    Tian Tian Chicken Rice has got to be one of the better chicken rice stalls in Singapore. The chilli is just great, although a tad spicy for me(I wish I knew the recipe for it). The chicken itself is rather normal, but the rice is fragrant and tasty without being too oily. $3 gets you a huge plate of rice with about 10 sizeable slices of chicken. Talk about cheap and good! There's a very long queue to boot as well so if you are not the kind to wait 30 mins or more for your food, you might just want to visit during the off peak hours like 4-5pm.

      Having watched the television program "No Reservations" hosted by Anthony Bourdain, i was surprised to find a foreigner actually endorsing his name and effort on this one particular chicken rice stall which is meant to signify all chicken rice stalls in Singapore.

      To say the least, the intrigue brought me to make the long trip down to visit the stall to verify if it is indeed THE best chicken rice stall around.

      I was not disappointed. The chicken is tender, succulent and has a texture and taste all its own. Unlike the copycats and soothsayers around, the chicken had a gingerish taste which is difficult to discern and the chicken is not served hot. In fact, its a little cool when served, possibly due to dipping the chicken into cold water to retain the texture.

      The rice is another matter which needs to be tried. Its fragrance is better then average and easy on the stomach. I'd recommend adding chili sauce to the rice, mixing it up and eating it with some chicken dipped in dark sauce but thats just me.

        Anthony Bourdain swears by their chicken rice and he only eats chicken rice from this stall.

        Seriously, how can anyone resist chicken that's as succulent, juicy and tender as this!

        Some say the Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice is better while some swear by Five Star Chicken Rice or even Boon Tong Kee. However, I beg to differ.

        The texture of the chicken here is the best around. The skin is smooth and they always have that delicious layer of subcutaneous gelatine under the skin what is so wonderfully slurpy. The meat has just the right amount of tenderness and is so savoury. It is said the chicken are dipped into cold water before being served, and that's why the meat tend to be slightly cold when served.
