Chicken Rice
My love for chicken rice is unlike other local favourites and I’m always trying to find new gems. This round was at Leong Yeow’s Famous Waterloo Street Hainanese Chicken Rice. For half a chicken, 2 plates of rice and a plate of char siew, the damage was $20. We opted for the white chicken as it tends to have a softer texture than its roasted compatriot. Breaking down the chicken parts, my favourite is always the thigh but the chicken breast is also an indicator of how well the chicken is done. Overall, the breast was rather dry while the thigh meat was ok. The skin was delicious though the rice wasn’t memorable. The char siew was average. I’ll eat this again if I am in the vicinity but it won’t be something I will crave.
