Fook Seng’s chicken rice is old-school, where the chicken isn’t doused in soy sauce, but just lightly seasoned with sesame oil. Who needs soy sauce when the chicken is already so naturally flavourful? Also, both the thigh and breast meat are smooth and firm, although the thigh meat is slightly pink and undercooked.
Although the rice doesn’t have a strong ginger fragrance, it has a robust taste of chicken stock. Very yummy and old-school indeed. Plump and moist, the rice grains have a wonderful texture too. The chilli sauce also deserves special mention. It’s spicy and flavourful at the same time. You can taste the garlic and just a hint of lime. Simply unforgettable!
I've been blessed to live along Balestier where two of Singapore's most famous Chicken rice brands (Loy Kee & Boon Tong Kee) resides. However, when I do have hainanese chicken rice craving, i do make a point to travel to Jalan Rumah Tinggi for Fook Seng Goldenhill Chicken Rice.
Now situated a few units down at Blk 37 Jalan Rumah Tinggi in a coffeshop, the area has ample of parking spaces and breezy as it is literally on top of an elavated hill.
The way Fook Seng has prepared their chicken is medium well, which retains the natural moisture and softness of the meat. It is of tender sweetness tainted with sesame oil when paired with their fluffy rice, cooked in stock. They are also generous with their julienne sliced spring onions & corriander leaves and serves a small bowl of chicken soup with sliced cabbage.
I can't comment on the chilli as I don't take spicy but I love the ginger paste (try adding a dash of soy sauce) with Black sauce works awesome for me.
I also ordered a portion of Oyster veg which left me a very happy stomach.
While, other Chicken rice has accolades and fame, Fook Seng Goldenhill Chicken Rice remains a hidden gem which definitely deserves better recognition for Chef Ronnie.
Don't be surprise if they sell out by 4pm, amongst its loyal customers who i have seen coming to patronise in their Ferrari and Lambo. The cab driver who sent me to the location, also made a pitstop to eat their chicken rice too!
