Ubi 325 Fried Chicken & Western Food: German Sausage & Mala Chicken Failed To Impress Us At Western Stall In Ubi

I was walking around the Ubi estate after the lunch crowd subsided, and spotted this non-descript corner stall that serves Western fare—Ubi 325 Fried Chicken & Western Food, located at a humble food court called Food Point.

One would dismiss this old-school Western stall like many others, but there were things on the menu that made this stall seem unique. I took the chance and tried out some of their menu items. 

The dishes that stood out for me were the German Sausage (S$7.50), Mala Chicken (S$4.50) as well as the Cod Fish Fillet (S$7). There was a classic Chicken Cutlet (S$6.50) as well, which looked huge in portion based on the illustration shown on their menu, which was displayed on the storefront.

I started off with the Cod Fish Fillet. Portion-wise, it looked promising, with two long codfish fillets, fried to an appetising golden brown. The texture of the fillet was crisp on the exterior, and was firm on the inside.

The taste of the Cod Fish Fillet was sadly a letdown. I expected a mild flavour profile when I ate it, but instead what I experienced was a tasteless fish that needed a sprinkle from salt bae himself. To be blunt, I suspected it was a pre-packed off-the-shelf codfish fillet you can purchase at your nearest supermarket.

Moving on to the next dish, the German Sausage was served with typical food court Western sides, such as baked beans, coleslaw, and fries. I had high expectations for this dish, mainly because of how it was called ‘German sausage’.  

It was a relief from the other disappointing dishes, with its salty and full-bodied taste, and the tender, juicy texture saved me from my rather disappointing experience with the food at this Western stall.

The Mala Chicken was served in a rather small plate, and for S$4.50, I couldn’t help but try to justify why was this worth ordering, given the measly portion of chicken served.  

To my dismay, the smell of mala did not hit my senses strongly like most mala dishes, and the taste did not help convince me either. The mala smell was so faint, I had to strain my sense of smell to catch only a whiff of mala for a second.  

Tastewise, it was so mediocre that my dining partner and I were baffled by the fact that the familiar numbing spiciness was absent. This dish felt like it existed just to satisfy a food trend.

Last but not least, I dove into the Chicken Cutlet. The huge portion of the chicken cutlet was definitely value-for-money, but sadly, the chicken cutlet was too crispy for my liking.

Biting into it, the chicken cutlet tasted like it had been overcooked—it was dry and the meat did not have any depth to its taste. I would have liked it to be meatier and definitely juicier. 

After much disappointment trying out the food, I have to give the benefit of the doubt that this Western stall exists purely to fill the possible void of having little to no Western stalls in the area.  

But if other hawkers out there can do a better job than this stall, why can’t they do the same?


I do not have much to rave about with regards to the stall’s food, but I suppose if you are in the area and are looking for Western fare, this will have to do.
