I prefer the rice at New Lucky Claypot Rice at Holland Drive (fragrant and intensely flavourful), but the one here is also delish. Aircon is a major plus. More food choices too. The tofu skin roll and the chilli lala are pretty good. Portions are generous, and prices are reasonable.

While at Wisma Atria: Burger+ or Omakase Burger? The burgers at Oma are slightly better; the sides are same same (fries are not that crunchy); Burger+ has a much longer menu (including yummy but numbingly-spicy Yangnyeom Korean chicken, bulgogi hot dogs, etc); service is significantly better at Burger+; and prices are slightly lower at Burger+. If you’re really particular about your burgers, you might sneak in a takeaway Oma burger and eat at Burger+, otherwise just go to Burger+ lah. They could have catered to the US and North Korean delegations to the Trump-Kim summit in Sentosa!

Too many items on the menu come at a price: the bak kut teh just isn’t very good. The so-called chicken rice which costs $1 per bowl has no flavour of chicken. No free water. Wonder if many customers come here to play e-dart. You won’t go over the moon even if you’re spoon-fed BKT by Mr. Koon!

Why do people stand in line for, sometimes 30’, to eat here, when Legendary Bak Kut Teh just a block away, is empty? The ribs and pork intestines are indeed very good, but the main reason is some clever deal with travel agents, that send tourists here by the bus loads.

The owner of this stall used to work st the famous Tian Tian a few counters away. Today, the queue at Tian Tian lasts anywhere between 10 minutes (at opening at 10am, or mid afternoon) and 45 minutes (meal times); its prices are the highest among all the Hainanese chicken rice stalls at Maxwell (although that’s still most reasonable); they only give out the chilli and dark soy sauces upon request (although that is very much part of the dish!). There is never a queue at Ah Tai. So, is it worth it? If you’re not a foodie, the answer is “hell, no!”’On the other hand, if you can tell subtle differences in the texture of the chicken, the fragrance of the rice, or the degree of kick in the chilli sauce, or if you just line up servings from the various chicken rice stalls at Maxwell (Tian Tian, Ah Tai, Heng Heng), you would have to say "Tian Tian is the best lah!" Unfortunately, Ah Tai would come third, although on its own, it is not bad.

The only open at 11am (or even noon) and close relatively early at 7pm, but they serve the most unusual and probably yummiest handmade ngoh hiang in Singapore.

Years ago, you could call in advance to order your chicken rice, it would wait for you by the time you reach the (now closed) car park. Forget that now, and be prepared to queue. It’s pretty efficient, but still takes anywhere between 10 minutes (at opening at 10am, or mid afternoon) and 45 minutes (meal times). The prices are the highest among all the Hainanese chicken rice stalls at Maxwell; they only give out the chilli and dark soy sauces upon request (although that is very much part of the dish!).

This dish is so delish and so hard to find these days, so it’s surprising that the queues at this stall are quite short. One of my favs at Maxwell Food Centre. Eat this delicacy - crisp outside and moist inside - with chilli and beer, and you wonder why you’d ever bother about other fried food (except for tempura, of course).

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
