Old Chang Kee
I think all that talk about Japanese croquettes subliminally put Old Chang Kee in my head. Old Chang Kee is a chain in Singapore serving nothing but deep-fried snacks, like egg rolls (spring rolls as they are called here), curry puffs (a Chinese samosa of sorts), and all kinds of things (Chinese, anyway; no Scottish deep-fried Mars bars or frozen pizza here!). I try to avoid this place as much as I can as it's obviously not very healthy, and the food is often served lukewarm. But once in a while I will hit it up for an as-needed nibble to keep me going (the spring rolls are actually decently good, and for only S$0.90 or US$0.50).
The scary thing is that these guys actually deliver, but I don't think they have any full-blown meals; just these greasy deep fried snacks. I'd hate to imagine the artery-clogging that is happening on the receiving end of those deliveries.
