If like me, you stay in the East and love eating hawker food, then you must have heard of this hawker called Chomp Chomp Food Centre. Why I’m saying so is because I have asked many of my friends who are staying in the West and many of them have told me that they have never heard of it so I think Chomp Chomp Food Centre must be really an ‘Eastern Thing’.

Well it’s like my ‘Western’ friends were telling me about this famous Nasi Lemak stall called Fong Seng near Clementi that every people who stayed in the West would have heard of and yet I haven’t a clue what they’re talking about.

Now if you happen to be staying in the West and haven’t heard of Chomp Chomp Food Centre, it’s actually located in Serangoon Gardens surrounded by private estates and was once really really famous for food like Char Kway Teow, Satay Bee Hoon, Chicken Wing, Hokkien Mee, Fish Porridge(grainy type), Ngor Hiang, and all kind of BBQ seafoods.

Since the mid 90s, the food center underwent several upgradings and the thing I want to say is that the food there seem to be deteriorating each and every single time they finished a renovation. Ok now it’s not bad as in the same food stall that were once famous for whatever food isn’t dishing out the same quality stuff. It’s just that every time they reopened after upgrading works, there would be some stalls that pop up somehow somewhere within the food centre trying to sell the same thing, obviously trying to steal a share of the monopoly.

Now this is not a problem in the beginning because as a frequent eater there I can recognise the original seller so I would still go to the original stall. The problem begins when somehow sometime, the original stall starts to disappear and then those people like me whom goes to Chomp Chomp for those original stalls and found that they are no longer there, would simply be scattered around and those copycat stalls would scramble for these customers. The thing is this kind of competition yields no winner and no true successor can be thrown up but instead what would be produced are a whole lot of mediocre ones trying to relive some kind of glory that belong to the past. Maybe not all cases of food centre’s renovation are like that but at least that’s the story of Chomp Chomp.

If you’re looking for a wide recommendation at Chomp Chomp from me, I’m going to disappoint you in this post because I’m only going there once a year now and the only reason I’m going there now is because the chicken wings I liked there is still the best I have eaten all my life.

Chicken Wing: 7.25/10 ★★★★★★★¼☆☆ 

Ok chicken wings are something so commonly sold everywhere and I think a lot of places have some good chicken wings but really, at times the stall will need a good flow of customers to ensure that what you get on your plate is really something that is so fresh that you can call it above the rest. So my point is there are many good chicken wing stalls but at times when they suffer a drop in customers, you end up getting something that is being grilled the night before or roasted 10 hours earlier. So how does a chicken wing that is being roasted and hanged on the skewer for 10 hours taste like? Well it taste dry and just seem to have it’s juices grilled dry. Now that is becoming a norm in many many chicken wing stalls but this stall in Chomp Chomp that I used to frequent and still frequent often nowadays has never let me down – not even once.

Still selling at $1 a piece, they really can give you something that is been grilled to perfection in taste, flavour and juiciness. Well I’m suspecting they got a really kickass secret recipe for it’s marinating but otherwise the constant flow of customers really cleared their stock on skewer fast enough that in all my visits there, I have always got fresh and really juicy ones. So that’s why they are for me still one of the best if not the best Chicken Wing stall around.

Price: $8.90

Recommendation: Chicken wing though they have other things like spring chicken etc.

Conclusion: My favourite chicken wing place simply because they have a good flow of customers and that ensured their stock is replaced often enough. Otherwise the marinate is also quite good, you get the feeling that it had been left enough time in the marinate for the flavour to be infused not only into the meat but also the bones!

Likes: Fresh and terrific marinating. I’m suspecting more than the usual oyster sauce, sesame oil, black soy sauce blah blah. I think they use a lot of 5 spice powder in it but yet the flavour isn’t too empowering. Just nice!

Dislikes: The only thing worth eating in the hawker so it’s a bit of an effort to go all the way there to just eat this.

There used to be 2 stalls at the front which were pretty good.I remembered they have all different kind of otahs like prawns sotong or crab otahs but they are no longer there. The last time I went i ordered stingray which cost $8 and it only come a small pathetic portion which was hardly enough for 1 person to eat. Which stall did you tried? Care to do a review next time? :P

Even though I stay near to CHOMP CHOMP, I seldom go there for their food as my friends also told me that the standard dropped big time. very difficult to find a table if u want to sit near to the roadside area.

I usually go to Kovan or AMK for the HO LIAO.
