The latest reviews from real people you can trust

Tbh, Tong Fong Fatt doesn’t really need a super comprehensive review. It has always been my go-to for a no frills, delectable plate of white chicken rice.

I’m an absolute sucker for BONELESS cut chicken rice and this hawker pioneer offers a fantastic rendition of it. I guess one of their only downsides is that it might not be very popular with roasted chicken rice fans, for obvious reasons...

In my humble opinion, their Ghim Moh outlet serves the BEST tasting chicken rice, however we do urge you to check out Tong Fong Fatt’s other stalls around Singapore too.

Flipping through the menu and I noticed that they have many stir fry dishes, including the chicken rice that most people go there for. As their roasted chicken was sold out for the day, we got the traditional Hainanese poached chicken, which was perhaps my preferred choice these days. From my seated position, I am able to see that the staff actually submerge the cooked chickens into a cold water bath before it gets hung up, waiting to be chopped. This dipping into cold water stops the chicken from cooking further and results in a gelatinous layer underneath the skin, which is commonly found in Hainanese chicken rice. Overall, not the best I’ve eaten, but definitely a decent one.

Most people might head over to YY Kafei Dian for their iconic kaya butter buns, but they have a special item that, quite literally, flies off the shelves once it’s out to the window. This sugared doughnut might seemed unassuming and you can probably find this at your neighbourhood bakery, but this is nothing like it. In fact, I do not know what magic they add into their baking dough or how they make these doughnuts, but each of them comes out fluffy and chewy. There is zero of that used oil aroma and the sugar coating complements these homemade doughnuts well. This is what I call, simple made into perfection.

Claypot rice

A dish is not considered claypot rice if it was merely cooked in a claypot. To be eligible to be called claypot rice, the rice must have the smokiness and wok hei. Unfortunately, the claypot in this claypot rice was just in name only. Tasted more like rice with dark sauce and chicken.

Char kway teow with prawns.

Good amount of seafood. Taste is decent, but nothing special. Do yourself a favour and order a dry hor fun from the nearby zhi char shop. Will probably be better value.

First time trying the famous Tian Tian.

It has an old school taste to it and the rice is nicely textured.

Generally still overhyped, I would rank it as nice and decent.

Dare I say one of the best, if not the best fried chicken wings in town!

Da-Ji is a stall that sells Hainanese chicken rice but is way more famous for its fried chicken wings.

The stall only opens for business in the early evening and there is often a snaking queue outside of the hawker centre for its shatteringly crisp golden brown fried chicken wings which are juicy, tender and well marinated.

I personally find them to be better than Eng Kee (which is my gold standard when it comes to fried chicken wings) because the flavors of the marinade permeate through Da Ji's chicken wings whereas Eng Kee can be inconsistent at times. Eng Kee is however better if you are saving them for later or the next day because their batter remains shatteringly crisp even after reheating in the toaster.

With just SGD2.80 in your wallet, you can simply enjoy a plate🍽 of Soya Sauce Chicken Rice at @liaofanhawkerchan’s Michelin-Awarded stall in Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre. Brace💪 yourself for a 45mins - 1hour long queue, even during weekday lunch hours. Even though there is an air-conditioned (franchised) outlet just across👣 Smith Street with no visible queue, I will still recommend going to the original hawker stall instead😉.

👉Soya Sauce Chicken (Half) - SGD8
👉Char Siew & Roasted Pork Platter - SGD7

To avoid any disappointment😌, make sure you order either their half or full Soya Sauce Chicken to share. Meaning if possible, try not to order individual portions as the chopped up chicken meat might become dry due to being left exposed to open-air.

P.S. I was eating this even before they got their Michelin Star in 2016 liao lor...

REMARKS:

I have always wanted to try the fried chicken wings from this stall after seeing so many good reviews and I wasn’t disappointed when I finally tried it!

There was a long queue on the night of my visit and I waited around 20 mins for my food and I must say it was well worth the wait! The fried chicken was delicious with crispy skin and juicy meat, while the rice was really fragrant! The chilli sauce was solid too, goes so well with the savoury taste of the fried chicken batter! They sell the fried chicken wings individually too at $1.40 per piece.
