3) Rojak - 8%
4) Char kway teow - 5%

Chicken rice is also available in other countries like Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines but in Singapore aside from the usual steamed chicken type, you can also order the roasted version, which is also available with char siew pork.
The campaign which was spearheaded by four NTU students wants people to appreciate Singapore food heritage. In a statement by the team leader of the campaign, Clement Cher said, "Chicken rice has a multi-cultural appeal in our island state."
