One of my favourite things to eat is Fried Chicken. It might not be the healthiest food to eat, but the moment Juli asked me out for Fried Chicken, I could not say no!
Arnold’s is located on the 2nd floor of City Plaza – which is quite recognizable by its very retro sign at the top of the yellow and orange building.
We went up to the second floor where there were already a few people who were queuing up for their food.
The place looked looked nothing extra-ordinary. There was no decoration to speak of, with simple orange plastic chairs and tables. Nevertheless it was full of diners enjoying their meal. This was a popular place!
We queued up for a bit and upon reaching the counter, we took a look at the menu before finally deciding on the 2 person combo meal. We made an order to the enthusiastic crew at the counter.
After waiting for a few minutes for a table to be cleared, we eventually had a table. The food took another few minutes later.
We had the side dishes first. The side dishes were pretty good. I’ve always liked coleslaw and this one was no exception.
As I’m not big on fries, we managed to change it with mashed potato. Juli thought that the mashed potato was very good. The consistency was thick and tasted robust with the flavourful gravy.
I’m not fond of fried potatoes, but the criss-cross fries were pretty good being crispy and hot.
I did not touch the fried buns, so I’m not sure how this tastes like.The idea of eating bread fried in oil was a little scary to me.
But the highlight of the dinner was definitely the fried chicken!
Its not exactly fast food restaurant here, having to wait for at least 10 minutes for your food to arrive. But when it does arrive, you would have been glad that you waited!
My chicken was wonderful! It came out hot and delightfully crispy. The meat was tender and you could taste how amazingly fresh it was.
My only qualm is that our meal isn’t exactly cheap having to spend about $10 per person, especially when the presentation of the food could be be much nicer.
Regardless, Arnold’s was one of the best fried chicken that I ever had.
