This visit to D' Big Mama is a part of my Chicken Rice Saga. My aim is to visit all of Perth's restaurants that offer Hainanese chicken rice on their menus. I always order the leg part if possible because it's much more tender than the breast part. These visits are unannounced and I do not gain anything from these blog posts, maybe except weight.

The first thing we noticed when we walked past the shop was the crowd! This is a Malaysian restaurant, the amount of dishes featured on the menu was quite over-whelming, and only make your lunch decisions that bit harder. But the crowd normally means a good sign so we were quite excited to order our chicken rice.
- FINAL RATING: 7 / 10 -
What a pleasant surprise! Despite the oddly-chopped chicken pieces, their tenderness and juiciness won us over. The soup was flavoursome, the chilli sauce was good and the soy sauce was a perfect balance. If only the rice wasn't over-powered with fat/butter it would have been a much more enjoyable eat. Nonetheless, a yummy meal was had and we would surely return in the future.
