Victor Fried Chicken Wing Rice

I'm sure many of you remember Carona's fried chicken wing rice. Their flagship branch used to be at Victoria Street Food Centre, and my family would go there every Sunday after Church for lunch. It was the best fried chicken wing rice ever.

Then, the owner sold off the moniker to someone who made Carona a franchise and opened an outlet in Marina Square (where Pu Tien Restaurant is now situated). I can totally understand why some businesses refuse to franchise their business, and Carona was a classic example of the many reasons why. The standard of the food dropped drastically, the portions suddenly became suitable only for model-thin persons, and the prices rose astronomically. Obviously, Carona is now defunct.

When I moved to my current premises, little did I know that this particular stall in which I regularly buy my fried chicken wing rice is helmed by the original owner (and inventer of the fried chicken wing rice) of Carona. Until I took the time to actually read some of the writeups that are proudly on display at the stall. The eponymous stall now sells other dishes, such as homestyle fried rice, lemon chicken rice and fish fillet rice, as a matter of diversification.

We got the Fried Chicken Wing Rice ($2.50), crispy fried chicken wings served in a delectable chicken-stock-based rice, with a piquant chili sauce that packs a punch. The chicken wings are marinated overnight so the marination soaks through to the bone and fried fresh everyday. Every time the owner fries his chicken wings, the aromatic smells wafts through the air and permeates every inch of the coffeeshop.

The chili sauce is also notably addictive. the BF has been known to finish 5 saucers of the chili, just for one dish.

Honestly, no other fried chicken wing rice compares. I've seen fellow members of the bar takeaway up to 10 packets of the fried chicken wing rice.
