Temasek, Parramatta, Sydney West

In my opinion, Temasek has one of THE BEST Hainanese chicken rices around. Located in Parramatta, it is a well-known Malaysian/Singaporean restaurant famous for chili crab and chicken rice. It has been around for years and still remains super popular attesting for the quality of its dishes.

Best to book a table here, but can also walk in and see if you get lucky. We got lucky and managed to walk in for a feed at 630pm but had to vacate by 730pm - good thing we are fast eaters!

We already knew what we wanted to wasted no time in ordering.

Laksa with Prawn and Chicken - $19.80 - yes this is slightly on the pricey side but just look at the toppings! The chicken used in this laksa is actualy the same chicken that is in the Hainanese chicken rice and the prawns are fresh prawns - not those tasteless frozen ones. Combined with the delicious laksa soup based, it means this is well worth the price tag.

Hainanese chicken rice - $14 - What everyone must come and eat here. You can also order the chicken by itself without the rice. The chicken - super juicy, slightly warm, skin on, not too fatty but so so suculent and last bu tot least, de-boned to perfection. No loose tendons or bits of bone here. The rice - cooked with real chicken stock, you can really taste the difference. Accompany chicken stock, chili sauce and dark soy sauce are just bonuses.
