Was in search of a place for lunch after a game of tennis. The bus my boyfriend and I were taking passed by this row of shophouses along Simpang Bedok at Jalan Pari Burong. When I saw the bright blue signboard, it immediately caught my attention.

I was in disbelief at first. Could it really be the same Tien Tien as our favorite Tien Tien Hainanese Chicken Rice stall from Maxwell Food Centre? The signboard looked exactly alike!

We alighted at the bus stop just opposite the row of shophouses and headed to check it out.

The famous restaurant was humbly nestled along the skirts of this peaceful housing estate. The ambience is perfect for one of those lazy, laid-back weekend lunches.

We ordered the white steamed chicken with a side of chicken gizzards and a plate of beansprouts.

The chicken, as usual, was tender and very flavorful. The meat was soft and juicy and the chicken skin was melt-in-your-mouth.

The rice did not meet the usual Maxwell Food Centre standard. The texture was nothing impressive and taste wise, it proved a disappointment. My first mouthful and I turned to my boyfriend saying, "it tastes like the chicken rice I cook at home." I expected more from them.

The beansprouts tasted pretty good. However, I would have enjoyed it more if it weren't so oily. I felt it was a tad bit too oily for my liking. But other than that, it was soft yet slightly crunchy and i enjoyed it
