Tong Fong Fatt, Maxwell Food Centre

Chicken Rice

I wasn't explicitly trying to get chicken rice today. But a stroll through Maxwell Food Centre brought me to a stall (number 17 with the Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice sign) with an amusing string of carcasses hanging in the glass case that I'd never really seen before, almost like the alien in Predator who proudly displayed his collection of human skulls.

His trophy caseWell, the chicken itself was tender and surprised me with a touch of sesame oil. But the sauce on top was also a tad sweet (and the soup was even sweeter, all the while being a bit on the bland side), thus definitely forcing this one far below its nearby competitor Tian Tian for me.
