A new chicken rice shop opened in Damansara Uptown. Yay! So what did I do?
Yup, I dragged my partner there. I have been longing for chicken rice but it is not so convenient to go to the one that I love at Jalan Gasing.
We got ourselves a barley lime to share. Very jimat heh..heh...
For a change, I decided to have the roasted chicken.
Then I couldn't resist an order of siew yoke.
And what's chicken rice without the rice?
Sigh....The rice fell short in terms of taste and fragrance. It was almost like ordinary rice.
The soup that came with it was very bland and diluted. This is not going well.
The siew yoke was very lean and very dry and did not taste like siew yoke.
As for the chicken, it was just ok.
The beansprouts? Also just ok...
I kind of felt bad bringing my partner here. But this is the only way to find out if it was any good. Since I did not have anything nice to say, I shall not mention the name of this place.
At least you gave it a try and can decide you like it or not.ReplyDelete
Yup, not going there anymore :(Delete
lean siew yoke is for me. when i eat chicken rice i will order plain white rice or brown rice if they have it and not chicken rice. lol! i guess no point asking you the price since you will never be going back there. what did your partner say?ReplyDelete
My partner agreed that it wasn't good. If I remember correctly the dinner cost us RM53.Delete
Aha! I suspect that shop is Sing Kee Restaurant which is a branch from Taman Desa. Correct boh? I lived in Taman Desa for 10 years and saw this outlet enjoying packed full house at lunch hours. To me, I loved their Chai Boey and crispy Wukok.ReplyDelete
That's the one and unfortunately this branch did not live up to the reputation of the original one (which I have not tried). Too bad :(Delete
No try, won't know whether if it's nice anot ya...ReplyDelete
What is siew yok, look like, uh..i dunno lah.ReplyDelete
That one non-halal. Tak sedap pon.Delete
Yes, they don't look very appetizing, there was once I went to chicken rice at a restaurant, the rice was just plain white rice and not the authentic chicken rice, disappointedReplyDelete
*went to eat chicken riceDelete
Me too disappointed. Thought that I would have a nice chicken rice place to go nearby.Delete
It looks so good in the photos. What a shame it didn't live up to expectations.ReplyDelete
Looks can be deceiving. I doubt there will be a second visit.Delete
I've been trying out a lot of this around here, taking a break from The Malay nasi campur for a while. Been blogging a lot about those. Had a post Monday, one more coming up real soon.ReplyDelete
Yes, I read it :) Not all are good.Delete
Ooo, for me, the oiliness and aroma are the reasons I eat chicken rice ... ya, I do feel that many restaurants lack that ... I used to take it for granted cos my grandmother would cook really fragrant and flavorful chicken rice at home, and it always seemed easy to her :)ReplyDelete
You got that right - the flavor is in the fat! My mum does a really good chicken rice too but she cooked it only once or twice (as far as I remember) because she did not want us to eat too much oily food.Delete
Oh dear, too bad it didn't turn out good for you. You don't have to feel bad for dragging your partner here, I drag my spouse to many curry laksa places too but none has bettered his favourite stall so far but we won't know unless we try, right? ;)ReplyDelete
hee..hee...that's right :) We have to take a risk to find good food!Delete
Aiya that's too bad.. calories wasted :(ReplyDelete
Yes, so wasted :(Delete
Aiyah... what a pity...ReplyDelete
Yeah...kecewa and hampa...Delete
The roasted chicken looks good... siew yoke also ngam for me cos less fat.. but a bit juicier would be better... :)ReplyDelete
The taste not so great unfortunately.Delete
Hmm.... new chicken rice shop in Damansara Uptown, get it! LOLReplyDelete
hah..hah..no need to go lah :)Delete
Yalor, get it means if I found that new shop I will make sure I don't bong chan, haha!Delete
Siewyork.. Sedap tu PH. Feveret SB.. Lalalaaa..ReplyDelete
Oh! High 5 Sue Bee :DDelete
Harga macamana PH? Mahal ke biasa biasa? Kalau biasa biasa , kira oklah kot dengan rasa yang i rasa u macam tak berapa puas hati tu hihi.....ReplyDelete
Tak per, lepas ni try aje buat Nasi Ayam sendiri eh.... barulah puas hati, ye dak ...
Kira mahal jugak lah RM53. Kalau sedap takpe. OK Hainom, nanti PH masak kat rumah hee..hee..Delete
I don't know if it is just me or what, but this recent 2 years, I feel that the chicken rice quality in KL as a whole... are not what it used to be. The few that I thought were decent, were not anymore... Bland and tough meats these days...ReplyDelete
You may be right. Only one or two places do more than decent chicken rice. That's quite sad.Delete
Nowadays I seldom eat chicken rice. I prefer roasted duck and siew yoke. Too bad the food not up to your taste and expectation. Very disappointing.ReplyDelete
I like roasted duck too. Yeah, I was disappointed with the chicken rice.Delete
Indah hidangan nya saja ye PH..ReplyDelete
Bila makan .. eemmmmm..
dah tu tak bebaloi dengan harga..
CH hari sabtu lepas baru buat Nasi Ayam sendiri..
Berbaloi makan bertambah dengan anak2 hahhaha..
Buat sendiri lagi sedap dan lagi jimat. Bijak CH!Delete
