A friend of mine from the Philippines once mentioned that Singapore is famous for its chicken rice ball but I had absolutely no idea. That was about two years ago when I was not so crazy about good food and have not started this blog yet. Today I finally made my way to Jalan Besar to try Good Year Local Hainanese Chicken Rice Ball.
Located in a coffee shop behind Lavender Food Square, Good Year serves delicious chicken rice that is specially hand moulded into appetizing rice balls. A set meal for one person, which comes with two rice balls and a plate of chicken, costs only $3.50. Compared to the usual chicken rice that is more robust, the unique rice ball is soft and mushy, retaining the authentic flavour of chicken stock and the desired fragrance of pandan leaves. The steamed white chicken is fresh and tasty and served in a generous portion for its price.
Good Year Local Hainanese Chicken Rice Ball (and its branch in Toa Payoh) is the one and only chicken rice ball in Singapore. If you have not tasted chicken rice balls before, come down and try it for yourself.
