I'm not exactly a fervent fan of Hainanese Chicken Rice, but from time to time, I do appreciate a quality authentic serving of chicken rice, its tender chicken, and yes, the garlic chilli sauce. I do tend to stick to one or two chicken rice stalls which are just "different" from others. The rest just taste the same to me everywhere.
Upon recommendation by juzmarc about a chicken rice stall in Eunos which he has been patronising for more than 10 years, I ventured into the old idyllic neighbourhood next to Eunos MRT station. With the blocks of flats painted in bright orange and white, it reminded me of my old house in a neighbourhood nearby in Aljunied. I found Eng Kee Hainanese Chicken Rice in Hong Lee Eating House, a coffeeshop next to the hawker centre and wet market.
Whenever I eat chicken rice, I do like to add a helping of chicken liver. I think the only reason why I bothered to visit this stall was because juzmarc highlighted about the liver. So, I'm 'sold'. The taste of powdery yet firm liver is utterly shiok with a dash of the lime-infused and garlic chilli sauce.
I so loved the chilli sauce I poured it all over the whole plate of chicken rice. It was one of the most satisfying meal I had from a hawker stall in recent times.
If you're nearby, I do recommend you to try this stall, and also the Lor Mee from the market, as well as Sin Thor Bak Kut Teh in the coffeeshop behind Eunos MRT Station.
