When it comes to recommending a good Chicken Rice place with a nice environment in the heart of Orchard Road, one place comes to mind - Chatterbox.
This restaurant has been serving chicken rice for many years. Although prices have gone up by quite a bit in recent years, but the taste have still been quite good.
For those who have not been to Chatterbox for a long time, it has shifted up to the 5th floor, and is accessible either through the mall or from the new hotel lobby.
This is the world famous Chatterbox Chicken Rice (S$27). Other than Singaporeans, I noticed many Indonesians like to come here to enjoy the chicken rice. At this price, the portion of the chicken is rather big and juicy. Thumbs up for the fragrant rice.
Free iced water is served to all diners here.
Other than Chicken Rice, Chatterbox also does other Asian cuisines. One dish which I always like to order in local hotels is the Nasi Goreng Istimewa (S$24). The fried rice tasted spicy and had a good kick. Satays were well-marinated and tender. So were the prawns. However the keropoks were not crispy enough.
Also shared a platter of Satays (S$37.60 for 12 sticks). Mixture of beef and chicken satays. THe satays were large and very well marinated.
Another dish we had was the Nasi Lemak (S$24). The rice had a fragrant coconut taste to it.
