Margaret Drive Chicken Rice
is supposed to be famous and serves good chicken rice. However this is a huge disappointment and one of the worst ever chicken rice.
Hainanese Chicken Rice
Margaret Drive Chicken Rice is supposed to be famous and serves tasty Hainanese Chicken Rice. However it is a huge misconception. This stall sells only the white type of hainanese chicken. I’ve ordered the chicken drumstick, which isn’t properly deboned. I had expected something juicy and smooth, as chicken drumstick itself is juicy with smooth and tender flesh. This chicken meat can be considered juicy and smooth and tender, but barely. Fail.
Now for the rice. Usually a chicken rice is cooked with chicken oil giving it a nice fragrance and flavours. This is not fragrant at all and not much flavours. In fact, it could be said that this rice is bland. The rice is not cooked properly either, it is too soft. Yet another failure.
After tasting this chicken rice, I find it hard to believe that they have been in business since 1978. With such mediocre chicken rice, it is quite amazing that they are still in business now. Honestly, you can get much better tasting chicken rice using Hainanese chicken rice seasoning packs from supermarkets (or from Amazon.sg).
