Chakey's Salt Baked Chicken - from Tang's

Chakey's Salt Baked Chicken

Sweeeeet...Tang's on Orchard sells Chakey's salt baked chicken in their basement. These are stamped with the original Chakey's logo rather than that Hiang Kee name from Saturday (and yet both spots had the brown Chakey's box), so I'm not quite sure what the deal was there. And despite Serangoon being in the name, it looks like the original Chakey's is located at 97 East Coast Road.

Well, I may not have a complete grasp of its background, but I sure do like it. I actually bought this yesterday so that I could bring it into the office today for a convenient lunch. On a suggestion, I ate it cold right out of the fridge. It was so good that I didn't even need to go as far as to smear it in any of that coagulated fat. Yum.

Hello there... Im a reader from new zealand... Been reading ur blog for a number of years and am always intrigued by ur posts... Took a trip to Singapore once and went to most of the places uve eaten... However, i was wondering around arab st and bussorah st and chanced upon a restaurant called "Dahlia's Cafe" if im not mistaken its located on 67/68 bussorah st... they sell malay type cuisines like those u call economy rice... Their food is superb especially their beef rendang and their spicy squid... i think its called sambel sotong... u should try it because we had a chat with the owner and found out that he is arab but his wife is malay... havin been accustomed to his family's tastebud she managed to infuse local singaporean arabs taste into the malay cuisine... their local desserts are also worth a try especially tis thing tht is called lopez... its a triangular dessert drenched in brown sugar sauce... Do give it a try... highly recommended oh and their service is superb and their fresh calamansi drinks are not to be missed... =D *Bree*
