    VVV GOOD chicken rice

    Nearby Subang Sq, Foh Foh Restoran at ss15/4B, has a chicken rice stall. The owner operator, Dave, is a great guy (bias opinion as he is a friend too)

    You guys should go try his drumsticks done the way ala charsiew type...i donnno what its called but its REALLY VVVV good. Sweet & succulent. Cooked just nice with enough moisture retained in the drumstick to give you the real thing!

    I ddint try the charsiew or the roasted chicken though...BTW, the chicken rice is fragrant and has that real hainanese chicken taste/aroma to it...But this Dave is a Hokkien!

    p/s BTW, Dave also constantly donates (i am trying to get him to do so 3X/week!) the chicken spareparts, left over bits etc for me...what i do with these donated parts is a secret lah :-)

    dont think so lah...she is i think also hokkien leh.
    Dave learnt the art of hainanese chicken rice from another famous hainanese chick rice seller.I also found out that he took an apprenticeship and worked under his chicky-hainam-sifu for just over a year.

    U know me..i will call a spade a spade and also never painte3d flowers around my words either...>So I repeat, Dave's special chicken drumstick, I mean WHOLE drumstick is really superlicious good!

    since reading the #1 post, can't wait to try this out. so.. today, braved the incredible jam peppered with mpsj vultures and made my way there.

    I must say this is a unique way of preparing chicken rice, since the drumstick is bathed in char-siew sauce. it looked absolutely delightful hanging from the stall window all lined up in a row. since I could not park for long, I had to pack it back. Dave was really a good guy, as he warned me about the vultures while he was packing the rice.

    Taste-wise, the meal was above average*. Price-wise, it can be considered cheap, since I ordered drumstick+thigh, with siew-yoke, and it only came up to RM8.00.

    Slightly disappointed that the skin of the chicken was smooth; would have prefered it to be roasted crispy and doused with the sauce

    *for chicken rice that turns u into an addict, try Hup Kee at Sunway Mentari. Imagine having to go thru the jams to get there and back, and still say the trip was worth it!
    [Note: the same meal here would have cost at least RM12.00]

    Sounds like our squirrel friend is trying to get people to try his friend's ware.... which is not a bad thing.

    Will look into the place maybe on a weekend since it is in SS15, the jammest place to be on a weekday.

    What's keeping me away from SS15 is the traffic congestion, more so the limited parking space. But since this stall comes highly recommended, I may well pay it a visit in the near future but please don't hold your breath. It may take me awhile yet.

    I wanna promote David for his simple & generous 3 Xweekly contribution of chicken bones, liver, and even stewed meat...The 8-10 recipients are always grateful

    NOW back to HL Chicken rice at Foh Foh restoran....Dave freshly fry, roast the chicken & siew yok himself. He starts early at home and finish the cooking at the central kitchen back of FohFoh's...

    Seriously, go try Dave's Chicken or Siew Yok rice...the more you guys patronise his stall, the more those mysterious 8-10' recipeints will be grateful...*woofwoof*wag tails!

    A short review please when you've paid the stall a visit. The traffic jam and limited parking bays in that area are deterring me but if the food is really good (positive feedback from many), then hell, bad traffic and limited parking spaces won't be able to stop me!

    food reviews by critics are usually bias. Each has a different taste bud. Haute cuisine are like a beautifully painted picture or even a jaw-gaping fresco painting. Its not surreal, nor cubism or abstract...its almost fine art,carefully crafted that you arent sure to eat it or to just sit, stare and admire.

    So, if its deliciously aromatic chicken rice you are looking for, go to David's. As for the chicken? well, lets just say its best to let you judge for ye self...ditto the siew yok and char siew.

    Good food, like love, conquers even the mother of all traffic jam...and also the father of no-parking around ss15/4.

    Then again, I do this simply bcos he is also a friend...and I needed my occasional chicken fix...yup, that too!

    for I just went today, since I happened to be in the area. The boss recommended char siew sauce chicken so I tried it. The meat is tender and cooked just right but the sauce it's coated in was a bit too sweet for me. However it goes well with the chillie sauce. The siew yoke is very nice though, crunchy and not too fat. Price is reasonable for the amount for portion of chicken and siew yoke given.

    Unsure if its been unfortunate for me, but I'm frequently experiences "overly sweet" sauce prepared by various vendors, won't know until its eaten or perhaps local tastebuds are preferring more sweeter sauces. Even some Satay gravy is overly sweet...not good! Thats why I avoid one Satay place here, because its deliberately over sweetened for my liking and my own health sake. I once told the boss about it and he said they won't change it because it will draw in complaints. Ok, I'm not agreeable, so you lost one customer in me.

    i also agree somewhat. I do find the char-siew style chicken a wee bit sweet...but David also countered many customers like it that way.

    So again its different taste for diff palate.

    And dave's accompanying chili sauce is 'outstanding' according to my chillie expert friend.
