Global Sensation

Created by Taiwanese comedian and TV host, NONO, together with Ming Dao, the King of Taiwanese Fried Chicken, Monga has generated snaking queues since its opening in JEM with a record breaking sales among its 100 other outlets in the world; attributing its popularity to its fresh, tender, and juicy 2-cm thick-cut chicken fillets that is unlike any other fried chicken brands out there. Established in Taiwan, the brand boasts over 45 outlets in Taiwan itself with numerous outlets worldwide such as Canada, the U.S.A, the U.K., Philippines and Malaysia.

Trusted recipe and unique cutting procedures to achieve the next-level fried chicken

Prepared exactly the way they do in Taiwan, Monga’s distinction is defined by its trusted recipe and its extra-thick chicken fillets. To ensure that their chicken meat is fresh and tender, Monga uses only fresh and not frozen chicken for their offerings.

Get your money’s worth as one whole fresh chicken can only make two pieces of Monga fried chicken cutlets – yes, it’s that huge. Every piece comprises only breast meat and is sliced precisely into a thick slice with a precision of 2cm. This ensures that the chicken fillet remains firm and satisfyingly juicy even after being deep-fried.

To distinguish itself further, Monga has mastered the art of preparing perfectly tender chicken breast meat. The brand uses honey instead of granulated sugar to marinate their chicken breast meat. The amylase in honey helps to tenderise the meat and elevates the taste of the chicken fillet.

Monga also prides itself for its ‘Golden Ratio’ of flour to meat born out of a lot of thought, months of hard work and repeated modifications. Each fillet is coated with the optimum amount of flour before being double-fried, giving it its characteristic crust-like crunch with no greasiness.

Savour Monga’s famous offerings

Every piece is made fresh and served piping hot! Expect three different flavours of fried chicken fillet in Singapore, The King S$6.90, which is dusted with original salt and pepper seasoning; Hot Chick S$6.90, which is dusted with chilli paprika powder hand-made from Anaheim peppers; and The Taiker S$6.90, which is dusted with Japanese sauce and seaweed powder imported from Okinawa.

To complete the set with a drink and/or fries, choose from different combo upgrades available.

Apart from the fried chicken favourites, relish in the variety of sides offered at the outlet.

For times when you are yearning for a quick snack, munch on their bite-sized Monga Nuggets 6pcs for S$5.90 and enjoy the crackling crispy Fried Chicken Skin S$3.90.
