Chix Hot Chicken is no ordinary fried chicken shop in Singapore. Opened recently in June, it has since welcomed an increasing number of visitors who simply want to find out what’s on its Halal menu, what’s so special about its fried chicken and to sass out the popular names associated behind this blue corner shop in Haji Lane area. If you are planning a visit (and you should!), the shop is located on Jalan Pisang where The Lab SG used to be. Taufik Batisah (winner of the first Singapore Idol) and Ismail Rawi Bober are the co-owners of this Halal food joint. The two began friendship more than a decade ago as gym buddies – a friendship which then flourished through many of similar interests, including a dream of opening a business together. From South America to Singapore Picture Credit: Chix Hot Chicken Facebook According to co-owner Ismail Rawi Bober who’s passionate about cooking, he was intrigued by Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown several years ago. When he took a family trip to Louisiana in 2013, he was fascinated by the southern hospitality and the food experience – especially the Nashville Hot Chicken. This is when and where the idea of Chix Hot Chicken originated from. 5 years later, we are glad to see the business is executed well and ready for its customers in Singapore. Unique Pepper Powders & Spice Blend Picture Credit: Chix Hot Chicken Facebook At Chix Hot Chicken, the distinguishing factors are the use of organic pepper powders and spices to bring a different kind of heat and flavour to customers in Singapore. This makes the hot chicken agonizingly delicious. You'll be amazed with this whole new side of fried chicken when you dine at Chix Hot Chicken. We like that fresh chickens are delivered daily and no preservatives or chemicals being used in the secret rub and marination. As for the Original Fried Chicken (not spicy), it is made with Soul Spice mix inspired from New Orleans. Sauce Using World Spiciest Pepper Picture Credit: Chix Hot Chicken Facebook The main reason to visit Chix Hot Chicken is to try their homemade sauces using the hottest peppers in the world as ranked by Guinness World Record called Carolina Reaper (heat measured on Scoville scale: 1,569,300 on average SHU). Also used in the sauce is Ghost Pepper (heat measured on Scoville scale:1,041,427 SHU). You can taste different levels of heat and test your limit when you order the Nashville Hot Chicken. Challenge your tastebuds with all three levels of sauces – mild, extra or insane hotness. Not too worry, order the Chix Milkshake as well. The vanilla flavour will surely go really well to cool down the heat. Freshly Fried Chicken Picture Credit: Chix Hot Chicken Facebook Not only the chicken is freshly fried upon the order of your choice, it ensures the juiciness and tenderness of the chicken. From the menu, choose from the Original (come with fries) or Nashville Hot (come with a slice of white bread and pickles) and then pick the size you fancy - Quarter (choice of thigh & leg or breast & wing), Half (thigh & leg + breast & wing), or Wings (3 whole wings). If you like burger style, pick the Soul Slider made of boneless chicken, slaw pickles, and pink mayonnaise with 2 buttered buns. If you’re on a diet and not keen on protein intake (we don’t blame you), grab the side dish of baked bean, creamy tangy slaw and some fries. Sunday Waffle If the above is not enough to entice your appetite for a kick-ass finger-licking fried chicken, come on Sunday for their waffle as a weekend treat. Dine with choice of Quarter or Wing fried chicken plus the waffle - comes handy with honey butter. Funky Ambience Picture Credit: Chix Hot Chicken Facebook Feel the love and passion when you dine in the shop to enjoy the freshly fried hot chicken off the fryer while you marvel at the art work by talented artist Timothy Stewart Shaw. Expect cool beat of the music in the air to make your dining experience a satisfying one. Why wait? Come down to Chix Hot Chicken now. The Halal hot spicy fried chicken will surely challenge your tastebuds.

Hong Kong is a well-known global Asian hub with a beautiful harbor that attracts many visitors. Due to increasing numbers of Muslim tourists, the Hong Kong Tourism Board began recognizing Muslim needs, playing an important role in creating a hospitable Muslim-friendly environment. While we know the Hong Kong dining scene is alive and recognised at the forefront of culinary standards worldwide, Halal food places are rather limited. However, in spite of this, the few restaurants available are not lacking behind in terms of taste and flavour. Despite being a predominantly Chinese city, Islam has been practiced in Hong Kong for more than 175 years since the British Hong Kong era. Today, about 300,000 Muslims live in Hong Kong, coming from a diverse background including Muslims from south of Mainland China, the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, especially Indonesian Foreign Domestic Workers (FDWs) in particular. Muslim travelers can explore the delicious cuisine in areas where Halal food is commonly available such as around where mosques are situated (Wan Chai, Nathan Road in Kowloon) and where Muslim ethnic groups in Hong Kong reside. The Hong Kong Halal food and restaurant guide below covers eateries in the Hong Kong Island, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Mongkok, Hong Kong Airport, and tourist attractions such as Disneyland. This guide excludes Kebab House and Ebeneezer chains which scatter around Hong Kong, as well as Indian & Pakistani shops. In this guide, finding Halal food in multi-ethnic Hong Kong means you can explore not just Halal Canton cooking, but also Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Indonesian cuisine. Alternatively, there are plenty of vegetarian and vegan joints such as cafes, Buddhist and Indian restaurants which can be found there, other than the recommendations below. As a note, please be advised that major international food chains in Hong Kong (KFC, McDonald's) are not Halal certified. Be mindful that you need to know the unspoken rule of dining out in Hong Kong - be prepared to share tables if you happen to dine in the local outlets. Knowing a few Cantonese phrases, such as Ngóh m̀h'sihk jyū (I don’t eat pork) or Ngóh jihnghaih sihk chīngjān yéh (I only eat Halal food) may come handy!
