I’ve always believed that frying chicken was a universal language, and that so many cultures are able to express their abundance of flavors through breading and sauce. That’s why I get so stoked when fast food spots bring those flavors into the mainstream, as a stepping stone to induct tastebuds into these new experiences.
Kentucky Fried Chicken locations in Singapore is now offering a take on Thai flavors with their new Spicy Thai Crunch.
A spicy Thai sauce is dressed over KFC Singapore’s Hot & Crispy chicken, then sprinkled with zesty rice crisps. The rice crisps are coated with a spicy-sour seasoning that’s loaded with the flavors of galangal, lemongrass, garlic, and onion that checks off all the boxes for spicy, savory, sweet and tangy in this new menu offering.
Definitely something I’d love to try if I’m ever in Singapore. Though if I close my eyes and listen carefully, I can probably hear those resounding Singaporean crunches from the other side of the world.
You can find the Spicy Thai Crunch at participating KFC Singapore locations.
