Chicken Supremo: Super wallet-friendly Western food with $5 chicken chop at Jurong West

With Chicken Supremo, I’ve possibly found the most affordable halal Western stall in Singapore. It’s located along Jurong West Street 41 (which admittedly wasn’t the most convenient location around), and I just had to try it once I saw their absurd prices online.

Having started way back in 1992, Chicken Supremo has become an icon amongst residents of Jurong West. When their stall fell victim to the fire that destroyed the Jurong West wet market and coffee shop in 2016, many residents expressed their support via social media.

There was also a reoccurring mention of a Bismillah Aunty online which was a reference to the aunty who works there and constantly says a blessing while cooking, taking and handing out orders.

If you scour the internet, you can also find patrons complimenting the Western stall, mentioning how they’ve been eating there since secondary school and how it provided numerous cheap family dinners. Suffice it to say, it’s been affordable for a very long time.

What I tried at Chicken Supremo

Chicken Supremo - Black Pepper Chicken Chop & Cheese Fries

It’s not often you get old-school Western food at old-school prices. Chicken Supremo definitely shines in that department.

Options wise, it had all the Western hawker classics that you knew as a child, minus some beef and pasta options. There were items such as Beef Burger (S$2)Chicken Cutlet (S$5) and Fish and Chip (S$5). For a really late lunch, I had the Black Pepper Chicken Chop (S$5.50)Cheese Fries (S$2) and Chicken Wing (S$1.20).

Chicken Supremo - Cheese Fries and Chicken

I opted to taste the Cheese Fries before they got soggy and cold in the drizzly weather. I initially thought that the portion was slightly lacking with fries as it looked to be half of the order I’d get in the Western stall around my area.

Then again, I am paying less than half of what that cost, so it made sense. They were considerably generous too with their cheese and mayo condiments, more so than most KFC outlets.

Taste wise, it was faultless. Generic cheese sauce and mayo on warm and crispy shoestring fries, blessed of course, like every hawker cheese fries you ever had at half the price!

Chicken Supremo - Fried Chicken

Next was the Chicken Wing, which had crispy skin and surprisingly juicy flesh. The best way to describe the taste was that familiar salty, savoury and probably MSG-laden Western hawker stall fried chicken flavour. However, I thought it could have still used a little more salt.

Chicken Supremo - Black Pepper Chicken Chop

On to my main dish, the Black Pepper Chicken Chop. It certainly looked the part, with the same shoestring fries, canned baked beans and coleslaw, and a decently sized chicken chop with black pepper sauce that was runnier than I was used to.

Surprisingly, my chicken chop was tender to cut and similarly to bite. There was also a fair bit of char added to the overall taste.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t a fan of the sauce. It was really watered down and was essentially a slightly salty brown liquid with very faint hints of black pepper.

I also really liked the bun that came with the meal. It was a fried and buttery delight with a satisfying crunch at every bite.

Final thoughts

Chicken Supremo - Crowd

Was this the best Western food I’ve ever had? No. Was it the cheapest? Yes. This is easy to recommend for people living around the area, but it is hard to do the same for someone who doesn’t, especially when you take the travelling cost into consideration.

Whilst undeniably affordable, I think they are better tastier options albeit at a marginally higher price.

As my meal came to an end, I observed a large crowd queuing for their meal. Heartwarming scenes of families and even groups of secondary school students awaiting an affordable dinner, and onward goes the cycle once again.

Expected damage: S$2 – S$5.50 per pax
