I went to the Chicken Rice shop recently with a friend. My friend ordered the chicken rice set which was the restaurant most popular item in the menu. I had tried their chicken set meal previously, it was just ordinary in taste; nothing special. I wanted to try something different, so I picked the Rojak and Gado Gado set meal. This set meal is only available during the week days and it includes a cold drink – the cost of the set meal was RM8.90 ( excluding taxes and service charge). This meal was named ‘ Ladies Good Lunch set ‘ in their menu but don’t worry – you still can order it for lunch if you are a guy.
If you are sick of eating meat for lunch, then the Gado Gado and Rojak meal would be perfect for a light lunch meal. It is mainly vegetarian except for the hard boiled eggs in the Gado Gado. The serving portion given for this set meal was small; but it was definitely sufficient for me. The Gado Gado tasted good and the peanut sauce was not too sweet and generously spread around the bean sprouts, long beans, tofu and eggs. I liked the bean sprouts as it was fresh and not overcooked.
The Rojak tasted sweet because of the sweetness in the fermented prawn sauce. The Singapore version of Chinese Rojak is normally sweet and spicy; but the Rojak served here was sweet and non spicy. The Rojak consists of mainly cucumber, pineapple mango and vegetables. For those who liked it spicy, I guess you have to add some cut chillies or chillies sauce onto the food. My friend loved the Rojak and she ate half the portion of it. Overall, I did enjoyed this vegetarian meal at The Chicken Rice Shop. And not forgetting to mention – the complimentary cold drink was a regular size Pepsi.
