Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice

Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice is probably our nation's most popular chicken rice stall known by locals and foreigners in one of Singapore’s iconic hawker centres, Maxwell Food Center. Even Anthony Bourdain, the American celebrity chef and food program host once commented that their rice is exceptionally fragrant and delicious on its own.

Over the years, Tian Tian has seen expanding its business into Hawker Centers and even Restaurants like this. We chanced by their outlet in Jalan Pari Burong while sheltering away from the rain amidst our exercise. The place was spacious and airconditioned with lesser Dine-In customers due to the pandemic and partially because of the weather, many were seen packaging food away.

We ordered a small portion of Hainanese Pork Chop as a side dish. The Pork Chop was breaded and fried to golden brown with onions and its sweet savoury sauce drenching them. The meat was tender and overall was decent.

The meal for 2 pax was served with 2 bowls of soup, rice and a plate of steamed chicken.

The portion for 2 Steamed chicken was dressed with scallion as well as coriander and drenched with the piquant sauce that most chicken rice stalls would use. The meat was smooth and tender with transparent layers of "collagen" found on the underside of the skin.

These are the kind of sauces not to be missed when I'm having Chicken Rice. On a side note, their chilli hits right on the spot, firey and garlicky, definitely good to dip the steamed chicken into it.

Rice is grainy with a good texture and packed with fragrance. Look at the glistering coat on the rice, yummy!

Though reputable among the locals and especially my foreign friends who raved about it, I find that with so many reputable chicken rice stalls in Singapore, we are really spoilt for choices and therefore, my vote for chicken rice still goes somewhere else.
