This chicken rice place is my FAVOURITE in Singapore. Like seriously, I think the quality of chicken can totally compare to the likes of Boon Tong Kee and Five Star – its plump, succulent and tasty. The rice might be a bit on the oily side, but still, very delicious.
Their other chicken variations are pretty good too – I like the curry chicken thick beehoon with its rich, spicy coconut milky goodness, but the usual steamed chicken kway teow or noodles are alright too, quite light – find the noodle version slightly bland though, but this might be a bit biased because I usually like rich and flavourful food.
And strangely enough, this place also does pretty good zi char dishes! They offer awesome dishes like fish head curry, imperial honey chicken, prawn paste chicken, sambal sweet potato leaf, crabmeat beancurd and more – all of these I tried and found to be very good, and in fairly generous portions too.
The Portugese style chicken rice is also amazing – tender fried chicken cutlets smothered in a rich yellow sauce. And for the health conscious, they also have the usual range of porridges as well as fish soup with rice or beehoon.
And one of the highlights of this place is the mango smoothie with milk, that’s thick, creamy and full of mango flavour.
Good stuff! Will probably come up to about $5 to $20 per pax, depending on what you order. Service is alright but they do tend to get busy at times and it's pretty much self service during such periods. At least the staff are quite friendly though. Anyway I feel that at such casual eateries with their affordable prices, you don't really need that much service - having good food is more important!
