Uncle Lim’s Kitchen (Malaysian Food) – Croydon Whitgift Centre

Fairly quick post.

Was trying to trace where my grandfather had worked in Croydon (plus do some shopping… needed a bus ride and time to do some reading as well, so ended up in Croydon). It was definitely inside a shopping centre in Croydon, and there was once a Chinese restaurant MummyGeek used to go to visit a few times… I was wondering whether it could where Uncle Lim’s Kitchen is located… It looks like there could have been a Chinese restaurant there…


Well, I hardly eat Malaysian food, so this was my chance to eat Hainan Chicken Rice!




The Hainan Chicken Rice was quite hard to spot on the menu. It was like near the bottom of the list. It’s not too expensive. It looks like there’s only three pieces of chicken in the picture, but there’s a few more pieces hidden…


There’s a lot of soy sauce in this dish, so it was a little salty towards the end of eating this dish. The rice definitely tasted as if there was chicken broth. It’s definitely not plain white rice.


The server  almost forgot my Malaysian coffee… aaaah… coffeeee!

Finished! But couldn’t finish the last bits of rice. Too salty! It’s definitely a popular dish as I could see a few people had ordered this.


Overall a nice quiet experience before a rush of people came to eat.
Total came to less than £10. Nice lunch!

My geeky rating: 4.5/5

Good points: 
– Nice and spacious retaurant
– Food was ok, apart from too much soy sauce!
– Nice coffee too!
– Inexpensive

Bad points:
– Just the soy sauce really… wish I had more of the chicken though!
