AS OF JULY 2, 2012, IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT SING HAINANESE CHICKEN HOUSE IN SHANGRI-LA MALL IS ALREADY CLOSED.  PLEASE CHECK THEIR NEW LOCATION AT THE PODIUM MALL.

I like to try different kinds of food.  I find the different colors and flavors interesting.  I once heard someone call another person boring because she kept ordering Hainanese chicken rice.  It kind of stuck so given a choice between that and a burger, the burger will always win.

So when I was part of a group craving for some Hainanese chicken, I felt it only right that I should finally try it before judging it.  Nevertheless, I still ordered the roasted version and just picked on the other’s orders to disprove my pre-conceived notion.

1. I like warm meals and this was cold chicken and cabbage.  Granted, let’s say it’s really served cold but, even the roasted one?  (Why roast it?)  I had my order reheated and afterwards, I was happy.  I loved the rice.

2. I am not a fan of ginger and sweet sauces on my meat.  The spicy, kimchi-like sauce was the only one I was able to use and I only needed a dab of it to get the spiciness.

3. Sorry, no beer here.

4. But I can’t argue that it’s value for money.

There we have it.  I gave it a try but, sorry.  I’m really not the right customer for this dish.  I must be in a very small minority though, because, judging from the jam-packed restaurant (which only opened Jan. 6 of this year), it’s a hit. Good for them.

Now, where’s that burger?

Sing Hainanese Chicken House is located on The Ledge of the Shangri-La mall in EDSA. It’s the one beside Sango (burger!! :P).

    “In Hainanese chicken rice, the chicken is usually served cold, with all its bones removed. That is the style in which Hainanese chicken rice is served, boneless. This is to be eaten with the hot oily flavored rice. The chicken broth is also to be served at this point as well as part of the meal. The chili sauce is to be served as a dipping sauce. Typically most people will dip the chicken meat into the chili sauce first and then the ginger puree and then the dark soy sauce and this is followed by a spoonful of rice.”

    Still, I do kinda prefer it a bit warm.
