Ah Boy Chicken Rice @ Choa Chu Kang – Chef Eric Teo’s Favourite Chicken Rice
Chicken rice is a simple dish. But it’s always the simpler dishes that demand the greater work and attention to detail. I have been wanting to write a list of the best chicken rice in Singapore. But there are always tip offs about good chicken rice recommendations, hence it seems like a never ending conquest.
Ah Boy chicken rice stall has been a favourite for our local celebrity chef Eric Teo as he raved about this hidden gem in his Facebook about 2 years back. Our foodie group once paid a visit here on a Sunday but it was unfortunately closed. Since then, I have always been wanting to come back again and try a plate of chicken rice. I have finally did it.
Roasting chicken is an art by itself. Here, the roasted chicken has a crispy and thin skin that we love but the meat was slightly on the dry side. Poached chicken, however, fare much better. It was tender and cooked just right, maintaining a smooth texture. With firm, sweet meat and jelly-like skin doused in a delicious mix of soy sauce, sesame oil, and chicken oil, it gave a slight lift in flavours and we can’t help but to order second and third helpings of rice!
One important elements of fragrant oily rice which was topped with tender chicken. I thought the rice itself is fluffy and loose with a nice aroma and not too greasy. However, I found the tangy chilli dip to be a little watery. We also ordered a sweet and sour tofu which is a good accompaniment to the chicken rice.
Will I come back for the chicken rice? Yes, only if I am around that area and craving for it. Do you have your favourite chicken rice stall? Share with me!
