Satay sellers are a dime a dozen in Singapore since forever, with most just eking out hushed, microscopic existences across generations. Chong Pang Huat's decade-old franchise network of unfamilial shake 'n bake outlets is therefore somewhat an anomaly; still we'd heard largely good things despite never having gotten around to tasting their fare. Until a recent fortuitous late evening that is, when our famished selves surveyed the uber popular Blk 85 Fengshan Food Centre after dropping in on friends living nearby. Taunted incessantly by smoky barbecue aromas curling up from its grill, we went straight for the kill - 15 skewers plus 3 whole chicken wings.

Sampling and thoughts:

Them juicy, caramelly satay meats sheathed beneath a lovely golden brown patina decried borderline unctuous, with mutton trumping both chicken and pork in the tenderness department. Then again a suave, moreish peanut dip supplied partially parried those inconsistencies.

Chicken/ Pork/ Mutton Satay @ $0.60 per stick

The chicken wings were downright splendid though: crackling crisp skin miraculously adhering to succulent, flavourful chook flesh had us yanking, sucking, swishing away before lollipopping the bones clean - etiquette police be damned.

Yet something felt amiss.......ah yes ice-cold lagers for everyone. Oh drats, sale of alcohol is prohibited past 10.30pm; what a party-pooping piece of legislation indeed.

Chicken Wings @ $1.30 per piece
