Chatterbox (Mandarin Hotel) | ThumbsForFood

We have always wanted to try the famous chicken rice at Mandarin Hotel after hearing it from people that a set of chicken rice costs $25 there. I mean, there must be something special about the chicken rice for people to be paying almost 5 times the market price for it.

So, here we are! Do not expect too much of the ambience as it feels like a ordinary restaurant without much decorations and ambience. We actually thought it looked more like a typical food court.

Bean Sprouts with crispy silver fish $8.00++ This dish was very ordinary but the price was reasonable. It is a typical dish to go with the meaty chicken rice.

Mandarin Chicken rice $23.80++ This is it! To be honest, I really did not feel that there was anything different about this set of chicken rice. Perhaps it is because of the high standards of chicken rice found in hawker centres that this set of $23.80++ paled in comparison. No doubt, it is one of the better chicken rice in Singapore. The chicken meat is neatly prepared (no bones) and for big eaters, the portion of the chicken is really satisfying. However, I would not recommend this as it is too overpriced.
