Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice

Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice


I’ve been wanting to eat from this chicken rice stall since god knows when.

At first, I heard good rumours about this place…

Then I found out that Anthony Bourdain swears by their chicken rice and he only eats chicken rice from that stall. It’s true! Dot spotted him eating there earlier this year. I also posted about it with the picture Dot snapped of him eating the chicken rice!

Seriously, how can anyone resist chicken that’s as succulent, juicy and tender as this! Here’s a closeup shot of the famous chicken that will surely make your mouth water:

I’m like drooling as I type this!

However, I have to confess that I’m not exactly an avid chicken rice lover – I can live without it. I hardly eat chicken rice actually. Only once in a while. Don’t ask me why! I think it’s because there’s just so many stalls but not that many good ones?

But hey, I’m glad I decided to try out this one. Which stall is it? I suppose you would have realised by now (from the title of my post). I really do think that Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice rocks! Well I like it. Do you?

Some say the Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice is better while some swear by Five Star Chicken Rice or even Boon Tong Kee. So what’s a hungry person to do when he/she’s craving for a good plate of chicken rice and wants to try the best? I say go with your instinct.

Or just stare at the above pictures of Tian Tian’s chicken. I think that might be enough to give you an answer. At most, you can always skip the chicken and get yourself some duck or fish instead.

i go to this stall too! their main stall is actually at the ABC market but during the renovation they concentrated more on the Maxwell branch, so we followed them. 🙂

and yes, their chicken rice is fantabulous…

My Daddy always ta-pao from this stall! My family don’t fancy other chicken rice stalls, only this one! And we stay in the extreme East so we’re quite mad, lah. HahA! (I don’t mind the East Coast stretch of Hainanese Chicken Rice stalls though..as long as I got myself some lip-smackin’ grated ginger. HehE)

I miss chicken rice back home…

I am a Singaporean, who recently moved to the Bay Area, CA. Hardly(or never) seen any chicken rice here…not to mention the word ” delicious”,”yummy”, “juicy” chicken rice.

For some flavors of Bay Area, CA, tune in to:
