We decided to try out this chicken rice shop instead of the other 2 shops because it is most the most beautiful of all the 15th century houses now 90% turn into shops.
Siew Lin n Chris waiting for the chicken rice, it took about more than 20 minutes,while I decided to have a closer look of the preparation of chicken rice balls, those older days in a smaller shop the chicken rice are roll by hand while it is still warm..
NOW WITH MACHINE ROLLING AT STAGE ONE, FOLLOW BY HAND ROLL THE RICE BALL ARE COLD NO MORE TENDER WITH CHICKEN AROMA, THE TASTE JUST POOR, THE CHICKEN MST BE SERVE WHEN IT IS STILL WARM..
WE ORDER FREE HALF FREE RUN CHICKEN BUT THIS NOT THE REAL FREE RUN CHICKENS BUT JUST CHICKENS REAR IN ENCLOSURE INSTEAD OF CAGES..
TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS KIND OF CHICKEN RICE IN JONKER STREET, IY IS SUPPOSE TO BE WORLD FAMOUS, I PITY THE OVERSEAS AND LOCAL TOURISTS WHO COME FOR THE WORLD FAMOUS CHICKEN RICE...

Jonker street in Mandarin known as the Chicken Street, no wonder there are 3 chicken rice shops in Jonker Street.
The most beautiful chciken rice shop like the another 2 shops are the same with local n overseas tourists queing up outside the shops for seat..
However for the local my advise is do not try it, the taste was the poorest I ever come across beside the poor services provided..
In the late 1980s I never fail to eat the famous chicken rice with rice ball at a shop in jonker street without air condition etc whenever i visited my branch here..
NOW IN 2013 I DECIDED TO TRY AGAIN, AS THE FAMOUS GOURMET CHEF FROM HONG KONG EVEN GIVE HIS RECOMEMDATION FOR IT..
BUT IT IS A GREAT DISSAPOINTMENT..
