Barcelos™ Flame Grilled Chicken (A Singapore Food Post)

I've been in and out of Singapore since 2008 since the ex-fiancee, now the Husband, is based here for work.  And one of the very first eateries he brought me to was Barcelos™ Flame Grilled Chicken.

Barcelos™ Flame Grilled Chicken at VivoCity, Singapore

Barcelos™ Flame Grilled Chicken is a simple self-serve eatery that specializes in grilled fowl.

Barcelos™' grilled chicken isn't sweet; so unlike similar dishes that we have in PH.  But it does use a lot of flavorful herbs and spices plus a special sauce -- from tangy lemon to supa peri (really hot) which is basted while grilling and/or used as a condiment -- that gives that added spiciness and kick.

4 special sauces (tangy lemon, mild peri, very peri, and supa peri)

Their ¼ chicken meal (includes 2 sides, or a side and choice of soft drink) sells for S$14.50 (Php479*)

I love the food here since the flavors aren't overpowering and the chicken's really tasty.  Sides are delicious too.  However, I don't like the wait staff who just seem to be completely bored teenagers with nothing better to do (wouldn't it kill you to smile a bit?  Or be a little more customer-oriented?)  

Nevertheless, Barcelos™ Flame Grilled Chicken continues to remain one of our favorite food stops.
