- Hainanese DelicacyMember ofLocal CultureOutdoor EnthusiastsBudget Travelers+ 5First to ReviewJul 04, 2012
The best chicken rice in Singapore! Hainanese Delicacy is on the top floor of Far East Plaza off of Orchard Road, hidden amongst a random assortment of hair salons and somewhat grungy older restaurants and food stalls. This place is classic old school Asia- fluorescent lighting, cramped seating area where you share tables with strangers, and curt waitstaff. A friend of my cousin recommended this restaurant, otherwise I never would've made my way up here...but I'm glad I did.
The chicken is melt-in-your-mouth delicious, the rice full of oily flavor, and perfect with thick soy sauce and chili as condiments. We ordered a side of pea sprouts and these were great too. You have the option of getting steamed or roasted, but steamed is traditional, so I always go with that.
So good I could've easily eaten two dishes of chicken. This really is the best SGD $4 I've spent on my trip.
