Segambut Fried Chicken Rice

I’ve mentioned this several times before – that fried chicken is my ultimate comfort food. What’s not to like about freshly fried, well-seasoned chicken pieces (even better if it’s dark meat) that is juicy and tender at the centre and crispy on the outside? And that was exactly what I looked for when I tried Segambut Fried Chicken Rice recently.

Fried chicken rice for two at Segambut Fried Chicken Rice

This fried chicken rice stall comes ‘highly recommended’ by some people, claiming it reigns supreme over my favourite fried chicken stall in Subang Jaya. The Segambut Fried Chicken Rice is merely a stall underneath a large tree, and they offer only fried chicken with rice. Nothing else.

Depending on your appetite, you can either opt for a whole fried chicken leg with rice (RM11) or a piece of fried chicken with rice (RM7). Soup and any additional chilli sauce is self-service, and the cutlery is available from the tray placed on several tables.

Fuss-free dining

This stall packs up quite quickly during lunch on a weekday – mostly with people who are working nearby. I reckon it’s also quite reasonably priced, hence the crowd. During peak hours, expect to share a table with strangers.

To be frank, I think this fried chicken is average at best.

The skin lacks crisp and the chicken is pre-cooked so it’s served warm

There’s no x-factor at all. The skin is crisp only at certain parts and the seasoning isn’t as flavourful or aromatic compared to the better ones I’ve eaten. And to make things worse, the chicken is pre-cooked so it’s warm, not piping hot.

Chilli dipping sauce is good, I have to say

So I didn’t get the juicy, tender fried chicken with incredibly moreish skin that I was seeking at Segambut Fried Chicken Rice. The rice is nothing to shout about though the chilli dipping sauce packs a wallop. I feel the latter is the best thing from this stall.

Overall, a disappointing fried chicken experience.

Overall, it was a disappointing meal. I think the fried chicken is only as good as the ones available from the pasar malam near my place. Of course, if you’re working in the vicinity and want an affordable lunch, you can try this.

But if you’re expecting some “god-level” fried chicken, then my friend, spare yourself this disappointment and just stick with the one I recommended from Subang Jaya.
