"Can he stun us as he did in Singapore?"
Lauded to the stars in Singapore, what started as a humble chicken rice stall has evolved due to international fandom. Having been unable to visit Singapore for a while, I was happy to find out they opened a branch in KL so I could see what all the fuss was about. Snaking through the tourists in Chinatown I found the shopfront between lunch and dinner, the time least people are out.
I ordered some chicken, rice and greens. The price was probably some of the cheapest Michelin food you'll ever get.
The Chicken was served cold which is somewhat of a theme in Malaysia and took some getting used to. I'm definitely in the corner of liking my food hot, but beggars can't be choosers.
Moist chicken, decent drippings, some peanuts and crunchy greens made a perfect lunch. It wasn't the best chicken rice I've ever eaten, but it was good. One day i'll visit the OG spot in Singapore and see how much better, if any, it is.
These recommendations are just personal opinions based on my palate, things change, chefs get fired or replaced, places open-close, relocate, so take it all with a pinch of MSG and discover your own gems too. But please do try a few of these, they have been researched exhaustively.
