White chicken wings with rice

The grainy luster of the chicken rice is the first sight which many Singaporeans will look forward to. Coupled with the aromatic fragrance that is coming out from the rice as well, it is enough to make any person's mouth to water.

Today's lunch takeaway was Chicken Rice from the Lee Kwang Kee Stall at the Kopitiam Food Court in Sun Plaza, Sembawang. I ordered instead of the usual breast meat serving, two pieces of white chicken wings instead. (influenced by my mum)

Each grain of the rice could be clearly seen with the shiny goodness of the chicken oil cooked with it. The bite was firm and gives off a taste which leaves you wanting for more.

The chicken wing pieces was tender and not dry, with the skin being very smooth and soft. Even without the skin, the white chicken is just as delicious. A standard ladle of the light sauce with sesame oil is drizzled over the chicken for that extra kick.

Another offering from the stall is the Fish Otah-Otah (grilled spiced fish paste in banana leaves). Pair this dish with the chicken rice, and they both go well even better. Though, one thing to note is that you should ask the stall holder to grill the Otah-Otah again for you, as they usually prepare it in the morning which tends to leave the serving cold.

However, perhaps this stall's Achilles Heel is their chilli sauce, which could be better. The grade of the chicken rice is not determined by the chicken or the rice alone, the chilli sauce which goes along with it must be good as well. While there is a strong chilli taste in this particular sauce, the mix is a bit thin and not tasty enough. Perhaps it could be better if there was a slight modification to the recipe.

Lee Kwang Kee's chilli sauce

In overall, the chicken rice from Lee Kwang Kee can be considered above average for its good tasty chicken and the rice. A value for money meal at an average of about $4.00-$5.00.

Rating : 3/5

Stall Name : Lee Kwang Kee Chicken Rice

Golden Honey Pineapples - Yum!

Looking for a healthy dessert to complete your meal of chicken rice? Try the Honey Pineapples available at the Fruit Stall located near the entrance of the Sun Plaza Kopitiam Food Court. The pineapples available there are usually very sweet and juicy, and priced at 90cents per slice, it is a deal well worth it.

If you are the type who loves even more juice and sweetness, try the sliced Sarawak pineapples (those in semi-circle shapes) as well!
