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.
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.
This is actually a bad review for this coffee shop located at Block 811 Hougang Central, just opposite the entrance of Hougang Mall’s main entrance… Dunno why it’s named as a restaurant but that’s not the main issue. The main issue with this place is the drinks stall. The drinks are all overpriced… Overpriced is ok with anyone I guess but at least make your drinks taste good right?
A Kopi-C kosong (coffee with evaporated milk & no sugar) cost $1.20 (or was it $1.30?) and totally watered down! I was basically drinking hot water with a little coffee taste and a little evaporated milk! Drain water may taste even better! I read from foursquare that their milo is also bad! Overheads may be high but come on, not so bad until you scrimp so much from your drinks right?? Imagine it was so bad that I swore I had to write this article! Hope the owner reads this and do some changes for the prices they are charging…
But with all due respect, the chicken rice there is awesome but be prepared to queue during peak hours!
