Free Trade Zone in Bayan Lepas has brought tremendous traffic into the area that lead to blossoming of food business. You lunch hour could be limited, therefore a quick, filling and nice meal could really do you some help. Isn't chicken rice always a popular choice? Here is the 5 places that you shall give it a try.
The name of Sin Lam Huat shall sound familiar to you as it is a popular name for Chicken Rice stall. However, we did notice there are slight variation between them. Under the roof of Relau's Golden Lake coffees hop, this Sin Lam Huat stall glutted with patrons. We loved the meticulously cut meat, its texture, and the sauce glistening the meat. The chai boey's taste is finely tuned with spiciness, sourness and saltiness.

Boon Kee is a very different than the rest, selling Ipoh's style bean sprout chicken. Silky soft poached chicken flooded with delectable soy sauce and sesame oil, accompanied with a full plate of bean sprout makes the carnivorous meal less sinful. We always topped up Loh Egg. If rice bored you, opted for their slim koay teow noodle soup. Something you shall not missed it here would be the Kopi Kao and Teh Kao, exclusively served in this coffee shop.

Kim Poh is another eatery located not far from Wah Chai. The meat platter is well drenched with soy sauce that gives you a very heavy yet palatable sensory taste. Roasted pork lover will be delighted to find Kim Poh's roasted pork served with crispy skin that gives you the crunch sound on every bite. If you have been sensitive with the bad odour of duck meat, give it a try at Kim Poh as we found the sauce well covering the smell.
