Hainanese Chicken Rice?

I was reading this blog and developed the most unbearable craving for this Singaporean dish.
Anyone know where a good version can be found in LA? Preferably on the westside but I'll drive if I have to. Thanks!
Too bad you just missed Kuala Lumpur's version (they closed in December but they may re-open this year.) Check out the photo here and pray that KL re-opens sooner rather than later (or not at all): http://myculinaryadventures.blogspot....
The place in the Farmers Market is called Banana Leaf and it's very good.
And thanks for posting that link; I've always wanted the recipe!

Wow, those pictures are gorgeous. I am very sorry I missed out on such a great-looking place. Any idea why they closed?
I suppose I should stop being so lazy and just cook the chicken rice at home. Having never tasted it before I wanted to try out an authentic version so I know what to aim for. Thanks!
again, another recommendation for savoy.
theirs is a good reliable rendition and very cheap too. but i warn you, dont load up on any other dish than the hcr. after eating that, go across the street to phoenix inn bakery and get something sweet for the best cheap night.
we love alhambra.
