We ordered roasted chicken on our second visit to this stall as I was recommended that. We had arrived around 1pm and honestly, not that much was left. Obviously, business is good at this stall. Anyway, I thought the chicken itself was very well done - really juicy and flavourful even for the breast meat. The rice was fragrant but we found it a little clumpy that day. Couldn’t resist ordering a plate of the Sio Bak (Roasted Pork Belly) again to share but I must admit, when I ate it with the rice meant for chicken rice, the combination became too salty. More so when I added the chilli sauce.
Note to self: Need to have the Sio Bak with plain rice next time.

Warning: this is not where to come if you are the health-conscious sort because (and I speak only for the roasted meats because those are what I had this afternoon) the fat and salt in them proteins are loud and proud! But that is also precisely why I find the food here so damn tasty 😋😋

From the gorgeous mahogany-coloured Roasted Duck (it’s really juicy) to the black-ish Char Siew (not exactly melt-in-the-mouth but nice and moist) to the salty-of-crackling Sio Bak (packs a powerful crunchiness and is super juicy), there’s no doubt the meats at “Nan Xiang Chicken Rice” have all been seasoned and marinated with a no-holds-barred attitude. Clearly, big flavours is their number one priority, and I love that! The stall’s chilli and ginger sauces also hit the mark - I could not resist splashing them over my rice.

You should be able to find “Nan Xiang Chicken Rice” easily as it is located at a corner coffeeshop next to the Caltex petrol station on Tanjong Katong Road. And for as long as it is open (they ‪start at 9am‬ everyday except for Tuesdays which is their day off), there seems to always be a line of customers out in front. I am sure this scene has not changed much in the last five decades they have been for business.

On my next visit, I plan to try the chicken rice because I got a DM on Instagram from @terenceongwh (who happens to be a regular there) that theirs is very good.

Sadly they sold out their signature roasted meats so i go for their chicken rice.

but there is always such a long queue here and was curious why? It's a chicken rice stall but I've found out that their charsiew is out of this world. The skin of the charsiew got the chowtah taste and there's even a crunch when you bite into it with a balance of lean and fatty meat inside followed by that caramelised chewy end. I'm impressed. #burpple

Great lunch! The roasted chicken, Hong Kong style roast pork belly- Char Siew and Sio Bak. If you are somewhere near here, you should not missed this! Yes! The Char Siew is old school and marvelous! #epochtimesfood

That's a lot of meat for only $6! A queue is always seen here, with people ordering half/whole chicken for takeaway.

This is my ranking of the three meat I ordered:
1 - Roast pork for its crispy skin
2 - Roast chicken with tender juicy flesh and thin chewy skin
3 - Char siew which weren't as charred as I hoped. Can skip this.

I'll choose this stall for my roasts whenever I'm in this area. It felt like an old school and honest stall, at a very affordable price. Missing the roast chicken thigh already..
