A Singaporean favourite, Hainanese chicken is something you should definitely try out if you haven’t so far. While you’ll find it in many Chinese restaurants, we recommend ordering it from Mimi as its chefs have recently added a healthy twist to the dish and refined its look. They make Hainanese Black Chicken Rice. The dish is made with arborio rice, which is healthier and is made with a few drops of squid ink giving it an intriguing black look. Paired with a black chicken, again healthier than regular chicken, the dish is paired with their home-made chilli making it oh so tasty.
