Chatterbox voted as new "Hainanese Chicken Rice Heavenly King"
The search for the new “Four Hainanese Chicken Rice Heavenly Kings” which was jointly organised by Singapore Press Holdings’ Lianhe Wanbao and OMY, took place over a month, where ten Hainanese Chicken Rice stalls in Singapore were shortlisted and readers were invited to vote for the best Chicken Rice via SMS, MMS and the OMY website.
Chatterbox’s history goes way back to the year 1971, in conjunction with Meritus Mandarin Singapore’s grand opening. It quickly became the talk of town because it was the first time local hawker fare was served in a hotel.
Hainanese chicken rice was served on its menu as it was one of the favourite local hawker dishes. As the dish grew in popularity, it became branded as “The Mandarin Chicken Rice”, as Chatterbox’s signature dish, due its widely publicised fragrant rice, specially bred chicken, special-graded soya sauce as well as its house-made chilli sauce and grounded ginger.
To thank customers for their support, Chatterbox is offering a 15% discount on its Mandarin Chicken Rice, from 18 July to 7 August 2008, to Lianhe Wanbao and OMY readers. A copy of the discount coupon can be obtained in the 18 July edition of Lianhe Wanbao and is also available from the OMY website.
