Arnold’s Fried Chicken used to be a luxury for West-siders, who had to travel all the way to the East for a fried chicken fix from this popular fast food restaurant. I’m one of those people.
Sure, there are delivery services but it’s just not the same as dropping by the restaurant for some freshly fried chicken. Luckily for us, those days are over! As of January 2018, Arnold’s has finally set up an outlet on our side of the island.
We couldn’t wait any longer to see if the food at this halal-certified local establishment was still as good as its supporters claimed. On its second day of operations, we headed down to the new outlet to try the fried chicken for ourselves.
The new outlet is located at Frontier Community Club, a short 5-minute walk from Jurong Point.
We arrived at 1.30pm, expecting to have evaded the lunch crowd. Boy, were we wrong. The waiting time for orders was estimated to be around 20 minutes and we had to wait for at least 10 minutes for a table to be available.
I guess that’s what happens when you gain a loyal following after 30 years of business. Finally, here’s the good part — the food!
