Rasa Sayang House (now defunct)

Rasa Sayang House Chicken RiceRasa Sayang House is a really good halal food place in my neighbourhood. They’re a real hit with the nearby Bendemeer Secondary School students, machiks, enciks…well everyone essentially. Their speciality is the Hainanese Chicken Rice ($3) [***.] pictured here. Some other hot favourites include the Lemon Chicken Rice ($3) [***.] and Curry Chicken Noodles. In the mornings they serve up warm plates of Nasi Lemak, and local favourites such as Laksa and Mee Siam are available throughout the day. Tucked away in a block near the canal at Boon Keng, Rasa Sayang House is a 3-5 min walk from Boon Keng MRT.

Rasa Sayang House Chicken FeetOne thing I like about this place is the way it’s set up – comfy cushioned wooden stools, warm lighting, tiled floors, English radio station playing in the background. It’s a pretty cosy vibe for chicken rice I’d think. Definitely not something one will expect for a small place like theirs. Getting back to their food…lets not forget the standard dishes that accompany a respectable dish of chicken rice – Chicken Feet ($3) [****] as seen on the right. Don’t cringe just yet, this one’s not too jelly-like, very tender, and well-seasoned with sesame oil, chilli, soya sauce and garnished with chinese parsley. So give it a shot if you’ve not tried chicken feet before.

Rasa Sayang House Fried TofuAnother accompanying dish you should consider is their Fried Tofu ($3) [****]. Served piping hot, topped with fresh lettuce and ground peanuts, drizzled with chilli sauce…these 6 cubes of tofu are crispy yet soft on the inside. Mmmmmm…

I’m looking forward to introducing more halal food places for my muslim readers out there, so stay tuned for more as D and I taste more halal food!
