Cheeky Chicky is a newly opened establishment bringing you the 'soon to be famous' Beer Can Chicken! But despite its name, Cheeky Chicky actually serves more than just chicken, they serve a fusion of Asian dishes guarantee to fill your tummy.
The whole atmosphere was laid back and cozy with cute doodles of chicken on the black board and comfortable cushions on the seats.
And of course, no meal that includes chicken is complete without alcohol! We were recommended to try this very exquisite Momo-shu which is Peach Sake. Tastes sweet and very easy to drink. They have a variety of other alcoholic beverages and beer.
And Cheeky Chicky's signature dish is none other than Beer Can Chicken!
As its name implies, this chicken is grilled in the oven with a can of beer up it's butt. Beer, as I was told. makes a very good tenderizer for meat. Therefore, after the whole thing is ready to be served, the chicken meat, even the breast part (which is usually known to be dry and tough) is soft and tender.
The whole chicken was marinated really well, grilled to perfection and turned out tender and tasty!
The beer was extracted together with the essence from the chicken after cooking and placed into shot glasses. We were told that this is very nourishing. I tried this and it doesn't taste anything like beer at all. It tastes more like chicken essence.
The helpful staff will proceed to cut the chicken into parts so that it is easy for us to consume. Also served with keropok scattered around the chicken.
Set meals with a mix and match option are available here too. Choose your mains (chicken, beef, seafood, salmon) and your sauces together with a base of either Hainanese chicen rice, pasta or okonomoyaki.
We picked beef in teriyaki black pepper sauce with pasta (pic above). This sauce is carefully brewed with a teasing hint of wasabi resulting in a sweet and savoury flavour. Pasta was surprisingly very tasty too.
Beef was also very tender and cooked till medium rare, just the way we like it!
The other combo we chose was prawns in creamy salted egg sauce with Okonomoyaki (Japanese Pancake). Salted egg itself was already bursting with flavour. We liked how creative the chef was :)
Side dishes like truffle fries, onion rings, cheese sticks, chawanmushi are also available.
Must also mention that their chawanmushi is made of a trio of eggs, Something different from many other restaurants.
