Located in Maxwell Food Centre on Maxwell Road, Tian Tian specializes in Hainanese white chicken rice.
Although Tian Tian is one of my favourite chicken rice, I was hesitant to write this post because I am already so familiar with the taste, hence not sure if my review will be able to give others a good idea of this store. But here I try....
Ordered half a chicken ($12) and a small plate of beansprouts ($2) for three ladies to share.
I like the full works here - the rice, the chicken, the gravy, the chilli and even the black sauce. These five elements when mixed together, sends my low-carbo diet down the drain. This is one of the few places where I will polish off the entire plate of rice, and still crave for more! The rice is fragrant. Chicken is tender. Chilli is salty and spicy. Love love it!

being a hainanese myself, i am greatly drawn to this hainanese style chicken rice. i remember my grandma used to roll up her rice into balls before giving it to us. that was the first time i was drawn to hainanese style rice. hainanese chicken are white chicken and its always very tender. the skin is soft and not oily. it will slide down ur throat and leave you asking for more. i do not usually eat it with chilli as i love the natural original taste.
Have never been a fan of chicken rice besides the roasted chicken. Cause there are times when i ate and i saw blood on the chicken, that made me sick. But my friend assured me that Tian Tian is different. So i decided to give it a try, and it s true. And the chicken is so smooth, so delicious. I am now already a fan of Tian Tian.
