Fish & Chicks, Cheap Western Food at Ang Mo Kio
[Updated 05/07/2016 : Fish & Chicks opens a second outlet in Orchard Cineleisure Basement 1 Food Court]
We made a trip up North to AMK for this hot chick in town, following the craze over anything salted egg. So how does this western food situated within a coffee shop with café-standard plating fare?
Here’s a glance at their menu. Do go early like 11am or 5pm when they opens for lunch and dinner. Tip: Check their FB or IG for instant updates.
We ordered the best of both worlds Salted Egg & Chilli Crab sauce Fish & Chips ($12.90) and Grilled Hawaiian Chicken ($7.90).
The batter on the fish was crisp and we thought that the sweet spicy chili crab sauce did an excellent job in bringing out the freshness of the fish. The salted egg, on the other hand, was mild in flavor. The dish comes with a sides of fries and cheese pasta. We love the fries which resembles that of Long John Silver and pairs well with the popular truffle mayo dip. The cheese pasta was pretty normal and could be more creamy and garlicky, maybe we could have avocado cheese pasta or broccoli cheese pasta for a twist?
Hawaiian Chicken where the chicken chop is grilled with a layer of cheese and pineapple cubes. The chicken felt rather dry than tender juicy, quite disappointing. Some hits and misses but we would be keen to try their fish burger and garlic fried rice if we happen to be in the vicinity again.
FYI, we visited Fish & Chicks about 2 weeks back on a Friday at 530pm, no queue for orders (O yeah) and waited about 30 minutes before the food was served.
Given that the waiting time and order time may take up to 2 hours these days, I would advise you to delay your visit and wait for the crowd to die down unless you stays nearby. And perhaps grab some food from the nearby Cheng San Hawker first while waiting for your orders.
