BEST Salted Egg Rice In Singapore! Chicken, Pork, & Halal Options Included!


Rather than being just a come-and-go food trend, Salted Egg Rice has somehow entered our lives as one of the comfort foods to enjoy on a regular basis, and gradually gained an endearing status in many of our hearts.

It is not uncommon to see most zhi char stalls, some economy rice eateries, and even a few Halal joints offering the dish on their menus.

With boneless chicken and/or pork ribs as usual available meat options, our choice of protein is then deep-fried before being doused with savoury salted egg sauce. Chili padi and curry leaves are usually added to the sauce for extra oomph.

The salted egg delight pairs perfectly with white rice, and is sometimes served with an fried egg too. You can say it's an ooh-so-perfect one-bowl rice dish.

As an ardent fan of Salted Egg Rice, PinkyPiggu decided to suss out the very best that our island has to offer!

I love the food at Jade! To say that I'm happy to be back at the Cantonese restaurant to try their Chinese New Year dishes is quite an understatement.

For the upcoming the Year of the Pig, Jade's Executive Chef Leong Chee Yeng has specially-crafted six festive menus. The most sumptuous of it all has to be the 8-course Grand Fullerton Golden Feast 富丽豪华金猪宴 which features delicacies such as lobster, suckling piglet, caviar, and bird's nest.
