Eager to experience both varieties of chicken, we opted for both the Hainanese-style poached chicken and the roast chicken, served in halved portions. The chicken was drizzled in a soy sauce blend with green onion as garnish. The fragrant, well-separated rice was just right in terms of oiliness. While the chicken was mostly tender and flavorful, some parts were not as tender. In my opinion, the chili lacked spiciness but offered a delightful sweetness and garlicky undertones, making it the perfect accompaniment to my meal.
