It was lunch time in sunny Kuching. Decided to try the curry chicken rice a local friend has been raving about. This shop is located next to the Police Station in Jalan Padungan. Sorry, dont know the shop's name. Anyway, they only serve one thing in this shop. That is chicken rice.
First thing that came was the rice. This rice has a nice gold color to it. It was very fragrant both the rice itself and the stock that was used to cook the rice in.
Next came the specialty. The curry. This is no ordinary chicken rice shop curry that is the typical "chinese" curry. This curry was very thick and fragrant. Almost like the type you get in Indian restaurants or mamak.
Then the main dish arrives! The portion you see above is for 2 people (the two plates are the same plate taken from different angle). There was the chicken, cha siew, some stewed pork, chicken gizzards and a braised egg. The chicken was nice and smooth althought it tasted like it might have been cooked for too long. The stewed pork was nice and flavourful, the gizzards were ok but the star of this meal was the cha siew. It was barbequed to perfection and the flavours were amazing. You can order the ends of the cha siew which will have some burnt spots on it!! Delicous!!
