    Dubbed the 'Bayan Lepas Killer Fried Chicken', there’s no turning away from this place once you’ve heard of it. Using only the choicest ingredients for their herbs and spices, these stove-to-counter fried chicken are freshly served and pack a whole lot of savoury and aromatic flavours. Of course, it’s not really a killer fried chicken without its crispy skin. 

    Tips

    Be there early to secure your dish.

    Things to expect

    Occasionally long queues.

    Let’s have some fine fried chicken at BBQ Chicken; a play of words with BBQ Chicken standing for 'Best Believable Quality Chicken’. Covered in flaky and crumbly bits, the deep-fried chicken comes with various dipping sauces such as zesty, sweet, and spicy to enhance the natural flavours of the meat. From wings, thighs, to boneless tender strips, you name it, they have it. 

    Tips

    Check out their website for a full menu and for other outlets.

    A healthier option for chicken lovers.

    Fried Chicken @ Kafe 35Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Another belacan (shrimp paste) fried chicken stall that is worthy of the spotlight, this pop up stall has a unique dish - fried chicken skin. Yes, the skin of fried chicken is often of paramount importance and that's well-understood here. In addition to that, from wings to drumsticks, your taste buds will be tickled silly with the savoury taste of belacan intertwined with the juicy and tender texture of the flesh.

    Tips

    It’s located outside of Kafe 35.

    Things to expect

    The famous fried chicken skin sells out quite rapidly.
