去新加坡旅行十大必吃的一定有海南雞飯份,在烏節路地鐵站一出ION商場直行十分鐘,文華酒店的文華雞飯一定要一試就不往此行了。雞肉是超級的滑,雞皮晶瑩剔透,是完全無脂肪和肥膏,平時不會食雞皮的我,今次都要將d雞皮全部吞哂落肚!!!另外的三個醬料都超級好味,超乎香港天天海南雞飯的水準,個湯更特別,清清的,還加上豆腐,與一般坊間的充滿胡椒味的不同,飯後飲完格外舒服滿足。今天是閒日星期二,晚上七點係繁忙的晚飯時間,無諗過餐廳🍴基本上坐無虛席,大部分的客人都是當地新加坡人,看來這間餐廳都很受當地人歡迎。唯一美中不足的是餐廳燈光太過暗淡了...

一定要一試就不往此行了。雞肉是超級的滑,雞皮晶瑩剔透,是完全無脂肪和肥膏,平時不會食雞皮的我,今次都要將d雞皮全部吞哂落肚!!!另外的三個醬料都超級好味,超乎香港天天海南雞飯的水準,個湯更特別,清清的,還加上豆腐,與一般坊間的充滿胡椒味的不同,飯後飲完格外舒服滿足。

今天是閒日星期二,晚上七點係繁忙的晚飯時間,無諗過餐廳🍴基本上坐無虛席,大部分的客人都是當地新加坡人,看來這間餐廳都很受當地人歡迎。唯一美中不足的是餐廳燈光太過暗淡了...

剛剛到了很多旅遊書推介的 Chatterbox。點了海南雞飯和龍蝦喇沙。叫做係佢嘅 signature dishes。雞身鞋口,油飯乾爭爭,醬汁完全冇特別。喇沙極為普通,龍蝦係一般波士頓龍蝦,肉削。只係一餐普通嘅午飯,一個雞飯、一個喇沙同兩杯野飲,盛惠 S$100(約HK$600)。真心講句,我情願山長水遠、汗流浹背咁食大排檔雞飯,飲真正鮮榨嘅竹蔗水,都唔會再返嚟呢間酒店食。餐廳侍應服務態度欠佳。真正明白,咩叫做試過就算。

Must we eat Yusheng on Lunar New Year.  Why not do something different. 

I tried the Fried Hokkien Noodles (富见me) reads this as Mandarin and translates it as Propersity Sees Me in the New Year.

This dish is served with thick vermicelli fried with Abalone clam, squid, pork, egg and bean sprouts.

What surprise me what the dish was served in white banana leaf.  This adds to the fried aroma and keep the food warm.  I was busy capturing the food picture for 10 minutes and yet the food can still keep warm.

The chef used fried lard and this add the smoothen texture of the gravy.  The ingredients used was generous.  I was happy to enjoy the king size prawn, 2 slices of abalone clam.

The noodles is also served with Chatterbox home-made chilli.  It is not spicy hot.  My preference is not to add chilli and the noodles is already tasty.  

This service was fast and waitress was attentive to my needs. 

This dish costs $27.

Chicken rice is one of their signature dish in Chatterbox. Definitely not for the budget traveller as the chicken rice costs $27. However, it is a good dining experience to try out food in an air conditioned, cozy spacious ambience. The chicken is smooth & tender just to my liking. There are 3 different sauces (dark soy sauce, ginger, chili) available to dip the meat. I love the ginger sauce most (the samsui ginger chicken at soup restaurant is pretty good too).

Other than chicken rice, their lobster laska ($36) is my favourite too. The soup is very thick & flavourful. Lobster is fresh & tender meat. Their fresh brewed coffee ($9) tastes normal, I still preferred starbucks coffee


Overall, the food were good though a little bit salty for our taste buds. Needs to drink lotsa water after the meal
Price is a bit steep but probably because it is a 5 star hotel restaurant.

I was so thirsty the whole night after i had their soup and chicken rice. The rice was quite fragrant but a tad dry. The portion seemed to be too little for this steep price. I can only say with such standard in a 5 star hotel, the price here shouldn't be $27++ = $32 nett (Costs around 8 times more than the market price) With such price, it should taste special but they failed to impress me.

Overall conclusion: Service was poor. No warm greeting and smile from the staff, they seemed to be like no expression at all. I find it weird to see this at a 5 star hotel restaurant. Waiting time for the dessert was more than 15mins - unacceptable! The only thing I like was the cosy and spacious ambience. My advice is, Singapore has lots of places serve much better local food than here at a much lower price, this place definitely not worth your time and $$.

For this set of chicken rice, is really presentable and smells good!  Chicken meat is very tender and juicy, but the portion seen to be too little for this high price. THe chicken rice is very fragrant and not too oily, and the grain are dry and not soggy.  Chicken soup is super fragrant and clear, which is served really hot to our table.

Must have the minced garlic sauce which is flavourful and blend in well with the chicken meat.  for those love to eat spicy food, garlic chilli sauce is a must have as well.

We ordered Hainanese Chicken Rice, and when it came, to my disappointment, the rice (although hot), doesn’t have any of those chicken rice fragrance which is the basics. And the Chicken was cold and tough. The only thing that had flavour was the chilli and dark sauces.

$30? What a waste! We went dutch because I’m not going to let my friend off easy.

Chatterbox's reputation was built in its signature dish of Hainanese chicken rice. This dish needs no introductionand visitors invariably opt for this or the laksa with baby Boston lobster (subject for another review). Although I opted for breast meat, the chicken was cooked to perfection - juicy and tender. However, like those who have tasted the original version of Chatterbox's chicken rice, I felt that the standard has dipped somewhat. The rice is not as fragrant and toothsome as in the past,

Chatterbox's reputation was built in its signature dish of Hainanese chicken rice. This dish needs no introductionand visitors invariably opt for this or the laksa with baby Boston lobster (subject for another review). Although I opted for breast meat, the chicken was cooked to perfection - juicy and tender. However, like those who have tasted the original version of Chatterbox's chicken rice, I felt that the standard has dipped somewhat. The rice is not as fragrant and toothsome as in the past, while the chilli sauce no longer packs a punch - chilli fiends may even describe it as being too muted or having not enough 'kick'. Unless one is a Meritus Club member with dining privileges of 15%-50% off, the prices of the local hawker staples featured on Chatterbox's menu renders dining here an occasional indulgence. Better value and quality chicken rice can be found elsewhere ie at more modest surroundings and prices.

Service has dropped as years passed. Staff are not as attentive as before.

Ambience
Although level 5 now is spacious and renovated, I still reminisce the old place on one of the top floors in Mandarin Orchard. The ambience is better and with a panoramic view of Singapore.

Price
Expensive plate of chicken rice.

Recommendation / Tips
(1) At the price and service rendered, there are better players out there.

Delicious but expensive local fare - this is how I would describe the food from Chatterbox. Though I love the chicken rice from Chatterbox, I have to admit that it is not worth paying $25 for it. This is especially so when you can easily find chickem rice which taste as good, if not better than the one from Chatterbox. Perhaps you can have it once in a blue moon when you wanna pamper yourself... As for the service, I feel that it is not up to standard. I am kinda disappointed with the service as

The chicken is really tender and juicy and taste even better with their thick garlic chilli sauce dip on it. The chicken rice is equally fragrant and the grain are separated well and is filled with lots of the fragrant chicken taste in it. Normally I can straight to have two big bowls of rice with many pieces of chickens on it.

Though Chatterbox is famous for its chicken rice, the rest of the local delights taste as good. I would recommend one to try the Nasi Goreng (as shown in picture). Served with fried egg and juicy (yet not fatty) satay, the Nasi Goreng is a main course which I believe many people will love after trying it. In fact, I prefer the Nasi Goreng to the famous chicken rice. Located in Meritus Mandarin hotel, it is inevitable that the food is not as wallet friendly.

We made reservations before heading down since it was stated in the deal. I reached promptly at 5pm and was given a window seat since the place was quite empty. It was pretty nice to watch the world go from the 5th level of Mandarin Orchard, so when you call to make reservations, request for a table by the window. Yandao was late, so they served me my drink and left me alone. While idling my time away, I noticed that I was the only local! The people seated around me are all foreigners – Hong Kongers, Indonesians & Japanese! As much as I tried to eavesdrop on their conversations, I understood none of it. Boring. Anyway, when Yandao arrived, they brought the set out almost immediately! Howinitiative & attentive of the waiting staff. I like.

The deal includes Chatterbox Half Chicken, 2 bowls of rice, 1 seasonal vegetable, 2 drinks (soft drinks or beer), complimentary parking at Mandarin Orchard (for 2 hours only) for $36.52 excluding service charge & GST which sums up to about $42+. Pretty good deal since I heard that 1 plate of Chatterbox Chicken Rice is about $25. Furthermore, the car park charge for 2 hours is about $10.70.

Our Seasonal Vegetable was Dao Gay. Not too bad though I was hoping for 油菜 cos Dao Gay is so cheap. Dao Gay was soaked in sesame oil & was flavourful. There were mushrooms in them& I love mushrooms. They also removed the tails of the Dao Gay so thumbs up for effort they put in!

Both Yandao and I were super disappointed by the chicken because the meat was tough. I was expecting tender, juicy chicken with the price people pay at this place. Chatterbox Chicken has nothing to rave about and I’ve had better chicken at many other places – Soup Restaurant, Boon Tong Kee, 925 Yishun Central and even Far East Shopping Centre. The good thing about this chicken is that it’s thoroughly cooked with no tinge of pinkness in the meat. Yandao can be pretty anal about blood in the food. Even though the chilli sauce had no kick, I liked it because I didn’t leave Chatterbox with garlic breath. I’m super conscious when it comes to eating Chicken Rice chilli because most places use too much garlic. No amount of mints will remove that garlic breath. It’s very embarrassing to let your colleagues or friends know what you had for lunch with your breath. Ack.

The rice was a bit too dry and white for my liking. Chicken rice is meant to be oily and slightly buttery! And the best way to eat chicken rice is mix in black sauce with the yummilicious chicken sesame sauce. This is how chicken rice should always be eaten. Plain dry rice becomes awesome chicken rice after my concoction. You MUST do it too. Drench your rice with the 2 main ingredients and you will be as awesome as me. I mean, your chicken rice will be as awesome as mine.

Two wrongs do not make a right. Despite the good service, I will never return as a paying customer because of the price and standard.
