Do you love Chicken Rice but often have to give this famous Singaporean Cuisine a miss due to health reasons? The Low Fat, Low Cholesterol Kampong Chicken served at Chicken House may offers you a sly reason to cheat a little.
Located along Upper Thomson Road, this restaurant promises its diners Kampong Chicken which consists of mainly fat free lean chicken meat. Why are Kampong Chicken meat low in fat and relatively leaner? That’s because they ‘workout’ alot by running around freely in the kampong unlike their farm cousins who are usually held captived & forced feed to fatten up.
The restaurant offers old school dining experience where you and your friends can just sit, eat, pay and get out. Not a comfortable place for hanging out over coffee.
Once orders are taken, delivery of the dishes and plates of chicken rice are swift & precise. The fried bean sprouts served were so crunchy and addictive that the plate was swept clean even before the chicken arrive.
This plate of innocent looking golden brown fried dou fu hides a secret deep in its core.
There are additional fillings within the Tou Fu! Looks like egg and something else. Drop a comment if you know the rest of the fillings.
Finally, the main hero of our meal – Our athletic chicken. The chicken skin is yellowish in color which does not really look appetiting to me. The chicken parts are slightly smaller compared to the chickens served at other places. The meat is lean and tough with minimal fats. The accompanying rice has significantly less oil but also weaker flavor compared to other chicken rice vendors.
Yes, this is a healthier choice but I still like my chicken voluptuous, tender and with hints of fats.
The Kampong Chicken served at Chicken House will generally be well received by ladies and health conscious individuals. But for chicken rice lovers who desires the full taste and flavor of this local culinary delight, this restaurant may not be up to mark. Here are the full details of the restaurant:
