Best Chicken Rice in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Chicken rice isn’t the most-hyped meal in Penang compared to Char Koey Teow or Nasi Kandar, nevertheless it’s a comfort food that we constantly rush forward to during lunch hours. This deceptively simple dish of luscious poached or roasted chicken served with delicious oiled rice packs a hearty meal. The ubiquitous chicken rice stall can be found all over Penang, yet only a select few have made it to the list of the best recommended chicken rice in Penang.

    This rustic Cantonese restaurant serves mouth-watering dim sum for breakfast and chicken rice for lunch. For decades, the taste has been delightfully preserved and during peak hours, the chopping board thuds never stop! A look at the facade and exterior takes you on a drive down memory lane; the good old 80's before development kicked in. Serving aromatic fragrant rice paired with lean chicken meat in a light soya sauce and garnished with spring onions, this is a true classic chicken rice dish that never fails to satiate your appetite.


    Parking is chaotic here; don’t park as your wish as it’s a clamping zone.

    Things to expect

    One of the best chicken rice in town! If you're starving, it's wise to double your serving of chicken when ordering; it’s a battle to get a second plate as its super hectic!
