This Famous Chicken Wing Stall Closed Down After 40 Years At St. Nicks – Now They’re Back In RP
Former ex-students of St Nicholas Girl’s School will fondly remember the crispy and juicy chicken wings that was sold by Madam Lim Meow Lang – or more fondly known as Auntie Meow Lang.
Generations of St Nicks girls have grown up eating the chicken wings fried by Auntie Meow Lang, who started the stall in 1972 when the school was still located at Victoria Street.
Sadly, Auntie Meow passed on in 2014 at the age of 82, closing the shutters shortly after the implementation of Healthy Meals in School Programme as selling chicken wings without the crispy skin was just not the same.
But Auntie Meow Lang’s 31-year-old grandson, Mr James Ngiam, is now keen to revive his family recipe and put their delicious chicken wings back on the menu.[caption id="attachment_37984" align="aligncenter" width="6000"] Image Credit: Discover SG[/caption]
40 Year Old History
Running his own Western food stall ‘Coal 3606‘ at The Lawn Food Court in Republic Polytechnic, James has been helping his family run the stall and learning the recipe of the chicken wings.
Armed with a background in Culinary Skills from Shatec and working as a chef in various restaurants, James grew up with a passion for cooking and it was only natural for him to continue the family’s business.[caption id="attachment_37985" align="aligncenter" width="6000"] Image Credit: Discover SG[/caption]
Now, we’ve all had our fair share of fried chicken wings. From undercooked chicken wings at BBQ gatherings to beautiful golden chicken wings from Old Chang Kee, they’re a snack that can never go wrong.
It’s a snack that’s loved by many. So if you’re wondering what’s so good about these supposedly mind-blowing fried chicken wings, let us tell you why.
“Last time, when my grandma fry the chicken, the whole canteen could smell it,” he laughed as he shared with us his fond memories of growing up in the canteen of St Nicks.[caption id="attachment_37982" align="aligncenter" width="6000"] Image Credit: Discover SG[/caption]
And we couldn’t deny it either. When James started frying a fresh batch of chicken wings for us, we couldn’t help but to stand near the stall just to catch a whiff of the fried chicken goodness.
Each piece of chicken wing is priced from $1.30 – $1.50 – depending on the weight of the wings. He has kept the prices of the chicken wings the same as those sold at his grandmother’s stall, just before it closed.[caption id="attachment_37986" align="aligncenter" width="6000"] Image Credit: Discover SG[/caption]
The chicken wings are only sold in one flavour to honour the original marinade passed down by Auntie Meow Lang. Although the recipe has tweaked slightly over the years as our elders only knew how to “agak-agak” the recipe then, it was never the same as the one made by his grandmother.
James shared how the chicken wings made by his grandmother were sweeter whereas his mother’s chicken wings were crispier. James eventually found the perfect balance to ensure that the current generation would love and appreciate the chicken wings without straying too far from the original recipe.
We were impressed by how fat and juicy the chicken wings were. Each wing was lightly battered and was of course, fried to a nice golden brown.[caption id="attachment_37990" align="aligncenter" width="480"] GIF Credit: Discover SG[/caption]
We also loved how the chicken wings easily tore apart and crackled at first bite. The wings were crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside – just like how we all like our wings.
But what truly shook us the most, was how well-balanced the flavours of the wings were. We love that the chicken wings had a hint of sweetness to it which made it completely addictive!
However, you can’t find these amazing chicken wings on the menu displayed at the stall. Now that you know this special item, grab your friends and order their wings if you’re ever looking for a quick snack.[caption id="attachment_37987" align="aligncenter" width="5750"] Image Credit: Discover SG[/caption]
They sell several other items on the menu such as Au Sirlion Steak which is cooked over a special griller that uses coal for just $5.80 and Grilled Chicken for only $3.80![caption id="attachment_37983" align="aligncenter" width="6000"] Processed with VSCO with a6 preset[/caption]
As part of the RP stall’s official opening on September 22, James hosted a special event for former and current St Nicks girls, as well as their friends and family. He was happy to learn that many former students were able to relive their childhood days through their favourite school snack.
After trying these wings for ourselves, we finally understood why our friends from St Nicks raved so much about them. If you’re a chicken wing junkie or simply want a taste of nostalgia for old times’ sake, check out the fried chicken wings from Coal 3606 to truly believe it!

East Meets West At Birdfolks, Where American Fried Chicken Is Served With Kopi
There has been a recent spate of Korean-style fried chicken restaurants opening in Singapore. From 4Fingers to Chir Chir, sometimes all we want is just to have good ol’ American-style fried chicken.
Crispy, juicy, and greasy. That’s the way fried chicken should be, unclouded by a myriad of gimmicky flavours.
At Birdfolks, that is what they are serving – good ol’ American-style fried chicken.[caption id="attachment_30504" align="aligncenter" width="1080"] Image Credit: @birdfolks.sg[/caption]
Leave It To The Birdfolks To Serve Good Fried Chicken
Located at 1 West Coast Drive, their Signature Chicken Rice Box ($9.90) includes edamame, sweet corn, cherry tomatoes, their house recipe boneless fried chicken and comes topped with a sous vide egg![caption id="attachment_30458" align="aligncenter" width="1080"] Image Credit: @birdfolks.sg[/caption]

Choose from Original, Cilantro Lime, Tomato Oregano, and the recommended Garlic Butter rice.

If you’re looking for a more traditional chicken meal, try the Thigh & Drum ($12.90) which includes 2 pieces of their signature American-styled brined fried chicken, served with fries.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know Cha Tra Mue has been making waves in Singapore with the launch of their rose tea, which comes in three flavours: Rose Milk Tea, Honey Rose Tea and Lychee Rose Tea.
Their cups are all very Instagram-worthy, and we think they deserve the title of “Bangkok’s prettiest tea”.[caption id="attachment_29167" align="aligncenter" width="592"] Image Credit: chatramuesg Instagram[/caption]
Of the three drinks, the hot favourite is the Rose Milk Tea ($4.50) – a cup of fragrant Thai milk tea that has a faint taste of rose and a whiff of floral fragrance.

Antoinette serves an exquisite Superlova ($10.70) – Rose finger sponge cake with raspberry jelly, raspberry caviar & crumble, which is delectably lifted by a yuzu cream. They gel seamlessly together into a pleasantly creamy treat with light floral notes. The taste is neither overpowering nor elusive – truly a rose creation that’s deserving of admiration.
The ornate pastry is served with a Rose macaron on top, which consists of two light and crisp cookie shells sandwiching a delicate rose buttercream filling. While great with the rest of the cake, you’ll love it on its own too!

These rose creations are not only easy on the eyes, they also play well with the taste buds.
The great thing about rose is that because it’s light, it doesn’t overpower the other flavours it’s brought together with. If you love your millennial pink and love a light, floral flavour to go with your food or drink, these are a must-try.

KFC Just Released A Double Steamed Chicken Burger And We Hope To God They’re Trolling Us
If it’s not already obvious, Singaporeans LOVE their fast food.
Last month, Singaporeans went Nasi Lemak Burger-crazy when McDonald’s released the limited edition burger. In fact, Singaporeans loved it so much that McDonald’s sold out of these local-inspired burgers in less than 2 weeks!
Clearly, we take our fast food very seriously.
The New Burger In Town
Recently, KFC released a teaser image on its Facebook page – the silhouette of a burger.
The image was simply captioned “Are you down for a new version of an all-time favourite?”
Netizens quickly began speculating, and many of them guessed that this signified the return of the all meat, no bun Zinger Double Down Burger.[caption id="attachment_29127" align="aligncenter" width="540"] Image Credit:
What… The… Hell… Right?
Similar, and yet very much unlike the beloved Zinger Double Down Burger, the Double Steamed Chicken Burger comprises two steamed chicken fillets, sauerkraut coleslaw, spicy pickled cucumber and sambal honey sauce.
This news was (understandably) met with fury from fans of KFC, with commenters being quick to remind the fast food chain what the F in its name stood for; “fried” chicken is what KFC is known for, not, well, steamed chicken.
Is KFC Trolling Us All?
Of course, there is a shred hope that this is all just a joke and that KFC is just trolling us all – at least, that’s what we hope is going on here.
What do you guys think? Is this a joke? Is KFC for real? Let us know in the comments!
