Chilli needs more fine-tuning

After Tian Tian Chicken Rice, I think this must be the stall which will actually require people to queue for more than 30min. We queued for exactly 40min slightly before 5pm on a Sunday afternoon. Why the long queue? Well, this appeared in "Where the Queue Starts" and the price is really cheap.    We ordered half a chicken ($12), chicken feet ($3), bean sprouts aka taugeh($3). Each plate of rice costs 50cent...............    But, the problem for us was the diluted chilli which seemed to be prepared half-heartedly. Old Ma stated that the chilli should be really superb to the extent that one can finish an entire plate of chicken rice without the chicken.,......

went with 2 close friends to watch stephen chow’s mermaid at GV Bishan yesterday on 3.3.2016.

after the show we walked over to kim san leng food centre.

my friend queued up to buy a S$11 plate chicken from the bugis street ming kee chicken rice. he could not recall the price of the beg, which i guess was S$6. we had 2 rice to share among 3.

chicken was good, but nothing special for me really. no much different from xin ji 新记chicken rice at mei ling food centre.

overall the lunch would come to about S$38 for 3, that should be consider ex. maybe we just ate too much…lol! ^^

i like the duck best, chicken & ngoh hiang a toss up. but chicken have to queue so i guess ngoh for my choice. haha!

Good but too long queue

Ming kee chicken rice is the most popular stall at the Kim sang leng food centre in bishan. Everyday during lunch and dinner, there is guarantee to be a queue for their chicken rice so if you really want to get our hands and mouths on their food I would highly suggest that you come after or before meal times. Unlike other chicken rice stalls, they sell the plain white chicken and do not sell roast chicken at all. Their chicken is tender and juicy and their gravy is awesome but their rice is average only. I would suggest to buy half a chicken or a whole chicken for takeaway to truly enjoy the taste of their signature chicken. If only their queue wasn't so long.

Overrated Chicken Rice

Happened to be in the area and remembered there is this Chicken rice place near Bishan Interchange (Ming Kee).

I regret driving here as there are definitely better chicken rice places along Balestier road, which is also quite nearby.  In fact, come to think of it, many ordinary coffeeshops serve better chicken rice than this stall.

Chicken is so-so, not very tender mainly because they dip their chicken in ice.  The rice is only tasty because of the quite salty (MSG-laden) gravy.  I left feeling thirsty despite a drink later.  And the chili is disappointingly watery.  No oomph to it.  Not shiok at all.

If you're from elsewhere and want to try good chicken rice, don't bother travelling to this stall.  You will leave disappointed.

Very shocked to eat chilled cold chicken at Ming kee chicken rice stall at Bishan st13. At late lunch they have only chicken breast and I saw in a tray full of ice. Was puzzled. I requested it to be deboned but wasn't. The experience could be almost complete if not for that plate of cold chicken meat which is the first time for me eating chicken rice in Singapore. Cannot bring foreigners there or they think our spore chicken rice served cold chicken meat. Soup was plain like water.

A normal plate of chicken rice.

Plus points:
The soup and the various sauces partnered really well with the slightly bland rice and chicken.  The part of the chicken which were cooked was wonderfully tender and sliced thickly. The soup was quite flavourful and most memorable.             

Minus points:
The rice was slightly bland.
Part of the chicken I received was undercooked, with reddishness and blood stains. I did not eat this undercooked part.
