If you are over cafe food, it is time to ditch the cutleries (and don’t count your calories!) at our top picks and the best places you can get fried chicken in Singapore.

1. Ah Tan Wings

Truly Singaporean chicken wings, Ah Tan Wings which is located at Yishun Park Hawker Centre is made from prawn paste (har cheong gai) fried chicken, which is mind-blowing! The Gen-Y hawker, Tan Wee Yang, opened his stall when he was just 25 years old. The chicken wings are affordably priced at $7.50 for 3 wings & 3 drumlets or $12 for 6 wings & 6 drumlets.

They are mass deep-fried once, then another round, when customers order to ensure the wings are served piping hot. Mr Tan recommends dipping their chicken wings in their homemade chilli sauce for an extra kick. Their other stalls are also located at Timbre+ and Ayer Rajah.

True to its name, fried chicken at The Beast Southern Kitchen & Bourbon Bar is extraordinary. The Chicken & Waffles ($20) features their signature fried chicken, served atop a buttermilk waffle, a sunny side up and bourbon maple butter sauce. If you’re apprehensive about mixing sweet and savoury together, this dish will prove you wrong. Order their Freshly Baked Cornbread ($8), which comes with a dollop of butter for the full Southern American culinary experience.

Opened by Singapore Idol’s 1st winner, Taufik Batisah, Chix Hot Chicken, is a quaint restaurant located at Jalan Pisang in Bugis. This Halal Nashville-styled restaurant doesn’t only serve the tastiest and juiciest fried chicken, they’re also known for using one of the spiciest chilli in the world – ghost peppers. Their Quarter Nashville Hot Chicken ($9.90) is their best-seller, and for sharing we recommend the Soul Sliders ($12.90). There are four levels of spiciness – Mild, Medium, Hot and Insane. We suggest to start slow, but if you’re a fan of spicy flavour, go forth and good luck!

Previously known as The Bird, Yardbird Southern Table & Bar serves authentic South American cooking. While there are many sublime dishes offered here, the true star is the Chicken ‘n’ Watermelon ‘n’ Waffles ($40), that breaks all the rules (for all the right reason). The chicken is brined for 27 hours to seal in all the moisture and keep the flavours intact. The waffles are made from a mixture of cheddar cheese and herbs. Cut a piece of everything, and eat them all together for a gastronomical explosion of flavour.
