Chicken Rice

Wen Chang Hainan Chicken Rice | Penang Food

Whenever I thought of Hainan Chicken Rice (HCR), I’ll think of my aunt who stays at Johor. She’s married to a Hainanese. She cooked tasty HCR.

Wen Chang HCR served traditional Hainanese CR. There are some newspaper posts sticked on the wall inside the shop. It tells the story of the background of this shop and the owner.
This had also been blogged by CK Lam few days ago. He also blog about other food along Cintra Street like Yau Chai Kuai, dumpling, Cantonese biscuits, dim sum, curry chee cheong fun and a lot more. Yummy.

This shop serves white chicken, roast chicken, loh bak and also eggs. We ordered roast chicken and 2 loh bak.
For my liking, the roasted chicken taste average. Nothing special.
The loh bak is nice. :-) Hehe… dunno how to describe. Anyone can help?
The chicken rice is come with a bowl of dried vegetable soup.
Yeah! And the rice. I like the rice of HCR. It’s slighty oily and also very fragant. Is the rice cooked with butter?
I also like the chilli. It’s mixed with some grinded ginger. According to the newspaper post on the wall, they are using the traditional grinder to grind the ginger.

I think this is one kind of traditional grinder.

Overall the meal is satisfying.

Loh Hup Kee Famous Chicken Leg @ New Lane | Penang Food

Loh Hup Kee Famous Chicken Leg – This is what written on the stall.
This chicken leg ?? … hmm… I think chicken feet is more appropiate. Ok, this chicken feet stall was previously located at ‘yi tiao lor’ aka 2nd road where the area is named Chun Man Yuan. Due to the area will be developed, the hawkers there have no choice but to find a new place for business.

Normally the chicken feet (CF) is fried then only is cooked. As for this CF, it’s not fried at first. The CF is smooth and soft. The gravvy is very tasty.Next is steam chicken. This one is similar to Ipoh ‘Lou Wong’ Bean Sprout Chicken. The chicken is steam with a very good timing where the meat texture is very smooth. It’s served with soy sauce. Very simple dish yet delicious.

As usual, we will order the CF, chicken and also fried mee + bihun. This is the ‘set’ that we always order when we visit this shop. The fried bee + bihun taste normal.


Total cost for this set is RM19.00. I am not sure the price for each individual dish as we always order this set. hehe

p/s: The chicken is served with this sauce. But the taste is so so nia. Normally I didn’t take it.
