It didn’t…

No, it didn’t disappoint me, not at all! As a matter of fact, I quite enjoyed what I had from this stall…

here. Believe it or not, I think the last time I was here was ten years ago in 2012!

Actually, I had another place in mind – this one located back to back to this place that was famous for its VERY cheap chicken rice and yes, I did have it once at one of its former locations and it was good. When I got there, I saw that they did not have any poached/steamed chicken. After the very nice one that we had that day, I was looking forward to having it again. In the end, I went back to where I came from to the aforementioned stall.

I asked for the drumstick and the nice guy deboned it…

…prior to serving and yes, it was really very very nice. I loved it!

I also asked for some char siew (barbecued pork) and yes, it was very well charred, very well-caramelised with its lovely smoky flavour. Unfortunately, the snapshot I took of it got lost in the process of uploading here and there but you can get a glimpse of it in the above photograph and this one here below…

Yes, of course, I could not resist asking for the stewed eggs!

When the rice…

…was served, I caught the whiff of its very lovely fragrance but unfortunately, I thought it was a little salty and not oily enough and apart from that, the complimentary soup was so bland that it did not merit a second sip.

On the whole, however, I enjoyed everything (RM7.50) – the typical chicken rice chili dip…

…that came with it did help in no small way.

If ever I should be looking for some decently nice chicken rice, I’d probably come this way again…or if I want to tapao some very nice poached/steamed chicken and char siew home, I know exactly where I can head to to get what I want!
