Oh so delish…Hainanese chicken rice

Dear Chibi,

Over the last couple of months, I discovered the amazingness of Hainanese chicken rice :O I mean, it’s not like I never knew this dish existed… I just never gave it much thought, you know?

It kind of all started with this meal at David’s Kitchen back in September last year. Not the rice variety, since I felt like having noodle soup.

I was surprised by how tasty this was! The chicken is just so juicy and tender. Then again, Hubby knows I’m a bit obsessed with plain o’ Soy Chicken Noodle Soup, so I guess this shouldn’t be too out of the ordinary?

In November, I decided to try it at another restaurant just to compare. This was from a Malaysian restaurant opposite Market City. Again, very yummy… but portion size was disappointing. This didn’t fill me up at all (and cost more) XD. More quantity please.

I’m not sure if the above is considered Hainanese Chicken since this is a Vietnamese eatery, but it sounded kinda similar XD Portion size was decent, but I prefer actual Hainanese Chicken. I’m still thinking about the one I had from David’s Kitchen….

YES. BACK HERE AGAIN! But with the actual rice variety. I didn’t realise that the rice was infused with the chicken flavour which is why it tasted so damn good. I’ve come back here several times and the quality & size is always consistent. I’m always one happy customer :D

Most recently, I ordered the above from a Malaysian stall in Spice Alley during a catch up with Sarah. I quite enjoyed it and the sauce is slightly different (I think it’s a sweet soy sauce?) I would have liked more salads and more soup. I didn’t like that they only accepted card payment and it had a surcharge :P Value wise, David’s Kitchen still wins. XD

I wonder when I’ll finally get bored of this dish? ehehehee.
