Tiong Bahru Boneless Hainanese Chicken Rice in Changi Village

Interesting name for a shop which is in Changi Village. I don't quite know the origins of the shop, but I would imagine it was in Tiong Bahru at one time in history.

But all the historical aspects is useless if the chicken rice is not good. And as they say, for a good chicken rice, the rice, the chilli and the chicken must pass that order.

And this chicken rice meets all the criteria, with room to spare. The rice is beautifully fragrant, not greasy, but fragrant infused with chicken fat...not too starchy, nice and chewy as I like it...a bit on the al dente side. 

The chilli is marvellous. That's why I have surrounded the plate with a moat of chilli. Piquant, slightly sour, slightly salty, very spicy. Magnificent.

And the chicken is also beautiful. This single plate version with skinless breast meat...sometimes breast meat can be a bit tough and dry. But not this one...moist, very nice. Fragrant, savoury. 

Excellent plus plus. Highly recommended.
