Savoy Kitchen

Cheap Eats: Chinese, June 2012

This busy corner café is the place for Hainan chicken rice, tender pieces of boneless boiled chicken served on a mound of broth-soaked grains. Deceptively simple? Yes. Incredibly comforting? You have no idea. Sweet soy, ginger-scallion, and lime-chili dipping sauces take the flavor to new heights.

Lunchtime crowds gather for this Hong Kong-style coffee shop’s faithful version of Hainan chicken rice, a deceptively simple plate of boiled chicken over jasmine rice with broth and three dipping sauces.
