Justice to Yet Con... Or is it?

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.

Yet Another Con.....

Real disapointment as this was THE place for chicken rice ! (including the ambience)
Terrible value for money: we paid close to $40 for 2 persons
Roast pork was dry and hard; portion of chicken was right for 2 persons and the veg was huge (to be fair not sure if they only have one size)
The rice which used to be their signature'dish' was bland.
When we paid at the counter and were rather surprised at the bill, we tried to ask the old guy at the counter if the amount was correct - he simply glared at us and just kept repeating 38.40! 38.40!
Next time we're going across the street....!

Terrible Service & very rude old man @ the counter

While the chicken rice is nice, the service made it a terrible feeling .... We asked for drinks orders from the old man at the counter and he passed very rude remarks. We felt like we owe him a living and only they serve good chicken rice in Singapore!
