Recently, the crispy hot wings from Two Wings stall in Salute kopitiam was the rage in the Singapore food scene.

Jeremy the owner, fine tuned and updated his family's recipe to create one of the best fried chicken wings that I've had anywhere (not just Singapore). 

Jeremy learnt the recipe from his granduncle who ran the popular chicken wings stall in Toa Payoh, Lorong 5 where I lived till my late teens. 1960/70s Lorong 5 was famous for it's delicious food stalls and notorious for it's violent gangs.

I am blessed that I was influenced by the food but not the gangs :P

Two Wings' chicken wings, imported from the USA and Brazil, are larger and meatier than those imported from Malaysia and other countries. 

There was hardly any grease at all on the skin or crust, or on the wooden serving board.

The chicken skin and thin crust were so crispy, they just popped off in one flaky crunchy flap from the hot tender juicy meat below.

The seasoning and marinate were light handed, so they only brought out the natural flavours of the chicken without overpowering it.

I like.

Jeremy uses the same deep frying technique to cook a few other popular dishes.

The crust was crispy and the inside was actually even more moist than the chicken wings.

Actually, I am more a chicken thigh than wing person as I found thighs meatier and juicier. But, it is harder to achieve crispiness with chicken thighs.

Kudos to Two Wings.

Here at Two Wings, we can get the best of both crispiness and juiciness.

French fries drizzled with mayonnaise and cheesy sauce.

The ketchup and chili sauce station. The freshly homemade garlicky chili sauce, especially, was superb like those from good chicken rice stalls. Even then, the fried chicken was so good, I prefer to eat it neat, without any sauce. 

Two Wings - One just isn't enough.

Jeremy is really too modest - if you are a fried food foodie, I bet you won't can't stop at two.

My appreciation to Uncle Smart for another excellent good food tip off. My thanks to Jeremy and Samantha for the invite.

Note: In my opinion, the drinks stalls here overprice their drinks.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
