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 =)

This laksa stall is commonly known as the ‘928 Yishun Laksa’. Why 928? Because this tiny stall is situated at a little corner of Blk 928. This is Yishun’s most famous and best laksa. It is a household name in Yishun. And this stall has been around since I was in Secondary school.

Go to the correct stall. The stall is at the right side of the picture above. Do take note at the left side of the picture with the shutter down, there is a similar laksa stall there. For me, I prefer the one at the right, which is sells the best laksa in Yishun.
Its just a tiny stall. But dun under estimate its the power. Laksa comes at $2.50 or $3.00. Yes, the owner sells laksa only. And there is always a queue. Oh yes, this stall is featured frequently on TV (food shows), magazines and websites for example Makansutra.
Laksa (large) $3.00
Forgot to tell the uncle no hum. As the saying goes, a picture speaks a thousand words. Look at the ingredients. Reasonable amount of fish cakes, dried toufu, crabsticks, fresh bean sprouts, half hard boiled egg, lots of thick bee hoon and hum. Laksa leaves and sambal chilli paste which you can add according to your preference. The laksa gravy is fragrant, rich with bits of dried shrimps, right amount of coconut milk and chilli. It is not oily too. This $3.00 is worth the money.
The downside is that there is limited space to sit and also be prepared to sweat it out eating this as there is only 1 small fan. But I would say this is one laksa worth sweating and paying for.
