When I think of Singapore, I always ended up craving for Laksa and Chicken Rice. Last week, I got an sms invite for a food tasting event in one of the newest fast food in Cubao – The Original Singapore Chicken Rice. Finally, the delicious White Chicken Rice is now available in a food chain and its really really affordable. Can you imagine a set meal of Chicken Rice, ginger and chili sauce, chicken soup and freshly squeezed Calamansi Juice for only P110?
Singapore Chicken Rice all started in Mandarin Orchard Hotel in Singapore and made famous by Chef Steven Lim. Now this famous award-winning food from Chatterbox is now being served in almost all five star restaurants around the world. After Chef Steven Lim – the Food and Beverage director of Mandarin Orchard Hotel retired, Shyan Lim, his son continued the legacy by establishing a restaurant wherein everyone can enjoy the popular dish in a very affordable way.
I really enjoyed the Chicken Rice, It tasted almost the same as the one I’ve had in Mandarin Hotel couple of months back. Another interesting and a must try dish in the restaurant is the Pancit Chino, for only P55 per serving – you can now enjoy a delicious stir fried egg noodles hmmm It’s definitely better than Chowking Pancit Canton. It tastes like Chow Mien but Pancit Chino is stir fried with fresh eggs before being served, adding more aroma and delightful taste.
I recommend that you try their sweet Dinosaur Drink – Its a cold Indian drink made from chocolate shake (Milo) with overflowing chocolate powder on top – truly one of the best chocolate shakes Ive had in years.
Shyan Lim also let us sample their soon to be available Oni – A dessert made from Taro and Purple Yam Ice cream. This dessert is usually served after a wedding in Singapore and Malaysia.
Its a fine dining food in a hawkers price!!!. I will definitely go back soon to tryout other the Asian dishes on their Menu.
