This New Halal Fried Chicken Joint Serves 3 Levels Of Heat, Cooked With The World's Spiciest Peppers

Taufik Batisah has grown to become a household name for most Singaporeans. Asides from being the winner of the first season of Singapore Idol, he was every girl’s crush growing up (well, for me at least).

There have been plenty of rumours surrounding the opening of this eatery and the wait is finally over. You can now enjoy Nashville style fried chicken from Chix Hot Chicken.

Can Sing, Can Dance, Can Sell Chicken

Inspired by South America’s love for fried chicken, Chix Hot Chicken specialises in Nashville Style Hot Chicken served with the world’s spiciest peppers. The chicken is served atop a slice of white bread and pickle chips.

The options come in Quarter ($9.90) with a choice of thigh and leg or breast and wing; Half ($18.90) or 3 Whole Wings ($10.90).

You can also choose your spice level – Mild Hotness, Extra Hotness or Insane Hotness.

Now here’s the fun part. If you think you can handle your spice well, try out the “Extra Hotness” level first. The chicken skin is typically rubbed with ground cayenne peppers, however, in this case – ghost peppers.

The Ghost Pepper exploded in popularity on YouTube and other social sites where pepperheads eat whole Ghost Peppers as part of a challenge. The ghost pepper is rated at more than 1 million Scoville Heat Units (SHUs), enough to make a grown man cry.

If you’re someone who knows no fear and thinks, “Aiya, ghost pepper no kick. Give me something crazier.”

Then you’ll love the “Insane Hotness”. The chicken skin is seasoned with Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pepper, which typically rates at 2 million SHUs.

If you plan on trying this out, then we highly recommend taking an MC from work because God knows what’s that going to do to your intestines. If you’re feeling bored with life and you need something to spice things up, then we dare you to take up the Insane Hotness challenge.

Tell us how it goes for you!

If you’re more of a “no thanks, I’m good without spice” kind of person, you can get the The Original ($9.90, $10.90, $18.90) – buttermilk fried chicken made from a mixture of spices inspired from New Orleans. Your stomach will definitely thank you for this.

You can also enjoy their chicken in a burger form. Their Soul Sliders ($12) comes with a juicy boneless chicken served with slaw, pickles and pink mayo sandwiched between two buttered buns.

Also, if you’re looking for a Sunday brunch date, Chix Hot Chicken serves Chicken and Waffles ($14.90) as well! Do take note that they’re only available on Sundays.

If you’re looking for an eatery to hit up this weekend, then this is the best place to enjoy hearty and delicious fried chicken with your friends.

Who knows, you might even bump into Taufik Batisah while you’re enjoying your fried chicken!

Do note that they’re still in their soft launch phase. They have limited supply every day so you better head down early if you want to get your hands on them. If you’re running out of luck, don’t fret. Chix Hot Chicken will officially open on 19 June which means there’ll be more fried chicken for us to enjoy.
