With a multitude of chicken rice stalls in Singapore, you might have difficulty finding just one place with authentic and mouth-watering chicken rice. Yet, one established and reliable chain to try is Five Star Hainanese Chicken Rice, with outlets in East Coast and River Valley and Upper Bukit Timah.
