The Original Singapore Chicken Rice

When: October 28, 2010

Truth to tell, I'm not a big fan of Singaporean food except laksa. True to my on-going quest to try affordable yet authentic Singaporean  fare, I gave the cuisine another try. This time, it's at The Original Singapore Chicken Rice. 

Mama and I got curious of this simple-looking restaurant in the unnoticed portion of Shopwise Arcade. My description may be so lame, but the food there is really worth a try. The best thing about our dinner? It's pretty affordable and a nice alternative from the fastfood chains in the area.

White chicken rice meal - "cool" moist white chicken and "warm" flavorful chicken rice served with a tangy special sweet chili sauce and Singapore achara (Php 95)

I enjoyed my white chicken rice. The  chicken rice wasn't as flavorful as I'd hoped, though. It's sort of a miracle for me to say that, considering my not-so-good white chicken rice (or Singapore chicken rice) experience in the past with the BF. Click here and here. 

Nasi lemak (menu says: a unique breakfast and excellent merienda) - premium rice cooked in cooconut cream served with crispy dilis, sweet crunchy nuts, a slice of omelet and a special sweet chili sauce (Php 35)

You bet, it's only Php 35! Mama had this and I can tell that she ordered this to satisfy her curious self. You have to mix all the ingredients together to fully enjoy the nasi lemak. I find it weird, sorry. :)
