After closing for almost a year, many of the stall’s regular customers were left wondering when they will get the chance to savour the taste of Heng Ji’s chicken rice again.

Since then, the stall has apparently been seeing snaking queues of customers waiting to get their chicken rice fix.

Reasonably priced & mouth-watering

Though located amid the hustle and bustle of Chinatown, a plate of chicken rice from Heng Ji won’t break the bank.


A regular serving starts from $2.50 onwards, and you can even opt for half a chicken at only $10, which seems to be a popular choice for many.


Opens only at 3pm

It’s important to note that the stall opens from 3pm onwards. So if you’re thinking of heading down for lunch, perhaps start your day with a heavy breakfast first.
