Ah-Tai Hainanese Chicken Rice

When I saw an Anthony Bourdain episode in Singapore, I decided to give this dish a try.

Later I found out from web, that the chefs who were working in recommended Tian Tian Hainanese stall have established their own stall a few meters away, third stall from their previous employer. It is hard to decide, shall I go to Tian Tian, who earn the credits from the episode or the chef's stall that knows the receipts. Because food spot is not just about the taste, other things are evaluated. Well, I made my choice, Ah Tai's.

The foodspot is just six hundred meters away from China Town. My order came after a few minutes. The rice is well cooked, really tender and Pandan leave fragranced. The oily chicken meat, shall it be tipped in garlic chilli sauce and harmonized with soy sauce, really feel good in the mouth. An extra order of bean sprouts dish , without doubts complete the meal.

There is another alternative, you just order a Chicken Rice Set that has Pak Choy Oyster Sauce included, which combined will make your stomach full. It works.
