Ming Kee Chicken Rice & Porridge 明记鸡饭粥

After Tian Tian Chicken Rice, I think this must be the stall which will actually require people to queue for more than 30min. We queued for exactly 40min slightly before 5pm on a Sunday afternoon. Why the long queue? Well, this appeared in "Where the Queue Starts" and the price is really cheap.
We ordered half a chicken ($12), chicken feet ($3), bean sprouts aka taugeh($3). Each plate of rice costs 50cent.
What's good: The chicken. Admittedly not as good as kampung chicken but the meat was chilled tender and juicy. A good antidote against the sweltering heat inside the stuffy hawker centre.
One won't find chicken hanging at the stall because they are all submerged in cold water before serving (versus hanging upside down at Tian Tian) The knife skills were also considerably above average.  The rice was not as greasy as Boon Tong Kee but still fragrant especially with sweet soy sauce, though some might find the grains hard.
But, the problem for us was the diluted chilli which seemed to be prepared half-heartedly. Old Ma stated that the chilli should be really superb to the extent that one can finish an entire plate of chicken rice without the chicken. 
In short, this place is definitely not the best chicken rice in town. Worth queuing for the price but not for the taste.

Besides the chicken rice, I was tipped off that there was a crispy pancake stall at S-11 just within walking distance. So I went to hunt for it while a family member was queuing for the chicken rice. Ordered half coconut and half peanuts. Texture was not as fabulously crispy as Ah Long's pancake. Nonetheless, I am thankful to the uncle for selling this and so it's still a place to catch this near extinct pancake species if you are in Bishan area :)
