文昌海南雞飯 Wen Chang Hainan Chicken Rice

2010_04_30 Wen Chang Chicken Rice 005a

Hubby told me he heard from friends that this is one of the best Hainan Chicken Rice in town, and many people have to line up for order. Well known of the tender juicy meat and soft bones, as well as the Five Spices Meat (Loh Bak 卤肉).

That’s make me have the temptation to try it out personally. Thus, one of the Saturday, we drove all the way from mainland to try this out. In fact, was more of convenient sake, we have to have our lunch down town before we could run our errands.

We were there pretty early, and the stall was ready for business. I could smell the rice which was cooked with pine leaf (Pandan Leaf), and garlic. And also see many chickens regardless boiled or roasted hung up nicely on the stall. How could that stop people coming to eat here, right?

Thus, we have the normal order, chicken and loh bak for lunch. Simple, yet delicious, how could anyone resist that, right?

Great chicken rice! I am their loyal supporter since they operate at the corner coffee shop back in Kg Malaba.

This shop is a bit heavy on the seasoning. The best Hainan Chicken Rice(just the rice) we had tried is in Tanjung Tokong.

The best I have had so far is in Singapore during my college days.
