Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice @ Joo Chiat Road

IMG_5881ed

In my previous post, we went to Toh Thye San Farm to source for our Anxin chicken for the Ultimate Hawker Fest 2014. After a week or two after our trip to the farm, we gathered again at Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice at Joo Chiat to put the chicken in to a taste test.

The first thing that we noticed about the Anxin Chicken is that the size seems bigger than the commercial broiler even though it is slightly lighter in weight. Kenny the 3rd generation from Toh Thye San Farm explained by using a simple illustration of a rugby ball and a football ball even though the weight is the same, the Anxin Chicken looks bigger in size.

We started with the Anxin Chicken, texture wise I thought it is comparable to the normal commercial broiler, probably just a little bit firmer. However what stood out is the sweetness of the meat even without any sauce. We also chopped a plate of the normal commercial broiler to try. It tasted bland almost tasteless compared to Anxin chicken. That is how great the difference are. I realized maybe for that reason, nowadays chicken rice stall likes to drench their poached chicken with a sauce to lift the flavour.

Mentioned Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice and the first thing that came to our mind probably is the stall at Maxwell Food Centre. Actually Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice has expanded with a couple of stalls around the island. The outlet at Joo Chiat is a full fledged restaurant servicing many delectable cooked dishes on top of the popular Hainanese chicken rice. It is perfect for family lunch or dinner with its variety of dishes.

Due to the high cost of Anxin chicken, it is not sold at any of the Tian Tian chicken rice stalls. So if you want to have a taste of this beautiful poultry, make your way down to Ultimate Hawker Fest 2014 on 22 November 2014 from 11am to 5pm at Suntec Convention and Exhibition Hall 401 & 402.

You maybe wondering what is so special about these chicken? To know the answer, we have to make a trip down to Simpang Renggam Johor Bahru in Malaysia to visit Toh Thye San Farm that is breeding these special Anxin chicken and supplying it to Tian Tian Chicken Rice for the Ultimate Hawker Fest 2014.

Commercial broiler chicken are usually breed for around 28-30 days before being slaughtered and served on the table. Unlike the commercial broiler, Anxin chicken came all the way from France. The chicken is breed in a free roaming environment and corn fed for 100 days.

This is the batch of Anxin chicken that Tian Tian Chicken Rice will be using for the Ultimate Hawker Fest.These beautiful birds actually have a common characteristic. Their neck are featherless hence they are also known as Naked Neck Chicken.
