Right at the west end of Singapore lays an almost hidden small coffee shop which houses a hidden gem that offers fantastic chicken rice which we were introduced. Here is YumzYumz food review of their steamed chicken rice.
Let’s go straight to what’s so special about A & I Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice’s offerings. Their steam chicken comes with a unique sauce, and forgive us if we are so under exposed to the world of glorious food. It tasted with strong hua diao wine (花雕酒) and probably the usual of sesame oil and such. But the main draw was definitely the hua diao wine which emits so strongly, it gives the chicken so much extra dimension, it wins hands down against many other mundane chicken rice stalls that we have tried so far. Chicken was tender and as we always gets the breast meat, as long as it is tender, we can be sure the rest of the chicken would definitely be much better. Chicken skin was almighty silky and soft, marrying well with its delightful flesh.
Rice was fluffy, slightly on the mushy side but still nicely done. Chili sauce was watery but packs a strong punch.
End of it all, it all boils down to their unique hua diao wine sauce on its chicken. So damn awesome.
Each plate of chicken rice cost $3 and even though it is far on the west end of Singapore and within a small coffee shop, be prepared to queue for about 20mins during lunch time as it gets crazily pack.
