Yon Yan – Delicious Chicken Wings Approved By Our Prime Minister!
This is the same chicken wings that PM Lee queued up for 30 minutes for. That was when this stall was operating at Redhill. It has since relocated to West Coast Market Square and has been renamed Yon Yan.
Well, you certainly have to be prepared to queue. We waited for about 20 minutes when we arrived at 6pm. If PM Lee could wait that long, I guess we all could.
We were lucky to receive a fresh batch of fried chicken wings. What differentiates them from other hawkers is that they fry the wings in small batches, so everyone can walk away happy with hot and crispy chicken wings. Every customer here sure had big appetites. All of them were walking away with plates piled high with chicken wings. This might explain the crazy queue.
Yon Yan has elevated good old fashioned comfort food to another level. How can you resist biting into perfectly crispy chicken wings ($1.40/pc)? The wings were shatteringly crisp, with a blistered paper–thin exterior that crackles with each bite. Inside, the meat was juicy and moist. The greasiness was present but not too overwhelming. I love it!
The texture is perfect. I wished the meat could have been more flavourful though. While it is pretty enjoyable, you might want to dip it in their watery sambal. The sweetness and mild heat from the sambal sure gave the chicken added depth. I wouldn’t mind putting on extra kilograms for wings this good.
Although fried bee hoon is one of my favourite items for breakfast, I’ll gladly eat Yon Yan’s version (60 cents/plate) any time of the day. It was cut up nicely, so we had a easy time chowing on it. The bee hoon was neither too wet nor dry.
Unlike other stores, Yon Yan only has 4 other side dishes to choose from. The ngoh xiang ($1/pc) deserves a notable mention. It has a perfectly crispy exterior, while the meat remained flavourful. The other sides, including the fish cake(60 cents/pc), sausage ($1/pc) and luncheon meat (50 cents/pc), are your run-of-the-mill ingredients you can easily find anywhere. It would be great if they offer some greens to create a more balanced meal.
I’m hankering for their fried chicken wings as I’m typing this. The food options here are limited, but I am sold on the fried goodness that is Yon Yan’s chicken wings.
