Chee Meng Chicken Rice has a fairly long history, dating back to 1965 when it first started out as a humble chicken rice and porridge stall at Old Klang Valley. It's most popular chicken rice shop is now located along the famous Bukit Bintang street in Kuala Lumpur. Chee Meng specialises in Hainanese-style chicken rice but I would leave it to the experts to decide if it is truly authentic, or not. Me, I'm just here to enjoy the food :)
What do you look for in your Chicken Rice? Some people say the rice is the deal-breaker, while others point to the chicken or even the chilli that's served with it. If you like your rice a tad drier and less oily, this one from Chee Meng would do well for you.
The Roast Chicken was disappointing because it was a bit too tough and dry for our liking. If only they had some steamed chicken available on the day we were there.
The Sambal Kangkong was not too bad, but would have been better if it was a lot spicier. We like to "torture" ourselves this way you know, go hissing with all the spiciness, keep going for more, and then come out of it commending the sensuous experience. It's an Asian way of life.
About RM16 per person, including drinks. Not cheap by Malaysian standards.
