Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice @ Maxwell Centre (Tanjong Pagar), Singapore

I think many tourists have heard of Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice.

Honestly, I am not a fan of chicken rice because my mom often bought me chicken rice for lunch during my teenage years. It was too frequent that I got sick of it…

I used to live in Tanjong Pagar area and I have never tried Tian Tian Chicken Rice. I have heard it was recommended in Michelin Guide Book but I do not like queuing for too long…

I finally tried it after I left Singapore.

I went back Singapore, last August for a friend’s baby 100 days celebration.

I order chicken rice (chicken breast, need to inform the staff) @ SGD 3.50 & bean sprouts @ SGD 2.00. Total of SGD 5.50.


I do not think there is the right way to eat chicken rice. Everyone has their preference. Some people like it with all the sauces (Chilli sauce , dark soya sauce & ginger paste). Others might just like it with one sauce.

I prefer it with both chilli and dark soya sauce.

Apparently, there are a few outlets in Singapore but I went to the main outlet as it was nearest to my hotel.

There is a new outlet at Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. I have yet tried it. I might try it some day. It is the fancier version from Singapore though.

Address: Maxwell Food Centre #01-10/11, 1 Kadayanallur Street, Singapore 069184

If you ever visit Singapore, please give Tian Tian Chicken Rice a try. Maybe avoid lunch and dinner hours if you can.

Till then…
