Hainanese Chicken Rice

Hainanese Chicken Rice, a very simple dish that stole my heart.

Served mainly in Singapore and Malaysia, this is a local specialty that's attributed to Chinese immigrants from the island of Hainan, off the coast of China. It’s a simple dish of poached chicken served with rice cooked in chicken broth that’s laden with ginger and garlic.

Our Singapore food trip consisted mainly of daily helpings of this dish. . . these two establishments come as highly recommended to locals & tourists alike, hailed as the two best Hainan Chicken Rice in Singapore.
