Top 10 Hainanese Chicken Rice in Manila

"So good lah!" We list the 10 best places to sample the iconic dish that has come to be known as a Singaporean staple.

It’s amazing how the Singaporeans were able to transform a recipe for poached chicken into one of their nation's most recognized cultural icons. By adding three kinds of sauce, a bowl of stock-flavored rice, and a bowl of clear chicken broth, this dish has easily become a favorite for many around the world, including Filipinos. Thankfully it is now widely available, not only in Singaporean and Malaysian restaurants, but in various cafes and restaurants across the metro.

Given the simple recipe, one might wonder, are all Hainanese chicken rice created alike? After trying out 16 different versions in the city, we have come to the conclusion that not all versions of Hainanese chicken rice are created equally. Depending on factors like the quality of ingredients, cooking methodology, recipe interpretation and value for money, the quality and taste of this Singaporean staple varies. See which restaurants had us saying "so tasty-lah!"
