Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle
Blk 335, Smith Street #02-126,
Chinatown Food Complex, Singapore 050335
Located at the second storey of Chinatown Food Complex, Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle serves a dish close to every Singaporean’s heart. The store’s signature dish is the Soya Sauce Chicken Rice, which is an alternative to Hainanese Chicken Rice. The base of steamed rice was lightly topped with a spoonful of soya sauce, salty enough to sustain your appetite without being too oily; it added just the right amount of character to the authenticity of the dish. The stall serves Soya Sauce Chicken Noodle and Soya Sauce Chicken Hor Fun too.
