05102018 / JI Charcoal Grill, Singapore

On the day I arrived Singapore earlier this month, I had my stretch therapy session with Evelin at Dr. Stretch, Suntec City. I was having muscle tension issue few days before leaving for Singapore and I had no choice but to tell Sister to make an appointment for me.

To be honest, I wasn’t keen because a session is like 1.5 hours of physical torture. The session can be very painful especially in the areas which you aren’t flexible the most. My stretch therapy session started at 6PM. An hour and a half later, I was done and off I went for dinner straightaway. I already knew what I wanted to eat so I got the ordeal done quickly.

Arrived at JI Charcoal Grill with only a customer in the queue before me. Despite I had known what I wanted to eat, I scanned through the menu quickly and gave my order to the staff. There were only two staffs manning the stall at the time. The elder staff was in-charge of grilling the meat upon order while the younger one handled the other tasks.

Char Grilled Chicken Chop with Curry Rice | S$6.80

The grilled chicken chop had been pre-cooked earlier and further grilled upon order. The chicken chop which I had was rather dry and tough in my opinion. The skin looked quite burnt and charred in the picture above. The curry gravy on the other hand met my expectation. It was packed with flavors and yet spicy at the same time.

The highlight of this dish was the onsen egg, which could have been nicer if served hot instead of room temperature. Having said so, the onsen egg yolk remained runny in consistency.

Aside from serving chicken chop, they serve pork chop and Nasi Lemak too. Sister commented that their Nasi Lemak was better than their Char Grilled Chicken Chop with Curry Rice. I guess Nasi Lemak would have to wait until the next time I visit Singapore again.

PS: JI Charcoal Grill is a non-Halal eatery as pork is served.
