One of the better spots for chicken rice in the Orchard Road area is “Hainanese Delicacy” located at #05-116 in Far East Plaza. Their version of the iconic Singapore dish seems lighter which is good news for those of you who are more health-conscious.
Acceptably fragrant, the rice here is not oily (although I love the unabashedly rich style myself) and thus, you’ll need to be ok with the slight clumpiness.
Their chicken always looks and tastes clean because they also go easy on the seasoning and oil for it. Hence, I consider it vital to add on a lot of the sauces - chilli, ginger and dark soya, for proper shiokness.
FYI - our above order of half a chicken, blanched beansprouts and two bowls of rice came to about $24.
