Despite the many stalls in the hawker centre, “Hup Hong Chicken Rice” stands out from the rest as the only stall with a seemingly endless queue of customers!
I kind of feel sad for its neighbouring stalls, particularly those that are selling the same dish, as they face a great deal of stress & competition from just this stall alone!
I would recommend trying out their Roasted Chicken Rice! For me, what sets it apart from other roasted chicken rice stalls can be attributed to many reasons; for one, the rice is so fragrant that you can literally eat it on its own!
It is soft, chewy in texture & unlike most chicken rice, it is surprisingly not very oily at all, and you can really smell the garlic that is used to cook the rice!
The meat itself is firm and tender, and with every bite you can taste just how moist the chicken is. The chicken skin itself on the other hand, was very delicate and thin in layer, had tasted the rich essence of the heavenly roasted flavor!
The gizzard that “Hup Hong Chicken Rice” offers is unlike any other gizzards that I have tasted before. It is very chewy and delicious, and it goes really well with the chicken rice and their homemade chilli sauce.
The chilli itself packs a punch, and tastes just like the traditional Hainanese chilli. You definitely won’t want to miss it, especially if you love spicy food!
Oh, and did I forget to mention that every plate of chicken rice comes with a serving of their special acchar (Chinese pickles) that tasted sweet and fresh, adding another spectrum of sweetness to the whole dish.
