These chickens did not die in vain.
The first time my dad brought our family to this restaurant, I internally doubted his proclamation that therein lay “one of the best chicken rice in Singapore!”. Situated in a nondescript location, and having car workshops as its neighbors, Yeo Keng Nam can easily be dismissed as being shady and unclean. However, brave through your initial doubts and you will be rewarded with delicious chicken rice!
The chicken stock and garlic taste permeates every single grain of rice, going beautifully well with or without the chicken. Truthfully, the rice sold here is so flavorful that I wouldn’t mind eating it alone. However, one would be silly to give the chicken a miss as it’s tender and juicy. The restaurant also sells other dishes such as sweet and sour pork and stir-fried beef, all of which are strong contenders in their own right.
Other than its relative inacessibility, I would say that this restaurant is highly recommended, and indeed deserves every single one of its accolades.
