Sin Kee Famous Chicken Rice, Mei Ling Food Centre


I had only recently learned about the presence of this particular Sin Kee chicken rice (Mei Lin Food Centre #02-22, Blk 159 Mei Chin Road) stall after having eaten a number of times at the "other" one down at Queenstown which I had thought to be the old stall relocated from the old hawker at Margaret Drive. Whew, that was a long one.

This place turned out to be noticeably better than the previously mentioned location. The chilled meat from the boiled chook was probably slightly more tender, easier to suck off the bone and the savory sesame and soy sauces were probably tastier than the other. The rice however was good that one could simply eat them without the chilli. It had one of the rare winning combination of being greasy enough and yet, light at the same time while being infused with sufficient flavor. It wouldn't be difficult to find an excuse to come back.

Update: 19/08/2011


We returned for a second consecutive day of lunch and this time round, we topped the order up with a side of boiled greens (nai bai). Crunchy stemmed greens with leafy tops that held up their delicious sauce that it was drenched with. This time round, I managed two plates of their rice with nary a drop of chilli and not to any big surprise, it was still all good for me. I guess the broth that was used for cooking must have gone through the painstaking removal of excess grease for the rice to be so well flavored without being heavy. None of that garlic scented burps after lunch as well.

Yes, it's been a while since I've been excited over a chicken rice stall. This one is just gonna be tough to beat.
