sorry for the long delay in updating this spot! have been rather busy with my temp. job and it just ended so i'm once again more free to post some entries before sch starts to take me away again! :)
this time round, me and the bf went over to Chin Chin Eating House along Purvis Street to try out their chicken rice after i've read from ieatishootipost.sg and many other blogs that their chicken rice is quite nice. so being near the area that day, and with no special cravings, we decided to go down into this narrow stretch of road just opp. the national lib to have some chicken for dinner.
upon reaching there, we were at a loss as to what to order. haha. me and my bf are not big eaters and their menu shows all zi char dishes which i guess both of us wont be able to finish. so we were sitting down there, looking all confused. den an auntie came over and she was really friendly, when we asked whether they sell individual plates of chicken rice, she gave us a resounding "YES!" in a really friendly manner. den she recommended us to each take one type of chicken rice - one roasted and one white - so we can get a taste of each.
as you can guess, i decorated this plate of rice! cute right, haha. =x
verdict: i love the texture of both the roasted and white chicken. it was really soft and juicy, and was really supple enough. the bf, on the other hand, thought the chicken was quite normal. haha. he's got high standards. but, there was one thing both of us agree on though, that is, the rice was not fragrant enough. in fact, we felt that the one at my house sells nicer chicken rice, at least the rice is more fragrant and we could literally taste the garlic in our mouths after we finished eating. but not for Chin Chin's rice, since it tasted really bland.
ask me if i'll go back again, well, mayb not. though i would love to try its other dishes except for chicken rice. :)
