What an interesting post title! Kangsar Road Tender Soft Poached Chicken Cheaper & Tastier Than Cintra Street??

Many of you would asking, sure or not? :P~

i guess you have to prove it yourself as i & Jason were really unsatisfied with the value of money and quality has been served at the Cintra street’s chicken & fish porridge. A bowl of porridge yet just have few pieces of thinly slice fish meat it cost us RM5. Same serving and price for the chicken as well.

They are using LOWEST GRADE grain of rice (or even is crush rice) to cook the porridge. Just simply make a comparison with theirs and your home-cook porridge, and you would know the different of low grade and high grade of grain for the porridge.

If you are around town and have the urge and craving for chicken rice at night, should give this kangsar road corner coffee shop house chicken rice a try.

Kangsar Road is a slip road to the Kimberly Street & Kuala Kangsar Road, which just opposite the chowraster market exit.

Poached Chicken

The chicken is simply succulent, smooth & tender. The skin is slightly smooth and springy. Dash of fragrant sesame oil has added in the flavourful Soy sauce mixture and it was simply salty, sharp and appetising to match with the chicken, porridge & chicken rice too. Do opt for the whole leg if you love the smooth and tender texture. But for those who are unlike the pinkies near to the bones, do choose the breast portion, it has no sign of rough and tough feeling at all. And i like the way they serve the poach chicken with lots of finely julienne spring onions.

i would give 4/5 for taste & texture.

I would not say they are using quality grain to cook the porridge, but this would be definitely tastier and smoother then the cintra street’s porridge. Porridge came with humble portion, and it has a mild chicken flavour (dont get me wrong, the chicken flavour is not from chicken stock/essence. the taste is genuine and came from the chicken itself) inside the porridge , and sesame oil, preserved vegetables (dong chai) , julienne ginger, spring onions & chinese cruller was served in the bowl.

Simple and nice, but the porridge can be watery pretty fast, so better finish it when its still warm.

i would give 3.8/5 for taste & texture.
