First of all, let me start by saying this – I don’t care for chicken wings.

Chicken wings seem to evolve into everyone’s favourite party food eventually and I never caught on. I’m the one who goes for fried rice at buffets and the hot dogs at barbecues while people tackle the seafood and chicken wings. After all, if people like me don’t exist, then the fried rice cook for what?

BUT, I will make an exception for prawn paste chicken, better known as Har Cheong Gai, to Singaporeans who know their tze char.

I think the main reason I’m okay with Har Cheong Gai, is because I’ve never had bad Har Cheong Gai. (FYI Universe, this isn’t a challenge. DO NOT test me.)

Good Har Cheong Gai is crispy yet juicy, perfectly cooked, smells like heaven and tastes like an umami bomb.

That, is what Ah Tan Wings has managed to perfect.

Ah Tan Wings The Chicken Game

Ah Tan Wings has garnered lots of attention previously, with their pop-ups at the Kranji Countryside Farmer’s Market and Civic District Festival, to name a few.

After all, if you were in a market and you smell Har Cheong Gai being cooked, you wouldn’t miss it. Har Cheong Gai is potentially one of the most fragrant fried food we have.

So because Ah Tan Wings is in high demand, the owner decided to open a stall in Yishun Hawker Centre. You can read the whole story on how he started the business here. We talk about food one. Lai, we move on to the chicken.

Now, you already know that Ah Tan Wings specialises in Har Cheong Gai and you can’t go wrong with it. When you’re there, order their Atas Wing Meal ($5.20), which comes with 2 chicken wings and 2 drumsticks, buttered rice (OMG) and a sunny side-up.

You already know I don’t like chicken wings but this one, SOLID AH. But then I hear y’all aunties behind complaining about portion. “$5 for 4 pieces only? Expensive leh. Bo hua (not worth it). ”

Auntie, you wait. That’s not all Ah Tan Wings serves. If you want more bang for your buck, then order the Atas Cutlet Meal ($6.50).

For $6.50, you get a decent sized fillet of prawn paste chicken thigh that has more flavour with every bite than their chicken wings, as well as the buttered rice and a sunny side-up.

To be honest, this one more wu hua (worth it).

If you’re looking for a smaller portion, Ah Tan also have. $3 will get you 1 portion of chicken wing and drumstick, buttered rice, and a sunny side-up.

Or if you’re with friends, then order the chicken wings a la carte at just $1.70 per piece!

Ah Tan Wings sells out quite quickly, so if you’re feeling brave and want to venture into Yishun, don’t waste the trip and stop by Ah Tan’s because where else can you get Har Cheong Gai to die for?
