Chatterbox has been around Singapore for 5 decades serving their world-famous chicken rice and more. There are tons of chicken rice shops in Singapore at a way lower price but if you ask me, this is the place for the best chicken rice in Singapore.

Their chickens are moist, tender, and have just the right amount of gelatines. The rice here is fluffy, aromatic, and has just the right amount of grease. There are also three sauces given; dark soy sauce, ginger, and chili. Chili here has the right consistency and spice to it while the ginger has a nice gingery kick to it.

Chatterbox has three different sizes for their chicken rice; Individual ($25), Half Chicken ($38), and Full Chicken ($72). The image above is their Full Chicken, good for sharing for 4 to 5 pax.

Boon Tong Kee is one of Singapore’s most established chicken rice shops and it serves a variety of Chinese food. From the fragrance of their rice to the moist chicken and they are well-balanced garlic chili, there is no surprise here that it tastes good.

We order a small portion of Hainanese chicken ($6) along with two bowls of chicken rice ($0.80 each). The rice was smooth and has a nice fragrance to it.
