Tian Tian vs. Ah-Tai – who crowns King of chicken rice?
Same Same But Different is a new investigative series where we compare and review the same type of dish from different food stalls in the same vicinity to find out which is more worth it.
“Why did the chicken cross the road? Because you didn’t cook it!”
When it comes to chicken rice, us Singaporeans can get as touchy as Gordon Ramsay if it’s not done well. Since Maxwell Food Centre is home to 2 of the “best” chicken rice stalls in Singapore – Tian Tian and Ah Tai – our writers, born and bred in Singapore, embarked on a mission to suss out the cream of the crop. Just whose chicken rice is truly worth our money and stomach space?
