Hainanese Chicken Rice & Siu Mei
The Hainanese chicken is quite moist and tender. Its chicken skin is really smooth and feels almost like melting in your mouth. Very nice. The roast chicken is a bit drier though but still fairly moist. Its taste is decent and the chicken skin has nice savoury flavours. Between the two types of chicken, the Hainanese chicken is definitely better. The chicken comes with bean sprouts soaked in a soya sauce and oil seasoning. It is crunchy and tastes not too bad.
As for the char siew, it is fairly tender with a very mild sweet taste. Just decent ok. The siu yuk however is much nicer than the char siew. This roast pork is quite tender with a nice crispy skin. It is a bit salty though but still quite nice. For the pork, the siu yuk is definitely the nicer one. The pork dishes comes with a mildly sweet roast sauce which is a rather nice compliment to the pork meat flavours.
The roast sausage is just average. It has a sweet flavour but it isn’t roasted well enough. It would have been much nicer if it is charred with a sticky honey coating outside. This one is skippable.
The rice is fragrant with nice flavours and isn’t oily. The accompanying soup on the side likewise is nicely flavoured and just mildly salty. As for the garlic chilli sauce, it is your usual standard stuff. Overall this is quite a nice meal. I would recommend the Hainanese chicken and roast pork.
