I’ve heard of this chicken rice stall for like…. God knows how long. From relatives to friends, all of them swore by it and told me that die die I must try and assured me that I’ll never visit other chicken rice stall again after tasting this particular one.
I’ve tried driving around looking for this stall once but failed, so I got extremely excited when I drove passed it by chance today, after a movie at a nearby mall.
Situated in an alley off Jalan Jintan 2, it is claimed that this stall serve one of the best and most authentic ‘Hainanese Chicken Rice’. While I cannot confirm this, I can attest to the accolades given to this place. Apparently, this place is always pack during lunch hours.
Knowing the trend, I came outside lunch hour, around 2++, short wait and was served almost immediately after seated. On top of the service, the place is also clean and airy.
Hainanese Chicken Rice @ RM 14.00/2pax ~ The chicken does not appear appetizing at first glance but were satisfactory and certainly not the best I’ve ever had. Somehow, it just lacked that aromatic chicken flavor that I was in search for. I didn’t feel like it was extremely out of this world and any better than those served at hawkers.
The rice on the other hand was pretty good. Although it is not of high quality it is still well cooked – not lumpy and has a nice chicken stock fragrance. The chili sauce is worth mentioning too. It makes a perfect complement to the meat and the rice.
Service was pretty quick. The food was fine, although not fantastic, and the price was decent. I think it’s more worth going just to say that I went but I wouldn’t go out of my way to return. . Maybe I came with high expectations after hearing all the praises. To be honest, it’s not the place I’ll linger for. It wasn’t such a big deal after all.
