Shi Mei Hainanese Chicken Rice at Bukit Gombak

October 9, 2016

Hainanese Chicken rice is one of our nation’s treasures and my love for chicken rice is not comparable. I could have chicken rice for lunch everyday, why not? The question is, who serves the best chicken rice in Singapore? This dish is everywhere in Singapore from restaurant to hawker, even your home! There are way too many to pick whose serves the best.

As for myself, I will like to recommend you one of my favorite chicken rice. It has been eight years since my first visit and I am madly in love with the fragrance rice served, mild sticky and flavorful!

Roasted Pork Belly (Sio-Bak) The Sio-Bak comes with crackling skin and a thin layer of fats suitable for those who are much more health conscious. Usually, I will prefer my sio-bak comes with thick layer of fats! Oh well, “Eat first and worry later”!

Hainanese Chicken Ordered a set for two and this is how much we got. The thick sauce poured over the meat looks beautiful and tempting. The sauce is mild starchy and add flavor to the taste. Also, there are crunchy and gently boiled bean sprout underneath the bed of chicken.

The chicken meat is dipped into cold water after cooked to keep the meat tender and succulent.

Thai-Style Deep-fried Tofu The tofu is smooth and soft together with their special sweet and spicy sauce.

Overall, the meal for two cost us under $15. Acceptable pricing for some good local delights. This stall is located near Bukit Gombak MRT Station and do expect long queues and usually the stall closes before mid-afternoon. Worth the wait and calories too. Be sure to be there early!
