Chicken Rice is unofficially voted the Singapore National Dish; the other dishes up for the poll were Chilli Crab, Char Kway Teow, Laksa among others.
There are many variations of Chicken Rice; Hainanese steamed white chicken, soy sauced chicken, roasted chicken, deep-fried chicken, the list goes on. At Fook Seng GoldenHill Chicken Rice, we are proud to be serving the Singaporeans’ most loved Hainanese-styled Singapore Chicken Rice to you!
The family eatery, Fook Seng GoldenHill Chicken Rice, is the creation of Master Chef Ronnie Chew since 1995.
As a young man, he had ventured into several businesses; an upholster as a teenager, a chef on a ship in his 20s, even zipping around as a cabbie for a short period of time in his 30s. With this rich life experience, also a lover of many cuisines, Chef Ronnie also had an ambition, to have a Chicken Rice business.
His decision is based on his promise to one special person, his father-in-law. In 1995, his then ailing father-in-law was craving for good chicken rice. He said, “It’s so difficult to find really good chicken rice these days. They all taste the same”. Though not trained in any topnotch culinary school, but as a filial son-in-law and having the confidence of a good cook, he promised his father-in-law that he would whip up simple yet delicious chicken rice just for him.
Sadly, his father-in-law passed on shortly. However, that unfulfilled promised became an encouragement for Chef Ronnie. Later that year in August, Chef Ronnie and his wife, Sally, decided to take business into their own hands to offer chicken rice to the people. Since then, it has always been a family business providing scrumptious chicken rice and other delectable dishes to customers; from the connoisseurs who travel as far as Hong Kong to our shop, to the common folks whom they meet everyday.
Today, we invite you to come partake our lip smacking chicken rice, the tasty side dishes, and not forgetting the exceptional condiments, such as our chilli sauce! Come enjoy the friendly service that it almost feels like home. And to us, it IS just like home.
As we always greet in the Chinese family, “Everyone, eat!”
Master Chef Ronnie & Sally
