Chicken Rice One of Singapore’s Revered Dishes

IMG_2470

I had a chance last week to spend a few days in Singapore, running around the endless hawker food centers and tasting all manner of laksa, dumplings and ice-bean-corn-condensed milk desserts. But the one that stood out was the chicken rice, a dish as revered as a NYC-style slice or a Montreal poutine. There are chicken rice stalls in every hawker center. In fact, there are several at each one, so choosing where to eat can be frustrating. I called upon my colleagues over there, and had a chance to spend some time at one of the best, where the lines start early and never cease throughout the day. The process is meticulous, and the sauces – duck, garlic-scallion-ginger and fiery chili – are the perfect accompaniments. Here’s a short video I put together showing how Tian Tian makes their version.
