If you walk around the second floor of the electronics shopping centre Sim Lim Square, you should come across a stall that always manages to gather a crowd during peak hours, regardless of the day of the week. That stall is 3 Meals a Day, known for its amazing salted egg chicken rice.
This isn’t the only 3 Meals a Day outlet in the country—there’s one in Hougang that has also received rave reviews—but we’ll focus on the Sim Lim outlet as it’s the more popular one.

A plate of the stall’s renowned Salted Egg Chicken w/ Rice will set you back $5.90. What you get is a pile of chicken bits fried till crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and of course, drenched in a creamy salted egg yolk sauce. The sauce is said to be excellent, with a highly savoury taste and hints of spiciness. All of that is joined by a serving of rice, a fried sunny-side up egg, and some keropok.
