Rating: Decent curry
Occasionally those of us Hedonists who are really serious about our Chinese food do a food crawl of some sort. Today’s was 5 stops, all for Hainan Chicken Rice. This is a traditional dish of Hainan Provence in southern China and is one of the national dishes of Singapore. Poached at low temp with garlic and ginger. The broth is supposed to be used to cook the rice. It is served with a variety of sauces.
“famous” beef curry. It wasn’t bad. Typical Indonesian brown curry with potatoes and beef. Here is a closer aproximation of the garlic rice.
This was my least favorite place, or at least my least favorite Hainan Chicken. The menu was really odd, Hong Kong cafe style in that it has curry, chicken, lots of sloppy looking weird pasta, and pizza! Woah.
