是的！經過了好幾次的撲空，吃到了莫凡彼，也吃到了Ikea... 只差還沒吃到Hooters... （還有幾次根本都懶得紀錄了）這次終於被我們吃到了！
不過這次我們可是有備而來的！為了確保食記的正確性，我還特地查了食記刊登的日期！（是最近的沒錯！）因此就抱著給他最後一次機會的希望，來到這裡！心裡想：要是今天在撲空，那老娘我以後就都不來了啦！的心態... 到了慶城街，轉角灣過去... 有！開！
After a number of visits in vain, we finally made it!
So let me explain why it had taken us this long to finally make it to the shop (while it's open!). The place was under refurbishment during our first visit. So we went to Movenpick instead. We checked on Google that time, and somehow the data showed that they were closed on Tuesdays. So afterwards, we would come during the weekends... and it was closed EVERY SINGLE TIME!! So I started to realise that there might have been a glitch somewhere. Finally, I started checking recent food blogs posted by random users. Eventually, I found out that there was, indeed, a glitch! The place is closed on all holidays and weekends (not Tuesdays!). No wonder all our previous visits were in vain!
This time, we came prepared. I made sure the blog post I saw was a recent, up-to-date article, before we made our next move. Then, when we arrived, and was about to turn around the corner.... THANK GOODNESS it was open!!
I cannot tell you how glad I was to finally see the place open and thriving with people!!
The queue had already started forming upon our arrival, but since the shop does not offer much variety, you know that they are capable of being very efficient.
After you make your order, you are to go to this window by the side and wait for your meal. Meanwhile, you can help yourself to the sauces. The spring onions are chopped by hand, and is a signature sauce of the place - worth trying. I skipped it only because I've never been a fan of spring onions.
以上是2號餐 - 配菜比較多。
No. 2 meal comes with more veggies on the side.
No. 1 meal, with an additional half-portion leg.
海南雞飯如果好吃的話，其實根本不用沾醬。但因為沒吃過，所以還是挖了一點到小碟子裡。沒有直接淋上去是因為1. 天仙不愛蔥（不能夠再更強調！）2. 我更愛原味（除非他本身沒味道，那就表示很失敗啦）
The deal with this chicken rice, is that if it's done right, there is absolutely no need for these sauces. But since it was our first visit, we were willing to give things a try. I didn't pour the sauce over the chicken for two reasons. 1. I don't like spring onions (can't emphasize enough!) 2. I love the original taste even more!
When I saw the plates of chicken, I almost cried (mind you, knocked up women are more sentimental!)
After trying a bite! I told the hubby: this tastes just like the chicken place in Chiang Mai!! (speakign of which, the article has yet to be published, please wait patiently)
A bite of the chicken, and a mouthful of the rice - it was well worth the wait!
The rice was terrific! No need for sauce at all!
The soup is free of charge (all you can drink).
I had expected the place to be a major let down, after attempting to come so many times. It was good to know that it lived up to its fame!
The hubby said that he had forgotten what the Chiang Mai chicken tasted like, but I would never forget. After all, I had eaten there so many times during the 10 years I was there! It was a flavor difficult to forget. It's comforting to know that this place can serve as an alternative.
Look at how clean our plates were after the meal!
Remember to clean up after yourselves once you're done. It's one way the shop ensures that all its employees are efficiently working on our scrumptious chicken meals!
