Chicken rice is a very common food in our country. I am sure every one do have their very particular chicken rice stall including my best friend Ken. I found out that whenever his favourite stall is, its sure sardin pack, well hidden and of course expensive. Well, Restaurant Choon Yien or known as James Chicken Rice is no stranger to many foodie and despite I work nearby I did not know this place is famous for chicken rice till my friend curse me how could I not know. .

For most of famous place there are only 2 types of service you getting. One is super good or excellent near to first class service or another type is bad. This place certainly fell to errrr .. . Special case. This place is very well known for the boss being very ” lansi ” (snobbish) as he will scold his customer if :

1) they do not order properly

2) no patience you can leave

3) Please wait your turn

4) Please do not double order as I am still young and have good memory. You will make my process line Jam

the list goes on. Most customers will turn off or just walk away when the cook or server is like that but this place is very unique as despite people being scold including you are DATO, Tan Sri or who every is still same treatment yet keep coming as you can see branded cars park nearby.

Salted, spicy sour vegie soup is well balance with sourness of veggie that do not overpower the dry chili and asam skin cook along to tone it down. Nice~

I cannot deny that this stall here definately have one of the best char siew with lean meat being cut in between and can you see the balance of fat in between the meat is just as I love it. Caramelize edge with slightly burnt is something that I enjoy alot~ Recommended!

Chicken meat is pretty decent as what makes it good is the soy sauce base that the chicken had roast then soak along that make it good. Mix with its fragrant rice is just perfect not to miss their own chicken rice chili which is not too spicy and little sourish end is just the right combination.

Chicken rice is cheap in most kopitiam but not this stall. Total damage per head on that day is RM20 and being price at that way, it had shot up to first spot in my list for being the most expensive Chicken Rice stall.

You have to reach here early as stuff here sold out pretty fast. Best advise reach before 12.30pm and Char SIew is very limited per day. Most of them call in to reserve!

Remark: is it best advise not to visit here if you do not have the patience or got scolded by James. That is how he is~

Little did I know that now Steven’s corner had evolve to Steven’s Tea Garden, Mamak also changing to concept dining. SHIT!!! Everything is changing. What I heard from my friend before was Steven’s Corner at The Gardens there. As we were looking for food on yesterday nite and were about to head to Asia Cafe. Then found out that it is Steven’s corner. So decided to try it as all the time I dine it at OUG.
A very concept mamak that it have been compare to traditional mamak shop. Even in the wall they do display how the history of Steven’s corner grow. From a small hawker paddle to become what it have today. Interesting fact~
The more interesting fact was, the service was so bad till we cannot imagine. To ask them to clear the table it took them 15 minutes and I have to call them alot of times. As my patience running out, I was yelling at them to ask them clear which was 15 minutes later.
The more interesting thing was the pricing in the menu. Every figure in cents is in 88 cents. Lol. So chinese concept which is ‘Fatt ahhhhfatt ahhh…'(cantonese)

One of the drinks order were ‘Capricon a mango Lassi thing. It do taste just like what you buy from the supermarket Lassi just that it is a bit watery. RM 6.88 for this.

This is my order as it is called Mee Goreng Mamak. Never eat before as find the name unique and decided to order and to my surprise it was something like what I tapau from the malay stall for my breakfast before work. It taste dry, spicy and a bit warm. The one I get for breakfast is RM1.20 and this one cost me RM5.88. Welll, the taste was not at expected.
My friends ordered Nasi Goreng Kambing. The rice was fried till dry and so do the mutton. It was like a serving from the Sahara Desert. Both of my friends were complaining also and one of them did not finish. Selling cheap cheap at RM 7.88
 

To my experience for this, will never return back for dinning purpose or even drinks. Bad service! Bad response!
