Singapore has many national dishes but few are as iconic and well-known as Chicken Rice. But what if you’re in the mood for something that’s a little crunchier? Well, you can always go for Fried Chicken Rice or Nasi Ayam Penyet instead.
Here in this article, we’ll show you where you can find Singapore’s best Fried Chicken Rice.
If you’re in the Toa Payoh or Braddell area, you need to try Da Ji Hainanese Chicken Rice. Locals in the area know that this is the place for the best fried chicken wings. Put fried chicken and fragrant, addictive chicken rice together and you’d got a recipe for a very, very full stomach.
Note that Da Ji only opens from 6pm, till midnight or when their chicken is sold out! So the next time you get a late night fried chicken craving, you know where to go!

One of the most well-known fried chicken hawker stalls, Victor Famous Fried Chicken has been around for decades. They are known for their unassuming but extremely flavourful chicken done in a uniquely Singaporean way. Sometimes, the queue for Victor Famous Fried Chicken appears even before the stall officially opens. Such is the demand for their chicken!

The original Aspirasi Chicken Rice at Seah Im Food Centre is a firm favourite of many ayam penyet lovers. Flavourful inside and out, their fans swear by their chicken’s batter. Speaking of which, a large tub of batter sits outside the stall, for patrons to do self top-ups of crispy golden batter. Aspirasi, apart from their delicious chicken, is also known for the vast array of sauces they provide. Black pepper sauce, sweet and sour sauce, and lemon sauce are just some of the sauces you can ask for along with your chicken rice!
Last year, Aspirasi Chicken Rice won Best Chicken Rice at the Halal Food Awards!

Like Aspirasi, Mat Noh and Rose serves ayam penyet style chicken with generous helpings of batter on top of each serving. Here, however, you’ll find something you won’t find at Aspirasi: fried chicken skin! You’ll also find crispy fried chicken gizzards, livers and windpipes. The mild ginger kick infused into the chicken along with aromatic garlic sets it apart from other fried chicken at hawker stalls. Another thing that makes Mat Noh and Rose’s chicken rice special: they use basmati rice, a long grain rice that is naturally fragrant with a slight pandan flavour.

Indonesian for smashed chicken, Ayam Geprek is essentially boneless chicken thighs pounded into bits saturated with tangy sambal. You also have the option of ordering Ayam Geprek Sambal Matah, which comes with raw onions and shreds of lemongrass for some extra zest. All sets come with keropok and you can even swap your rice out for Indomie!
