    Fu Le Restaurant: Singapore Style Hainanese Chicken Rice

    by xuessium Updated Apr 4, 2011

    HainaneseChickenRice

    Well, even the Hainanese themselves contend the mutated version is much better. This is a chain that was set up to sell Singapore style Hainanese Chicken Rice - the chip off the old block. The original version....well, I will just say, it's not comparable.

    But even that, there are differences. The chicken used remains as tough (skin-wise) and instead of light vegetables, pumpkin soup (Chinese style of course) was served along with Chinese tea. It was like a crossroad between the 2 versions.

    Try it at your risk. It's not real Hainanese Chicken Rice (since they serve it with rice that was cooked in chicken oil and broth like in Singapore, and not plain white rice) but it's not truly Singapore style either.

    Favorite Dish: The Chicken Rice of course....

    Freshness: 10/10
    Taste: 10/10
    Ambiance: 3/10. It's basically an outdoor seafood market next to a bunch of mini outdoor cook stalls.

    Basically, a great place to eat. How to do it?
    1. Go to the seafood market vendors and buy your seafood.
    2. Go to any of the tables (each has their own chef) and give the seafood to the owner/cook there. Cooking fee is normally charged by the pound.

    Tip: You're getting ripped off (trust me, they'll try) if you think you're paying too much. What's too much? My mother and I ordered 1 beer, crab, fish, sea snails, shrimp, two small appetizers and payed less than $15/person for all the food + cooking fee.

    Favorite Dish: Everything we had there was great.

    Daily Coffee aka Tian Tian Cafe: Western food in Eastern China

    by xuessium Written Aug 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was the restaurant in my hotel in Haikou (Huaqiao Dasha). I was clamouring for coffee after several days of tea (this is China afterall, folks) and I found it here. The coffee is not too bad (afterall, Hainan is the first place in China to be exposed to western food and coffee is no exception) and I actually had western breakfast (eggs, toasts, bacon etc) in China! I just want to try it for the fun of it. Not too disappointing and the service aren't bad and the price reasonable.

    There is a line of seafood restaurants and stalls fronting Dadonghai Beach, popular with tourists for a night out under the stars, serenaded by the songs of the sea and tucking into delicious seafood galore. There are many stalls to choose from so pick the one you fancy.

    Of Hot Pots and Sichuan Cuisines

    by xuessium Written Feb 26, 2005

    SichuanDandanmian

    You can find this everywhere in Hainan. For a province so southern, like my home country at the equator, there is a perverse fondness to sweat it out over a steaming hot pot or tucking into spicy Sichuan cuisine. Give them a try if you are keen.

    Favorite Dish: No special recommendations. Just follow your gut!
