$2 chicken rice

I dont go chinatown very often, but a week ago, my friend brought me to this restaurent selling hainanese chicken rice. The chicken is tender and juicy and the chilli is especially good! The very fact that it costs only $2 makes me want to go back for more. I also tried the tofu and the Ngoh Hiong and they were great as well. I was told by the staff that they had a branch at Changi Village, and went there yesterday to try it out. It was just as good as chinatown if not better. I highly reccommend this restaurent if u want affordable and good food. Actually i wish they had more variety of food too.

First time order, it stated boneless chicken rice, they gave me chicken with bone and when I question them i thought your signboard write boneless, they say I need to tell them in advance. If you need us to tell you in advance please change the signboard. This Will be my last time buying from them.

Please drop by http://rollingwrites.blogspot.sg/2012/08/tiong-bahru-hainanese-boneless-chicken.html for pictures!

Seeing that everybody in front of me opted for the Steamed White Chicken Rice ($2.50, $3.50 option available), I decided to get that as well. Honestly, that isn't something that I would risk having garlicky breath over. The rice is passable and the meat is tender. The rather spicy chilli sauce complements the chicken well. However, I'm not accustomed to the taste of the soup.

Also, there's just something missing about the chicken- smoothness and chewiness factor. Compared to Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice, I would opt for Tian Tian.

This is a stall with the name "Tiong Bahru" on the sign board, so it must be good. The newspaper clipping displayed at the front of the stall reported that the shop has been around for 20 years and the stall owner was one of the chefs dishing out chicken rice at the Mandarin Hotel. That would be a good reason to give the chicken rice a try. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that both the white and roasted chicken were very good! The flesh was tender and tasty, and the sauce was savoury and sweet. The only thing I didn't like about "boneless chicken" was that they tended to flatten the flesh with their cleaver after deboning. So you were left with a flat piece of meat which you couldn't really sink your teeth into. I found the rice and the chilli quite ordinary, but one of my kakis really loved the chilli, describing it as having a "kick".
