My opinion:

The kopitiam sells traditional Singapore char siew rice, chicken rice and roasted delicacies. For this 2016 food review, I have tried their $3.80 white cut chicken rice for lunch. The owners were miserly in giving out food ingredients. There were only 8 pieces of chicken meat, 1 bowl of soup and moderate amount of rice in my food portion.

Chicken meat was juicy, lean, soft, tender and came with silky smooth skin (major plus points). Rice was well cooked but had only mild chicken fragrance. Soup was average tasting but not oily or salty. Chili was not robust, spicy or tasty enough to add any last minute bonus points for the food’s rating.

To sum up, the food here was average tasting and much more expensive than hawker chicken rice. The owners are highly advised to add 2 more pieces of chicken meat and use a more spicy type of chili. For chicken rice fans living in other parts of Singapore, I will suggest you give this stall a miss.
