I've patronized Popeyes for a few years now, and 2 of my must-haves from the menu, are the Bonafide Chicken and mash potato.The size of the bonafide chicken is quite huge. The skin is very crispy; the meat really tender and juicy. When you bite into the chicken the juice flows into your mouth and on your hands too. There is alot of flavour in the meat, and I don't find the meat to be dry, unlike most other fried chicken elsewhere.2 pieces for about $6+3 pieces for about $8+The mash potato is top

2 pieces for about $6+
3 pieces for about $8+

The mash potato is topped with a generous amount of Cajun gravy. This combination is stunning. The gravy gives a very strong and succulent flavour to the mash potato. Also, the potato is soft and easy to eat, which often leaves me craving for more even after finishing a large bowl on my own. Even without the gravy, there is sufficient taste in the mash potato to eat it on its own. I prefer Popeye's mash potato as compared to KFC's which I find to be on the starchy side - it gets me full and bloated too soon.

******************************

Recent encounters at Punggol outlet:

Personally I find this outlet to be quite dirty especially during the night time. From the recent few months I've been there at night, their tables are mostly uncleared, and there is no attendant around to help.

There were a couple of times my friends and I had to clear tables on our own so that we could dine in. The patrons before us did not use a tray, and threw lose pieces of chicken bones all over the table. There were also puddles of water on the table from water, coke, sauces, coleslaw, mash potato, and leftover food all mixed together. As there were no other tables available, my friends and I decided to clear up the entire mess. After that, we went to the cleaner's counter to take a cleaning spray and cloth to wipe the table clean. There were also fingerprints of oil stains all over the seats so we wiped them down too, before eating. Did I mention there were bits of leftover food and chicken bones strewn on the floor too? It was an experience we didn't want to go through again, especially when it involves clearing a mess of leftovers of the food we were going to eat.

In one of my recent encounter, my friends and I had some difficulty trying to order food from a service staff who didn't give any acknowledgement during the order process despite us repeating our orders. As she didn't even give a nod, we couldn't figure out if she had gotten our orders. However when she spoke a little after a long while, she was barely audible even though we tried to lean over the counter to hear her. Later on, we received wrong orders. When we finally settled down with the food, the more disappointing part was that our usual favourite Bonafide Chicken was too salty. It was surprising because while we understood that different outlets may serve food that deviates slightly in taste, that particular day's food was just way distinctively salty. Even the Buttermilk Biscuit was tasteless yet too salty. When we bit into it, it disintegrated into a lump of flour goop in our mouths. We gave up eating, and had no idea why our dining experiences at the Punggol outlet kept getting more and more disappointing. It was the first time in our lives we experienced a fast food chain serving food that was so different from its usual standards.

I do patronize Popeyes at many of their other outlets too. Those experiences have been good so far, so I guess that's where my friends and I are heading for our next Popeye's craving.

Ordered their special chicken combo meal which consists of 5 chickens, two drinks and a fries. Plus their famous biscuit which taste like bread but it is very crispy. The chicken meat is very tender and the skin is very crispy. The service is quite good, we are able to select the chicken parts to be consumed.

Overall, the whole dish is quite enjoyable.

Nice place with great service! I ordered cheese fries along with calamari rings. Their cheese is the best i've came across compared to all fast food chains. Arnold chicken have nice cheese fries too though. I love their fries as well, it is crispy and tasty! Every piece is well seasoned. Yums! It is my first time trying on their calamari rings and it is not very fantastic. In fact, there's a slight fishy smell to it. Tasteless and feels like rubber. Yucks!

Although Popeye has been around in the market for quite a period of time, I am still confuse on why there are so many regular fans craving for their chickens. Personally I find their chicken meat is quite tough and totally not tender. Is also very dry which is quite difficult to swallow after your first bite. Moreover the marination for their chickens do not really make their chickens more fragrant and smell good, is just a usual piece of chicken that can be easiler obtain from any coffee sho

The fries are cold and not crispy. Quite a disappointing meal.

For those who live in the west, you may not have heard of Punggol Park. It’s a rather new location with and up and coming night scene. There are restaurants, bars and even a prawning area there. There is also Popeyes. And Popeyes is probably the most pocket friendly and family friendly place there.

For those who live in the west, you may not have heard of Punggol Park. It’s a rather new location with and up and coming night scene. There are restaurants, bars and even a prawning area there. There is also Popeyes. And Popeyes is probably the most pocket friendly and family friendly place there. It is also located near the running track and the canal so you can take a stroll after your meals. One problem is parking. Do go early because parking tends to run out especially on weekend nights. Punggol park is also not very accessible as yet (the area is still being developed), so driving is recommended. Another problem is Popeyes has very limited tables, so seats run out fast and the ques are long. Of course, getting a takeaway and having picnic at the park benches is still an option – if you don’t mind the mosquitoes. As for their food, I always love their biscuit. Its not really what we consider a biscuit in Singapore – think its more of a scone. It tastes equally great having it with jam (if you have a sweet tooth, do ask for more than 1 packet of jam as they only serve one packet of jam) or on its own (the crust is slightly salty so it wouldn’t taste bland at all). I also tried their fish burger which was a letdown because the fish had hardly any taste – all I tasted was the breaded bit. But the portion was a bit too much for me.

I love their mash potato aand i would go to popeyes just to order a large portion of it. It has chunks of potatos and chicken inside, unlike those you eat at other places where it is simple just mashed potato, too smooth to taste anything. They have a tinch of peper taste which i like too..Surprisingly, their fried chicken is not my favourite.Their biscuit is my second love. I call it scones, because it looks like one and it goes with the jam. I prefer to eat it without.
