Arrived around 6:40pm, the restaurant is already full. Managed to get a seat after waiting for 15 minutes. I ordered the steamed chicken and bitter gourd soup. The chicken is juicy and succulent, however the rice still have room for improvement. Overall it is an above average standard for the food and average for the environment!

Amazing chicken rice and some great hainanese dishes - all perfectly cooked!! I don’t usually eat the white chicken rice because I prefer the roasted one but the white chicken rice here was so fantastic 👌🏼 10/10 will come agn!

Chin Chin is an institution. I’ve been eating the chicken rice from here since I was growing up. It’s decidedly old school - don’t expect any IG handle or QR code scanning. You order in person, your order gets written down on paper, and you pay in cash. But because of these aspects it’s also one of the more reasonably-priced establishments given the location.

Service-wise it’s also pretty old school. The family can be gruff / grouchy when it’s busy, but they are efficient and you get seated and served your food quickly. On certain days when it’s less busy they can indulge you in a joke or two.

I ordered the steamed chicken drumstick rice, which comes with a free bowl of soup. For some reason the rice today was a little clumpy, but it could be a one-off since it wasn’t like that during my previous visits. Chicken was consistently good though, juicy and tender. I also love that you can help yourself to as much of their delicious chicken rice chili as you want (but of course my stomach probably doesn’t appreciate this as much as my taste buds do).

Went after the lunch crowd dissipated when it’s not crowded. Food overall is delicious & affordable. The Hainanese pork chop is crispy but taste flat. Only taste much better with the sauce. The Hokkien mee is rich and not too starchy which is good. The chicken rice is fragrant. Will come again.

Old school Hainanese Coffee shop in the city.

Be prepared to wait.. during lunch time and dinner time.
The place is usually packed...

I remember many years ago.. came with my friend to have lunch..
So as I was nearby, decided to drop by myself.

Ordered a double serving of white and roasted chicken...
Salted fish tau gay ...

The chicken rice.. was not really that fragrant, just a bit taste better than white rice.

The chicken came messy chop and plated... And some garnish throw on top...
White chicken...Is OK.. tender and smooth.
But the roasted chicken... Came like stone and no meat..

The sauce on the chicken.. just came like just salty.. no fragrant.. or 香油。 Just taste like. Light soya sauce only...

The soup came very hot... Which is a good thing...

The bean sprouts.. came as a Zhi Char dish.. means quite big size for a single person...
Taste so so . Just plain vegetables.

Had to walk into pay bill.... The whole coffeeshop is packed with people...
Maybe their home style Hainanese Zhi Char is good...
I see everyone like ordering their messy plate of Hainan mix vegetable...

Maybe will drop by again see how....

As of now.. my 2 star is for the chicken rice.
