While hordes of hungry diners wait imprudently for their Diamond Chicken Rice and tolerated poor service at Restoran Chai Hong, we tucked into cheap, gratifying chicken rice topped with succulent, smooth chicken at this unassuming chicken rice stall within the Continental Hotel building.
This no name stall is manned by a friendly, patient and efficient old couple.
If anyone deserves business, it would be them.
Food is a class above even for hawker standards.
I’ve had really expensive chicken rice (think Mandarin Orchard Singapore – Chatterbox) and this beats a lot of famous, more expensive chicken rice hands down.
I had whined about how I wasn’t able to select the parts I prefer over at Diamond Chicken Rice but that wasn’t an issue here at Continental.
BELOW: RM7 for this portion and RM1.50 for a robust, cooling loh han guo drink.
Great value I’ll say!
The punchy and thick chili sauce is excellent. We ordered breast and thigh meat as I had wanted to test the texture of both.
It arrived dressed with a fragrant mix of ginger and oil and crowned with a flurry of fresh spring onions.
The chicken was admirably smoother and softer at Continental, while at Chan Hong’s (Diamond Chicken Rice), the meat possessed a firmer bite.
In the rice department this Continental Hotel stall ace again with its non-greasy yet flavorful, fragrant grains.
Besides the poached chicken you can opt for the braised or roasted version. If you can, make space for the marinated soy sauce eggs too!
So where else would YOU recommend for the best chicken rice in Seremban?
