Ah Tai Hainanese Chicken Rice 1 Kadayanallur St #01-07, Maxwell Food Ctr (Map) 10am – 8pm Tue
Ah Tai is the former head chef of his old boss (now competitor just meters away) at Tian Tian Chicken Rice. His poached-and-ice-cooled chicken is very soft and smooth and the rice is flavourful yet not too oily. He was the chef that cooked for and made the late Anthony Bourdain go "wow' upon his first bite of chicken rice over a decade ago, when he was still heading Tian Tian. His chilli, although looking a little pale, is bold and has enough of a limey, garlicky and spicy kick. That blended and braised soy sauce he spoons over the chicken gives the smooth chicken pieces a lift. His prices are a few notches south of his ex-boss's nearby.
