Goh Thew Chik Hainan Chicken Rice

Ah the good ol’ chicken rice… a staple of our Malaysian diet, unhealthy as it may seem (oily but oh so fragrant rice and all).

I’m sure each of us would have our very own favourite chicken rice stall. And one of my favourites would definitely have to be… Goh Thew Chik Hainan Chicken Rice along Chulia Street. This place needs no introduction…

Goh Thew Chik

ItΒ is very popular especially with the lunch crowd. And I do understand why…

Delicious morsels of rice oh so fragrant, wonderfully paired with slices of glide-down-your-throat smooth, flavorful roast chicken… and topped with some of that zesty chilli sauce…

One drumstick is usually not enough for me and we always end up ordering an extra plate of chicken! Glutton that I am! πŸ™‚

Where is your favourite chicken rice stall?


  1. This stall is famous for its roasted chicken only. If you want the boiled chicken (white chicken), you should go for Kafe Kheng Pin at Penang road.

  2. A few door on the right, there’s a restaurant called SKY HOTEL if not mistaken is famous for CHAR SIU RICE. That stall, you have to wait for 1 hour and it really taste good. Night time the same place, is selling a good fish head bee hoon.

  3. CK Lam – I’ve not tried the hutton lane chicken rice. will go try it soon! πŸ™‚

    durianberry – looks like we have the same tastes!

    kenny – i’ve tried some chic rice balls in melaka..dont think its the one by the river bridge though..next time i go melaka i ask you for directions ok? πŸ™‚

    nkotb – happy looking! and when you find it be sure to blog about it…

    email2me – oh i usually take roast chicken one…dont really like ‘pek cham kei’ but i will go visit the kheng pin kafe to have a look. and yes the sky hotel char siu rice is the best!! i love that place!!

  4. definitely one of the best nasi ayam in penang but be careful when walking in the kopitiam…it’s extremely oily…

  5. penangtuapui – these photos were from quite a while back. i usually ‘ta pau’ from the stall. πŸ™‚
