Rang Mang Shokudo, Japan Food Town @ Wisma Atria
The deciding factor that landed us in Rang Mang Shokudo (#04-50 Wisma Atria, 435 Orchard Road, tel : +65 6262 3504) today was pretty much because they didn't have a queue. And yes, this shop is another of the 16 eateries that are located in the relatively new Japan Food Town at Wisma Atria. They do buttermilk marinated tori karaage.
The fried chicken comes by its own or in a set as featured in the picture above. Actually, there are two different types of sets. This one (above) is the regular set with a bunch of vegetables for salad and there's a economy set which has only leaves of lettuce and curry flavoured potato salad that the regular set does not have. Hmmm....
The variety comes from the toppings or sauces that one gets to choose for the fried chicken. This one's mentaiko mayo. The mentaiko was weak in the mayo so hindsight whispered that I should have picked something else. We tried the salt and pepper rendition which was tasty but pretty salty. Otherwise, the karaage was pretty decent. The chicken had a crisp exterior, was served piping hot and was thankfully not overly greasy. Don't mind coming back to try another flavour.
