In Singapore, a country where eating can be considered a national pastime, the variety of culinary cuisines offered can be mind boggling and overwhelming for a first time visitor. What’s the difference? What’s good? In this food capital of Asia, you want to save some space in your tummy for the dishes that are worth it. Singapore’s favorite hawker dish, the de facto national dish: Hainanese Chicken Rice. There are different variations of the chicken rice but the Hainanese recipe is the one that has captured the hearts and stomachs of Singaporeans.
This culinary gem originated from the Hainan province in southern China, early Chinese immigrants brought this dish over to Singapore when they came. The concept is simple: pieces of steam white chicken and rice accompanied by condiments of light or dark soy sauce, and a savory ground chilli and ginger paste. Don’t be fooled by its simpleness, a lot of hard work goes into the preparation of this local delicacy. The palatability of the Hainanese chicken rice functions like that of an orchestra, each component must perform or else the dish is mediocre at best. The chicken is prepared using traditional Hainanese methods, the meat is boiled in a pork and chicken bone stock until it is fully cooked. It is then immediately soaked in cold water, this stops the cooking process and the end result, mind blowing juicy and tender chicken.
The Hainanese chicken rice can be found at many hawker centers, food courts, and restaurants all over the city. Don’t know which one is better? Here’s a quick tip. Always head for the one that has the longest line. Singaporeans love their food, especially the chicken rice and they wouldn’t think twice standing in line for long periods just to get their hands on that unbelievably succulent dish. So whether you’re in town for just a few days or longer, go get yourself some Singapore Hainanese chicken rice and be prepared for a transcendental experience.
