This is almost a cult. In spite of limited parking, people come from far away to eat or for takeaways (do call and order in advance). Kampong chicken tends to be leaner, and the one here has attractive-looking yellow skin. Otherwise, it tastes the same as the chicken at Five Star Kampong Chicken at River Valley (which is better organised). The chilli and ginger sauces are super yummy, and the chicken liver perfectly cooked. The chicken rice is not oily, but would gain from being more fragrant.

$5.90 for this set, up from $5.00! However, very worth it with the spread and free-flow achar! The soup came with chunks of chicken meat too. Slurppps

Another satisfying plate of fried bee Hoon & mee.
Added fried egg, taukwa & ngoh hiang.
The chilli did combined nicely with these.
Yummy!

Fragrant chicken rice with tender and flavourful meat. Chili sauce is well done too. Queue can be very long and slow so best to avoid peak mealtimes.

Short walk from Bras Basah mrt so it makes for an affordable eat in town.

Very yummy. Tasty and tender roast chicken with well cooked and not too soft noodles. Definitely a good meal for a single.

One of the premium renditions you can get would be from the renowned Chatterbox, located in Mandarin Orchard Singapore. Alternatively, you can also get their signature chicken rice dish through Express by Chatterbox where they have several local cuisines such as chicken curry and vegetable claypot tofu in their menu. Recently, they have launched a few takeaway/delivery bundles so that you can enjoy these foods at the comfort of your home and what we’ve gotten is the Signature Chicken Rice (boneless quarter chicken) & Signature Chicken Laksa Bundle ($29.80) for 2 pax. There’s also an ongoing promotion of a 20% discount of ala carte items if you choose the takeaway option before 12pm and after 3pm.

Everything you are looking for in a chicken rice can be satisfied with their chicken rice meal; with the fragrant ginger garlic rice and huge chunks of poached chicken drizzled with a soy sauce and sesame oil blend. The chicken laksa was equally comforting as it was lemak enough, paired with their chicken and tofu puffs that soak up all that coconut goodness of a broth.

Some say this is the best chicken rice in Singapore.

𝘿𝙚𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨 𝘽𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝘾𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙣 𝙍𝙞𝙘𝙚 is a hidden gem at the basement food court of Katong Shopping Centre. Their chicken comes in two versions—𝙎𝙩𝙚𝙖𝙢𝙚𝙙 𝘾𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙣 𝙍𝙞𝙘𝙚 ($5) or 𝙍𝙤𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝘾𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙣 𝙍𝙞𝙘𝙚 ($5).

Sprinkled with crispy fried shallots, coriander, julienned carrots, and doused with a flavourful soy sauce, the 𝙎𝙩𝙚𝙖𝙢𝙚𝙙 𝘾𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙣 has a slippery smooth, almost jelly-like skin, while the 𝙍𝙤𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝘾𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙣 has a golden brown crispy skin. The best part of their chicken is—as their name suggests—that they’re boneless, making it super easy to eat. Just bite into the soft and silky chicken meat and enjoy.

Both chicken rice sets come with a plate of yellow 𝙏𝙪𝙧𝙢𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙘 𝙍𝙞𝙘𝙚, a platter of free-flow achar and a big bowl of the soup of the day. The rice, while a bright golden hue, is not as fragrant or flavourful as it looks, though those who enjoy less greasy rice may enjoy it.

Though not the star of the show, the side dishes are what makes Delicious Boneless Chicken Rice a cut above the rest. The 𝙃𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙢𝙖𝙙𝙚 𝘼𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙧, a tangy pickle made of cucumbers, pineapple, chillis and carrots, adds a sweetness and sourness that cuts through the oiliness of the dish. On the day I visited, they were serving 𝘾𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙣 𝘾𝙖𝙗𝙗𝙖𝙜𝙚 𝙎𝙤𝙪𝙥, which came with chunks of white cabbage and chicken. The soup had a home-cooked quality to it, with a subtle sweetness from the cabbage, and was not overly salty or laden with MSG like other chicken rice stalls.

Is it the best chicken rice in Singapore? Personally, I have others I like more (with more aromatic rice), though I’d say that 𝘿𝙚𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨 𝘽𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝘾𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙣 𝙍𝙞𝙘𝙚 is an above-average chicken rice stall. For 5 bucks a set, plus the free refillable side dishes, it is really value-for-money.

PlayFood Verdict: 2.5/3 ★★
