From the Burpple community

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

Chicken rice, condiments and soup are blurred out here because the focus is really on the tender chicken slices and crispy tofu. Fried tofu was drizzled with sweet, spicy sauce - thai style. It comes with a small serving of bean sprout for a balanced meal. Pocket friendly meal which satisfy the tummy 🐓

Price: SGD3.00
For the price, I really appreciate that the chicken portion is generous. It has a good mixture of parts so u get some skin, fatty part and the meaty part.

This has a Michelin Bib Gourmand award, but to be honest, I found it quite meh. The rice doesn’t have enough flavour for me and I found the meat to be rather bland. To each their own I guess! I suppose if you’re looking for a healthier, lighter chicken rice, this is it.
