Most of the time, when we think of having fried chicken we’ll end up at KFC or sometimes Popeye’s.
I was introduced to Arnold’s by my classmate back when we were in primary school. Back then, their fried chicken didn’t leave much of an impression on me. So 10 years later, I revisited Arnold’s because Wei Meng heard about it and wanted to try it. We ordered a set for two persons that came with four pieces of chicken, two drinks, two fried buns, fries and coleslaw. We ordered an extra side of mashed potato as well.
I found that their fried chicken was yummy! It tasted like the fried spring chicken that you get from western food stalls at coffee shops but much better: more tender and juicy.
The sides were unmemorable. The fries tasted like the kind you can buy from supermarkets and fry at home. The coleslaw and mashed potato were nothing to shout about. Overall the experience we had at Arnold’s was good. The queue was rather long but the tables cleared really fast. The total bill amounted to $21.70, which we found a little pricey for a set for two and mashed potatoes. Arnold’s is located on the 2nd floor of City Plaza near the Watsons store.
We recommend that you try it if you are around the area or are a big fan of fried chicken. Otherwise, it’s nothing worth going out of your way for.
