Hong Kong Chef Brings Authentic Soy Sauce Chicken Rice to Golden Mile Food Centre
May 25, 2023
A new hawker stall specializing in Hong Kong-style Soy Sauce Chicken has emerged in Golden Mile Food Centre.
Chef Rocky, a talented chef from Hong Kong, previously owned Xin Le Wang Cantonese restaurant but had to close it due to the pandemic. However, with things looking up, Chef Rocky decided to make a comeback and opened a stall in Golden Mile Food Centre offering a simple yet authentic plate of Soy Sauce Chicken Rice.
The tender chicken pieces are bathed in a slightly viscous soy sauce, delivering a burst of delicious juices with every bite. Opting for half a chicken ($16) gives you a variety of different parts so I’ll highly recommend that you do that! The sauce was not overpoweringly salty, and paired flawlessly with the fluffy pearl rice. But let me tell you, the real magic happened when I dipped the succulent chicken into their house-made ginger scallion oil—pure bliss! Each plate of soy sauce chicken rice costs $4.50.
Apart from the delectable chicken rice, their springy noodles are a must-try. Chef Rocky’s expertise shines through as each strand had the perfect firmness. Don’t underestimate the small dollop of chili served on the side. Its rich and spicy flavour added an exciting dimension to the dish, rendering me an addict. I couldn’t resist mixing the chilli directly into the noodles.
The Tobiko Shrimp Wanton is another standout item on the menu. These dumplings are generously filled with minced meat, shrimp, and crunchy tobiko, resulting in immensely delicious bites. Go for the Tobiko Shrimp Wanton Noodle or Wanton Soup($5 each).
Overall, while I wouldn’t call it an extraordinary find, the hawker stall offers a satisfactory taste of Hong Kong-style soy sauce chicken. Rocky’s culinary passion shines through in his dishes, and though the food here may not be mind-blowing, it is still worth a visit if you’re in the area and craving some decent soy sauce chicken.
