Tucked away in the sleepy enclave of Jalan Rumah Tinggi, Fook Seng Goldenhill is a hidden gem that’s quickly gathering a steady stream of regulars. Fook Seng’s chicken rice is old-school, where the chicken isn’t doused in soy sauce, but just lightly seasoned with sesame oil.
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!
This stall's regular plate of chicken rice ($2; premium, $3) comes with Hainanese-style white chicken that is slightly gamey in taste and texture. There is a mild sesame oil fragrance to the sticky rice, and the sourish spicy chilli sauce brings all the elements together beautifully. We think this is one of the best plates of chicken rice in Singapore, and feel lucky to be able to have it for such an affordable.

The chicken is tender and the raw fish is fresh and cold. It is one of the best chicken rice in town. Very good value for money. It is advisable to call before going to make sure the stall is open and that they still have stocks of raw fish.
