at Hainanese Delights
-Ermita, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines-

Hainanese Delights is a Singaporean restaurant. As the name of the place would suggest, the dishes are influenced by Hainanese culture.
Everything on the otherwise simple menu is referred to by some proprietary/gimmicky nickname (e.g., the iconic chicken rice is called, rather unimaginatively, “Hainanese Delights.”
The chicken rice was not entirely delightful. The “unlimited” Hainan rice was respectable – not that I’m qualified to judge, frankly, having only tasted the dish twice prior. While the chicken was tender enough, the sauce tasted simply like sweet soy sauce, with none of the subtle silkiness that I’d experienced in Singapore (see most recently 4.267 Hainanese Chicken Rice). Good value at 139 pesos.
