Chicken rice is available in most coffee shops; especially Chinese and Malay ones, roadside stalls, and even chain restaurants. Most chicken rice vendors offer two options of either roasted or steamed chicken. Other variations may include a BBQ version or a honey-roasted one. The rice served with the chicken is a flavorful one which is cooked using chicken broth. This rice, sometimes also known as “oily rice” has a rich, oily texture.
In some restaurants, the cooks may add coconut milk to the rice, reminiscent to nasi lemak which is another local favourite. Go to a Chinese or Malay coffee shop today and order for yourself a scrumptious plate of nasi ayam.
