Assam Chicken

$8.90 · 11 Reviews

Definitely worth it using beyond. It’s actually filling for 3 pax and the food is great as well.

The dang gui flavor was quite bland but it’s preferred compared to assam flavor. The assam flavor just didn’t goes well with the chicken. Both flavors are not outstanding, but the chicken is succulent and rice is pretty decent too.

(S$9.50 each)

Visited this restaurant because of the Burpple 1-for-1 deal, I would describe this restaurant is a hidden gem among the restaurants in Kallang Wave Mall. We ordered Assam chicken and ginger chicken sets, the drumsticks meat are tendered and goes well with the sauce. Would definitely visit again.

We opted for Assam & yes it had a satisfying sourish taste but sadly without the spicy kick 😏Chicken leg was tender but it was served at a cool temperature, we love, prefer & expect the meat to be hot especially when served in a steaming basket 😐The chicken rice was however very good - fragrant & not oily 🍚
🍗
I topped up for the Imperial Kopi again due to the temptation from the banner and again felt deceived 😶 It lacked the traditional aroma & the taste was not smooth. I liked though it was served with a piece of Ritz round cheese biscuit 🙃
☕️
Honestly, I was not sure if I would be back to try out other flavors of the chicken or other items on the menu. Let’s see 🤔

Imperial Ginger Chicken - the generous portions of ginger on top were just so flavourful and on point
2. Danggui Chicken - the herbal soup was so fragrant and conforming as it was so familiar
3. Sesame Chicken - the thick nutty sesame sauce was interesting, quite like the sesame dressing on salads
4. Curry Chicken - the typical spicy nonya curry
5. Assam Chicken - both spicy and sour
6. Indonesian Style Chicken - sweet and savoury Indonesian BBQ sauce
7. Mala Chicken - the spiciest of them all

I’ve always preferred strong heavy flavors so I liked this better than the dang gui. It was not as sour as I thot. But the sour, sweet and spicy balance was not bad. Just not the regular Assam I’m used to. It was nice on its own, but it didn’t really gel well with the chicken rice. The taste was not compatible so I ended up eating this dish by itself and the rice with chili and dark soy sauce separately.

There are 7 types of chicken rice set in the main menu and yes, 13 Stages serves only chicken legs; there is no breast meat option.
We ordered the Samsui, Sesame and Assam Chicken Rice ($8.90 each) and snacks of chwee kueh (4pcs at $2.90) Samsui Chee Cheong Fun with chicken bits ($4.90), the not a bitsa crispy duck wrap ($6.50), a delightful serving of chicken floss wrap($4.90), with a side dish of imperial salad ($5.50). The prices are inclusive of GST and there is no service charge.
The Chicken sets are all served in bamboo baskets and came with a plate of chicken rice and a bowl of soup. Basically they are all steamed chicken top with different sauces, garnishing and gravy. I like the assam more, which came with vegetables and a generous amount of tangy assam gravy. The chicken is very tender and juicy. The assam gravy is slightly sweet and not spicy.

Really enjoyed this one; probably the best alternative to Soup Restaurant's version if you are craving for something similar but don't have the people around to share a communal plate of Samsui Chicken — this does satisfy those looking for a single portion.

Similar to the Assam Chicken, the Samsui Chicken comes with a thigh and leg for a single portion. The chicken is also very succulent, juicy and tender here, while it comes with a hint of slight sweetness from the liquid it was simmered in; the ginger however doesn't pull through very strongly, but somehow runs at the back of the tongue amidst the sweetness. It works well with their house-made chili (not pictured) which one can help themselves to at the condiment counter — bright, tangy Hainanese Chicken Rice chili that really gives a spicy kick.
