The Chicken Rice Shop @ Village Mall

The Chicken Rice Shop (TCRS) has been around in Malaysia since year 2000, but it is only recently that my hubby and I went for our first meal at TCRS Village Mall, Sungai Petani. Previously we thought of going for dinner after shopping at Tesco Penang but the waiter at TCRS rudely rejected our shopping trolley (have to leave it outside the shop unattended), so we walk away... >:(

Anyway, we decided to try chicken rice shop at village mall because we don't feel like eating western food that day. My hubby ordered Set A Grilled butter chicken while I ordered single healthy set.

My hubby saw the new grilled butter chicken he ordered set A

The grilled butter chicken...taste a bit weird, so so only

My roast chicken ....taste better than the grilled butter chicken

Braised tofu and braised egg that comes together with my healthy set

Another side dish....Ipoh bean sprouts, but they put ajinomoto on it!! what the!!

Pak Choy with oyster sauce that comes with my hubby's grilled butter chicken

Overall, the taste is so so fact, I would say below average. You can get better chicken rice elsewhere in Penang...especially my mum's place, muahaha :)

The grilled butter chicken is new to me. I normally go for steam chicken. Dont quite like the others. :)

In fact, I dont eat chicken outside, even at home still having kampong chicken.

I've always been very suspicious about these chains specializing in local food, even though my last and only visit to the Chicken Rice shop was not too bad. The butter chicken is a serious turn-off!!

hi new kid, the grilled butter chicken not nice one...i like my mother's deep fried marinated chicken without flour.

hi 550ml jar of faith, the local food chain always let us down in terms of their food quality...

grilled butter chicken like Nai Yao Kai? with curry leaves and all?

never try Chicken Rice Shop, as find them overpriced and over-rated. chicken rice Hainanese style is the best.

J2Kfm, you are right on the grill butter chicken description.

Me too, I prefer the traditional Hainanese chicken rice. The most important is the chili sauce and the fragrant rice, cus they bring out the yummylicious of the chicken rice.

Shell, although they increase the variety, however, taste wise, not much improvement.
