Popeyes Fried Chicken @ T1, Changi Airport
My travel companions and I had about half an hour to spare. We were hungry and I suggested that we should eat at Popeyes, my favourite Fried Chicken! A couple of the girls in the group love Popeyes too and so with the few of us telling the rest of the party how good the fried chicken was in comparison with KFC, we had the entire group raring to go for Popeyes!
Like KFC, Popeyes Fried Chicken has 2 flavours: Original and Spicy but Popeyes chicken tastes alot better than KFC's. I opted for an original-flavoured 2 piece meal with Buttermilk Biscuit and Mashed Potatoes (not portrayed in the above picture). I love the chicken at Popeyes because the skin of the chicken is consistently crispy whereas I sometimes wind up with soggy chicken skin at KFC. The chicken pieces also tend to be juicier than the ones at KFC.
In addition, the chicken at Popeyes somehow doesn't have the strong "freezer taste" that KFC has. It's hard to describe the "freezer taste" that I dislike so much but basically it tastes of stale blood that permeates the flesh of the chicken. Of course, Popeyes uses frozen chicken but I'm guessing that its from a different supplier than the one for KFC. This is just my personal view on the taste of the chicken. I love buttermilk biscuits and I used to love the one at Popeyes until this visit because it was too hard for my liking.
I know of many friends who like Popeyes so much that they're willing to drive across town to Changi Airport just to eat it. I'm glad I'm living in the East so its closer to me. This is a MUST-TRY if you happen to love fried chicken and/or happen to be in Changi Airport.
