Tho Yuen Chicken Rice Restaurant is an old Cantonese restaurant located in a two storey shop house on Campbell Street. Business has been going around for many decades and the place is well maintained. The interior surrounding is quite airy and bright with the skylight coming in through the adjustable roofing of the air well.
The restaurant serves dim sum for breakfast and varieties of noodles, porridge and chicken rice during lunch hour. You may choose to have the Fish Head steam with vermicelli or smooth hor fun (rice noodle). The fish head steamed with ginger is served together with the noodle in a wonderful aroma soy sauce. It is delicious with the natural ‘sweetness’ of the fish. The cut red chili complements the dish perfectly.
The Stir Fried Yin Yeong is a mix of slightly charred hor fun and vermicelli. The noodles are fried with egg, vegetable, seafood and char siew (barbecued pork).
Another noodle dish is the Sang Mee with braised duck and ginger. The noodle comes with generous pieces of well braised duck in delectable gravy with hint of ginger.
Other selections include the Chicken Rice and Sui Kow (dumpling) soup .The Sui Kow is packed with a mixture of water chestnuts and minced pork. Do check out their Dim Sum too.
The restaurant is especially crowded during peak hours, with some customers having to settle for the tables set up in the pavement.
