Hainan Chicken, Glen Waverley MELB

Smacked right in the middle of Kingsway aka foodie lane of Glen Waverley, Hainan Chicken has a lot of pressure riding on its back. Firstly, this area alone is packed full of delicious food options to pick from and secondly, to showcase Malaysian food in a suburb already concentrated with Malaysians, one cannot expect to be forgiven for a substandard plate of chicken rice.

This restaurant is in its infancy stages and I am sure staff are working hard at fine tuning a few areas be it in terms of customer service or workflow. However, my main mission for that day was to satisfy my cravings for chicken rice, a dish that resonates about my childhood trips to the market. The market meal for the day? Chicken rice.

Chicken rice ~ yep, this plate of golden skinned chicken that's kept moisturized with a layer of oil was good. Would have liked a slightly bigger serve of this as my plate of chicken had a lot of bones/ parts that did not have much flesh such as the wings.

The rice that comes with it has a lovely perfume and is cooked to perfection aka not too dry or wet.

Bean sprouts ~ a side dish we ordered just because you cannot have chicken rice without this.

Herbal duck soup noodles ~ I am not a big fan of herbal dishes but this one was pretty good. Comes with a good sized piece of duck leg and broth wise, it is heavily infused with Chinese herbs - a good option if you need a pick up when you are feeling under the weather.
