Town House Chicken Rice @ Alor Setar

Alor Setar, a place I rarely venture into, a place which does not appear in most food blog location list, and here I am, wandering here while waiting for the even at Holiday Villa to start, with an empty stomach and growling badly. Without knowing what to eat, or what to expect, I saw that this coffee shop have the most customers, and so I went it, follow the others.

It seems that the chicken rice here is famous, as there are people queuing it up for take away orders, so yea, I will just eat it.

And luckily for me, yea, it taste quite nice. The rice itself is very fragrant, which I like. After all, I am eating Chicken “Rice”, am I?

But yeah, although most of the time I ordered chicken rice, I actually focus more on the chicken, instead of the rice. Why so? Protein > Carbs. Fark carbs.

Although the chicken does not disappoints, it does not excels too. The meat is soft and tender, but well, not the best. Besides, without a good chili sauce to enhance it, it is just slightly above average. 6.8/10

One might ask, am I just simply enter a shop, snap it and post it? Well, not really as I initially doesn’t want to post it since the taste is just average, and I thought that it’s just a normal chicken rice shop.

It’s only until a friend of mine tell me that the chicken rice here is very famous in Alor Setar. So well, since it’s famous, it should suits many others taste right? It might not suit me, but it might suit you guys out there, so if 1 day you end up in my position on how I wander in to this chicken rice stall, you might as well try it!

  1. Hello, I enjoyed reading your blog.

    I was wondering if I could ask a favour? I’m currently doing my disseration for my Master’s Degree and I’m wanting to ask people’s opinions on the subject of air travel. Especially of interest are those residents of Malaysia.

    If you could just take a few minutes to help complete my survey, I’d be most grateful.
