Chicken Rice is one of the Malaysian staple comfort food, everyone has his/her own favorite(s). To pick the best will likely stir up a passionate debate but let's agree to disagree, this hauntingly mouth-watering Malaysian delight is never easy to cook and has no definite recipe to it. For a plate of simple, straight-forward Chicken Rice; navigate your way to Restaurant Green Glow (頂好茶餐室) at Pekan Lama, Sungai Petani (Kedah). This is definitely one of the long-established ones around; with more than 38 years of experience (since 1979), this humble stall has garnered an appreciate following, most coming for their remarkably luscious Chicken (the stall is known as 喜相逢爱芬鸡饭). But a good Chicken Rice is not just about the Chicken, purists will argue that the flavored-Rice and the addictive Chili dip is part of the package.... and this stall has it all.
Many Thanks to Leong for hosting us that afternoon.

Regular's favorite is the Roast Chicken, silky-tender Chicken served with savory Soy sauce; together with the undisputed champion- the home-made green Chili with Ginger dip, with the aid of Lime, it adds a coating of extra flavors to the meat. Equally delicious is the blanched Chicken; the Chicken is cooked and taken from piping hot broth and plunged into ice bath. As a result of that, the subcutaneous fat forms a gelatinous layer. The beyond amazing-texture and sumptuously succulent au naturel meat ensures a satisfying bite. Side orders like Siew Yok, braised Chicken Feet, Egg and Tofu are also available for you to add on the variety and excitement to the meal.
