Simple and Delicious

One wouldn't think much of a simple chicken rice. But thats how special Tian Tian is, they have managed to turn a simply dish to something amazing for the tastebuds. Especially tender and fragrant, the meat goes so well with the rice. Definitely one of the best chicken rice in SG.

Tian Tian chicken rice has been my favourite chicken rice for as long as i can remember. Their chicken is very tender and blends very well with their sauce. Their rice is also very fragrant. Apart from chicken, their side dishes are also great. Highly recommended.

Not a hawker food lover, and that's one of my few hawker experiences. Overall quite good chicken rice, very tender and juicy. The rice is good and can eat on its own. Affordable and worth the money.Nice try!

Good but Ah Tai clearly took the best of Tian Tian with him when he left

For the full writeup of Tian Tian vs Ah Tai, please go to http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2014/08/maxwell-road-food-centre-ah-tai-vs-tian.html

Tian Tian's
 Chicken ($5.70) is clear and light, but served jarringly chilled. It was like eating leftover chicken straight from the fridge. It would have fared much better tepid or at the very least, room temp. Still, the chicken was juicy but a tad tougher than the one at Ah Tai; the fluffy rice was tasty and surprisingly not oily, but not as flavourful as at Ah Tai; while the heady chilli was potent but reeked too much of ginger.

Although Tian Tian has a lot more accolades, it should be borne in mine that Tian Tian has had a longer history than Ah Tai, who only recently set up his own chicken rice stall. I think, Ah Tai, the chef who was at the helm at Tian Tian for the better part of Tian Tian's illustrious history, makes a better plate of chicken rice at his own setup than where he came from. Tian Tian definitely lost a star when Ah Tai left.
