CHICKEN RICE @ TRAVILLION SIN CHEW CHICKEN RICE, JLN. ANG CHENGHO, KUCHING


I written on this eatery before, when it was called Sin Chew Chicken Rice. Since it has relocated to this shop, it adds a prefix of sort to its name to let people know of its origin. Normally, I wouldn't blog on the same food/place again after a short spell. But then, the roller canvas blind in front of the shop caught my eyes:

''We also serve delicious Singapore Mandarin Hotel's signature Chicken Rice...''

Such bold statement deserves a second scrutiny...

... even though my Mandarin's experience was umpteen years ago, this one hardly rekindles a candle. First off, the soup is chicken bones bag dipped into hot water for 3 minutes; it would have worked fine if it was tea bag. The rice, although puffy and light, is a borderline case of hit and miss, sorely seeking a more defined chicken aroma. The chicken bones reek blood; even a splash of sesame oil and light soy sauce can't disguise the unpleasant sight of the under-cooked portion of the chicken.



All that being said, this place seems to do a vanishing act when I passed by last week; there's a new eatery in its place. Any clue, anyone?

I saw the owner Ah Meng (always with his tall chef hat) set up a stall selling fried noodle/kway teow at padugan old kopitiam (first shop under the arch)in the morning but only for a month or less between dec 2009 till jan 2010.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
