Located in Icom Square,【Classic Chicken Rice】is the place to go. What’s so special about chicken rice? Here, they have the authentic Hainanese taste! If you think they only sell chicken rice, you are wrong! Claypot soups that are huge and delicious are also served here. Other than that, they have side dishes like chicken feet, vegetables, tofu, braised egg and even umai~ With big portions and affordable prices, this is a great place to visit for lunch!

Of course, you have to try the「Hainanese Chicken Rice」 if you are here! They have both「Steamed Chicken」and「Roasted Chicken」 here. For me, the real star is the Steamed Chicken! Every bite is tender and smooth. And for this big portion, it’s only RM5.50~ For any good Hainanese Chicken Rice, they will have their specially made sambal and chilli sauce. Yes, they have that, and it’s super appetizing~

To add to your satisfaction, you can add on a hot claypot soup your meal! They have 「Herbal Chicken」,「Red Wine Chicken」,「Braised Lotus & Peanut Soup」,「Kacang Ma Chicken」,「Chicken Curry」and「Claypot Tofu」. For someone like myself who’s been away from home for a long time now, the soup, especially the「Herbal Chicken」and「Braised Lotus & Peanut Soup」, is like “chicken soup for the soul” and really reminded me of home. And guess what, with the amount of filling in it, it’s only RM6.50! I’ll be back for it again~

For a chicken rice shop, they have soooo many side dishes! The most special are the the「Glass Chicken Feet」and the「Umai Udang」, which are actually cold dishes! The「Glass Chicken Feet」is appetizing, sweet and sour, and not too spicy. The bones were removed so it’s convenient to eat too. As for the Umai Udang, the sour and spicy taste opens up your palette makes you want more~
