    Greetings Mike,
    You’re lucky to have sampled the deep fried bananas at Maxwell hawker centre back in 2017. He retired a year later and his stall is just a memory. He’s been using only one type of banana and it’s local name translate into King Banana.
    The Chicken Rice. Lots of good ones out there in Singapore, but to me, the best ones are when the chef skillfully de-bone the thigh before sectioning it into delicate bite size. When you’ve had both kinds you’ll know what I mean👍🏼👍🏼😋......great video

    You are really supposed to pour some of the grated ginger, chili sauce & some dark sweet soya sauce over the rice & chicken.

    Not the best should try Swee Kee chicken rice. BTW I am Singaporean. It may cost a little more expensive but worth the taste.

    We have eaten the Chicken Rice at the same place last year but due to the popularity of it the quality has gone down the drain. Chicken and rice were dry and less tastefull.

    The uncle that sell banana like “dude, it's just a banana”. But i understand mike, i also fried banana maniac. In indonesia there's a variation of fried banana called pisang molen, also the bomb. Maybe singapore and malaysia have one too. South east asian food always similar.

    Hi Mike, I know this video has been posted a while back, but if do you ever come to LA, do please give Side Chick a try for some great chicken. It's over down at the Santa Anita Mall in Arcadia, and though the place is small, their Hainan Chicken is really good. The chicken is tender, and their garlic rice is the bomb. But you would have to try their roast chicken. The name is so understated compared to its chicken and taste. Just close your eyes and imagine the flavor of a tasty Chinese BBQ roast duck with crispy skin. Now imagine a tender piece of chicken leg with all the same treatment in crispiness and flavor on it as the said roast duck. The results are amazing and pretty darn delicious.
    Not saying it's better than what you got there in Singapore, but boy are they good.

    The deep fried banana is indegenous to south India, the state of Kerala. They call it Pazhampuri and it’s made with Nendram Banana Which is exclusive to Kerala. Tamil Nadu also makes this and it’s called Bajji.

    I came for Tian2 chicken rice 3 times recently in August18,queue was 60 strong but well worth it YUM!Looking around, I felt the design for these centre is bad,the tropical heat are being recycled by the ceiling fans,heat rises but are trapped in here as there is no escape outlets to releases the hot air thus allowing fresh clean cooler air into the centres,toilets too had the same problem without adequate ventilation air flow,wet floors.

    First I thought white people eat rice with fork, now I see this anglicised Asian eating rice with a fork. It's like, we kinda think that the westerners invented the spoon, but they are making their lives to difficult by eating rice with a fork. And then came the spork which loves to poke you for drinking soup.

    Popiah is a fresh spring roll. It's a little bland but I normally eat it with a very spicy/fatty main dish so it kinda balances out the main dish nicely.
