A piece of that local experience in the heart of the city. The cafeteria is very old school, serving some legit hainanese pork and steamed chicken. Loved both dishes, although the pork is a tad bit dry. It can get very busy during peak hours, so be prepared to queue. But the good thing is, uncle and auntie will help you get seated once a table frees up.
Upon friend’s recommendation, we tried out this chicken rice place.
The ambiance is basically a local coffee shop style place with no frills (aircon’ed inside). We did not have difficulty getting a table, perhaps it was a weekday evening.
The chicken is nicely made, in the traditional chicken rice style. They only serve kampong chicken now so it is more pricey. It also tasted a bit tougher than the cage reared birds. The pork chop and french beans were also well cooked. Overall it was an enjoyable meal …
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!
Good energy in the restaurant. Pretty big portion and huge variety - probably better to go with a bigger group. We went during a weekend lunch time so it was kind of hectic in there but the food was good. Intense flavors + intense energy = good times.
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!
