a Malaysian chicken story

...the 2nd impression

Since June 2000, "The Chicken Rice Shop" halal chain of chicken rice family restaurants serving "grandmother's traditional Hainanese secret recipe chicken rice" and a special selection of local Malaysian delicacies has spread its wings far n wide across Malaysia.

...here in their packed Subang Parade (PJ) outlet one August Sunday afternoon, a quickie of their popular single combo set of streamed white chickens , fragrant oiled (yellowish) rice , boiled beansprouts , 2 mini pai tee ( a kind of pretty nyonya influenced vegetable roll ) , a soft drink , complete with jelly dessert and the usual soup and chilli/ginger sauces for RM13.99
has re-aligned our previously poor first impressions of their shop in Giant Hypermarket, Shah Alam.

This second time , every item seemed fresh and the tender white chicken meat delivered as close as what was promised, right down to the all-important looks...n feel

Wait for our review of their other Malaysian Favourites ( esp their eye popping curry mee offering at RM9.99 )

NB : as is usual with this kind of all day aromatic lingering heavily Chinese soya sauced chickens n beansprouts , always visit the washroom after the feast to properly unsauce your salty lips n collar

And I can eat the chicken rice 's rice (without the chicken) with the sauces only!

I have walked past their branches before but not tempted to walk in. Luckily, I have access to many local chicken rice stalls in coffee shops whenever i visit malaysia.

anon ( bestfoodjunction)
tks for info and SS15, which we are also familiar . we shall check it out yr site soon !

of course you are right about shabby stalls, they are the classic backstreets and side lanes ! tho occassionally we walk to malls to recalibrate and check out some cool hip ladies. Our best Chinese chicken rice shop is still in that SS4 ( opposite Tmn Mayang, PJ)corner lot ( Bentong style)n a few great ones in Ipoh

so does that make you a glutton , too? LOL !

we do not think so( anybody aware ?) , kpg chickens in big shops is a rarity and probably not popular in KL for its toughness n skinniness( n "city" price )

yes , we have plenty of small Chinese chicken rice shops here n there tho the Chicken Rice Shop is the biggest & most modern( assembler ) chain, and then very popular with many Malay customers( something which astute non-Malay businessmen are noticing n targetting of late n scrambling for a piece of the yet untapped cake)

chicken to chicken the Chicken Rice shop is average among real unhalal Chinese chicken rice ( the real thing) operators

the Shah Alam Giant outlet was deficient in all depts, so much so for consistency ( biggest problem with chains ). you will need to retry ( n refresh )
