Vicky was pretty set on trying out this place. She found it on a food blog from a Taiwanese person that relocated to the area. The author gave it a thumbs up, so why not. Can’t go wrong trying all the chicken rice dishes of the world. I was curious to see how this compared to that of Singapore and Hong Kong’s version.
The place was located at a busy intersection. Three levels overlooked the traffic below and offered indoor and outdoor balcony seating. There weren’t too many people, only two other groups, both of which were foreigners. Having at least one group of locals would have made me more confident of the place. Though, looking at how it was missing the small plastic chairs, I think the locals would rather steer clear of this place. And when I saw the higher prices, I knew exactly why there weren’t locals here. Why pay double what you normally pay for. Well, for me, it would be for the cleanliness and not have a blast of exhaust after every bite. Call me crazy, but that’s how I’d rather eat.
Long story short, stick with the com ga, chicken rice.

Verdict: Check this place out. And if you need a change from the Old Quarters, get out to this place for a good meal.
