What makes a good chicken rice? The fragrant rice? The juicy chicken? Or the tangy chili? Chicken rice can be found everywhere in Singapore from hawker to restaurants. Tasty and reasonably priced. Chicken rice is really a local favourites and for most it is even considered as our National dish.
Here’s our top 3 picks.
Yishun 925 Chicken Rice
Anyone staying in the North will be familiar with the brand 925. We mean the block. When a hawker stall is remembered by the block number, you know this is going to be something tasty. And when a chicken rice stall gets the block number as the brand. Nuff’ said.
The chicken here is smooth, drenched in soya sauce, but not too salty. We always go for the 1/2 chicken cause its more worth it.

Kampong Chicken Rice
The difference that you’ll first notice here is the yellow skin chicken and the leaner meat. Kampong Chicken are more popular known for the flavors. Less fat, more lean meat. If you’re going for the healthy version of chicken rice, this here is a top choice.
Don’t forget the thick and spicy chili which adds in a whole new dimension to the chicken rice. The rice is more towards the so – so end. But surprisingly all 3 comes together nicely.
