The Chicken Rice Shop, Tesco Mutiara, PJ

Initially, I wanted to drop by in Atria, Parklin vegetarian stall but somehow I would not find a place to park and then remembered that I have to buy some groceries, so I ended up in Tesco Mutiara instead. I couldn’t make up my mind of what I should have for lunch when I reached there. Anyway, I ended up having my meal in The Chicken Rice Shop. This chicken rice restaurant chain was started by a daughter and mother team. I used to frequent their outlet and HQ in Dataran Prima, PJ near my previous work place. My favourite dish is the braised chicken. I ordered a single braised chicken with rice and a glass of iced Chinese tea. The braised chicken was very flavourful, tender and nicely marinated with soya sauce. The total bill came up to be RM9.60. I guess you pay more for the ambient restaurant environment and also the consistency in the quality of food served. Do you think our home grown restaurant chain have a good chance of expanding their franchise network overseas?

I had that at Berjaya Times Square in KL...and also Village Mall, Sg Petani. Like all franchise shops, the food is nice enough...and it's not very expensive. They've an outlet in Kuching but not in Sibu...but we have the SCR - Singapore Chicken Rice...also something like that.
