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.
