No exact stall name. The chicken rice is located at Rochor Food Town. It about 5 to 10 minutes walk from Bugis MRT Station. Located opposite Fu Lu Shou Complex.
Queue for Chicken Rice
There was constantly a queue of about 5 people, sometimes more. Not a achievement considering that there are lots of coffee shops and stalls all around within 2minutes away and there’s even Albert Food Centre 5 minutes away. What makes this place so unique such that there is constantly a queue?
Well, its pricing is how it differentiate itself from other stalls. Look at the menu. Chicken rice sold at $1.80. I have to rack my brain to think when did I encountered a chicken rice sold at such a price.
Chicken Rice $2.60
What I ordered. How come $2.60? Well because I added organs and also rice. still quite cheap yea?
I would say the chicken rice was not lousy. It was in fact slightly above the average range. Maybe because I did not have high expectations considering the price.
Lets start with the plus points first. I like the fact that so many pieces of organs were added. Normally elsewhere when you add organs, they just give you about 3 pieces. Also lots of pieces of chicken meat. The chicken meat was tender! Another plus point. As for rice, was not hard, was fragrant.. not to bad.
The flip side was well presentation of food haha. But come on, for such a price if you expect presentation of food, you must be insane! Well, so I would say the only negative side was lack of cucumbers. had only 1 piece hidden by the chicken.
Bowl of Soup
As expected MSG was added. But bonus, had pieces of old cucumber (Lau Huang Gua) inside.
Overall, its a decent chicken rice. Worth a try.

I always say this is the best chicken rice in Yishun. Whenever I want to eat chicken rice when I am in Yishun or feel hungry, I will normally make a trip down here. This stall is quite famous among those living in this area. But after a recent meal, I am striking it off as the best chicken rice in Yishun (have no idea which is best in Yishun currently). Its still a decent chicken rice though.
Previously, this stall opened till 6pm. Recently, even at 830pm its still open. During lunch hours, there is still a queue, but not to worry, the workers are quite efficient.
Chicken Rice $2.50. Extra bowl of rice $0.30
Last time for $2.50, they will put the chicken on a separate plate with several slices of cucumbers, tomatoes, bits of pineapple and also a piece of corn in the soup. Sadly, these are now missing. But for this price, its still reasonable right.
Sadly, the quality of food has gone down. The grains of rice was fragrant, but many crumbs of rice are stuck together and are hard. The rice is also much more oily compared to last time. The chicken meat was tender but thin and texture was roughly. There give much lesser chicken meat now! Soup without corn was full of MSG. The chilli is still as nice and with the right punch of spiciness for me! The chilli saved the meal!
Standard has dropped. But for $2.50 it is still reasonable compared to food court quality and price. For me, its likely I will give this place a miss and go eat the 928 laksa or try some other food =)
