Proprietor Derwin, who holds a diploma in animation, apprenticed under a chicken rice master for a month to pick up the basics. He improved on what he learned to create the chicken that's got our Tastemakers ooh-ing and aah-ing over today. Tastemaker Zhihui Lim likes that the Chicken ($16 for half, $32 for whole) is silky smooth, very tender and succulent β€” this applies to the steamed and roasted versions, both of which she says are delicious. If you have to pick one though, take her advice and go with the roasted β€” according to Tastemaker Xing Wei Chua, the lightly crisped skin "crackles with a bite". Don't miss out on stellar side dishes like the smooth tofu drenched in Thai chili sauce and crunchy kai lan slicked in flavoursome oyster sauce. You can choose to pair the chicken with fluffy rice or noodles tossed in what Tastemaker Zhihui describes to be potent but shiok chilli. Here's an added bonus: the eatery is currently awaiting Halal certification; all its ingredients used are already Halal-certified!
Avg Price: $10 per person
