Five Star Chicken Rice

They have quite a number of branches, can google for the addresses of the other branch, i went to the one at river valley and 3 of us ordered half a chicken and 2 side dishes.. i find the food so so only... nothing fantastic

Half a chicken, i felt that it wasn't tender enough, the savory sasame and suy sauce they had over the chicken was nice and salty.. goes well with the cucumber.
Baby kailan.. not bad. but nothing special.
Deep fried tofu thai style. the tofu was soft and smooth, the thai style sauce is the same everywhere, nothing special.

This meal costs us around $30, the price was fine for a clean and comfortable dining environment, food was decent. maybe i need to try boon tong kee soon, so i can compare these 2.

i think the chicken from the east coast branch is very good, not so sure about the other dishes. but what people usually do is order chicken from five star, then order the other zi zhar items from neighbouring sin hoi sai.

i have one korean restaurant to introduce to you. It's found at Square 2, next to Poh Khim (3rd floor). This is a new place. Not the same as the existing Korean restaurant that was there since Square 2 opened. Check it out. The food is quite tasty :)
