quite literally, dozens of chicken pieces as well as limited time offers such as Hong Kong Pow! Mala chicken. The combo meals could probably feed a small army, so are great when eating in a pair – but why not go it alone (if you're feeling brave)? There's the traditional chicken piece meals, as well as Tex sample meals and even wraps to choose from. If you're really hungry there's also the a la carte menu, which features honey butter biscuits, mashed potatoes and coleslaw.
2. Fried Originals – Oven Fried Chicken
Fried chicken isn't famous for being a particularly healthy dietary choice, so we're pretty grateful to Oven Fried Chicken for concocting some healthier versions of this bad boy. At this restaurant they only deal in vegetable oil, ensuring the chicken is still absolutely scrumptious but not nearly as naughty as it would be if they used more traditional cooking methods. So, you don't have to feel guilty for ordering one of their Fried Original dishes, which include whole, half and boneless chickens. Each one comes with prawn chips, radish and a soft drink too. Could it get any better?
3. Crispy Fried Chicken & Garlic Chicken – Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory
For a seemingly infinite variety of fried chicken, look no further than Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory. There are so many different flavours, experimental combinations and cooking methods available on this restaurant's menu that it's difficult to choose a single one. There's the honey butter chicken topped with almond flakes, spicy chicken and even Kkan Pung King to choose from. Still, we recommend the crispy fried chicken and garlicky chicken combo above the others, as you get the best of both worlds.
4. Yangnyum – Twins
Despite having only just opened in late 2015, Twins has already managed to become one of the best fried chicken hotspots in Singapore. This is probably thanks to the experimental edge of their dishes, offering everything from spicy dakgangjung, which combines fried rice cakes and boneless chicken, to soy and lemon kkanpungki. Anyone wanting to stay with the American theme but still give it a bit of a twist should absolutely try Twins' yangnyum: fried chicken complimented by homemade sweet and spicy sauce.
Of course, there are plenty of other fried chicken places in Singapore, just check out Deliveroo to find more.
