Well... it’s a bit of a mixed bag here at Jew Kit.
.
I’ve long been told that Jew Kit has some pretty underrated chicken rice, so when I found myself at Bukit Timah running errands, I thought it the perfect opportunity to confirm for myself whether these recommendations ring true.
.
Unfortunately, the rice was severely lacking fragrance nor texture, and the braised beancurd served on the side of the Set C ($6) tasted like it must’ve been braised in a tub of plain water. However, the chicken slices were decently firm and moist, and had a brushing of a savoury dressing with a nice chicken oil flavour to it. It semi made up for the lackluster flavour of the rice.
.
The soup served on the side was also, surprisingly, really good. Most chicken rice places have their soup as a side thought, but for some reason, it might’ve been the best thing I had at Jew Kit. It had a strong chicken bone flavour to it, and didn’t taste overtly salty or plain, just clear, strong chicken notes in every spoonful.
.
I also had the Hainanese Pork Ball soup ($8) as a side. It was decent, very old school style, with nicely flavoured, rough, hand made fatty pork balls, but for some reason, lettuce was substituted for the usual Chinese cabbage found in this soup, and I don’t think it’s much of an improvement. .
It’s was a pleasing enough meal if you’re craving chicken rice in the area, but I wouldn’t make any specific trips down to have it. It’s worth a note that they have an extensive tze char menu in addition to their chicken rice, so that may be worth a look.
