It would seem logical to conclude that chicken, or more specifically, fried chicken, is one of the best forms of comfort food around. Practically every culture has their own version of it—from the Koreans, the Americans and even Singaporeans.
Unless for health reasons (or dietary restrictions), it’s practically impossible to find anyone who dislikes fried chicken. The golden crust, the sheer succulence enclosed within its crusty exterior and the sensation you get the second your teeth sink into and through the crunchy layer to expose all that piping-hot chicken deliciousness—is frankly all it takes to transport us to gastronomic heaven.
The very thought of fried chicken on an empty stomach, or even on a cold, rainy day is enough to arouse our appetites, but enough of that, here are 22 best places to get fried chicken in Singapore.
