Lola’s Café would be a name more than familiar to café-hoppers in Singapore. Having been in the scene for much longer than the newer establishments, the café is famous for their delicious grub, and in particular their legendary Honey Paprika Wings.
Even before you eat the wings, the intoxicating fragrance of deep-fried goodness is bound to leave you salivating. The crispy outer layer which is seasoned with honey and the paprika powder packs a punch with its sweet and smoky flavours, and the meat inside is juicy and tender. These are the wings that bring in the customers by the horde during the weekends, and we totally see why.

Punggol Nasi Lemak
Punggol Nasi Lemak has achieved a cult status among foodies in Singapore, garnering snaking queues at all hours of the day. We suspect that its popularity has more than just a little to do with its absolutely magnificent fried chicken wings.

Because the turnover rate of their food is so high, you will never get a stale chicken wing. The satisfaction of tearing into that succulent meat is amazing, and you will be a fan once you try it.
