There are 7 NEW Michelin Plate hawker stalls featured in the latest Singapore Michelin Guide.

They include Hua Kee Chicken Rice, Poh Cheu (for Ang Gu Kueh), Koka Wanton Noodle, New Rong Liang Ge Cantonese Roast Duck, Shi Le Yuan (for Kway Chap), San Bao Soya Sauce Chicken (which appears to have closed or moved), and R&B Express.

Of all the listed names, R&B Express located at Newton Food Centre appears to be the most unfamiliar one.

The stall serves up BBQ Chicken Wings ($1.40 per wing, min 10), Satay ($0.70 for a stick, min 10 sticks), Popiah ($4 for 2), and Kueh Pie Tee ($4 for 6).

While Newton Food Centre may have gotten a new wave of attention to the Hollywood Blockbuster “Crazy Rich Asians”, it has always been known to be a ‘tourist-favourite’ rather than where the locals would go to.

Talking about Chicken Wings, more prominent stalls there would have been TKR Yummy Chicken Wings, Weng’s BBQ Chicken Wings, and Chong Pang Huat. But I decided to give R&B Express a try.

The Michelin inspectors described the wings as, ”Chicken wings grilled with charcoal are crispy and juicy while the spicy sauce adds to the flavour.”

Okay.

Have to say these were decent barbecued chicken wings – evenly grilled till there was that enticing brown colour, thin and lightly-crisp skin, and moderately juicy on the inside.

The accompanying chilli sauce with its tanginess helped ‘lift’ up the taste.

Were these “Michelin” wings?

I am not quite sure. They were slightly above the average in terms of juiciness, but customers may have preferred bigger sized and more flavourful ones.

The Satay ($0.70 per stick, min order 10) with chicken, mutton and beef options were also well-grilled such that they do not get overly charred.

There was a tender bite on the chicken, but I thought it was lacking in enticing flavours and the satay sauce did little to differentiate this from the other average stalls.

The Popiah ($4.00 for two rolls) with slightly dry skin, was probably its weakest link. Can order only if you have cravings, and find it convenient to get everything from the same stall.
