Mr. Chicken Rice at Downtown East

Set B Chicken Rice

I recall seeing a Makansutra TV episode about this place, where a former Chatterbox chef (yes, another one) setup his own shop, and where the chili sauce was supposed to be nearly lethal. We were in the neighborhood today and we thus stopped by here to see what the big deal was (1 Pasir Ris Close #02-120, 6582-1302).

The good thing was that the chili sauce was indeed spicier than most others. It wasn't as spicy as Big Bird's, but it was good enough. Unfortunately, I didn't really care much for everything else. The rice was dry and lacked aroma, while both the ginger sauce and the chicken itself were annoyingly sweet. If I come back here, it will be solely for that chili sauce.
