Tried lots of food in different hawker centres during our week in Singapore. Ah Tai Chicken Rice was our absolute favourite. It was simply delicious - with the best rice ever.

We came back for some food at Tiantian but they were closed. A few doors down was this place. Apparently the guy that owns this used to be the chef at Tiantian. This place was much better value for money than tiantian, Either that or...More

The owner of this establishment was once the cook at Tian Tian which became famous for Hianinesse Chicken . He then opened his own shop two shops down from Tian Tian. An Tian is highly recommended by the locals.

Ah Tai is the best Hainanese Chicken Rice I have tried in many trips to Singapore. Highly recommended, no need to queue. By the way it comes with free soup!

Ah Tai chicken rice - 2 stalls down from the famous Tian Tian. The two are actually quite comparable. Ah Tai makes a very good chicken rice, and Id say if Tian Tian is a 10 Ah Tai comes it just behind at 9. I...More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
