Tips for you
“U.S. mall food courts wish they could be like this!” Anthony Bourdain ate here in the Singapore episode of "No Reservations", and he sampled Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice, as did I, and I enjoyed it immensely. It is a flavorful combination of boiled spring chicken and white rice, with various dipping sauces available. There are many other stalls here serving Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, and other Southeast Asian cuisines, plus I had the chance to drink a kiwi/ dragonfruit juice combo, which was a great thirst quencher given the tropical climate! U.S. mall food courts pale in comparison to the Singaporean hawker centres, they are too bland and one-dimensional. There's not many places in this world where you can get a satisfying meal for under $10 USD, and even the food courts in Stateside malls charge more than that and don't give you the variety that a hawker centre does. Hawker centres are a must visit when you come to Singapore!
The place is spacious. Very crowded everyday. Not easy to find an unoccupied seat although hundreds are available here.
