Got a 1 star of Michelin Award in 2016 will make us still remember about how a Hawker could get a Michelin Star Award? Sounds impossible right? Yes, me too. But how about if you try by yourself about the Chef Chan stall? Well, His Chicken Rice is awesome, when you step your foot on Chinatown Complex, you will see a long human line waiting for some food. Full of mystery.
(back in January 2017) I was walking pass through the line I saw a lot of chickens on his stall, questioning myself like “what?”. Then I go back to the last line, and start to wait to the line. I thought 20-30mins will answer my question. But unfortunately I was wait about 1 hour and more. After my line, with smile and polite Chef will ask you what you want to eat? Then I just answer him, 6 Chicken rice (for 1 plate of chicken rice is just S$2.5) 4 for eat here and 2 for take away, and he just respond me, “wait a minute”. After the food coming, I feel little bit disappointed, not because of the food, but why I ordered 6 Chicken Rice. And who gonna eat them all?
Well no going back and no regret! Start to get the rice with the spoon, and get into my mouth. All my thought just the rice not to swollen, not too hard but it’s so perfect. Put soya sauce on the pork and rice, and Boom, I’m in love with his Chicken Rice. The pork is crispy, with the perfect cooked rice and the fragrant is very-very strong. When the first until third plates, I can’t stop eating and want it more and more. Honestly Chef Chan food still the best for me.

Sin Kee Famous Cantonese Chicken Rice (Holland Drive)
Sin Kee Famous Cantonese Chicken Rice is the second option that you can try, the Quarter Chicken (for S$8) (Pek Cam Kee) was horrifying, not sure their signature is that or not. But their Chicken mixed with Chicken rice is a good Combination, feels like their foods are easy to accepting by our mouth. Sweet and tasty is the first impression. They do not have any special recipe, how could they create the White Chicken and Hainanese Rice are so awesome. For the price you do not have to worry, at least you need to prepare between S$5 until S$15 if you brought your girl friend. About S$15 – S$25 if you 4-5 people’s.
I always ask an extra soy sauce, since their soy sauce is sweet and very suit with the Chicken Rice (well most of chicken rice does serve a soy sauce) but sometime you will got nothing If the hawker already put the soy sauce into the Chicken Rice.
Sad, if you unlucky, you will got nothing (sometime and happened to me twice) when they were closed earlier because they have nothing anymore to served before they close time.

Havelock Hainanese Curry Rice (Sims Vista Market & Food Centre)
Havelock Hainanese’s Curry is a hawker that run by lovely couple for a half centuries. Most like a Hainanese Curry Rice, Their foods are quite unique and different from most of “Curry Chicken” This is the only curry I can not say it is the curry, because of its transparency and overall taste. It just looks like a thick yellow sauce that does not taste or smells like curry. However, when you mix it with, it feels like an interesting mix of 'Curries'. The pork chop is also of a thin crunchy type that resembles pork chips - it tastes like ba hu / pork string.
The prices are variation, you can start from S$5-S$20, Not a bad dish at all since some of the foods are quite authentic. Most of people order a curry sotong and char siew. The lor bak is good but still loses out to some Hawker Stall (Can’t tell you the name) in some ways. Pork chop is a world class food though it's just lard you're chewing. So I can recommend you for you who looking for an authenticated foods.

Bugis Street Chuen Chuen Chicken Rice (Balestier Market)
Food was fantastic! Went there with a Friend and we had a blast, This unassuming chicken rice stall is one of the most popular stalls at Balestier Food Market. The chicken rice (S$4.50) here offers a quick and affordable form of comfort food, soothing our frazzled nerves whenever we have a long day at the office.
While the rice is firm and not to oily, it lacks the fragrant aroma from the chicken fats that really gives chicken rice the additional oomph! The chicken is not as tender as the other three places on our list, but it is well marinated and has a good flavour. What makes this Chicken Rice stall a competitor is actually chili sauce, which has a nice garlic taste, fresh of lime juice, and a spicy kick from finely ground chilies.
Quick service. And clean nice place. It will be so busy during the lunch time and dinner. So take your meal time a bit late , so it won't be so busy. Then you can enjoy your food well. Otherwise you need to make a line to wait for having a sit Looking forward to visiting again!

Master Chicken (Kim Keat Palm Market & Food Centre)
The Chicken Rice from Master Chicken is one of the better ones I have ever tasted anywhere. It's aromatic, flavour, not too oily and the rice is very well cooked and soft enough.The chili sauce and ginger are watery but they pack a nice enough taste. I do not use a lot of sauce at this time because I always look for stalls that serve chicken that is quite natural by itself
I can't said Master Chicken is the best one, but their foods are very interesting to try. I tried because they call themselves as a master. so we tried and for the result is 7.5/10. The prices are cheap enough and you will thought it was cheap and affordable.
