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!
