Grab That Chick: Crispy KFC-style fried chicken hidden in an industrial building in Bukit Batok

One of the most surprising discoveries I’ve made since I started working at SETHLUI is the sheer number of food spots tucked away within unassuming industrial buildings. One of these places is Grab That Chick, a Western food stall hidden in WCEGA Plaza in Bukit Batok.

It took me about twenty minutes of wandering around WCEGA Plaza and all of its automobile shops before I finally located Grab That Chick, located within TTL Eating House. Fortunately, the coffeeshop could be easily spotted due to its liberal usage of bright signages.

Grab That Chick specialises in KFC-style fried chicken and other familiar Western dishes, like chicken cutlet, chicken chop and fried fish. Perhaps one of the most iconic things about this stall is its, um, rather suggestive logo. How cheeky!

With main dishes ranged from S$7.50 to S$16.50, I found the prices of the food to be quite typical of a Western food stall. I excitedly ordered a few dishes to try.

What I tried at Grab That Chick

grab that chick - mixed grill

I started out with the most expensive dish available at Grab That Chick, the Mixed Grill (S$16.50), consisting of a sausage, chicken chop, pork chop, fries, coleslaw and a choice of either mushroom, BBQ or black pepper sauce. Straight away, I was stunned at the generosity of the meat served. All three proteins were gigantic!

The chicken chop had a nicely charred surface and a moderately tender texture. It was also slightly chewy. Unfortunately, I found the chicken chop itself to be lacking a bit in terms of flavour, and it tasted a little bland.

The BBQ sauce that I had chosen, however, managed to remedy the slight blandness of the chicken chop by providing it with a sweet and tangy flavour.

The pork chop, on the other hand, was rather firm and dry. While it had been nicely seasoned to have a peppery flavour, the texture was much too tough for my liking.

grab that chick - sausage

The sausage, despite being the simplest element of the Mixed Grill, was the most well-executed one, in my opinion. It was large, thick and juicy, and had enough flavour to be enjoyed on its own. It was salty yet tender and slightly chewy with a pleasant mouthfeel.

grab that chick - fries

I was impressed with the generous serving of fries that came with the Mixed Grill. They were incredibly crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. I loved how the fries did not look or taste like the typical shoestring fries served at most other Western food stalls.

The final element of the dish, the coleslaw, was average but crunchy and refreshing. I liked how light it was on the palate compared to the other elements that were saltier in nature.

While Grab That Chick’s Mixed Grill did have a few shortcomings, especially the tough pork chop, for just S$16.50, I still found it to be very well-priced and incredibly generous with its portions.

Next, I had Grab That Chick’s signature Fried Chicken (S$7.50 for two pieces, S$9.50 for three pieces), which was served with fries and coleslaw, similar to the Mixed Grill.

Straight away, I was drawn in by the delicious fragrance wafting from the pieces of fried chicken. Each chicken piece was very crispy and boasted gorgeous golden brown hues.

The fried chicken skin let out a satisfying crunch as I bit into it, and I liked the flavourful spices that had been incorporated into the batter. The chicken meat itself was not the most tender, but was still soft enough. Compared to most other fried chicken establishments, Grab That Chick’s Fried Chicken was significantly less salty. For those who dislike the saltiness of fried chicken fast food chains, here’s a contender for you to consider.

With its affordability and quality, I would most certainly return for the Fried Chicken again!

grab that chick - chicken cutlet pasta

The final main I tried was the Chicken Cutlet Pasta (S$8), served with a fried chicken cutlet, aglio olio pasta and coleslaw.

I found the chicken cutlet to be slightly underwhelming. While it had been served piping hot with a crispy surface, the chicken meat was quite bland on its own. I think the meat could have been marinated for longer to let the flavours seep in more.

The aglio olio pasta was a lot more satisfying as the portion served was large. The pasta was nicely seasoned with enough saltiness and herby flavour to be eaten on its own.

grab that chick - cheese fries

I decided to indulge in some extra flavoured fries too. Like the other dishes, the portion of the Cheese Fries (S$6) was quite large. Each fry was coated generously in nacho cheese, and the fries themselves were ultra crispy and warm.

grab that chick - TRUFFLE FRIES

Finally, the Truffle Fries (S$6) were similarly crispy and despite its unassuming appearance, I could taste the truffle oil permeating throughout the fries. I found the Cheese Fries to be more worth the price, but I thought that the standard of the Truffle Fries were great for a coffeeshop stall.

Final thoughts

grab that chick - dishes

Grab That Chick’s dishes were a little hit-or-miss, with their pork chop and chicken cutlet being the biggest disappointments. However, their signature Fried Chicken was worth every cent, and each and every dish offered big portions that justified their prices.

Given its considerably inconvenient and hidden location, I probably wouldn’t travel all the way back to WCEGA Plaza just to order these, but I most definitely would drop by if I happened to be in the area.

Expected damage: S$7.50 – S$16.50 per pax
