RM3.55 Hainanese Chicken Rice @ Nam Heong ??

11 June 2008

Hainanese chicken rice

Originates and headquatered in Jalan Sultan, chinatown KL since 1938, this famous and evergreen chicken rice has evolved to a modernised ambience and expanded many franchised outlet around the town. My last visit to this or it’s outlets were way too long to be recalled as nowadays, it is more convenient to visit the halal “Chicken Rice Shop” which are avail at most shopping malls and they have a good marketing strategies, which does not neccessary mean good food.

Hainanese Chicken Rice for ONLY RM3.90 nett?? How could this be possible for an air-con and reputable restaurant which has great amount of regular customers and praises?  It has been lingering in my mind for quite sometime until one fine afternoon after taking my lunch at a coffee shop Chilli and ginger sauce and I was still not satisfied with the food that cuts down in amount but constantly increasing price.

The promotion item comes with chinese tea. Out of attonishment, the white chicken in Nam Heong is so close to village chicken as it is tender and firm, juicy, lean and no smell of chicken as it is well prepared and not frozen! With this exception,  I finished all the ‘crispy’ lean skin, haha!

Looking at the extremely affordable price, the ambience which is much comfortable and pleasant than coffee shops plus the superb quality of food and friendly staff, what can I say! Another attraction here is their chilli and ginger, they are simply fresh & fragrant and yet very minimal oil unlike some.

Don’t forget, their Hainanese village chicken is a must try item here. Although the promotion is ending on 15-June-2008, (only at SS2 and USJ outlets, Mon-Fri, n/a on public holidays), the normal price for chicken rice is only RM3.50 and drumstick costs RM0.50 extra as they have not increased the price for quite some time. Yes, it is even cheaper than most that you can find in coffee shops indeed!
