That's Some Good Chicken

Every Monday & Thursday night Catherine and I head over to Xinsheng Rd., where our favorite chicken place happens to be. They serve up chicken and fried yams encased in a sinful batter. The chicken is cut up into bite-sized pieces. I eat/buy so much that the husband and wife that own the place throw in free food & tea every time we go!...lol. Here are a few photos of where the chicken magic happens:

These folks are great. The wife always has an ear-to-ear smile when she sees us. Catherine usually chats with them, leaving me in the dark...lol. You can see their very pretty daughter in the background of the photo.

I always get two large orders of chicken and a large order of yams. They know how much I love this stuff so they always cram as much as will fit in the bags...an incredible bargain. We usually don't go until about 10p.m., so Catherine only nibbles on a piece or two. She has this thing where she doesn't eat after 7p.m., probably a good idea. This great little place is located in an alley just off of Xinsheng Rd, about 3 minutes from the MRT.

I have a friend with great noodle shop. I have brought many friends there. He is always giving me some extras. He is talented in coming up with odd pao tsai dishes.
