In Kuching, as in elsewhere, it's not difficult to find good Hainanese Chicken rice that rocks. One of the places that we often go back to is this one.
It took us about 4-5 times going there to actually realise that the name meant Chick King as in King of the Chicks. p/s I think that's his Royal sposs car there.
They've definitely made an effort to zhng the interior of the shop.
It even has it's own customised cooling system.
What else can you say to that, except, COOL.
SMART TIP NO.1 :
When you're there with a few friends, it pays to order for a group. Otherwise they will skimp on the chicken for one person.
They gave us a generous half a chicken for 3 persons.
SMART TIP NO.2
16 & 17 sucks. The brown onions on top give it a very bitter burnt taste.
I never thought much about the side dishes here. After all, we came here for the chicken. But Nee ordered their Thai Style Tofu (No. 12).
It came looking like this, which was pretty gorgeous. Fried crispy tofu in sweet sour sauce.
We took a bite & agreed that it was the best thing we've ever had in a long long while!
NEE: To be completely honest, this place would score about 7.5 to 8 out of 10. This is because like any Hainan Chicken eating places nowadays, somehow I find the chicken a little bland and tasteless. Somehow, the chickens are not as nice and sweet as it used to be. Sad ya. The vegie dishes always have the tendency to have burnt red onions topping. Other than that, everything else is nice. Definitely can try.
