There are some foods in Singapore that are still selling at very competitive prices eventhough prices of every other food have gone up. One of it is Cze Char and I’m talking about those Cze Char Hor Fun or Bee Hoon. Strangely, it has always remained at $3 eventhough other foods like Chicken Rice or Mee Pok Tah have gone up from $1.50 to almost $3 nowadays(I’m talking about past 2 decades).

The other food I know that still maintained it’s competitive price is Chicken Rice with the drumstick cut. Most stalls used to sell it at $3 for the drumstick + 30cents for rice during those days when a plate of chicken rice would cost you $2. Today, a plate of chicken rice would cost you anything from $2.50 to $4 but yet if you request for the drumstick cut, you’ll still be charged at around $3.30. I have eaten the drumstick cut at many chicken rice stalls(not foodcourt) and have never been charged for more than $3.50. That’s just one of the things that fathoms me.

A saying among foodies has it that if you want to eat chicken feet, you better avoid the braised type because it is black and you can never tell whether is it clean! Then there’s another saying among foodies has it that the white chicken feet(either boiled or steamed) is so mah fan to eat because of the little phalanx bones which need a bit of work to be separated from the skin. So how?


Crystal Chicken Feet $3

I first came across this dish called Crystal Chicken Feet sometime back at a dim sum place. For those who don’t know what this dish is about, it is chicken feet(steamed or boiled) but with the phalanx bones all removed and served with some kind of sauce which is sweet and sour. So it’s just a plate of white chicken feet skin which looks unbelievably alike a plate of jelly fish.

Unfortunately not many places outside of dim sum house serve chicken feet in this form while most sellers in hawker centres would insist that braised is the way to eat chicken feet.


Chicken Drumstick Rice $3.50

If you fancy eating fantastic Crystal Chicken Feet at hawker centre price, Wan Long Chicken Rice at Berseh Food Centre in Jalan Besar is the place to go. Chicken Rice is their forte though they have many other side dishes like Oyster Sauce Vegetables, Thai Style Tofu and Crystal Chicken Feet.


Boneless chicken feet

Won’t beat around the bush, Chicken Rice is good but not great. The achar that’s served with the chicken and the Crystal Chicken Feet is what that gets it going for me. For just $3, you get a big plate of “boneless” chicken feet tossed in some kind of delicious sweet and sour sauce with plenty of thinly-sliced chilled cucumbers and carrots. Good enough for 2 or even 3. Can’t think of anything more refreshing to go with a plate of chicken rice. It’s one of those combinations I look forward to having whenever I’m near the vicinity and have absolutely enjoyed it everytime.

For those who are familiar with Thai cuisine, this should be called Thai Style Chicken Feet in Thailand. If you are on a whim for chicken feet but lazy to suck out the bones, then this Crystal Chicken Feet is what that may fill the gap.


Crystal Chicken Feet $3

Price: $3.50 for Chicken Rice(drumstick) and $3 for Crystal Chicken Feet

Recommendation: Crystal Chicken Feet

Conclusion: Refreshing chicken feet to go with a plate of chicken rice. If you like sweet and sour, this will do very well for you.

Likes: Chicken feet is shiok.

Dislikes: Would be better if the sweetness can go down a bit.

My father used to buy this chicken feet too whenever he Da bao chicken rice home for us. But the one he used to Da bao from is at the chicken rice stall at Bishan near Junction 8 there. He liked it, but I didn’t really fancy this delicacy. :)

Looks a big plate. Some porridge stalls also serve it.

I wonder how they remove the bones from the feet. Not an easy task for sure.
