Barbecued Chicken Wings, Jalan Kampung Lapan

Two lady friends of mine tipped me off about this place that sells kick ass barbecued chicken wings at Kampung Lapan. Again, the hunt for better food never stops and so, Jian and I ended up venturing into the deeper part of Kampung Lapan to search for the said barbecued chicken wings stall.

It got deeper and darker as we drove along Jalan Kampung Lapan and there was no sign of the said stall. It was until we saw a relatively big crowd waiting outside a corner lot shop. Upon closer look, I saw the barbecued chicken wings stall. Ha!

We sat down and ordered our drinks. While waiting, I couldn’t help it but to snap away just so that I can have more pictures to show in my blog. It wasn’t an ideal lighting environment as the bulb is a major distraction and also caused uneven white balance throughout the picture. My skill isn’t that advance to “fix” such situation.

We waited for quite a while before our chicken wings arrived as there were orders that kept coming non-stop. However, when it came, I sure heck didn’t have any more “heart” to take pictures as I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into those crispy and barbecued till golden brown coloured chicken wings.

Honestly, I never like chicken wings because it’s very difficult to eat, with all the big and small bones holding just that tiny piece of meat. It never gives me the satisfaction like how I bite off a huge piece of meat from the chicken breast and tear it apart nothing but like a carnivore. Yet this chicken wing was so delicious that I didn’t mind the fuss at all.

Unlike KL’s barbecued chicken wings that usually are the sweet / honey type, theirs are the slight salty kind. The meat was grilled just nice, tenderly and juicy. The outer skin, marinated with I-don’t-know-what, it was a little salty and had this really fragrant aroma and “essence” / oil. Pretty sure my mum could replicate the marination but definitely not the barbecuing part. There must be something in it that made it different from other barbecued chicken wings stalls.

This has to be one of the best BBQ chicken wings I have ever tasted in Malacca town.

To go there, find your way to Jalan Tun Perak. When you see the Nissan showroom or the Prudential signboard at the junction, turn into the junction and go straight until you see Sekolah Menengah Tun Tuah. On your left, there’s a corner shop lot that has only three stalls operating at night. The barbecued chicken wings stall is just in front of you. Haha! Don’t go on Mondays though, they are closed.

Oh oh! If you are dropping by, spend a few minutes observing the old uncle who makes wantan noodle. It’s interestingly funny. Haha!

    Is it? I just passed by yesterday when I went to Malacca.
    I stayed in a friend of my grandma house. But they didn’t tell us that their barbecued chicken wings are deliciousD:
    Ya, exactly the same road - Jalan Kampung Lapan, exactly the junction where the Nissan showroom located, and of course exactly the uncle.

    Xin : It’s time to hunt for some good chicken wings in KL eh?

    Che-Cheh : But then some chicken wings are too good to resist.

    I guess that I am getting sick and tired about seeing posts on the internet about “chicken wings”, a dish that was developed in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA in Buffalo, New York, at the ANCHOR BAR.

    Why can’t you people come up with something original instead of attempting to COPY our food?

    ^ why so serious? if life is about complaining, then we’ll be complaining why Singapore has their own version of Malaysian food, and that brings back to, most of our food are influenced by so many cultures that you cannot tell which is which.

    If we want to argue on the origins of chicken wings, we might as well credit the person who started fire; without fire, there won’t be bbq or anything that’s cooked in the first place.

    Now, that’s “original”.

    Okay. those chicken wings’ looks so delicious, esp when you’re down with flu and cough. =_=; sigh.

    Its near where I used to live 8 years back. :) Nice place, lots of food and kampung-ish also. But nice lah. :) Except the road is just too narrow.

    Louise Wyers : What makes you think that it was the USA and to be specific, Anchor Bar to create this particular dish? Any proofs and evidence to support your claims? If you don’t have any, you might want to relinquish your so called senior advisor post in that (if it ever exist) club.

    Felicia : Some people are just too stuck up, let them be.

    Ken : I shall take note of that and give it a try.

    Surfnux : And kinda creepy as well. Haha!

    Eh, where is this. The chicken wings do look good. I used to like it a lot but nowadays hardly get to eat it so the cravings for it also died off.

    Yan Er : Hehe. Maybe we will bump into each other there. Haha!

    Cutie : Malacca. Hehe. Well, when do you want to come try these and get your cravings started again?

    Ya, this one is good so far in Melaka. You should try and compare the other chicken wing stall in Malim Jaya. A corner coffee shop ( forget the name of the shop ) located right at the heart of pasar malam every Friday. Behind the Malim Food Court. To me, that is equally good also. Another one in Jalan Tengkera ( opposite the old Oriental Cinema ), also good. One day should have buy from this three shops and taste it one by one to check out which one is the best !!!

    Hardluck : I doubt I will go as far as Malim Jaya just for chicken wings though. Thanks for the heads up about the one at Jalan Tengkera though. Gonna check it out one of these days.
