Some people like the chicken rice in Chinatown, or Nguyen Tri Phuong street or even in Hai Ba Trung ... so I really have no idea which is the best now in town! I also tried a famous chicken rice in Singapore at a luxury hotel (recommended by my old colleagues in Singapore) or even at some food court with local friend - the popular Hainanese boneless tender chicken rice! So to me - the best and the most important from this dish are always good rice with good chicken (what's else?!)... and probably with the excellent dip sauce!
For certain reason, most of chicken for this dish should be either "garden"chicken, definitely not chicken from those "industrial" farms, because the chicken meat should be specially tender . Either it's cooked or fried - the meat should be flavorful, tender and not powdery soft! The rice is soft not too dry and tasty thanks to the chicken broth. Here, you have a choice : either cooked chicken or roasted with fish sauce. I vote for the latter! More tasty!
Besides you still can order a chicken salad, it's good to have some veggies, quite tasty as it soaked in sour sweet spicy sauce! Good to try here, because if we go to the traditional chicken rice place - they don't serve this salad!
Ok, where to try this chicken rice with fried fish-sauce chicken ? At the same place where I had a noodles with jellyfish! 61 Le Thi Hong Gam, district 1!
