Cantonese Delights – Sinfully Delicious Fried Chicken Cutlet Curry Noodles
Fried chicken is amazing. So is curry. Fried chicken and curry together? Now, that is an irresistible combination.
It is no wonder the stall selling this magic combination is known as “Cantonese Delights”. Fried chicken and curry sauce sit atop egg noodles which trap the fragrant and slightly sweet curry — a delight it surely is.
Cantonese delights (#02-03) is a stall located on the second floor of Hong Lim Market and Food Centre. Take the stairs up, and simply head towards the stall with a snaking queue.
Their famous Curry Chicken Cutlet Noodles ($4) is a must-order. You can choose between fried chicken cutlet or curry chicken drumstick. For those who do not appreciate spicy food, you are in for a treat. The fragrant and thick curry is slightly sweet, not very spicy, and rather “lemak”, which may be attributed to the copious amount of coconut milk added.
We also ordered the Chicken Feet Noodles ($3.50) which came with a huge chicken feet. In fact, huge is an understatement. It was GIGANTIC. What made the chicken feet different from what you get elsewhere was the generous amount of meat clinging onto the chicken claw! This is pretty rare — I haven’t seen such a meaty chicken feet before! For just $3,50, the portion is pretty value for money. However, the noodles and sauce had a slightly floury aftertaste, which I did not fancy.
For those looking to add extra flavour to their noodles, condiments such as green chilli, red chilli and pork lard are available at the stall front. While the pork lard looks inviting, it was a little “lou feng”(not very crispy).
In conclusion, Cantonese Delights is worth a try if you are in the vicinity. The affordable and hearty options are great for those looking for a little sinful indulgence.
