Located within a coffee shop next to CHIJ Primary Toa Payoh, YumzYumz tried out this chicken rice stall at Maxim Star Coffee Shop and here is our food review of it.
Plating was standard and somewhat inviting, with an obvious overdosed sauce on the proteins. Sauce was a mixture of chicken rice based soy sauce sesame oil concoction, and char siew sweet gravy. The result was somewhat confusing and seemed like a haphazardly done botched dish.
Nevertheless, chicken was tender, quantity was given generously, easily 50% more than what we usually get from other stalls (no, we don’t know them ^^). Char siew was limp, sweet, drenched in the abomination of sauce and slightly tough.
Thankfully the rice was nicely done, not mushy and separated grains, tasty and wen really well with the thick spicy zesty chili sauce.
For a $4 plate of tasty rice with generous portion of roasted chicken and char siew, it is one meal that totally fills the tummy, with a slight compromise to quality.
