Singaporeans should be familiar with the popular Taiwanese street food kiosk – Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks 士林台灣小吃, known for its XXL Crispy Chicken and Handmade Oyster Mee Sua.
Other must-have Taiwanese snack items there include Crispy Floss Egg Crepe, Seafood Tempura and Sweet Plum Potato Fries, which continue to be favourites among customers.
For deep-fried chicken lovers, look out for the next NEW item – Flaming Thick Cut Honey Chicken, to be introduced exclusively at the Paya Lebar Quarter outlet (#B2-K9).
What you get is a big piece of boneless chicken breast, deep-fried with crispy coating, glazed with honey, then flamed for added caramelisation. Here’s more:
Thick Cut Honey Chicken ($4.90)
The Thick Cut Honey Chicken contains a large piece of boneless chicken breast, marinated with a special recipe, coated with imported flour then fried to a golden-brown crisp.
The chicken breast fillet is specially cut into a thick slice of at least 2cm, and remains succulent and tender after deep-frying.
Interesting to know that a special fryer is used, and each chicken piece requires 5 minutes to be cooked so that it is crispy on the outside and cooked through in the middle.
After which, the piece would be coated generously with honey, so that you get the fragrant-sweetness on the outside, along with juicy bite.
Take note that the store does not recommend cutting up the chicken piece so that customers can enjoy the succulence to its fullest.
Flaming Thick Cut Honey Chicken ($5.50)
Between the two options, I would recommend getting the flame-grilled option, which gives the chicken a touch of smokiness and delectable glaze.
The honey will be slightly caramelised and turn into a beautiful and rich golden-brown colour.
Tamarind Nitro Beer ($4.90)
Pair up the Thick Cut Honey Chicken with the newly introduced Tamarind Nitro ‘Beer’. This is a 0% alcohol beer, and so is suitable for all ages to consume.
As this is nitrogen-carbonated, you get this cooling waterfall of tiny bubbles within, along with a fluffy white layer of foam at the top for added creaminess.
The chilled Tamarind Nitro Beer is refreshing with a tropical twist, and tasted sweet and tangy at the same time.
