Arnold’s Fried Chicken: Halal Fried Chicken Better Than KFC

With the recent craze of fried chicken served with assorted seasoning in Singapore, Arnold's Fried Chicken remains unwavered and continues to serve traditionally battered and fried chicken. Arnold's Fried Chicken is one of the pioneer Halal eateries with more than 25 years of experience! To date, they franchised 2 outlets (Yishun and Hougang) with Paya Lebar's (in City Plaza) as its main branch. Arnold's Fried Chicken offers Combo Meal (2, 3 & 5 pax), Ala Carte (Fish & Chips as an outlier) and Sides (classic Mashed Potato and Coleslaw). Arnold's is the bomb! It is clearly better than KFC! I'm not particular about KFC's 11 spices secret recipe as Arnold's wasn't too shabby either. However, Arnold's crispy skin are simply out of the world 'light', 'crisp' and melts instantaneously liken eating shaved ice dessert, except that it's warm. Tender, flavourful and juicy, period. Truly Singapore's pride!

Arnold's Fried Chicken is a home grown, Singaporean legacy brand that specialises in 1 thing, and 1 thing only; excellent fried chicken. For over 30 years, this halal certified fast food joint has been pulling in crowds day after day, getting even more popular each year. Queues at Arnold's Fried Chicken during peak period meal times can still take up to 1 hour! I first dined at Arnold's Fried Chicken way back in 2007, but have only recently realised that I never got around to blogging about it!

Ambience at Arnold's Fried Chicken still remains more or less the same after all this time. Functional, wide tables laid out neatly within the small, cramped interior, whose walls are a garish mix of white against primary colours. It's usually noisy here, and there is also usually some minor uncleanliness similar to other fast food franchises, with tiny bits of food on the tables or floors.

Service at Arnold's Fried Chicken resembles other fast food franchises as well, it's all self-service. Ordering and payment is done outside the shop, and then you take your place in the queue. Once you get a table, a buzzer will let you know when you can collect your order. And while you're encouraged to clear your own table, staff do assist in this regard. Possibly the only interaction you'll have with staff is when placing, or collecting, your order.

Food at Arnold's Fried Chicken is focused, with the only main dish on the menu being fried chicken. The fried chicken is fantastic, with a thin, crisp, savoury skin, and juicy, tender chicken meat, served piping hot. Arnold's Fried Chicken uses fresh chickens, never frozen, which is evident in the taste. They also offer a range of side dishes and drinks. Portions are nicely sized, and prices are similar, or slightly lower, than other fast food places, budget about SGD $9 per person for a meal here.

A standard 2 Piece Meal (SGD $6.60) is served with coleslaw, fries, and 2 pieces of fried chicken. The coleslaw here differs from elsewhere because it's lighter on sauce, thus, you actually get more of the freshness and crunch of the diced vegetables. The thick cut fries have solid potato flavour, and aren't salty. The fried chicken is the star here, no matter which part you get, the meat is always juicy, tender, and piping hot. The skin is thin but crisp, pulling off easily, though the chicken fat is still present. Extremely satisfiying!
