  2. Is that you, the host in the video clip? Pweeet!!! LOL!!! Hainanese food, I only know chicken rice but I hear it's only in Singapore and here, not originally from Hainan, China.

    1. Yep, that's me. :-) I'm relatively new to Hainanese food too - I'm hooked on those fat spring rolls now though.

  3. heheh, that's so cute, a chef who never cooks at home! i'd definitely like to visit his cafe someday, especially since he serves chinese hainanese food (my mom's side of the family is hainanese) :D

    1. I wonder how Hainanese cuisine has changed over time. It was interesting listening to the chef's account of how it developed over time in Penang. Lots of Western influence on the island apparently as many people from Hainan often worked as chefs for the Brits back in colonial times.

    1. I've heard incredible things about chicken rice in Singapore - also incredible things about the prices too! - Supposedly one of THE best can be found on Orchard Road for $40 Sing dollars!
