Poh Poh Chicken Rice @Macallum Street, Penang

BY CK Lam

Poh Poh Chicken Rice stall has made a name for its unique combo of chicken and rice. Owner Kelvin Tan opened the stall in Wan Nen Coffee Shop, on Gat Lebuh Macallum, located off Lebuhraya Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu.

The owner veers away from the conventional roast and poached chicken and instead offers his specialty. He begins marinating the chicken at home before deep-frying it in the shop. Utilizing big size chicken thighs only, he offers a selection of choices including Ham Sap Chicken Rice and Steamed Ginger Chicken Thigh Rice.

The term ham sap chicken was derived from the Cantonese word: hum (salty) sap (wet). The taste of the chicken thigh marinated with light medley of spices is addictive.

Also available is the steamed ginger chicken thigh rice (keong yoong). This Cantonese version is an old school favorite for ginger lovers – the chicken is tender and tasty.

I will be back for more and also looking forward to something different to taste as the owner will be cooking up new recipes in time to come.

The stall is serving breakfast and lunch daily except Thursday.
