Michelin Chicken Rice at such affordable prices.

Chicken was tender and moist. Rice was quite good.

But what really was damn good for me, is their chilli, got strong ginger taste. Shiok.

Very long queue though, came at 11am on Sunday, and already got over 15 person in front of me.

Arrived at 10.40am to find the queue already 7 long. But it moved quickly and within 5 mins I got my plate of chicken rice.

I ordered steamed chicken, drum stick rice with chicken gizzard and braised egg as add ons. Total damage was $5.70! Incredible considering the inflation we see throughout Singapore.

Along with my order came a bowl of chicken soup and they garnished the plate of chicken rice with parsley and salted vegetables. The chilli sauce is free flow and it was spicy enough and piquant to boot. An excellent dip.

The chicken was super tender and silky, especially the skin. The drizzled soya sauce and sesame oil accentuated the flavours of the chicken. Add their chilli sauce and you get a near nirvana experience eating the chicken.

The rice was not exactly fluffy but far from being too dense with oil. Their chicken gizzard was clean tasting and crunchy but the braised egg was very normal.

Surprisingly their salted vegetables helped to add another tone of flavour to the chicken and the rice. I only wish they could be more generous with it cause I only got a few strands of this delicious pickle.

Overall, well deserving of their Michelin Bib Gourmand. Strongly recommend over some of those over hyped chicken rice stalls. Please note that only this stall in Tiong Bahru market got the Bib Gourmand award.


Hawker Cheong Weng Wah still helms this brand, known for being among the earliest pioneers (since 1988) of the ice-blanch technique which renders optimal tenderness of the chicken meat and silkiness of the skin.
Both poached and roasted versions are equally popular, having clean meaty sweet savoury flavour, with the tender moist succulent texture of the chicken. The gravy lends a light salty savoury herbal taste, yum.
The fluffy rice is fragant with grainy sweet herbal spice notes, having been infused with ginger, garlic, red onions, and spring onions.
A duo of vegetables, juicy cucumbers with vegetal sweet notes, and crunchy pickled mustard greens with vegetal salty sweet earthy herbal flavour, are served alongside. Completed with the trio of dipping sauces.

Opened since 1988, @tiongbahruhainanesechickenrice have been awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand for six consecutive years. Since then, they have been trying to increase its accessibility in the heartlands, launching numerous outlets across the island.

I gave their chicken rice a try awhile back. Went there during weekend lunch hour and there was a pretty long queue.

Having learnt the ropes of making Chicken Rice from a friend who used to work at Mandarin Orchard Hotel – famed for Chatterbox Chicken Rice, @tiongbahruhainanesechickenrice chicken meat was indeed smooth, not too oily and somewhat juicy. But I personally prefer if the meat were more flavorful and juicier.

While I enjoyed the less oily and fluffy chicken rice, it’s more subtle in taste and I personally wish that there were more fragrance and flavour to it. Also, I love my chicken rice to be doused in fragrant chilli sauce to elevate the flavours, but the chilli sauce was slightly watery that day, hence dampening the experience.

Nonetheless, @tiongbahruhainanesechickenrice serves a hearty plate of chicken rice especially with them being more accessible to the public now.

This is another stall that has been included in Michelin Bib Gourmand List. The steamed chicken ($5.30 for drum stick and chicken wing rice) is really smooth and tender, and the skin has a jelly-like consistency. It goes well with the salted vegetables served on the side and the fiery chilli. However, the rice is too dry for my liking - wished it is more moist and fluffy. Interestingly, this stall also sells fried Ngor Hiang ($3) and I love how crispy and fragrant it is.

The picture is ugly because I couldn’t resist eating it before taking a photo.

When I was there at around 6pm, they have sold out the roasted chicken.

The acidity from the salted vegetable blends in the chicken rice superbly, bringing out the fragrance of the rice.

And the chilli is perfect. Enough tanginess to equate the spiciness
