The popular I Love Taimei opens another branch at the basement of Bugis Junction. And I ordered a Selina set ($7.20) which comprises a BBQ crispy chicken, side dish and bubble drink. While we may be familiar with deep-fried chicken pieces found at other similar kiosks, this alternative version is first deep-fried then barbequed on charcoal, showered with addictive BBQ powder. The result is a steamy piece of chicken that remains hot and moist.
As to why the crispy chicken is named after S.H.E, it is to reflect the popularity of both this snack and the pop group. Similarly, their crispy cheese burger is called Jolin Tsai because of its ‘substantial size’. No joke.
