Restaurant Singapore Hainan Chi-fan (Chicken Rice) in Tokyo
Today is our Singapore’s 53rd birthday~ our National Day!!!
Exactly a year ago, I was in Tokyo and decided to celebrate the special day with my classmates in a Singaporean cuisine restaurant! Apparently, Japanese love Singapore cuisines especially our Hainanese chicken rice! In fact, the restaurant which we visited is called “Singapore Hainan Chi-fan”! The dishes were relatively authentic, given their taste and I give credits to their pretty plating. Oh! The Merlion statue outside the restaurant is an absolute surprise!
The restaurant has 4 outlets in Tokyo. Recommended to visit if you have cravings for Singaporean cuisines! Click the link below for other Singaporean cuisine restaurants too:
We were pleasantly surprised by the Merlion –
the official mascot of Singapore, with a lion’s head and fish’s body.
Love the plating, especially for the Hainanese chicken rice set. All of us enjoyed our order!
Set menu… Hainanese chicken rice (with original steamed chicken or deep fried chicken) , Chicken curry rice, shrimp curry rice and bak kut teh. Bak kut teh is a pork rib dish cooked in spicy broth.
Other set meals too…. look so appetizing! Did you know Singaporeans love samba chilli sauce? These four dishes are more spicy with the accompanying samba sauce. Special mention of Nasi Goreng, fried rice which originates from Indonesia but has become a very popular dish in Singapore with some local touches.
More yummy dishes! The dishes here are very typical Singapore Chinese street food in hawker centers!
New menu that season: Salt and pepper prawns. I’m actually quite amused by the Singapore Tourism Board tagline used: Uniquely Singapore.
A huge poster hangs from the ceiling of a satay man! Satay is a dish of seasoned meat (chicken, beef, pork or lamb), grilled over charcoal and served with peanut gravy. A favourite among Singaporeans!
