Leong Hainanese Chicken Rice
One day, we were happily eating our sio bak when there was this strong chicken rice aroma that came from Leong Hainanese Chicken Rice. So we decided to order a plate of chicken drumstick to try.
The friendly boss, Uncle Leong, said to me,”Why eat drumstick? Try my chicken breast!” So he came with a plate of drumstick, a free plate of chicken breast, rice and chilli. Now, I have become his regular customer.
Uncle Leong used to be the head chef for“稻香村山芭鸡”shop in Novena Ville. But it closed down in 2007 due the outbreak of bird flu disease. About 2 years ago, Uncle Leong decided to set up his own chicken rice stall in Shunfu Market and the rest is history.
The plate of chicken on our table doesn’t look any different from other chicken rice but once you have tried it, you can feel a difference in the texture of the meat. I usually only take drumstick for my chicken rice but Uncle Leong insisted that I try his chicken breast. Apologise that I didn’t took a photo of the chicken breast, because it didn’t appeal to me at first. But hey, the chicken breast is also very tender and flavourful. Mind you, the plate was clean, he didn’t drizzle any soy sauce into the chicken and I could really taste the sweetness of the meat.
As for the chicken drumstick, you can see the glistering chicken skin and the meat was very succulent! Besides the chicken, Uncle Leong also pays attention to the rice as well. The rice was infused with ginger and chicken stock, and the grains are very fluffy. Uncle Leong said,”这盘鸡饭吃起来有妈妈的味道。”
Yes, I agree. This plate of chicken rice 有妈妈的味道。After it was published in the newspaper, this stall is booming with business. So be there early! Each plate of chicken rice costs $2.80.
