Two Wings has opened another branch, at Essen At The Pinnacle. Essen what?
Essen, an ‘ang moh’ foodcourt at the base of Pinnacle at Duxton. It has obviously taken a cue or two from Salut the ‘ang moh kopitiam’ with stalls such as Immanuel French Kitchen, Stew Kuche and Two Wings doing well enough.
Smart move to invite Two Wings over. (Since Immanuel already has another branch at East Coast, and Stew Kuche is owned by Salut’s boss himself. Ah-huh.)
Owner Jeremy was once concerned that I said “Two Wings standard drop” – just wasn’t as moist, colour didn’t look ‘right’ and oil didn’t taste as well.
For this newer stall, he ensured his ‘lao jiao’ (old birds) and wife (okay, this sounds wrong, but that was what he said) were there to ensure the processes are maintained. (Opps, does that mean the ’xin jiao’ (new birds) are…)
And… There is aircon.
If you are wondering what the hype is, Two Wings is created from a well-kept secret recipe of 40 years, matched with bigger wings and a spicier homemade chicken rice type chilli sauce.
The colour this time was yellow-golden, skin crunchy and meat succulent and juicy. As usual, I ordered 4 ($8.50), told myself to stick to 2 (diet) and went on to 3.
On Two Wings’ door was a line from me, “Possibly The Best Chicken Wings In Singapore”. A year later, I still stand by it. Now, the challenge is for them to keep both branches consistent in quality, service and taste. (Note: Two Wings has ended its operation at Salute at Bukit Merah.)
