Chin Chin Hainanese Chicken Rice
What do true food bloggers do after the Annual Food Blogger lunch? Why, have more food of course! A small group of us adjourned to Chin Chin's just down the road for some chicken rice. We had both roast and steamed.
Ivan recommended the mutton claypot, which turned out to be my favourite dish of all. It's like a very good stew, and the mutton had no gamey taste at all. I'm coming back for this!
I've also developed a new appreciation for sweet potato leaves, after tasting this sambal rendition.
Nic and I spied Hokkien Mee on the menu, and we could not resist. Alas, it was not the darkly luscious version we sought. Nary a fried pork lard piece in sight too. Oh well. The folly of ordering a Hokkien dish at a Hainanese joint.
But still, good company always overrides the occasional disappointing dish. I hope I won't have to wait til next year before we have more outings like this.
