If you have visited Serangoon Gardens before at night, you would not have missed the brightly-lit signboard of Pow Sing Restaurant with its crimson-red chicken mascot. What is more well-known about Pow Sing is its famous chicken rice that is supposedly very expensive.
I ordered a chicken rice set meal which comes with a plate of steamed white chicken, a bowl of rice and a plate of pickles. Thoroughly coated with savory chicken broth, the delicious rice is extremely fragrant and flavorful. Delightfully thick and spicy, the special chilli sauce complements the rice very well. The steamed white chicken is fresh, tender and tasty.
The sumptuous dinner costs around $9 in total, inclusive of lime juice and service charge. The prices are definitely comparable to other famous chicken rice restaurants eg Five Star and Boon Tong Kee. For the quality of the food and the comfort of dining under air conditioning, I am certainly willing to pay that price.
