West-siders rejoice! Our favourite kopitiam stall, Fish & Chicks, has recently opened its 3rd outlet in Singapore. Nestled in a Koufu food court right next to Commonwealth MRT station, look out for the iconic yellow banner that’ll lead you to affordable and scrumptious Western food.
The new stall features equally friendly staff and the same bangin’ menu that’s available at the other two outlets in Ang Mo Kio and Orchard Cineleisure.
I could already smell the fresh dory fish being deep fried into crispy, golden goodness – usually it’s hard to decide what to order at a kopitiam, but this was a no-brainer. I had come for three reasons: the three new Thai-inspired dishes on the menu.
Trust me when I say that you’re going to want to read till the end.
Level up your classic fish and chips with the Thai Chilli Fish & Chips ($11.60). A huge piece of perfectly battered dory was balanced on a bed of crispy fries and served with a side of — wait for it — blueberry coleslaw.
The combination of sweet and savoury flavours worked very well together, but the highlight was still the fish.
I could eat almost anything with a solid Thai chilli sauce, and Fish & Chicks’ homemade version didn’t disappoint. The dip is actually infused with a bit of tomyum, which probably made all the difference.
I’d even recommend mixing the Thai chilli and tar tar sauce together for the optimal fusion flavour combination.
The Tomyum Pasta ($10.50) was one of the more intriguing new items on the menu, and I was glad to know that the soup is homemade. The use of spaghetti made for a very filling meal, and the soup base had just the right amount of spice.
Fish & Chicks really doesn’t scrimp on portion size; I mean, just look at that fish! The same, classic battered dory is used and if you don’t want it to get soggy, just ask the friendly staff to have it served on the side.
If you’re a fan of fried fish soup and tomyum, you’re probably going to enjoy this.
Fish & Chicks is also really popular for the crispy fried chicken cutlets that it serves, and this Thai fusion dish marries the delicious protein with a green curry dip and pineapple fried rice.
The Green Curry Chicken Cutlet ($11.60) featured a crunchy piece of chicken that was tender on the inside, and extremely well-seasoned.
I really liked the consistency of the green curry dip, and that it was served as a dip rather than as a whole curry. Dunk pieces of the chicken in and enjoy with the fluffy pineapple rice!
If for some reason Thai-centric food just isn’t your thing, you could always go for one of the classic Fish & Chicks favourites like the Hawaiian Chicken ($9.50). Grilled chicken is slathered with pizza tomato sauce, cheese and pineapples, reminiscent of one of the most popular pizza toppings in Singapore.
Combine that with a side of onion rings (with wasabi mayo for that extra kick) and creamy mashed potato, and you know you’ll be all set to take on the rest of your day.
Another dish that you can’t go wrong with is the Best of Both Worlds ($14.80). I mean, getting two huge pieces of fish with the popular salted egg sauce AND chilli crab sauce?
Let’s just say I was mopping everything up after with the fries.
Fish & Chicks remains as reliable and consistent as ever, serving up affordable Western food that’s as humble and down-to-earth as the owner. Beat the queues and check out the new Thai-inspired dishes (available at all outlets) and the new outlet today!
Expected damage: $8.50 – $14.80
