I was free today and apparently my friend Javier was in town from Perth and we decided to head down to Dallas Chicken for a buffet meal. We heard about Dallas Chicken from various blogs and thought it was a pretty good deal, considering that both of us are heavy eaters. Initially we ended up in Chinatown where the outlet was some 2 months ago. A quick on the net lead us to their new place at POMO (former Paradiz centre).

We ordered a total of 7 chicken pieces, 12 drumlets and 6 nuggets as variable buffet items (free-flow). A single buffet meal also consists of a burger (chicken/fish) and a drink (NOT free-flow). The chicken’s texture was very similar to KFC’s original chicken, although the taste was slightly different.

Overall, it’s worthwhile taking the buffet meal if youre really into chicken! The drumlets were exceptionally good, with more spice in them. The burger was similar to the ones you get at western food outlets at hawker centres that cost about ($2++) However, I can say that the fish fillet in the burger was bigger:

As you can see, this is the leftover! I had a short chat with the owner and it seems that they’re strict on food wastage. It’s stated that wastage is chargeable at $25/100 grams. Well, it’s a reasonable deal, and prevents people to order recklessly.

If youre really hungry but you cant afford other buffets like Sakura or Seoul Garden, this is your best bet! Buffet is available everyday from 3-6pm. They’re located at POMO (former Paradiz centre) at Selegie Road, 2nd floor. It’s owned by a Muslim British guy and the food is Halal. If youre not getting the buffet, you can consider other set meals with fries/onion rings.

We were so bloated after the meal.. that we almost needed wheelchairs.. LOL!

I was just strolling along Orchard road earlier this evening at about 10.30pm and a group of people standing around a zebra crossing between Lucky Plaza and the Rolex building caught my eye. I knew something was not right. As I approached the area, I saw a champagne-gold Toyota Altis crashed right into a pedestrian barrier, at the road which has the traffic flow apposite to the car’s direction.

As you can see from the last picture.. imagine if the barrier wasn’t there. The car could have gone for alot more distance, and injured/killed people as well! No relevant civil servants were present at the scene. The driver must be somewhere there disguising himself as a on-looker.. LOL!
