I am pretty sure that most of you have known this brand, The Chicken Rice Shop by now. A brand that is no stranger to most of us whenever it comes to a chicken rice chain shop. They are located in nearly every mall in the country. To mark their milestone in achieving 100 outlets, The Chicken Rice Shop will be running their Jom Sama-Sama Makan 100 Outlets Celebration to reward their customers that have been with them all these years.
It’s a good thing that I decided to come early that day to avoid the busy crowd because it’s usually packed all day long!
On 1st July 2019, the first 100 tables will receive a FREE TCRS Single Combo Meal Voucher, TCRS Cooler Bag and TCRS Special 100 Outlets T-Shirt. This free giveaway starts from 12.30pm while stocks last.
Followed by their RM10 For 2 Single Combo Meal Set from 2 – 5 July 2019, starting from 12.30pm-1.30pm with a minimum dine-in of 2 pax. That’s right! You and your friend can enjoy 2 Single Combo Meal Sets as the picture above for only RM10!
The Chicken Rice shop is indeed no stranger to me as I have been dining in at their restaurant since my college days, which is about 15 years ago. Also, whenever my Malay friends ask for chicken rice recommendations, this is one of the shops that I always recommend. The consistency of their product has always been there which always impresses me.
Over the years, their menu has expanded and they now serve a variety of chicken aside from their Roasted or Steamed Chicken.
This is also their latest outlook for their outlet.

If you come with a big group or team, their Family Fiesta Set for 5-6 pax @ RM 119.55 is indeed more than enough. I feel that it is possible to feed 7-8 pax instead. It comes with a huge range of dishes that packs your table like you are having a buffet spread.
I am not a fan of ladies’ fingers but I do like how they made their Spicy Savoury Ladies’ Fingers. It is nicely cooked and topped with their chili and soy sauce which is just perfect. The Kerabu Mango also has its own unique taste as the mango slices are thin and sour enough. Among these 2, I enjoy the Spicy Savoury Ladies’ Fingers more.
Hong Kong Kai Lan with Oyster Sauce
Their Roast Chicken is soft and juicy. What’s important to me is the soy sauce base. Steamed Chicken is done well too.
Tofu with Oyster Sauce
Famous Stuffed Fish Ball is pretty good too. Soft and slightly bouncy, it comes with juicy minced chicken filling too.
One of my favourites is their Nyonya Pai Tee with its crispy cup crust and filling! Remember to drench it with their chili sauce. The quality has very much maintained since many years back.
The taste of the Nyonya Assam Fish is like Asam Pedas which is sour and mild spicy end. If you love BBQ Chicken, this is indeed a good one as the bbq sauce is good.
Prime Honey BBQ Chicken
One of my fav Nyonya Assam Fish, eat it while it is hot.
Hainanese Curry chicken
Penang Famous Chicken Rolls is a good starter to hit off before the set comes in.
Rojak Buah to finish at the end?
Clockwise from top: Penang Rojak, Penang Famous Chicken Rolls and Spicy Penang Chai Boay (Spicy Mixed Vegetables)

Family fiesta meal for 5-6 pax
One of the main item that you shall not miss on your table is their sauce. Chili and ginger sauce is a must have to eat along with the chicken. Dark soy sauce will be depending on your own taste preference.
Lets dig In.
Lastly, Penang Cendol as a closure?
The Chicken Rice Shop is indeed one of my favourite HALAL Chicken Rice shop in the mall. Did my last Buka Puasa with my team in this place too.
