Salted egg chicken wings at IKEA

One of the few items served at IKEA’s food hall that I constantly head back for is their chicken wings. Just when I thought there was nothing I would change to those gloriously fried babies, IKEA proved me wrong with the newest item on their menu: Salted Egg Chicken Wings.

The OG chicken wings are $3.50 for a pair, but the Salted Egg Chicken Wings will set you back $9.50 for six pieces. Have a taste of these salted egg-drenched wings when you make a visit to IKEA to get Halloween or Christmas decorations, as they are available from now till 31 December 2019.
I wouldn’t wait so late to get my hands on them though. These wings are while stocks last and you know how us Singaporeans love our salted egg creations.

Even though they are not swimming in pools of yellow salted egg goodness, you won’t be disappointed by the taste. Potent salted egg yolk sauce coats most parts of the chicken wing, and this allows the chicken wings to retain most of the crunch from the thin batter. Crowned with chopped red chilli and curry leaves, each bite of chicken is elevated with spice and a tinge of nutty aroma.
Good news for Easties and Westies: these bad boys are available at both the Alexandra and Tampines outlets. Even our neighbours at IKEA Malaysia are enjoying these special-edition wings as we speak.
