Wah, “The #1 Wings in America”. Wingstop known for its buffalo wings sauced and tossed in different flavours, has opened a NEW branch at Vivocity and Suntec City.
This is its 3rd and 4th outlets in Singapore after Bedok Mall and City Square Mall.
(To note: Wingstop is Halal certified for their outlets at Bedok Mall & City Square Mall. The Vivocity and Suntec City outlets are in compliance with MUIS regulations, however it will typically take a couple of months for a new outlet to be Halal-certified.)
Here’s what you can look forward into: wings in a choice of 12 delicious, intense flavors including Original Hot, Cajun, Atomic, Teriyaki, Lemon Pepper, Hawaiian, Garlic Parmesan, Hickory Smoked BBQ, Louisiana Rub, Mango Habanero, Kecap Manis and Oriental Soy Pepper.
AND… a Coca-Cola Freestyle dispenser. Wingstop is probably the first quick service restaurant to have it in Singapore. More on that later.
Here are 10 reasons why you will like Wingstop:
Cooked To Order
The star of the stop, the signature Wings (6 pieces combo for $10.95) are cooked to order, sauced, tossed and served with a variety of house-made sides including Wingstop’s award winning hand-cut seasoned fries.
The top-selling flavours include Louisiana Rub, Garlic Parmesan, Hickory Smoked BBQ.
A new personal favourite is the local edition Kecep Manis flavour. This is an Indonesian spicy-sweetened soy sauce, thick and syrupy in consistency, made with a unique spicy kick towards the end.
The females at the table gave a vote for the Lemon Pepper with had a distinct tangy zest, Teriyaki for its sweet-sauciness, and Oriental Soy Pepper which was almost like having wings at a zhi char stall.
Atomic For The Spice Lovers
If you are up to the challenge, try the Atomic which may set your tongue (plus lips) on fire.
A friend who couldn’t really take spicy food decided to go for it, felt the burn, gave up and teared after 2 bites, ”It really only KICKS IN after 10 seconds!“
My take: too spicy for me when eaten fresh out and hot (try it with NO water first), but worth to take a challenge (you can mix 2 flavours anyway).
At Least 2 Flavours
The good thing is, even when you order the 6 piece ($10.95 for combo), or 8 piece ($12.95 for combo), you get to choose 2 different flavours.
I further learnt that it doesn’t have to be split 3-3. 4-2, 5-1 are also fine.
That is when you can decide to have ONE Atomic chicken.
Boneless and Tender
For the, well… lazier people who do not want to tidy your fingers, Boneless and Crispy Tender versions are also available.
These Mushroom Fritters ($5.95) were CRAZY GOOD. White, fresh button mushrooms deep fried to a crisp. Amazingly, they were light and fluffy on the outside, and still juicy on the inside after bring left there alone for a while.
Recommendation: Dip with the honey mustard sauce.
Warning: These are VERY addictive.
Jalapeno Cheese Fries
Hand-cut fries, cooked to order, and the cheese sauce was the-yums. Again, perhaps eat these fast, otherwise the fries would turn soggy quick.
Get the Terikayi Wing Burger ($9.95 with fries and soda).
Okay, while the bun was nothing to shout about, the entire combination of moist and tender meat, slathered in sauce and mayo, and sandwiched between soft buns, made a satisfying fuss-free meal.
(Note: While this is called Wing Burger, it is not exactly a wing inside.)
For those who want a more Asian take, Rice Box with Wings or Tenders ($9.95 for combo) is served with coleslaw.
Coca-Cola Freestyle Machine
Wingstop is probably the first quick service restaurant in Singapore to have a Coca-Cola Freestyle Machine.
This touchscreen-operated dispenser allows you to choose from more than 80 different beverages! Almost 70 of these drinks are new to the market. You can even mix and match to your liking.
Cherry Vanilla Coca Cola, Fanta Cherry, Strawberry Sprite Zero, Lemon Tonic Schweppes… really anything goes.
This, I haven’t drank in a while. Coca-Cola Vanilla.

The Taste after becoming Halal is very far apart from the original American taste when it first opened in Singapore. It’s just not good anymore sad to say. Honey mustard dip was removed from menu too. Quality of the food has been compromised after becoming halal.
