SINGAPORE – A hullabaloo over Hainanese chicken rice has been simmering over the past week. And no, it is not about which hawker stall does it better.
A recipe for one of Singapore’s beloved national dishes, paid for by British grocer Waitrose & Partners, was published in British newspaper The Guardian on Oct 3.
Netizens are riled up over this version of Hainanese chicken rice, calling it an abomination.
For one thing, it looks nothing like the dish that diners who may have been to Singapore and Malaysia are used to.
