Graded as the 'Best Chicken Rice in Singapore' by international food expert and local residents, make Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice really popular nowadays. Established in 1986 when the local residents still prefer the authentic hawker food that's really affordable and traditional. Actually what make them so special is the secret formula that's located at every single elements on that plate. No wonder their successful story would never stop. Because they are truly escalade the hearty nation food into the whole new level to be acceptable from each people across the globe.
Started from the humble beginning at the Maxwell Food Centre, and now they got 4 outlets across boundaries. But still, the first outlet tend to be more significant and got higher exposure by food enthusiasts. As you can see the queue is there, and it will keep on increasing during lunch time. Approximately 45 minutes per person. Then, what can I suggest you here is to come more early.
As the title suggest, all you need to try is the Chicken Rice (S$ 5.50) itself. So far they got the most succulent chicken ever. Once you bite it, you will feel the perfect consistency between juiciness and moistness of that chicken followed by the most fragrant rice that you never-ever find it somewhere else (only here). Even like Anthony Bourdain said, you can eat that rice without any other toppings since it's really tasty and rich of flavour. Truly brilliant.
Next, Beansprouts with Cuttle Fish (S$ 4.00) must be added on your table. It's fresh, crunchy, and salty. The way they cooked this is just impressive since the flavour of it has proof me right. Really make sense to be paired with that Chicken Rice. Because it will compliment each other.
Whenever people ask me about place-to-go for local cuisines, of course Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice comes first in my mind. Because they served the most delicious chicken rice ever without any preservatives. Salute.
