3 Mixed Pieces Combo

3 Mixed Pieces Combo

Price: $14.75

Created by: our team

The dish: We are serving 3 pieces of drumsticks and thighs, with fresh hand-cut yam fries as a side and deep fried mini buns.

Description: Our 3 mixed pieces fried chicken is made of fresh, never frozen drumsticks and thighs, all sourced locally. The chicken is marinated with Five Spice, sesame oil, garlic and soy sauce to create the “traditional” flavour of the Taiwanese fried chicken. Dipped in our special formulated wet batter to give a thin and crispy coating; every piece of the fried chicken is made-to-order so the customers can enjoy piping hot, juicy and crispy fried chicken! In terms of the seasoning, customers have the options of regular or different spicy levels to give a nice kick!

To pair the fried chicken, we have the fresh hand-cut yam fries as a side, instead of dipping sauce, we sprinkle our own plum powder on top of the yam fries to give a salty and sweet flavour! To finish off, we have included deep fried mini buns that can be dipped in the condensed milk as a dessert!

With this dish, we are hoping to let customers experience the authentic Taiwanese style fried chicken! “
