Unlike conventional chicken rice, Hainanese Chicken Rice Ball is known for their chicken rice that is shaped into a ball, steamed chicken that is lightly drizzled in dark sauce, braised pork belly instead of roasted pork and herbal soup instead of chicken soup. The portion is not a lot but the food is not bad. The steamed chicken and braised pork are very tender and go very well with the dark sauce and chilli, which is quite spicy. The herbal soup is sweet and earthy, and the soft taupok soaked up the flavours thoroughly. The chicken rice grains are shorter than usual and quite fragrant, though the rice was a little undercooked when I went, which is not their norm. Our meal was $18 for 3 pax. Good to have this again after a long time!

Chicken Rice Set Meal - two chicken rice balls, Hainanese steamed chicken, braised pork belly and tau pok soup.

The rice balls were huge and fat, generous portion of rice. The rice were a bit sticky as compared to normal chicken rice. Smooth, tender and boneless steamed chicken makes it perfect for lazy people who doesn’t like to debone chicken before eating, heehee. Unlike usual chicken rice soup which is clear in colour and with some chopped spring onions, this tau pok soup is dark in colour and taste like bak kut teh. Peppery and hot, something new to match with chicken rice. I’m not a fan of braised pork belly, so ya....

It's hard to find Chicken Rice balls in Singapore, and while we know of one known one from Malaysia within RWS Malaysia Food Street at Sentosa, little know of this hidden gem in Jalan Besar tucked within a coffeeshop at Upper Dickson Road. This one felt more for novelty's sake however; the chicken was plain and doused only in soy sauce and was of a more than passable quality but bore nothing to impress, while the chicken rice balls were more similar to chicken rice rolled into spheres rather than the glutinous type served at RWS Malaysia Food Street. Chili was rather potent but seemed more flat out spicy; prefer more calamansi in my chicken rice chili.


A palate of chicken with braised pork, a bowl of taukee soup and 2 servings of rice balls cost $8. If I closed my eyes and taste the rice balls I would thought I'm eating lo mai kai (glutinous rice) Rice ball not fragrant enough as chicken rice should be. Chicken was alright but portion not exactly generous. Braised pork was thinly sliced and tasted rather normal. The soup was bland but prob ur best bet among the whole set. Not recommended unless u just wanna try how rice balls taste like. I think they prob have better ones in msia
