Savoy- Hainan Chicken

  • j

I am soo addicted to the Hainan Chicken at Savoy (Alhambra on Valley). Although the rice is so good, I substitute it for their garden salad (trying to be healthy). Truly satisfied, but just have to ask... Are there any other places that serve Hainan Chicken as good as Savoy... meaning, actual meat, not bones, flavored rice, and sauce??

  1. I'd check out Yazmin, also in Alhambra on Main St. Great Hainan chicken rice there....haven't been to Savoy so I don't know how it compares. But the chicken is great, the rice is flavorful, and there are two sauces with the dish. The lunch special price during the weekdays is a great deal.

      I tried the hainan chicken rice at Yazmin. It was so overcooked that it was just proteinous mush disguised as chicken. Don't waste your time or money.

    2. I concur about Savoy! Haven't had better Hainan chicken anywhere else. Their escargots in garlic butter is also swell.


      1. The Hainan Chicken Rice is so delicious at Savoy.

        Thanks for the tip on substituting garden salad for rice!

        I only go there twice a month to limit mixing protein with carbs. Now I can go more often! Yes!!!!!!!!

        1. i'm always up for a good hainan chicken actually. think savoy is the best place?

          1. Pardon my ignorance, but does anyone have an address for Savoy, or a description of the plaza or where it intersects with Valley Blvd? Thanks!
