You know you have found Tian Tian at the Maxwell Road Food Center when you see the line of people waiting for tender chicken.
If there is one dish that can be considered the national dish of Singapore, this is it. The chicken is boiled until it is ready to fall off the bone. The water is used for the rice, allowing the rice to soak in the flavor of the chicken.
The condiments are key—each person chooses a personal combination of sweet and spicy to flavor their chicken rice.
A tour of Singapore is just not complete until trying this dish, and Tian Tian is the place to do it.
