Do you know how many shapes chicken rice can take in Malaysia? As far as I know there are three with the most common one served in a semi-spherical or bowl shaped. We can all agree there’s nothing fancy about this. In Melaka, their chicken rice is available in the shape of a ping pong sized ball, which is something quite special for Northern Malaysians. Then in East Malaysia specifically Sabah in the town of Kota Kinabalu, the Hainan Chicken Rice at Wiya Coffee Restoran is served in a pyramid shape!
But before I claim pyramid shaped chicken rice is only available in KK, luckily I did some research first and found that it is also available in Singapore’s Boon Tong Kee. Phew, I saved myself from embarrassment there lol.
When KampungBoyCityGal and us went to KK, Wiya’s chicken rice was on our must-try list just because of the pyramid shaped rice alone. I honestly didn’t know it existed until we researched for the food in KK. When it comes to uniqueness, this pyramid shaped rice takes the cake. But the shape aside, the rice was nothing special really.
