Chicken Fried Steak (Tow Down)

We went to Arnold’s last night, our favourite place to get fried chicken. I generally prefer red rather than white meat, and stay away from fast food joints like Kentucky Fried Chicken and the likes; but Arnold’s fried chickens are fresh and juicy. We usually order fried spring chickens and ice kachangs whenever we patronise the place.

Not that I have anything to complain about in the past, but the chickens we had last night tasted even better than usual. They seemed more spicy and crunchy. Ooyah was so excited at the prospect of eating at Arnold’s that she hogged the order menu at the entrance and gave her best imitation of the spring chickens we were about to eat.

The only gripe I have towards Arnold’s is their seemingly reluctance to expand their business to other parts of Singapore. Although they revamped the interior recently, the place is still very cramped. There is hardly any space not occupied by tables and chairs. I’m pretty sure they are making lots of money from the business, judging by the long queue every time we are there; especially on weekends.

So what’s hindering their expansion? It’s not as though they are new to the fast food scene. They have been around for years and used to have a branch at Woodlands, which eventually closed down. Having a branch located in an isolated part of Singapore that failed is not a good enough reason not to expand. Have one in Jurong Point at least. That bloody shopping centre is packed every single day. Definitely money-making opportunity there. And it would also spare those living in the western part of Singapore from travelling to the musky-smelling City Plaza, just to taste Arnold’s offerings.

Our family always banter among ourselves that we should approach the management of Arnold’s and open up a branch in Jurong Point. But so far, all talk and no action.
