Shenton Food Hall at Shenton House has been seeing quite a switch-up with the stalls occupying the food court space — there has been a number of new openings of the late within the food hall which includes stalls such as Wok Dragon / Pilav King of Nan Yan, as well as that of Xi Duo; both of which being stalls that serve up Mainland Chinese fare. The latest addition to Shenton Food Hall is King of Chicken Rice, which takes over the stall that is situated right beside Kimberly Thai Kitchen within the air-conditioned area of Shenton Food Hall. Just like any other chicken rice stall that one can commonly find at hawker centres, food courts and coffeeshops, King of Chicken Rice is a stall dedicated in serving up Hainanese chicken rice — its main offerings comprises of Steamed Chicken and Roasted Chicken Rice, though they do also offer a Spicy Fried Chicken Rice on the menu as well. Apart from the individually-portioned chicken plus rice dishes, King of Chicken Rice also serves up their birds in either whole, half or quarters — the also do serve up a variety of side dishes such as that of Braised Tofu, Chicken Gizzards, Oyster Veg for those whom are looking to share a dish across the table.

The Steam Chicken Rice from King of Chicken Rice doesn’t come with any surprises — the chicken comes separate from the rice here, with the chicken being served atop a bed of beansprouts that lays beneath. They both also come accompanied with a bowl of soup by the side as well, while patrons can help themselves to the chilli, soy sauce and ginger that is being placed at the self-service area right beside the counter. Overall, the Steam Chicken Rice at King of Chicken Rice is fairly pedestrian — the rice itself being a little bit on the drier side and could have been a bit more flavourful, though the emphasis seems to be placed more on the chicken here. The chicken was in its own right, pretty decently executed — the skin is no doubt not quite as gelatinous as how some other more established names would do it, but we would say that at least the flesh was reasonably juicy and tender; lightly flavoured by the light soy sauce that was being drizzled atop, while the beansprouts beneath provided that crunch for a variance of textures. The chili provided on the side does help to provide a good texture and some flavour to the rice; zippy and tangy as it should though somewhat milder than most chili that we have came across from other stalls serving up Hainanese chicken rice — meanwhile, the bowl of soup comes with relatively clean flavours, though does carry a hint of herbal finish towards the end.

Bearing in mind that we had decided to make our visit to King of Chicken Rice whilst they were having their opening promotion where patrons will be able to enjoy their individually-sized portion of the Roasted / Steam Chicken Rice at $1.50 from 17 April 2023 to 20 April 2023, there was nothing much that we can complain given the price point of which that we were being charged at — the Hainanese chicken rice served up at King of Chicken Rice being a rather decent offering that is comparable to most other stalls serving up the same all around the island; we have definitely had worse. That being said, at its full price without the opening promotion at $4.50, King of Chicken Rice’s Hainanese chicken rice can be said as average at best — no doubt the quality of steamed chicken does seem to resonate the price, though we do feel that there are certainly other spots that would do better at Hainanese chicken rice than them; expectations are kinda set especially with a name like what they have chosen to adopt. Nonetheless, King of Chicken Rice does work as a decent dining option for those looking for an affordable spot to lunch at within the Central Business District — with the individually-sized Roasted / Steam Chicken Rice and the Spicy Fried Chicken Rice being priced at $4.50 and $5.50 respectively, King of Chicken Rice does feel like a stall wallet-friendly and fuss-free enough for office folks to settle their weekday lunches at.
