I think I’ve found good Singapore Hainanese Chicken Rice in Jakarta!!! *excited*
Located in Plaza Senayan’s SOGO department store, Chatterbox Indonesia serves mostly Asian Cuisine (out of which many are Singapore dishes). Some of the Singaporean cuisine include “Newton Indian Mee Goreng”, “Singapore Prawn Laksa”, and “Hokkien Mee”. According to Chatterbox, no Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is added to their food. AWESOMMME.
I can’t vouch for the other food but I must say their “Hainanese Chicken Rice” (IDR 69K) is pretty legit stuff. The rice was fragrant and the chicken was tender and juicy. Not to mention, the portions were generous too. Even the chilli tasted like the one back home (although not too spicy). SO GOOD.
I ordered some “Braised Soy Eggs” (IDR 25K) to accompany my Hainanese Chicken Rice. The eggs came with a portion of bok choy in the middle. Always happy to have more greens. Although the soy eggs went well with the rice, I wished for them to be soaked in more gravy.
All in all, I was very happy with the Hainanese Chicken Rice. My chicken rice cravings were satisfied with that one meal. 🙂
Chatterbox has many outlets across Jakarta — Cilandak Town Square, Plaza Senayan, Setiabudi Building, Grand Indonesia, Plaza Indonesia, Lapiazza, Emporium Pluit Mall, Kebon Jeruk, and Central Park.
