Like Hainanese Kampong Chicken Rice – Farrer Park, Singapore


Like Hainanese Kampong Chicken Rice… No, I’m not telling you I like chicken rice but who doesn’t right? Just that Like is the name of the newly opened chicken rice stall housed in the same coffeeshop as DFTBA Kitchen operated by a middle age aunty sharing her chicken rice recipes with everyone. Not many places actually use kampong chicken for chicken rice due to the lean flesh textures of these free range chicken.

I have mixed reviews from my fellow foodie friends as some liked the rice and some liked the chicken better. Nevertheless even though it is kampong chicken, the prices are pretty reasonable starting from $3 per plate. We didn’t get to try the rice balls cos we were there around closing time but trying the rice itself was suffice.

See aunty closing already, shows how late we were
See the kampong chicken, not fatty and all muscles haha
Side dishes. i would prefer them to be soaked overnight for braised items cos these are prolly cooked the day itself.

Rating: 4/5.

Taste: It just feels healthy eating this haha. Chicken is nice and tender although not as slippery as those famous brands. Rice is nice and fragrant.

Portion: Average

Service: Good

Ambience: Coffee shop

Price: Starts from $3

RTE: Maybe.

UBI 350 – UBI, SINGAPORE


I really hate the fact that I cannot update my blogs as frequent as I want to. Super annoying but work’s a chore hence have to sleep a little later just to type this entry out. 😦

There are just too many bloggers out there doing Top 10s for food places. So I’m starting WIWO for my next few write ups. WIWO simply means, ‘What I Would Eat’ at a certain location featuring 2-5 stalls depending on the place and presence of good food. One good example is UBI 350. UBI 350 is a coffeeshop with hidden gems and I have been patronising 2 stalls for almost a decade now. Check out the pics below:

FAR EAST CHICKEN RICE

My regular order of roast chicken, sio bak and egg. A set like this cost only $5. Cheap right?

They don't have fancy pratas like all the fusion ones. Only good ol' traditional ones. Love a plain and egg

香记鸡饭 (Xiangji Chicken Rice) – Toa Payoh, Singapore


Hey y’all!

Haven’t been writing for the past 2 days as I was super busy packing all my stuffs for my move later today. Yes, I’ll be moving back from Shenzhen back to my homeland Singapore! I dunno if it’s a good thing (Cos there’s so much good food & hazardous for my diet!) but it’s always a good thing to be near family and friends. Will be embarking in a new company dealing with F&B distribution. Will keep you guys posted! Anyways I’m about 95% packed and ready for the movers to swarm in after 2pm! Anyways, am really looking forward to going home… not the unpacking though… >_<

Ok back to food. I was in Toa Payoh during my last trip back and found this pretty awesome chicken rice stall at a coffee shop. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find any review on this stall! But to the peeps living around that area, they know that this chicken rice is blardy good and long queue during peak hours! So I decided I should try it since I haven’t had my lunch. Check out my review below:

Ordered roast chicken with roast pork and an egg for S$5.

Skin of the chicken was nice with slight crisp and so was the roast pork. It was 3pm, so slight crisp is already pretty good. Can't imagine when it's piping hot.

Rice was cook to perfection. Grainy and yet with the right moist. Normally with rice like that I would go for 2 or 3 bowls... but, I'm in control now... ;P

Overall Rating: 4/5. I wanted to try the steam chicken but they ran out of it. But roast chicken was good, with tasty rice and chilli sauce to go with it. Go try it!

Far East Chicken Rice (Blk 350 Ubi Avenue 1)


Ok this is another of my regular place when my office was still at Ubi area. I told myself I must be back to this stall to feature the chicken rice.

I ordered my usual roast chicken with roast pork (siew yoke) combination with braised egg and extra small bowl of rice. The reason is, the rice is cooked to perfection and you can practically eat the rice on its own.

Check out the rice... grain by grain and very soft and fluffy!

The couple came up with the seasoning formula for the roasted chicken. You can taste some herbal taste on the inside bones of the chicken. Very nice. Roasted pork if you're earl like 11am, you can see the translucent fatty parts and the skin is super crispy.

A must-try... Only regulars know how to order this drink. Just tell the person 'Zong Tong' (President) Peng (ice). If hot one, just Zong Tong. Very nice and milky.

Rating: 5/5

Taste: Very nice. The rice make the difference. The chilli as well is very nice and spicy. Some chilli padi is added to give you the extra burn. But I find it a little salty though. Chicken is well seasoned and roasted. Steam chicken is nice and tender too.

Portion: Reasonable. Could be a bit more though. 🙂

Price: 1 person portion of chicken, roast pork, braised egg, rice and extra rice for $5.50.

RTE: Yeah sure… many times. 🙂
