mehhhhhhh chicken up quality has dropped like a bomb. So far, I stand by Arnold's. Jollibee is pretty good too though it can be dry at times. Their spicy is nice.

Other then that, most of the fried chicken is really just meh. Don't defer much in taste.

Though I had the Hot Chix's dry rubbed chicken(which I don't think they did the nashville chicken correctly) and it's.....not that great. Actually prefer their wet ones.

what i like is their batter not thick like gcp makeup but their chicken abit lacking in seasoning/flavour.

another plus point usually their chicken is pipping hot unless u order food delivery.

i didn't know their quality dropped.

why is it dropped ?

at least chicken up is order to cook.. no darth vader chicken like kfc.

to me fried chicken no pipping hot no shiok.

wanted to try nashville, i never got the chance to try the original nashville back in US anyway.

i don't like wet ones cos its like those buffalo wings ? drench in sauce. don't know is eat sauce or eat chicken.

i would give dry rub a chance.

compared to USA, singapore don't have much of a fried chicken culture..

pinoy chicken quite small, can whack 8 pieces no problem.. when the chicken is not hot, their spicy chicken is cmi, in fact any fried chicken that is not hot is cmi.

The dry rub for hot chicx is literally powdering chili powder on the chicken after it's finished frying. You say nice or not?

The original uses hot sauce, chili power and the oil used to cook the chicken mixture and brushed on the chicken.

The former is dry AF while the latter has the spicy kick and is not dry due to the oil.

Of course we are talking bout fried chicken so healthy should be the last thing on your mind.

No choice.. that's the closest thing we have to the original Nashville.

eat sauce or eat wings? better than buffalo's wings drenched in hot sauce bah.

Itís not that cheap but compared to KFC is almost the same price. At least their chicken is really fresh and Iíve never been disappointed with their chicken.

not really cheap though..
