The black vinegar is more sweet than sour but there is a bottle of vinegar on the counter for customers to help themselves to for a sharper taste.
The food area is huge! It was rows after rows of food stalls
Chinatown Complex Food Centre located at Block 335 Smith Street is the largest hawker centre in Singapore with over 260 food stalls, also boosting the world’s first Michelin hawker stall.
The local hawker scene was once unpopular among the millennial crowd with the cafe trend kicking in years back. However, traditional local food can only be found hidden in hawker centres, leading to the surge in hawkers’ popularity as millennials look for a dish that gives them a blast from the past.
It looks like this stall (335 Smith Street #02-84) has been listed in the Michelin guide for a while, but somehow it just never registered on my radar screen until recently.

Ma Li Ya Virgin Chicken at Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre needs no further introduction but, unless you have eaten it before, you would never have guessed that what I had here is a plate of chicken rice because frankly, it does not even remotely resemble one.
The black vinegar is more sweet than sour but there is a bottle of vinegar on the counter for customers to help themselves to for a sharper taste. Chef Sham uses the Chan Kong Thye (aka doggy brand) black sweet rice vinegar which he proudly displays all over his stall.
Claypot & Cooked Food Kitchen at Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre specializes in Cantonese-style tze char. The modest menu included their signature claypot pig's liver, har cheong gai, sweet & sour pork, salted fish minced chicken tofu pot, tofu & roasted meat among others.
Yuan Lang Soy Chicken Master is the underdog among all the big names. Hopefully, they can get picked up by the radar soon and receive the recognition they deserve.
An elderly couple runs this stall and offers affordable traditional Cantonese dishes. If you are seated extremely close to their stall, they will be able to serve your food to your table; otherwise, self-service is available.
