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 they made a mistake with our change at Tiantian when we were there. We were charged $9 each at Tiantian and only $8 for the both of us at this place. The food was comparable except the chilli sauce was not as good and they don't do lines as fast as Tiantian - took us about 3 times longer to get our food. We did, however, also get a bowl of the chicken broth in addition to the chicken, rice, bok choy and sauce. It was very good and very cheap.

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.

If you've had Tian Toan, make sure you give this a try. It's located in the Maxwell Food Centre. 3 stalls down from Tian Tian.

So apparently the old chef from Tian Tian decided to open up his own place. I wanted to give it a try to see how it stacks up. I placed a take away order for half a chicken, two rice, and some gizzards and liver. Pricing is about the same as Tian Tian.

As I expected, this was just as great. I'm surprise that this was is it that busy. I was able to order and get my food within minutes. So if Tian Tian has a long air, just go 3 stalls down and get your Hainan Chicken here.

Decided to try ah tai chicken rice and see how it stacks up to Tian tian

Good
- spicer chili
- give dark soya
- comes with soup

Not as good as tian tian
- the rice is a bit firmer and less flavourful whereas tian Tian rice is nicer & tastier

When it come to chicken ... both pretty similar Hard to tell the diff

The queue was huge, despite this, the chicken and rice were great as were the greens on the side. Well cooked, very cheap, relatively healthy and exactly as expected in terms of taste. Give it a go.

Hawker centre food can be a slightly daunting experience if you’ve never experienced it and you have to know what to expect before you order it. You’re going to get a plastic plate and cutlery yet possibly some of the best, honest and most reasonable food you’ve had in ages.
