Lim Fried Chicken@The Starling


The first time I had Lim Fried Chicken (LFC), I thought the chicken was all right, not bad but not great either. At that time, I had it with chee cheong fun. Then I never went back.

Recently on a day when I only food prepped for lunch, I needed something for dinner. So I revisited LFC.

After I paid for my order I was told my food would be ready in seven minutes. Seven minutes became 15 minutes and I went to check. I was told my food was not ready yet. So I waited.


The lady apologized and explained that they had to fry the chicken. So that was my dinner.


The egg turned out to be hard boiled instead of fried. Next time, I will do without the egg. The cabbage was just boiled cabbage, ughs!

The sambal was not bad but I did not like the curry. 


It was Chinese style and quite runny.

The only nice thing on the plate was, thankfully, the fried chicken. Crispy skinned, big and meaty. 


Another day, I could not decide what to eat and I went for LFC again. This time sans egg and curry.


This time, I was told to wait five minutes. Like before, five minutes became 15 minutes. 


I was given a generous serving of sambal but unfortunately, the sambal that day tasted weird. The color was weird too. As usual, eating the cabbage was pure torture.


The fried chicken was still good but I think that's it for me. No more LFC. At least not for awhile.

  2. oh gosh...this is not my type of meal...I would prefer something else (economy rice is better) than a bland rice with cabbage and unappetizing sambal...

    1. I wish that they could improve the vegetable. I think they used to serve with long beans.

  3. The rice would be a bit dry without the curry or any gravy

    1. I am OK with my rice without gravy but most people love rice with gravy.

  4. LFC looks so crispy and tasty so I ordered it once and shared it with my friend. The part near the bone area, the flesh tastes like what I imagined rotting flesh would taste like, it was rancid and foul tasting (for the record, I got the same taste when eating KyoChon chicken where the meat is closest to the bones). I guess they use frozen chicken and the part nearest to the bone is not cooked that well so the rotting taste can be detected. I know many people love eating LFC and Kyochon chicken but not for me. Maybe they do not eat the meat near the bones so they did not encounter this rotting taste. So never again for LFC and Kyochon.

    1. Oh dear. The chicken was not fresh then. I reckon it is the way the chicken is stored, left too long at room temperature or refrozen when not all are fried.

  5. The 2nd time, you should have asked them to leave out the cabbage so that you did not need to suffer eating them. I am ok with the soft, soft cabbage and the chinese style curry sauce.

  6. Chinese curry can be quite nice sometimes for a change and I don't mind hardboiled egg. Next time you go here, bring me along and pass them to me. Hehehehehehe!!! You can have my fried chicken - after all, fried chicken is...fried chicken.
