One of those days I buy something not knowing the mastery I've encountered. This soy sauce chicken was generous and very good, especially considering it's metres away from a Michelin-starred version. The real game changer though was the tofu. Yes, that big black ball. You've never eaten tofu this soft and smooth.


Mark this stall in Chinatown Complex Market and Food Centre for lunch with your colleagues— it's a fantastic alternative to the famed Michelin-starred stall (plus points for a way shorter queue). Order their Signature Half Chicken ($7) that sees a generous portion of moist breast meat soaked in a well-balanced, savoury dark soy sauce. If you're there early enough, don't hesitate to snag the popular homemade Braised Tofu ($1.40 per piece) bathed in the same luxurious sweet-salty sauce.

Located in the same compound, skip the michelin-starred Hawker Chan's absurd queue for this super value $7 half chicken. The tender meat with silky skin well glazed in the aromatic and flavoursome sauce makes it as good as any chicken.

The generous portion of meat was tender, and the sauce is a perfect balance of salty and sweet with herbal undertones. Some parts of the chicken are a bit dry (breast meat) but that’s a minor point. The star of this hawker stall is definitely the #braisedtofu that’s silky smooth while remaining firm, and has soaked up the sweet sauce to make it highly delicious

My go-to for soy sauce chicken in Chinatown; silky smooth and oh-so-tender. Even the breast meat is ridiculously soft and moist, you wonder how they achieve these results without fancy gadgets. Other than the chicken, be sure to grab some of their braised homemade tofu! It’s amazingly smooth and a perfect vehicle for their light, savoury braising liquid. Aunty will often joke, “Maria Virgin’s tofu is the best!” 🙃


This stall has a weird name of Maria Virgin Chicken, but the true delicious stuff was the silky braised tofu.
Apparently, according to an auntie whom I spoke to at Chinatown Food Centre, this is the “sifu” (teacher) of the Michelin starred stall.
Let me know if there are other worthy HK Soya Chicken around #Sghawker
