Hawker's Delight (Vancouver, Singapore/Malaysian, Pictures - Chicken Rice)

(This will have to conclude my survey of Chicken Rice for a while.)

Hawker's Delight at Main and King Edward is a real chowhound kind of place. Very inexpensive, quick and tasty. I have eaten here many times and I always come out very satisfied. Today, I ordered Chicken Rice ($4.25!)and some satays (6 for $3.00).

This is the most inexpensive Chicken Rice I have found yet. The Chicken and Sauce are well executed. It doesn't come with the traditional bowl of broth. The chicken itself was tender and gelatinous. It only comes with one sauce - a ginger/chili mixture that tastes bright, fresh and tart. A winner. The only in-authentic aspect to the combo was the soya - they did not use the sweet dark soy that you will get in a Singapore Hawker stall or at Chatterbox.

Prima Taste's Chicken Rice is better overall, but it costs almost three times as much. I give Hawker's Delight a thumbs up for this Chicken Rice. Try their Laksas, Mees, and other dishes too. Excellent value.
