Don't be fazed by the queue snaking out of the basement of Katong Shopping Centre. While the moist chicken is excellent and comes doused in a savoury sauce and topped with fried garlic bits, it is really the unusual complimentary sidekicks that people are queuing for. Each portion of Chicken Rice ($5) comes with free flow achar and a big bowl of soup cooked with love. The soups change from time to time, but standouts include the chicken cabbage carrot soup and the lotus root peanut soup.
