Located within Timbre+, Ah Tan Wings specialize in one of Singapore’s favourite fried chicken flavour. Prawn paste chicken, or har cheong gai. YumzYumz tried out their prawn paste chicken cutlet chicken rice and here is our food review of it.
Served on a huge black coloured plate, a serving of rice topped with sunny side up egg, some cucumber slices, and a wedge of lemon slice on top of a HUGE crispy aromatic fried chicken cutlet.
Ah Tan’s chicken rice was absolutely spot on, with every grain so nicely separated and not mushy, emitting subtle fragrance and delightfully tasty, but somewhat on the oily side. Egg was nicely fried with a gooey yolk flowing into the rice.
The main attraction, their HUGE juicy tenderlicious deep fried chicken thigh was so perfect, no surprises on why their queue was SO DAMN long in a busy lunch crowd on a weekday. It’s skin crust was crispy crunchy OMG awesome, fully infused with their strong tasty prawn paste marinate. Juice/fats/oil dripped onto our rice, giving it further taste and flavour ^^. The fact of the matter for such tasty fried food stuff is, because it is oily, heavily marinated, that is why Ah Tan’s marinated chicken taste so damn good and for that reason, high demand from customers.
On the sides we got their sweet zesty thai chilli sauce, which to be honest, isn’t necessary as their prawny tasting chicken should not be covered with any sauce. It’s good as it is. Extremely satisfied.
At $7.90 set meal, we got a huge prawn paste fried chicken cutlet, flavourful chicken rice and an egg, as well as a canned drink. For such quality and quantity at Ah Tan’s Wings, you bet they would have tons of recurring customers.
