Hollywood star Kristen Stewart ate chicken rice and loved it.
The Twilight star was curious about how the local favourite tasted.
So managing and artistic director at the Jean Yip Group Mervin Wee bought her a packet.
"She loved it," chilli and all, he said.
Kristen had her hair cut at a private room at the Jean Yip Loft at Chinatown for her role in sci-fi Hollywood film Equals.
The movie being shot here is set in a utopian society where emotions like love and hate do not exist.
Co-star Nicholas Hoult had his hair done at the one-north MRT Station while the 107 other cast members had theirs at the Infinite Studios at Portsdown Road over five consecutive days.
Mr Wee, husband of Jean Yip from Jean Yip Group, personally attended to Stewart and Hoult.
Mr Wee said he and Stewart chatted about Singapore's local cuisine and she mentioned chicken rice. "Of course, then, as a Singaporean, I had to be a good host and so I bought her a packet from Tian Tian chicken rice from the nearby Maxwell Food Centre market.
"Kristen did not finish the packet, but she said the rice was very flavourful and the chilli was delicious. She had a can of Coke to accompany her meal."
Mr Wee said Stewart came with a short bob with a dark blonde colour.
He said: "But I was tasked to taper her hair and dye it medium ash blonde."
