REALLY GOOD
2nd TENDER ITALIAN BAKED CHICKEN
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Used bread crumbs and an Italian seasoning, both of which I created from scratch.
3rd ROASTED CHICKEN
Soots Cook Nook, Private
This was really tasty, thanks to an overnight soak in a kicap manis-based spicy marinade.
4th CHICKEN RICE CHICKEN
Ah Tai Chicken Rice, Singapore
Juicy chicken rice chicken from Tian Tian’s master chef of 20 years.
5th 烟焗茶皇鸡 SMOKED KAMPONG CHICKEN
Wah Lok, Singapore
Chicken was tender and perfectly smoked.
6th YUZU PEPPER CHICKEN SKIN CHIPS
Sumo Bar Happy, Singapore
“Nori-wrapped chicken skin chips, tossed in a house-blend of yuzu and pepper spice, served with sour cream, chives and shio konbu.” I’m not sure I tasted yuzu, but they were very tasty.
PRETTY GOOD
7th TORI NEGI CHEESE
720 Bistro & The Toys, Singapore
Was told it was pizza. But this was more an oven-baked dish of batter-fried chicken boneless pieces and melted mozzarella. Not bad.
8th AYAM BUAH KELUAK
Dulukala, Singapore
Chicken and buah keluak (a black Indonesian nut) in tamarind sauce.
10th GENERAL TSO’S CHICKEN 左宗棠鸡
Crystal Jade Hong Kong Kitchen, Singapore
Deep-fried chicken nuggets in a robust tangy and spicy sauce. My first time eating these outside the U.S., except these are 1.5X the price for ~ half the amount, LOL.
11th SOYA SAUCE CHICKEN WITH OSMANTHUS 桂花头抽䜴油鸡
Crystal Jade Hong Kong Kitchen, Singapore
The classic, accentuated with osmanthus-infused soya sauce and osmanthus honey. It was unsettlingly sweet.
13th AYAM PENYET
Rusnah Cafe, Singapore
Today’s special. Chicken was a bit dry but overall, a satisfying meal.
15th MISO CHICKEN 鶏肉の甘辛味噌焼き
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Marinated some chicken thighs in an umami-packed homemade miso sauce over 44 hours before pan-frying to a charred crisp and layering them strips over a bowl of steamed rice from Niigata Prefecture. As if that wasn’t enough (no, it wasn’t!), yours truly topped it off with an extra drizzle of miso sauce and a few sprinkles of scallion and sesame seeds. Quite a satisfying lunch this made.
16th BACON-WRAPPED CHICKEN THIGH
Odys + Penelope, Los Angeles
Bacon wrapped chicken thigh, lemon date sauce
19th 䜴油玫瑰露养殖鸡 BRAISED CORN-FED “YUEN” CHICKEN, SOYA SAUCE, ROSE DEW WINE
Man Fu Yuan Restaurant, Singapore
The menu description was interesting but the dish wasn’t much different than a regular Chinese roast chicken.
20th 三水姜茸鸡 SAMSUI GINGER CHICKEN
三盅兩件 SOUP RESTAURANT, Singapore 278997
A traditional dish which the Samsui Ladies of yore had during their gatherings. Involves a chicken preparation process they’re not about to divulge anytime soon. Served with a Samsui Ginger Sauce (although I’m unsure what makes it particularly Samsui).
JUST OK
21st CHICKEN BUTTER MASALA
The Spice Kitchen, Johor Bahru
“Chicken tikka cooked in fenugreek leaves and tomato gravy.” Man...this was one-dimensional and too sweet.
22nd 南洋鸡片卷 NANYANG CHICKEN ROLL
Cathay Restaurant (Horizon) Sdn. Bhd., Nusajaya
Think a cross between Kung Pao chicken, honey chicken and Peking Duck. There was too much going on in this dish.
NOT FOR ME
25th 50% OF 滑鸡怡保河粉干 SILKY CHICKEN IPOH HOR FUN
Yee Cheong Yuen, Singapore
Now just realizing this is what I would serve the cat (sans the sauce) if she had GI issues. #technicallyblandfood
