Food and drink
This is Singapore’s most iconic hawker stall dish - Hainanese chicken rice - cooked to perfection. The rice is fragrant and fluffy, while the chicken is succulent and tender, matched with chili sauce with a hint of lime.
The Maxwell Food Centre is a rough and ready hawker cenre with no air-conditioning. It’s noisy and hot, but that’s part of its rustic charm.
There’s an efficient production line of staff ready to heap rice and then chicken on your plate during the busiest times of the day. So if you ever have to queue, there’s never that long a wait.
Maxwell Food Cenre is near Chinatown and a short walk from Tajong Pagar MRT station in the CBD.
This is as cheap as it gets in Singapore. A small plate of chicken rice is just $3.50.
There's now a Tian Tian Chicken Rice restaurant in Joo Chiat.
