Before the salted egg and mala trends kicked in, Singaporeans used to be obsessed with something else that was just as addictive.
Fluffy, savoury and extremely fragrant, chicken floss was and still is until today, something that is loved by Singaporeans. We love our chicken floss with buns, as a topping for our porridge or even as a snack on its own. It was especially popular during festive occasions like Chinese New Year, where jars of these used to be given away as gifts.
Just in time for Singapore’s 55th National Day, KFC has released a new chicken flavour featuring—you guessed it—chicken floss! It will be available in all KFC restaurants from 21 July 2020 onwards excluding KFC Singapore Zoo.

Good food is what it is, but throw a few fancy words and overly exaggerated expressions into the mix and what do you get? Food that automatically sounds luxurious, extravagant and expensive.
Just for giggles, here are 8 local dishes that you would think costed a bomb if you didn’t know what they were before, based on corny expressions, overly pretentious descriptions and bombastic words.
