Chicken rice among the Chinese community in Malaysia has to be one of the most popular and omnipresent foods. Virtually every hawker centre, food court and large coffee shops will have its variant of the Chicken rice. In a sense the Chicken rice has become somewhat of a comfort food for us.
The process of preparing Chicken rice involves poaching the entire chicken at sub-boiling temperatures. The resulting stock is skimmed off and some of the fat and liquid, along with ginger, garlic is used in the cooking of the rice. The whole bird is then roasted, served along with the rice and cucumbers, drenched in sweet gravy or drizzled with dark soy sauce and garlic chili.

Brendan attends speech and Drama class each Saturday noon at KLPac nearby, so most times we will come here to the Jalan Tiong Hawker Centre for an early lunch. On this occasion our usual noodle stall was closed, so we decided on the Chicken rice stall instead.
|time to eat!|
Our good friend Helen has raved about this stall before, and we can understand why. The chicken is scrumptious and roasted to perfection, while the rice is cooked to perfection producing an aroma that teases our taste buds. And with the cost of the entire meal costing RM20 this is definitely a stall for the everyday man.
