Triple C from Chippy

Triple C

Not completely full from that bowl of soup tonight, I stopped by Chippy to finally try that Triple C Cheesy Curry Chicken. The picture on the signboard made it look like some big slabs of meat, so I was a bit surprised when it came out in little deep fried cubes in a bag, complete with skewers sticking out of it like Taiwanese fried chicken. Indeed, it even tasted a bit like it, being greasy, salty, and spicy (note to self: the "extra spicy" was actually fairly mild and didn't really taste like curry either).

Of course, the batter was much heavier, and there was no basil in here. Moreover, they gave a cold cheese dip to go with it, but I didn't actually end up using the cheese that much as the chicken was tasty enough. I don't know if this was really an English thing or not (can anyone please verify?), but I did enjoy eating it...in moderation, of course, seeing how it wasn't the healthiest thing in the world. At least it was cheap at only S$3.45 (US$2).

Never seen it anywhere in the UK. I believe Chippy's is definitely localised.
