The 10 Second Chicken Wing Fight

I didn’t believe it when I heard it. And I still don’t get it but I have seen it.
Have you seen grown-ups rush for chicken wings? And in 10 seconds, all the BBQ chicken wings are gone. An amazing sight.

Plenty of food for hungry people

Cecilia, BL and Noel are regulars at this steamboat joint each time they are in Sunway.
And they said that there’s a mad rush when the BBQ chicken wings are brought out by the waitress. The tray of chicken wings are so finger-licking good that everyone just stands and waits for this dish to appear, only to tussle to get a piece! (Some unfortunate bloke won’t even get a piece if he’s not quick enough!)
BBQ chicken wings worth fighting for

This corner shop steamboat joint called Yuen Steamboat is a truly bustling eat-all-you-can place, all 3 storeys of it, opposite Sunway Pyramid. I think the shop is located near the Mentari Business Centre. If you can find StarEast Wedding, you’ll find Yuen.

At RM20.80 per person (excluding drinks), you can eat all you can. The variety is not bad for that price. Lots of seafood (large prawns, flower crabs, clams, cockles etc), vegetables, ice cream and of course, the piece de resistance, the BBQ chicken wings, which appear at 20 minute intervals throughout the night. And it’s pork-free so it’s quite a muhibbah scene with every type of Malaysian digging into their steamboat.
See the crowd? There are 3 floors of this action

But I can understand that fighting for the chicken wings is part of the fun, the crazy camaraderie which makes dining in Yuan such an experience. It’s all in good fun and no one gets hurt, except maybe some egos get bruised when they don’t get their chicken wings!
The chicken wings were quite tasty, soaked in a dark caramelised sauce. It’s definitely worth jostling for!
