Instead, it was a little too dry and seemed to have been overcooked for a tad too long. This relatively new establishment serves up fusion food where West meets modern Asian cuisine. It is actually a unique and cultivated hybrid of the Peking duck and the Aylesbury duck, which are poultry specially bred for their dense and porous skin. This means that the ducks used in the dishes here at Duckland will be even more succulent, tender and robust than your average duck. Each bite of the prawn just a burst of flavours from the buttermilk sauce; sweet,spicy and milky/buttery.
Tomi Sushi originated from Niigata prefecture in 1954, and has 14 branches in Japan. It does not boast a fancy interior but you can expect better quality of sushi and sashimi here. Tomi prides itself for using 100% Niigata Koshihikari Rice- the crown jewel of Japanese short-grain rice.
- Its flavours are uncomplicated, its prices are reasonable and most importantly, the quality of any chicken rice stall in Singapore is always consistently high.

- A national dish should be unanimously enjoyed by everyone, found everywhere, and most importantly be affordable.
As much as we love their roasted chicken rice, their rice tends to be a tad dry so instead, we recommend going for their Dry Macaroni with Roasted Chicken. Patrick Massang sang “Icon of Love”, a song that he specially composed for the occasion. This was accompanied by ballet dancers from the Singapore Dance Company.
Wee Nam Kee Novena
With threats to religious liberty around the world, we have decided to dedicate this novena for religious freedom. We will pray for our persecuted brothers and classic british food sisters in Christ. I’ll let the picture of this beautifully presented chicken speak for itself. The porcelain-white flesh, thickly sliced chunks, and a layer of flavourful gelatinous skin is enough to make anyone a convert. This made it easier for us to enjoy the juicy and succulent chicken.

The chicken rice on this list are all highly recommended, and I would gobble up a plate from any of them in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, we have to scrutinise them heavily to determine the best out of the lot. The rice at this iconic chicken rice stall in Yishun was particularly disappointing, but the chicken was one of the best we’ve tried. There’s a reason why this stall constantly draws in the crowd, and I don’t see any reason why it won’t continue to do so. Those who’re living in the North are lucky to be blessed with this value-for-money chicken rice eatery. At $3 per plate, this is one of the most affordable chicken rice on this list.
Novena is accessible by MRT, with buses serving the city, nearest neighbouring estates and is close proximity to the expressway. The area has no bus interchange, the nearest being in Toa Payoh.

It came on a separate plate and was sitting on a bed of tomatoes and cucumbers. The chicken was a little on the lean side, similar to the one from Five Star Kampung Chicken Rice. Although the chicken was slightly dry, it got loads of flavour from the aromatic and punchy soya sauce dressing. The sauce synced up very nicely with the chicken, giving it a slight kiss of nuttiness from the sesame oil. Central to this area is Novena Square, a mixed used development situated directly above the Novena MRT station. Novena Medical Centre is located at levels 8 to 11 of the Square 2 shopping centre.
The doneness was excellent and every bite seemed to be bursting with rich flavours. There are four outlets around Singapore, but the Novena outlet is closest to the original stall that was previously located opposite Novena Church. Serving size is generous here, and I also got a bowl of soup that didn’t taste like it was brewed with a sachet of MSG. It was pleasantly sweet and did well in giving the rice some moisture.

The church was founded in 1935, but the current church was established in 1950 and designed by Swan and Maclaren. During the late 1950s, the addition of porticoes catered to the increasing number of devotees who would come for the Saturday novenas. The church underwent 33 months of restoration and finally reopened once again on September 2017, revealing a striking, new Gothic design. Here’s a list of opposite words from our thesaurus that you can use instead. We pray, oh Lord, through your holy Saints, that we may be blessed with the freedom to worship and adore you at all times!
