3. Puncak Best Noodles Halal Restaurant

Their name may be shouting out their noodles, but Puncak Best Noodles Halal Restaurant also serves a mean plate of Salted Egg Chicken Rice ($8). The first thing you’ll notice is that their salted egg gravy is definitely on the more runny end, almost soup-like. This is great for folks like myself who like to get all the white rice soaked in tasty sauce.

The chicken chunks are placed on top of the sauce instead of being drizzled over, which prevents them from getting soggy as quickly. If you’re Team Crispy Chicken plus Liquidy Sauce, this will definitely float your boat. They also have a Salted Egg Fish Rice ($8.50), with golden fried fish fillets.

Address: 14 Scotts Road, #05-94, Far East Plaza, Singapore 228213
Opening hours: Sun-Mon, Wed-Fri 11:30am to 9pm, Sat 11:30am to 9:30pm
Tel: 6738 4348

4. Jia Yuen Eating House

At Jia Yuen Eating House, you can customise your salted egg meal to your liking. Take your pick from proteins such as chicken ($8), pork or fish slices ($10 each), and pork belly or pork ribs ($12 each). Then, choose from regular salted egg or creamy salted egg sauce; they’re priced the same but the latter has a creamier butter base, whereas the former is more salted egg yolk-centric.

You can even top up $2 for a heaping scoop of crunchy cereal to add some textural pizzazz. Previously operating at a Joo Chiat coffeeshop, they have since relocated to Tanjong Pagar Xchange which is right above the MRT station. Hooray for more cheap food in the CBD!

5. GLC Restaurant

If you’re on the prowl for a solid halal zi char eatery, make a trip to GLC Restaurant in Tai Seng. Their Salted Egg Chicken Dice Rice ($5.80) is one of these best sellers, which says a lot as it’s competing against popular house signatures such as the JB-Style Beehoon ($6) and Seafood San Mee ($7)

Patrons love that the sauce is perfectly balanced in terms of milkiness and savouriness from the salted egg. The casual eatery is located just four minutes away from Tai Seng MRT Station on foot. It’s well worth a visit if you’re looking for a Muslim-friendly makan spot, with plenty of halal zi char dishes and rice plates to try.

With branches in Bedok and Telok Blangah, Cui Xiang Yuan has a super extensive selection of rice plates—41, to be exact. Options range from the standard Sweet And Sour Pork Rice ($6), Curry Chicken Rice ($6), and Sambal Petai Rice ($7) to rarer concoctions such as Fish Head Bitter Gourd Rice ($7), Kang Kong Sotong Rice ($7), and Dried Chilli Frog Rice ($10).

Amidst the myriad options, their Salted Egg Chicken Rice ($6) remains a fan favourite. Crispy chicken chunks are tossed in the salted egg sauce so that each piece is adequately coated, without causing too big of a gravy puddle in your plate. If you prefer your proteins to carry a tonne of flavour without necessarily swimming in sauce, this is the spot for you.

Situated a five-minute walk from Braddell MRT Station is Chuang Yi Seafood. The zi char stall serves a series of rice plates which are a hit with residents in the area. Options include Curry Pork Rice ($6.50) and Black Pepper Venison Rice ($8), but their Salted Egg Chicken Cube Rice ($6.50) is what really warrants a trip down. 

The sauce is said to be more pronounced in salted egg notes, with a savoury kick that isn’t dulled by too much milkiness. Customers also like that the chicken pieces actually comprise substantial meat, instead of being too batter-heavy.
