playing nice with chicken rice

with one comment

Look it rhymes. It never rhymes so that’s kind of  big deal.

You know what else is a big deal (in Singapore, anyway)? Chicken rice. Most everyone is a fan of chicken rice. My last few run ins have been just eh. I mean steamed/boiled chicken and some rice. How good could it be.

Apparently, pretty darn good if you get lucky.

This plate was the first plate of chicken rice that made me go ‘mmmmm’.

The chicken was tender and flavorful. No gumminess or blandness in these parts. The rice was garlicky almost fried tasting and not greasy or oily. The ever present chili sauce and dark soy sauce on the side rounded out each bite. Finally, I know what the fuss is about.

Tiong Bahru, you never fail me.
