Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice

What makes a great chicken rice? Is it the fragrance of the rice? The tenderness of the chicken? Or the spiciness of the chilli?



Maxwell Food Centre is famous for its Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice. I remembered my first time eating it many years ago. It was a very sumptuous and satisfying experience.


Even though it is so popular, a plate of Tian Tian chicken rice costs only $2.50 or $3. The excellent rice which is thoroughly coated with irresistable chicken broth is sufficiently chewy in consistency and extremely fragrant and flavorful. The steamed white chicken is fleshy, tender and tasty. The special chilli is spicy and savory and complements the rice very well.

Tian Tian indeed lives up to its reputation of being one of the best chicken rice in Singapore.
