So this store used to be run by an ex-Chatterbox chef. My dining partner claimed it was his favorite chicken rice in the whole of Singapore (a huge claim since he goes through a plate a day on average) so I was quite excited to try this. We were exceptionally hungry so I ordered 1/2 chicken ($16.80), oyster vegetables ($4.50), their signature tofu ($4.50) and 2 plates of rice. It came with two bowls of clear cabbage soup (MSG loaded to be sure, but tasted good)

First bite of the chicken and I was blown away. It was tender, juicy and flavorful. The skin was silky soft. The dark meat was especially delightful, slipping down my throat easily while the breast meat soaked up the sauce the chicken was seasoned in, bursting with chicken flavor. I only wish I could say the same about the rice, which was definitely underseasoned and slightly dry. The chicken was definitely the highlight in this one.

The tofu side dish was delicious. Piping hot with a crispy outside and soft, silky center, it was paired with a sweet chili sauce. The oyster kailan was definitely overcooked without much crunch to it, but it provided much needed fiber and greens to the meal. And it was generously seasoned with oyster sauce, so no complaints about that.

Overall, a delicious, filling meal. While I don't know if I can agree with my dining partner whether this was the best chicken rice in Singapore, my chicken rice craving and hunger pangs have been satisfied at a very reasonable price.
