Singapore: Chin Chin Eating House

One requirement of visiting Singapore is eating Hainanese chicken rice.

CK and I checked chicken rice off our list at Chin Chin Eating House:

A lot of people had the same idea:

When traveling in SE Asia, it's wise to set aside a cold beverage budget.  It's that vital.  I think I buy more drinks in Asia than I do meals.

Anyway, the first thing I did at Chin Chin was browse through the drink menu.  I went with a limeade:

No sour plums in sight.  Score!

Our Hainanese chicken rice was delicious, but not exactly life-changing:

Even more disappointing was the wet noodles we ordered:

For something so saucy, it was kinda bland.

What saved the day was CK's insistence on ordering a veggie dish:

I don't remember what kind of veggie it was, but it was super fresh, perfectly seasoned, and totally yummy.  Even for a meat-eater like myself.

Chin Chin, it was fun, but I probably won't be back.
