Fook Seng Goldenhill Chicken Rice

AsianChineseHainaneseLocalSingaporean
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.

An undiscovered contender: Yummy Chicken Rice hidden in town fringe

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!

Best Chicken Rice Ever

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.

They do right by chicken rice, and their side dish is a major plus for me ...

I had resisted wanting to write about this place. It’s location is pretty hidden and it’s a hole-in-the wall type of place, limited seating, and has had no problems filling their tables and does good business. The lesser the better maybe? Didn’t think I needed the whole world to know about it. But, who am I kiddin and who’d read what I put here?? J Anyway I thought I should do them justice.

 

Of course, the main item on their menu here is chicken, which is one of the highlights for me when I come here. They only serve 白鸡 here … no roasted chicken. The chicken is really tender, the meat is just moist and has a slight crunchy / tangy feel when you bite into the meat … very nice. The rice is very fragrant and tasty, but not oily, which is again another plus, because there are a lot of chicken rice stalls out there whose rice are very fragrant and tasty but also very oily. Some people like it, some people don’t. For $3.50 a plate of chicken rice, the amount of chicken meat that comes with the rice is more than what you’d normally get at most other stalls. They normally also serve a small bowl of soup with the chicken rice, which is boiled with chicken bones and vegetables, no MSG and very tasty.

 

Now, the second highlight for me when I visit this place is that I always order a plate of 鱼生. I do not know why, but I’ve come across many stalls that are supposed to sell good traditional Cantonese style yu sheng but they’ve always flattered to deceive. And of all places, this hole in the wall chicken rice stall serves up, imho, probably one of the best yu sheng I’ve eaten here. Fish is very fresh, and kept chilled at the right temperature before serving. $3 for a good portion to go with my chicken rice … heaven !! J

 

Well, it’s not the most convenient place to get to, and they don’t open late. They have signs telling you that waiting time during peak lunch hrs of 12-2pm can be as long as 20 mins, because its a small operation with largely one man behind the kitchen preparing the food and taking the orders as well. But it's worth it for me, and I sure as hell will make detours there to eat whenever I have a chicken rice and yu sheng craving … Buen Aproveche !!
