SINGAPORE HAWKER FOOD | Ah Tai Hainanese Chicken Rice (阿仔海南鸡饭) | Maxwell Food Centre
Did you know that there are a total of 7 chicken rice stalls in Maxwell Food Centre? Chicken rice is an iconic Singaporean dish loved by many. To me, Ah Tai Hainanese Chicken Rice stands out from the rest.
Mr Wong used to work for Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice operating just a few stalls away. However, due to a difference in opinions, he eventually left Tian Tian, and opened Ah Tai Chicken Rice in 2012.
With 30 years of experience in cooking chicken rice, Mr Wong’s chicken rice boasts its tender and fresh chicken, enhanced by a sweet homemade sauce. The chicken skin is smooth and jellylike, slipping into your mouth easily. Coupled with fragrant rice enriched with chicken stock and spices, a mouthful of chicken and rice is something that will make you go yum….delicious!
Another of the stall’s specialties is the Crystal Chicken Feet, deboned individually by hand. A plate of chicken feet offers you a refreshing experience, crunchy, drenched in sweet sauce. A tinge of chilli sauce will make the whole experience better!
Just like many other chicken rice stalls, Ah Tai’s chilli sauce is a secret recipe, packed with a punch. It goes very well with their dishes and rice, and just a little will immediately perk up your senses.
Offering a plate of chicken rice at just $3.50, a generous serving of thickcut chicken is certainly value for money!
