Ming Kee Chicken Rice in Bishan
This place (Kim San Leng coffeeshop at 511 Bishan St 13) came as a suggestion last week, and since we were in the neighborhood tonight, we went to go take a look. It wasn't hard to miss; as early as 6 PM, the line was already getting ridiculously long. So long, in fact, that I got a beer to help keep my interest while waiting it out, and by the time I finished it, I still had two thirds more of the line to go!
Anyway, I could see why this place was so popular: the meat was very juicy and cut into generous pieces, and the rice was nice and fluffy. Other than that, there wasn't much to excite me though. The hot sauce was rather boring to me, the soup was so bland that I barely took two sips, and the porridge was very disappointingly made from tasteless plain rice. Overall, the taste here was just a bit too much on the mild side for me.
Well, thanks for the suggestion nonetheless. Maybe if I'm up in this neck of the woods again, I'll try duking out those lines another time, but my first choice is by far still Tian Tian Chicken Rice.
