    I am super passionate about Hainan Chicken! Tried many versions and this joint looks awesome. The spicy chili sauce must be powerful! Sometimes I make Hainan chicken rice at home, it's actually quite easy. I made a video about this. Thanks for the inspiration :)

    You should try Thai style chicken and rice, it widely available everywhere in Thailand. You don’t even have to make up your own sauce like that but the freshly prepared sauce made by restaurant should be the best and I mean the best.

    Hainan (AKA Hawaii in China) is the island 1 hour south east from Hong kong. That is where the Le people make the Hainanese chicken. Can you do a video there in Hainan island? 1 major city I went there is called Sanya City. south in the hainan island. Haikou is the city up north. Go during the ms. universe contest. You 'll see all the beautiful ladies there plus hunt for your hainan chicken restuant. Over there you will discover giant red coconut trees and coconut trees in the jungles. And all the glorious tropical fruits. And yes, local seafood night market eating place. The prices is dirt cheap. The landmark of that seafood place is one block on the main street by Le parker hotel. I do not have a recommended place for the hainan chicken resturant. Ask around or go to the local district. I do see the pull fresh noodle local shops there. You can check Sanya city videos on youtube, see what people say or recommend. You have to check the weather before you go. They have unexpected tropical storm there.

    Most Singapore dishes originate from Malaysia including Hainanese Chicken Rice. And Malaysian versions are more authentic and their preparations start from scratch not from pre packed spices. You must visit Malaysian world renown street food meccas Penang, Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, Malacca etc.

    I've been to that restaurant! And my wife, who is from Thailand, told me that it's run by thai-chinese people, in other words, Thai people who trace their roots from China. And I believe it's a dish that's also very popular in Thailand.

    This resembles Hainanese Chicken Rice at best. Please make an effort to try the real stuff in Singapore and/or Malaysia. There's a slight difference in both countries' styles, but I guarantee it to look AND taste better than what you're having. Soup included.

    Cucumber is a fruit, of the vine but is classified as a vegetable. like tomatoes are fruits and have been classified as vegetables is because of taxes. The import duty and taxes on vegetables is higher than the taxes on fruit. Botanically and scientifically cucumbers are fruits.

      'was part of' is the key point here...therefore, it's not vietnamese... not anymore. the ownership belongs to the hainanese people in China (thus china owns it) and Singaporeans (who have their own altered version - strictly chicken and influenced a little bit by cantonese style) because of their hainanese heritage due to immigration during british colonial in temasik (now singapore). learn emily, learn...
