Two Wings Pte Ltd is one of the stalls of Salut, a coffee shop in Bukit Merah. Salut isn’t your ordinary neighbourhood coffee shop, instead it’s sort of a higher class or as some people say “atas” version. The coffee shop is filled to the brim with Western cuisine, and not your usual Chinese/Asian fanfare. Two Wings Pte Ltd specializes in fried chicken and is even considered one of the best.
Salut (which is French for “Hi”) differentiates itself from other coffee shops with its unique take of stalls. Ranging from German to French cuisine, this fancy coffee shop is not only filled with western cuisine but the place brings it up a notch by having blue chequered table cloths on their tables. I do feel like Salut is very similar to PasarBella @ The Grandstand, with Salut being a more affordable variation. Most of the prices of the stalls in Salut do not go over the 20 dollar mark. The place is very popular with the working adults around the place who head there for lunch or after work. Among the stalls of Salut are –
1. Stew Küche – German/Italian cuisine, which offers Pork Knuckles, Bangers & a large array of imported Beers
2. Two Wings Pte Ltd – Western cuisine, specializes in fried chicken and wings
3. Brown Sugar by Eskimo – Drinks, includes freshly brewed teas & pressed juices
4. Jolly Bell – Desserts, Home-made Ice-cream, Tarts & Tiramisu
5. Seasalt: The Seafood Place – Fresh Seafood (Not to be confused with Sea Salt Caribbean Deli @ PasarBella)
6. 面miàn by The Travelling C.O.W – Ramen Burgers, Pasta (Physical stall of the mobile food van)
7. Immanuel French Kitchen [review soon] – French cuisine, from Chef Immanuel Tee
Now back to the food, as said earlier, Two Wings Pte Ltd specializes in fried chicken & wings. The place is owned by Jeremy Loh, whose granduncle passed his legacy to. The recipe has been fine-tuned by Jeremy himself after a short stint at a Kallang canteen stall. He also makes sure to source his chicken wings from overseas, in order to get bigger & wings that are more plump. Ingredients such as seasoning, batter & frying oil are all of high quality, to ensure each wing is fried perfectly & deliciously crisp.
What’s great about Two Wings’ fried chicken is that they are only fried upon order. This means there is a short waiting time, but it’s all for the quality of the chicken wings. You end up with succulent chicken with a hot crispy skin that has no excess oil. No more pre-fried chicken that gets double fried, what you get at Two Wings are the freshest chicken you can ever get for these delectable fried meats. Along with their main offerings of fried chicken, Two Wings also serves up sandwiches & wraps, as well as sides such as cheese fries, cheese sticks, soups & salads.
Two Wings actually closes for lunch around 3pm, but most of the stalls usually end up closing earlier. Jeremy himself was really friendly, he was actually closing up when I arrived at 2.30pm. Not wanting to turn customers away, he decided to turn on the fryer and took my order. (I do thank him for that, especially since everything else was closed.)
Worth A Visit/Revisit?
I really like the whole concept of Salut, it’s something new & different. Among the many stalls, Two Wings Pte Ltd is not to be missed. It is definitely one of the best fried chicken you get ever get in Singapore and even perhaps puts a major franchise to shame. (I’m looking at you, Colonel.) I would love to head back for their awesome fried chicken again.
