I was craving for fried chicken so I headed down to 4Fingers , and boy I was surprised to see that the spot where 4Fingers used to be is now housing another fried chicken restaurant called Sticky Wings.
Sticky Wings is Singapore’s first Asian inspired fried chicken chain.
Looks interesting, let’s check it out.
The menu is divided into 5 sections: Wings & Drumsticks, Burger, Xtras, Beverages and Sides. There are not many items on the menu at Sticky Wings.
We Meet Again (Rendang Bolognese Fries) [$6.50] is the Asian-inspired version of the popular chilli beef fries. The cheese and rendang works surprisingly well. You can taste the aroma and sweetness of the rendang and the cheese gives it a nice – for lack of a better word – cheesiness.
There are various wings and drumsticks combinations to choose from Black Belt (1 Drumstick + 3 2-Joint Wings) [$8.20 Ala Carte, $10.70 Combo], Level Up (4 Drumsticks + 8 2-Joint Wings) [$28 Ala Carte, $38 Combo], Knockout (6 2-Joint Wings) [$8.50 Ala Carte, $11 Combo] and Drumchunks (3 Drumsticks) [$9 Ala Carte, $11.50 Combo]. Combo comes with regular soft drink and choice of side (top-up $0.50 for a large soft drink).
There are 3 sauces to choose from: Naked, Sticky Kecap Manis and Spicy Flamin’. Naked is original, Sticky Kecap Manis is Sticky Wings’ version of Korean soy garlic and
Spicy Flamin’ is really flaming spicy. Although the picture says that it’s only 2 level spiciness, it’s so hot that I can’t taste anything else other than my numb mouth after eating it, try it at your own risk.
I am a fan of anything with salted egg so I got the Chicken Magnet (Salted Egg Katsu Chicken Burger) [$7.90 Ala Carte, $10.40 Combo] although Lemongrass Chicken Burger is the signature burger. A piece of the fried chicken cutlet, lettuce and salted egg sauce is sandwiched between two doughnuts. Yes, you read that right. Two doughnuts with icing sugar. It’s an interesting idea but the combination does not work as well as it sounds. The chicken cutlet itself is a little overcooked and does not have the crispiness that I was expecting, the salted egg sauce is way too floury and the doughnuts are too soft to hold all the items together.
There is a small retail section at the left-hand side of the restaurant that sells Artisanal Thick-Cut Salted Egg Potato Chips, NU Smoothie drinks, Season Kuih Lapis, Coco Water and bottled mineral water.
The menu on Sticky Wings’ website reveals that there are supposed to be breakfast items such as Pancake Muffin and Sausage Petty Muffin and local delights such as Bee Hoon/Nasi Lemak with Chicken Wing/Fish Fillet/Chicken Katsu, but I don’t see these on the menu in the restaurant as yet. I guess they have just started out and more items will be introduced into the menu slowly.
