If you’ve been to any pasar malam, I’m sure you would have seen the Uncle Bob Fried Chicken stalls. They seem to be operating like a franchised business, like McDonald’s or KFC, but at pasar malam level, following the success of fatty guy’s lok lok, I guess.

the prominent uncle bob stall

Uncle bob fried chicken’s tag lines:
1. remove skin
2. remove fats
3. making breast tastes like drumstick

I’m not sure if it does taste like drumstick, but the end result was pretty good. I usually have a piece whenever I go to the SS2 pasar malam on Monday night. The chicken breast meat is flattened and boneless, with a crispy outer layer from the breading, stopped with a choice of spicey or non spicey seasoning that reminds me of Old Bay seasoning.

the 4 steps – fry, season, cut, pack

The chicken is cut into bite size and you are given a stick ala rojak style to get access to the chicken so you don’t even need to get your hands dirty and having to lick your fingers afterwards. There’s no basin at pasar malam, just so you haven’t figure that part out.

RM 4.50 for a pretty big piece of chicken, give me Uncle Bob anyday over the KFC chicken chop please. By the way, the stall also claimed that they are halal certified.

Discuss : KY eats – Uncle Bob Fried Chicken @ ss2 pasar malam

  1. i wonder Uncle Bob will survives if bird flu strikes again.

    btw, i heard SS2 had a major blackout recently.. pity them.

  2. Did you have to pay Uncle Bob for the chicken in return for this world wide web advertisement? He! he!

  3. PabloPabla,

    I wish, i wish.. no such luck. hehe

  4. WTH dude.

    The skin is the best part!

  5. Zeo,

    I love the KFC chicken skin too, but somehow Uncle Bob has decided he wanted to make this stuff slightly healthier I guess? hehe

  6. confused.bitch

  7. kimberlycun

    MAHAI .I.

  8. I’m a new kid in towm. How to get to there LRT ?From there I can walk to SS2.

    KY: you can take the LRT to taman bahagia and then take a cab to SS2, which will cost you not more than RM5, quite nearby from there.

  9. err, dont think so this chicken breast can lawan the drumstick or the “kai yee tou”

    but hey the chicken breast can lawan the kfc chiken chop anytime man … at least uncle bob is generous with the portion …

  10. Uncle Bob Chicken = YumYum! But I heard there’s another Yummy Fried Chicken in Klang. To be exact, in GoodWood [behind Andalas, opposite tesco’s housing area]. Only operates at night at the corner of the street along one of the shophouses. Go check it out la!

    Hello KY,

    Have been reading your blog and your group of friend’s for some time now, though i have yet to comment on any of them. Don’t know why though but i enjoy reading and going over photos of your food escapade. Keeps me updated on what’s hot and happening back home, not to mention what great food i’m missing.

    Take care man.


  14. After reading your blog, I went to SS2 Cheow Yang Pasar Malam to buy Unc Bob’s Chicken. Yum Yum. 2 uncle Bob stores in 1 pasar malam. I think he is damn rich. And did u see Uncle Bob himself? He look so cool with the bald head and his specs while frying the yummy chicken! And not to forget..The Q was so long for both stores! But one thing about after-effect of eating the chicken –> sore throat.

  15. David,
    Thanks for the vote of confidence!

    Haha, i think it’s a franchise, not sure if that guy is the real Uncle Bob, kinda like Ms Read and Madam Kwan, you know?

  16. Yup! But I think he is the original Uncle Bob. My frens also said he is uncle Bob. Maybe one day I should go and ask him… 🙂

  17. oh the klang fried chicken by 2 brothers. The 2 brothers are fried chicken kings.

  29. Good……u heva UNCLE BOB Website??

  30. ChickEnKING

    CHICKEN CHOP KING XXL is better than uncle bob. Uncle bob is getting attacking, they must do something. Cannot remain the old style running business…..

  31. i saw XXL chicken king before! its like a COPY CAT,,copy all the uncle BOB style!! advertisment,chicken,colors,,,etc.Try to confuse the customers! And the chicken,,no good lar,,like AJINOMOTO flavored chicken chop,,after eating the chicken i feel so thirsty!!! i prefer uncle bob~~!

  32. Walau….
    There are alot of “FAN-PAN” (imitation/fake) taiwan fried chicken. tried the imitation one although its RM4.50 compare to Uncle BOB RM4.80…. Uncle BOB is worth every single cents.. but that is just my opinion.

  33. I think Alisan Fried Chicken is similar with Uncle BOB.. I’ve tested, Surprising, it more delicious than UNCLE BOB. Uncle bob seem like “UNCLE” Outdated already.

  34. haha! if you think AXISAN is more delicious and UncleBOB is outdated. you wouldn’t write “Alisan Fried Chicken is similar with Uncle BOB”!! GO EAT YOUR OWN WORD. SUCKER.

  35. wah cool, got website now!

  36. Wah, now looks like Uncle Bob stalls are splattered all over the northern states especially Penang. Like chicken laying eggs all over the place and hatching.

  37. Dyoyo,
    Ya looks like the franchise is doing very well.

  38. We have a new product..its now selling in various pasarmalam. check it out on the website.

  39. Hi every one, there is another brand i saw in Taman Miharja, Cheras monday pasar malam ,name “XLL – Chiu Tai Tai(cantonese)fried chicken king from taiwan as well.The taste is not bad.Can compete with uncle Bob.Got his own original taste.What u guys think?

    I start eating uncle Bob it taste good and i never try “XLL Fried Chicken” before.The both stall selling at the same time at different corner.suddently uncle Bob stop selling event the stall was located at the entrance of pasar malam and “XLL fried chicken” located at center. Why? can anyone from uncle Bob comment?

    I wonder why uncle Bob stop selling there and force me to try “XLL fried chicken”. Maybe the “XLL Fried Chicken” taste better? my personal comment is both of them has it’s own original taste.Now i prefer “XLL fried chicken” more. Try it!!!!

  40. Sheldon,
