HAINANESE CHICKEN RICE " HYLAM KAI-FAN"
Supposedly, Phoenix Restaurant in Markham (2 locs: Woodbine/Steeles, McCowan/HWY 7) has really good Hainanese Chicken Rice. I've had it a couple times and I quite enjoyed it. However, I'm not the expert on Hainanese Chicken Rice, so if it's authentic, I dunno. Note: it has been about a year since I've been. Here's a photo from a couple years back:
There are a couple of older threads about this though, so you might glean something from there. I haven't had it any where else in recent memory.
Making the chicken yourself isn't so hard. I find making the rice right is the hard part (I should just give up and use the rice cooker instead of the pot).
Thanks. I've tried Phoenix , chicken is OK but doesn't have the aroma and the chili sauce was very disappointing. The rice was bland. You need to gently fry the uncooked rice in chicken fat, that sounds
hi-cal, but that gives it that fatty golden color. Cook the rice in chicken broth, using a rice cooker is fine
but go abit short on water which gives it a grainier end result. Don't forget to salt your broth for flavour !
