“Everyone loves fried chicken. Don't ever make it. Ever. Buy it from a place that makes good fried chicken.” -Nora Ephron, filmmaker and writer-

There is just something about good tasting chicken that just hits the spot – whether fried, grilled, steam or roasted. With the right recipe, you will be treated to a decadent treat of juicy flavourful meat and crispy or tender skin. It’s no wonder that chicken is a staple in many Malaysian households, and with blockbuster season rolling in, there is no better time to grab a tasty treat, especially on the weekends before a movie.

Let out a sigh of contentment as you envision your chicken prepared exactly the way you like it – so juicy, tender and succulent from the first bite. For some, fried chicken could easily be the definition of “soul food” whilst some may like roasted or even steamed – we all have our special favourites and much like the movies that we all enjoy, are blockbusters in their own way. To set you in the right mood for blockbuster season, GrabFood has some of these chicken specialists lined up for your enjoyment and munching pleasure.


Critic Consensus:  “Loved by the whole family, cause it’s bigger and better.”

Texas Chicken has a menu lineup that promises a thrilling journey for any chicken lover. Much like Michael Bay, big name Texas Chicken exploded onto the Malaysian fast food scene with its main breakout star – the chicken with its moist meat and flavourful crunchy skin. Critics just can’t have enough of it! Texas  Chicken keeps things interesting all year around its innovative approach, introducing a new chicken flavour every few months, and maintaining quality by choosing the biggest and best pieces of chicken available to keep you coming back for more.

Critic Consensus: “Classic fried chicken at its best – LFC stirs up nostalgia of good old fashioned home-cooked chicken. No muss, no fuss.”

An indie fried chicken expert gone major, Lim Fried Chicken started out as a simple stall in Wong Soon Kee coffee shop in Subang Jaya SS14. The star of the show is its crispy chicken thigh that once drew in daily teatime queues to its stall. Its skin leans on the saltier side, perfect to eat with a helping of steamed rice and vegetables or very interestingly, chee cheong fun.

Critic Consensus: “When in doubt, go back to basics and The Chicken Rice Shop has that down in spades with its generous portions of chicken rice and crunchy taugeh!”

Inspired by a family long recipe for Hainanese Chicken Rice and treasured recipes from Penang, The Chicken Rice Shop nails their menu with the variety of cooking styles for the versatile chicken. Be it steamed, roasted, honey barbeque or fried, there is a chicken dish for different occasions. If rice doesn’t do it for you,  The Chicken Rice Shop also has a plethora of local dishes such as curry laksa, nyonya pai tee and Penang famous chicken rolls aka loh bak.

Critic Consensus:  “A dash of K-drama to spice things up.”

Annyeonghaseyo! The Café Chicken in Desa Sri Hartamas has Korean fried chicken formula down to a tee and amps it up with a dash of soy or sweet and sour. If you’re looking for more kick or a plot twist, then opt for the fried chicken with melted cheese. This little indie café is not without its own cult following. The place is run by a Korean couple so you know it’s authentic and as good as it gets.

Critic Consensus:  “Plot twist with its choice of sauces!”

Keeping up with the trends, Butter Chicken goes beyond butter and chicken and has created the salted yolk sauce to give fans that oozing goodness to lap up with their decadent deep-fried chicken breast. Indomie lovers will love the Indomie option to swap out with the rice.  By keeping its plot and offerings simple, Butter Chicken can really focus on doing what it does best. Feeding the souls of many fried chicken fans.
