Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen @ Toa Payoh Entertainment Centre

Popeyes Chicken opened an outlet at Toa Payoh Entertainment Centre recently. It’s not under the Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits name, but instead, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen. The menu looks the same to me though, so I don’t really know why the name is different.

I have eaten Popeyes at Singapore Flyer and Changi Airport. The fried chicken at both outlets were good, definitely better than KFC.

However, this outlet at Toa Payoh disappoints. Rachel and I cannot pinpoint exactly what was wrong, but it just didn’t taste as good as the usual Popeyes. The chicken was hard to chew and dry.

Usually, Popeyes outlets are always crowded. This did not seem the case for this outlet at Toa Payoh. I suppose for fried food, they taste better when served immediately, before the oil gets stale. Maybe if business moved faster, the fried chicken will improve.

I haven’t eaten at this outlet since. Drop me a note if you ate there recently. 🙂
