Mummy Knows Best: The Story Behind the Chicken Rice Shop

The Breakfast Grille presents a Mother's Day Special with The Chicken Rice Shop (TCRS) founder Gaik Wong, and her daughter Wong Kah Lin, the CEO of the company. 

They discuss:

-- How the recipe for the chicken rice served at their restaurants is a meld of both grandmothers' receipes (one from Hainan & the other from Penang)

-- Although chicken rice is available everywhere from your local warung to high-end restaurants, they discuss what makes TCRS' chicken rice different from the other places 

-- How they keep the menu exciting and fresh for their customers, revamping the menu or introducing new offerings -- and how they are working with celebrity chef Datuk Ismail Ahmad

-- What they think of the tussle over claims of the origins of chicken ricebetween Malaysia and Singapore

-- How inflation/ rising cost of living is the biggest challenge 

-- Their catering service and the possibility of having a delivery service

-- Expansion plans locally and regionally: They currently have 60 stores nationwide -- 8 overseas: mostly in shopping malls

-- The working relationship between mother and daughter
