Very tasty, generous with the chicken, and funny uncles and aunties

Tian Tian’s chicken is smooth and the skin is silky, and unlike other hainanese chicken rice sellers, Tian Tian does a slightly thicker sauce instead of the usual light soy-sauce seasoning. We opted for extra chicken at just $1 more, and it was TOTALLY worth it! They didn't just give 2-3 bite-sized pieces more like at some other stalls, they really loaded up. The chilli was really spicy though, and I have tasted better and more flavourful ones elsewhere.

Check out my food blog where I talk about Tian Tian in more detail as well as let you know which are some of the other best chicken rice places here in Singapore. If you're visiting Singapore, you can't miss out on it! My friend was glad he didn't!

I didn't encounter the poor service as mentioned by some other reviewers - the uncles and aunties were full of smiles, and jokingly informed my visiting friend that HE should be the man ("don't let the lady do it!") and carry the tray of food! Lol.

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.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
