2. Chicken Rice
A little knowledge
A common dish in Singapore is by no doubt the Hainanese chicken rice. It was invented by the immigrants from Hainan in China and this dish is a hit in Singapore.
Hainanese chicken rice consists of rice cooked in chicken stock (sometimes called "oily rice,") served with either steamed or roast chicken. The remaining chicken stock not used to cook the rice is often used to make soup. This makes the soup appetizing. Serving is usually rice and chicken served with sliced cucumber, pounded ginger, and a tangy chilli sauce mixed with garlic.
