Western Barbeque is a rather famous western food stall in Old Airport Road Food Centre, it was mentioned in one of the comments when i wrote about the 5 Noteworthy Western Food Stalls. I decided to check it out when i happened to be there.
It was slightly after lunch but there was quite a crowd there. I was asked for the table number when i placed the order for Chicken Chop. When i could not give it, i was then given a number tag and asked to come back to collect after 10 minutes. I seated at a table not too far from the stall and waited, when it was about time, the stall assistant signalled me to come forward to collect it.
It was quite a big portion for just $6. They even served in with sweet bun wrapped in a plastic bag together with fries, baked beans together with slices of cucumber and tomato. The stall owner uses a deboned chicken drumstick for a juicier and more tender texture. The secret weapon is supposed to be the sweet and rather tangy garlic sauce created with more than 10 ingredients using a secret recipe that is only known to the owner. The taste has remain unchanged for the past 20 years.
It was quite tasty but it would be nicer if the skin of the chicken was slightly crispier but i guess they have too many orders to do it that way. Overall, it still tasted better than most of the chicken chops though they are not the best that i have eaten.
The sweet bun is served evenly buttered, it was nice to have it though it did not have much taste if eat it by itself. I actually cut a small piece of chicken and stuffed it in, it was much nicer that way.
