A unique place to chill out

I found Chuck's about 2 years ago and it became my favorite place to chill-out in Singapore. It combines a couple of unique features that makes it stand out: its setting in the nature along Portsdown road, the friendly staff in this family-run buiness and the food & drinks.

The people at Chuck's are constantly looking at new things and everytime you come back they have a new drink or food item to try. It is always a pleasant surprise when you return.

The most outstanding food on the menu are the chicken wings. They are huge and actually wings: The upper and lower "arm" together. Not what other places sell you as a "wing": either the upper OR the lower part. But this is not the most important part of Chuck's wings. 

At the beginning of the 1990s I had the change to eat the original chicken wings from Buffalo, NY. Chicken wings are sometimes called Buffalo wings in the US not because buffalos have wings but because the they were invented in Buffalo.

The original is basked in a thin sauce with varying degrees of spicyness. They are served with cereal & carrot sticks together with blue cheese or ranch dressing. For me, this is still the standard. 

At Chuck's they are basked in a thicker BBQ style sauce with 10 different degress of spicyness. I understand that a few people have actually tried 10 but I find 3 is best balance between yummy and invigorating. The celery and carrot sticks are crunchy and come with ranch sauce. Blue cheese is available on request. 6 are enough for a single person as starter.

Chuck's wings are the closed to the original in Singapore. Everytime I come across a place that boasts "best wings in town" I give it a try. They are usually quite different from the original: crunchy and not spicy. For me, Chuck's simply makes the best chicken wings in Singapore.

Other noteworthy items on the American-style menu are the burgers, nachos and steaks. The salads are huge and fresh. 

Their tugged away location at Portsdown road is not easy to reach by public transport but it is a breeze by car as they have a huge parking lot in front.

Chance upon this gem in 2012 and have been going back to there regularly since. Have been bringing a lot of friends and all have been impressed by the food and ambience of the place. Besides it being in a more out of place area, where public transport options are limited, it is still worth going.

All the negative reiviews that are written thus far, none are experience at any one point in my last 2 years of patroning this place, at least 15 times in the last 2 years. Their food is indeed good and value for money. When it is really packed, sometimes they may be abit slower in taking orders and stuff, which is understandable and reasonable.

Will definitely recommend people to check out this place.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
