What does Seetoh mean when he says, “You can taste the humility!” in the making of his favourite chicken rice? Why does this humble little stand-alone mom & pop stall trump your usual Boon Tong Kees, 5 Stars, Loy Kees, Tian Tians, Pow Sings, Wee Nam Kees, etc?
To quote the Makansutra,
These Hokkien folks are proof that you don’t need to be a Hainanese to make good Hainanese chicken rice. The fluffy rice has a light smokiness and mouthwatering aroma of fried ginger and garlic… The chicken is plump and the meat is juicy, with a thin layer of jellied juice under the skin… They do not drench the chicken with excessive sauce, just a little soy sauce and sesame oil seasoning.
Ultimately, it’s all in the tasting, so go try out:
