Two Wings @ Bukit Merah

Category : Western

Since I’m on it – blogging about not-so-nice food, let me just do a quick mention on Two Wings as well.

This is another disappointing long wait despite all the rage in social media.

We ordered their signature chicken wings along with some other dishes, with high expectations, only to end up struggling to clear the food.

Frankly speaking, it has been a while back since we first visited Two Wings and concluded that we won’t be returning again, so everything is kind of vague now.

If I recall correctly, their chicken wings are big, crispy & maybe juicy? In fact we were pretty impressed when the chicken wings were first served. But that’s about it.

There wasn’t much seasoning and they were quite bland. Plus the greasiness starts to get to us after a while. The feeling is quite different from the $1 coffee shop chicken wings I used to eat with my comrades where we could go on all night.

Their chilli is also reputed to be good as well. The darker one on the right is just a normal chilli sauce, like Heinz. The other chili arrived later and is the special chilli.

Personally I find the latter’s spice overpowering. When I dip the chicken wings in it, I don’t taste anything except spicy. So I stopped dipping the chicken wings after a while.

Not sure what else can I add…save your calories?

Redhill Food Centre – Hua Kee Chicken Rice

Category : Local Singapore Food

A while back, some of my friends asked, why don’t I blog about food that’s not nice. If I recall correctly, I replied saying because it’s not nice so no need to share, aka share the good stuff.

Thinking back now, another reason will be that it takes a lot of time & effort to blog, at least for me. So if it’s not nice, do I really want to spend time & effort on it when there are so many other things to blog about?

Today once again I was asked to blog about food that’s not nice. I guess it’s because on both occasions we had food that was highly recommended, yet it was just not up to par. And on both occasions we spent time & effort to wait/queue for the food.

Of course everything is subjective, what we find nice, others may not and vice versa.

So don’t believe a word I say, as what I’m saying is only my opinion, based on my experience. Sounds familiar?

Today we headed down to Redhill Food Centre after a friend discovered that Hua Kee Chicken Rice was crowned the Number 1 Chicken Rice in Singapore.

We queued for 40mins with around 20 people queuing in front of us. We ordered half chicken with 5 plates of rice costing $15.50.

Tasting the chicken by itself, all of us were unable to identify what the sauce resembles. Definitely no chicken taste. Only plus point is, the meat is tender.

The rice looks and tastes almost like normal white rice.

Chilli is average, tastes like any other chicken rice chilli.

The best part of the meal is the clear soup that comes with the meal. It is topped with spring onions & tastes like chicken, albeit oily.

Conclusion

The famous Redhill Food Centre’s Hua Kee Chicken Rice is a disappointment. We will not be returning again, much less queue up for it. Makes us wonder though, why the long queue? Guess we’re just not tasting what’s appealing to them? Shrugs

Stew Küche @ Bt Merah

Category : German

Stew Küche is a gem hidden in a coffeeshop in Bukit Merah.

A very different coffeeshop, with checkered table cloths and a notice saying “Please wait to be seated”.

Some of the better known makan places in Alexandra are Keng Eng Kee Seafood & Two Wings.

Stew Küche is housed in the same coffeeshop as Two Wings.

Our last visit was quite a while ago and their menu has since been updated. Definitely more pro now.

As I was flipping through Stew Küche’s menu, my mind was fixated on their German Pork Knuckles. However I also can’t help thinking about the calories as I have been eating a lot during the Chinese New Year period *blush*

So I decided to order their Café de Paris (Boneless Chicken Leg) @ S$11.40 instead.

For the 1st time ever, the actual dish actually looks better than the photo! Haha~ Check out the “cute” mash potatoes with 2 cherry potato “eyes” and the runny egg. Wow!

It’s definitely way better than the Astons Chicken Chop I had the day before. And Astons has increased their price again! Their Chicken Chop is now S$9.90.

When it comes to chicken chop, I have a habit of removing the skin before digging in. And while doing so, I was surprised to see melted cheese between the skin and the sunny-side up. So I was left with no choice but to consume the skin which was pretty crispy so it was all good (except for the fats) haha~

The mash potatoes that came with Stew Küche’s chicken chop is definitely different from the usual mash potatoes we’re accustomed to. From the looks & taste of it, most probably Stew Küche makes their own mash potatoes and it’s pretty good.

I really enjoyed Stew Küche’s Café de Paris (Boneless Chicken Leg).

My partner ordered Stew Küche’s Spaghetti Pescatora @ S$18.00 and gave it the thumbs up as well.

I’m not a fan of tomato-based spaghetti however I still tried a mouthful and the spaghetti was cooked just right. I have to say, Stew Küche is very generous with the ingredients and there was a lot of prawns!

We were both extremely full after our dinner @ Stew Küche. Satisfied 🙂
