We Tried SG’s First Milo-Coated Fried Chicken And Here’s What We Thought

Milo is such a well-loved flavour that it's been prepared in so many ways - from popular beverages like Milo Dinosaur and Milo Ice Kepal to absurd combinations like the Milo Cheese Durian drink ? It's no secret that we love Milo too much that we just have to add it in every single thing! Remember a few weeks ago when milo-coated chicken went viral in Malaysia? We're pretty sure all you Milo fans in Singapore were feeling slightly jealous and you wished you could have it in Singapore as well.

Yes, they were the ones who brought you the iconic Raclette Cheese and Salted Egg Yolk Croissant and now this. The HHWT team had the opportunity of trying out the cafe's Milo-Coated Chicken Pops ($9.90) and their new menu.

We'll admit - initially, we were a little skeptical about the combination but the first bite took us by surprise. We didn't expect it to be so good!
There was a burst of flavours - first it was the spice of the sambal belachan mayo, then came the sweet powdery-ness of the milo and finally the crunch of the fried chicken (which was also drizzled with condensed milk ?). What surprised us the most was that none of the flavours were too overwhelming and we liked that we could taste a bit of every flavour. We also dipped the milo chicken pops in the nacho cheese sauce but we weren't so fond of it as the taste of the cheese engulfed the milo chicken.
Overall, we preferred the sambal belachan mayo sauce as it gave the dish a more well-rounded taste. After savouring this, we finally understood why people would be obsessed over milo chicken! But then again, milo and fried chicken are both so good on its own and they are basically two things that can never go wrong, no matter how absurd it sounds ?
If you're planning on heading to Flavour Flings, don't miss out their new specials too. We particularly loved the fiery Beef Tom Yum Pasta ($15.90) - the gravy was rich, creamy, sour and spicy all at once - perfect if you're looking for something which packs a punch! There's also Chilli Crab Pasta ($17.90), Crab Croissant Roll ($19.90) and other exciting items in case you're wondering. So, head on down to Flavour Flings for a feast ? P.S.
