My opinion:

Ping Xiang means “tasting fragrant food” in Chinese. The owners have taken over stall 3 from Shi Chang Le Mixed Vegetable Rice. It is a very strange scenario as Shi Chang Le lasted less than 2 months in the renovated Bedok Interchange Food Centre. This will show people how competitive and tough Singapore food industry really is. Ping Xiang sells traditional Singapore chicken rice and roasted delicacies. For this 2015 food review, I have tried their chicken cutlet rice for $3.50 and was not impressed.

Rice was well cooked and had chicken fragrance. The owners even added carrot and vegetable slices to increase the food’s flavor. Chili was hot and spicy, perfect for chicken rice.

Their food’s only weak point was the poor quality of the meat ingredients. Chicken cutlets were not crispy enough, slightly sticky and had a strange bitter taste. Honestly, my mother had to help me finish all the remaining food items. This was the first time that I wasted chicken meat from a Singapore hawker stall.

On 1st February 2016, my mother and I revisited Pin Xiang and tasted their roasted chicken thigh rice for $3.50. There were 7 pieces of chicken thigh meat, 2 tomato slices, a few sweet veggies and moderate amount of rice in our food portion. Although the thigh meat was juicy, soft and tender, they were too little and the chicken skin was not crispy enough. Rice was well cooked and had chicken fragrance. Therefore, we decided to slightly improve their food rating from 63/100 to 68/100.

Ways for the owners to improve their food ratings:

Thoroughly review the chicken cutlets’ preparation process and add more meat ingredients for future customers.

    Dishonest Stall. Ordered half a chicken for takeaway. Only discovered the drumstick is missing after opening.

    Contrary to the review, I actually found the chicken tasty and that the rice was not too oily. They served “ABC” corn soup too which was a pleasant surprise.

    A good deal for $3 I would say.
