Probably one of the most famous chicken rice shop in Singapore, Delicious Boneless Chicken Rice in Katong Shopping Centre gathers a huge crowd who are willing to queue to have our national dish. We decided to brave the queue and got our spread in about 30 mins.

We got the mixture chicken set for 4 ($26) which came in a huge plate. Both roasted chicken and steamed chicken were doused in a sweet savoury sauce and topped with loads of fried garlic. I must say that their quality of chicken still remained rather high, as the chicken was moist, flavourful and most importantly fresh. The skin of the roasted chicken was the best, as there was the added caramelised flavour of rendered fat.

The chicken rice came with 2 different kind of soups: a black herbal one and a standard cabbage soup. The black herbal one contains a chicken feet, and the herbal flavour was quite mild. The cabbage soup was flavourful but abit too peppery for my liking. The achar that came with the set was delightful due to the large chunks of seasoned pineapple that were good appetizers!

Actually for the portion of meat given, it's actually quite worth it. The only complaint should be the rice itself, as it wasn't as flavourful as we wanted it to be. Oh and their chilli deserves a shout out too, as it was not too spicy, but had the perfect amount of vinegar and garlic to pair with the savoury chicken 😍

Everyone knows they are one of the more popular chicken rice in SG and they now have an electronic queue number system where diners can place orders at the kiosk machine.

I ordered a quarter chicken with a mix of roasted and steamed chicken. The steamed chicken is tender and juicy with jelly-like skin while the roasted chicken is also succulent and more flavourful with nice crisp skin. It tasted even more delicious with the umami soy sauce and fried garlic bits. Each order also comes with free-flow soup and achar that makes it a fulfilling and hearty meal 》$13.30 + $1 Rice

This is definitely not the first or last time I am going to write about Katong Mei Wei chicken rice.

Located in a corner of the basement of Katong Shopping Centre, Mei Wei attracts foodies from all over Singapore for their chicken rice. This is one of my favourite Hainanese chicken rice because the poached chicken is always consistently good and the soy sauce drizzled over it is very savoury and perfect with rice. The chilli packs a good amount of heat and garlic and I love that they come with achar and boiled soups.

Yes, it's a little pricey but that's because you get a real complete meal with the achar and soups on the side. The soups are real proper boiler soups and I really love their cabbage chicken feet soup or winter melon pork rib soups. You do get chunks of pork ribs and chicken feet in the soup - these guys are definitely not playing around with their soups.

Mei Wei has since been taken over by their 2nd G owner. He has cut down on queueing and waiting time by instituting a proper queue system and collection system. The only downside is that the achar and soups no longer appear to be free flow and they are a lot stinger with their condiments which you can no longer help yourself to!

Formerly known as Delicious Boneless Chicken Rice since their founding in 1989, 2nd-generation owner (and actor/dancer) Soki Wu carries on the family legacy serving fresh, boneless, and delicious chicken rice.
.
Both versions of their chicken, poached and roasted, fare much better because of the robust gravy, lending meaty salty savoury sweet flavour to the freshness of the tender chicken. Enhanced with crispy fried garlic chips with vegetal salty savoury spice notes.
.
The rice tends towards dry and fluffy, with mild grainy sweet flavour. But for this price, you also get a large bowl of double-boiled vegetable soup, filled with chunks of soft stewed cabbage and carrots with vegetal sweet earthy peppery spice flavour.
.
Also included is a unlimited serving of fresh crunchy juicy achar (cucumbers, red onions, pineapple, red chili) with bright vegetal tangy sour sweet spicy flavour, shiok.

So bad, perhaps because it's breast meat, perhaps because it's takeaway. It's missing their iconic soup. They've also worked on their branding, hence the new box. There are still some elements I can recognise, such as the garnish.
