Despite the ravingly bad review at the bottom, my husband & I still decided to visit Yet Con anyway as we live in close proximity & that we never venutured into Purvis street for food before.
We ordered Hainanese Chicken + Sweet and Sour Pork.
The sweet and sour pork, in my husband's own word, was the best in Singapore he has ever tried. I found it quite tasty & less oily than most in Singapore too but compared with those from Hong Kong, the flavor can still be a bit more balanced.
The Hainese chicken I believed has the most controversy & many compared with Tian Tian, for that I would say the followings:
1) Texture & tenderness -wise, both shops had their chicken well done.
2) If flavor is more important for you, go to Tian Tian.
3) If you wish to be able to taste the chicken with natural chicken flavor, Yet Con wins - hands down. This may also explain why their chicken is so much more expensive.
The only thing I really didn't like (the non-existent service aside - though I don't find the service "Bad" per se - I have seen much worse.) is that they have this strange public toilet like odor coming out everytime they open the door to the kitchen. That was really yuck considering we paid $26 for a 2 person's meal.
Overall I will say the place is worth a visit once or twice in a year for their chicken & pork, though you won't find me eating there that often - partly due to the cost, partly because I really don't like the odor from the kitchen.
