ThirstyPig Los Angeles, CA February 4, 2010 World's Best 海南雞飯 (Hainan Chicken Rice) I’ve had Hainan Chicken in the US, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, and Macau. I can tell you honesty, that the Best Hainan Chicken is from this little hole-in-the-wall in Alhambra – Savoy Kitchen. It’s funny, i’ve been to Savoy dozens of times, though I have never ordered anything else. Nothing else matters. I’ve had friends in Taiwan tell me that Savoy’s Hainan Chicken is the best in the world as well. We would order 10 at a time and have a little feast. Hainan Chicken is a dish that is common in Malay and Singaporing Cuisines. Hainan Chicken is prepared with the chicken boiled in a chicken/pork broth. Another chicken broth is used to prepare the flavorful rice. There is a ginger and spicy sauce accompanied with the meal. Soy sauce is also available. What makes Savoy a cut above others is the consistency in the rice and the boneless chicken. Most places that I’ve been to, overseas included, the rice is too oily and the chick might be too tough. Savoy’s is just right tender and not too oily. The rice is just right. I should also note, that the Hainan Chicken in the Hardrock cafe in Hong Kong, Kowloon side is also very good. If I see a Hainan Chicken on a menu. . anywhere. .I might be tempted to order it – just because I know what to expect. Dishes Tried: HAINANESE CHICKEN 95% of the customers don’t order anything else.

A famous restaurant for Hainan Chicken Rice, Savoy Kitchen is a very small restaurant on Valley Boulevard that draws large crowds. But it isn't merely an Asian restaurant, but rather it serves both Asian and Italian options--you'll find pizza, pasta, bread, curry, and other options. As we ordered from both elements from the menu-- Asian and Italian-- we received a plate of pizza bread to start. Made with potato, the crusty, lightly sweet bread went well with some balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The Conch and Proscuitto Pasta (8.95 USD), cooked in a garlic, white wine, olive oil, and butter sauce, was as described, with plenty of al dente linguine, smoky minced proscuitto, and chewy pieces of conch. The light sauce was pleasantly accented with the seafood and meat flavors from the conch and proscuitto, and the sauce went well not just with the pasta, but with the bread as well. Curry Beef Stew (6.95 USD), on the other hand, was a very slow-cooked dish, with the beef stew falling apart when touched. The deep curry sauce base, which had coconut milk, many spices and herbs, and over a dozen fruits and vegetables, was quite greasy and flavorful, which made for a great mixing with the steamed white rice topped with fried shallot. However, being greasy, it was also very filling, and we could not finish the dish in one sitting. There are several options to get Hainan Chicken at Savoy, including white meat and dark meat options, and the choice to get seasoned chicken rice, salad, or neither. In our case, we ordered the dark meat only version of the Hainan Chicken Rice (9.30 USD), which came with plenty of strips of poached Hainan Chicken, the chicken rice, and condiments of dark soy sauce, minced ginger and scallion in oil, and a creamy chili sauce. Not adulterated with MSG, the chicken rice thus only featured the intrinsic chicken flavors and wasn't overseasoned. The chicken was poached to tender and taut, and the rice fragrant, soft, lightly accented with chicken broth, ginger, and garlic, with the kernels separated. With the light chicken flavors, the side accompaniments were crucial in accenting the dish with additional flavor-- we used a lot (and asked for extra) of the minced ginger condiment, which unlike other restaurants focused primarily on the ginger and not the scallion. The dark soy, meanwhile, provided additional depth and savoriness, while the creamy chili sauce provided some acidity, heat, and brightness to the dish. Overall, a pleasant meal at Savoy-- good fare, and thankfully, a non-existent wait for our visit, since we came near the end of the dinner hours. I wouldn't want to wait in the long queue that normally is associated with eating here! Savoy Kitchen 138 E Valley Blvd Alhambra, CA 91801 Tel: 308-9535
