The Hainanese Curry Rice Challenge: Red Sea Curry Rice – Part 13 of 15
By Alfred October 6, 2009
What is the cornerstone of Hainanese Curry Rice? Well the uniquely sweet gooey curry(or a few kinds of sauces in some cases) is the main attraction of most Hainanese Curry Rice. And how did a piece of pork chop get involved? I don't really know but it's not difficult to imagine our Hainanese ancestors dipping pork cutlets into curries in the ship's galley in the past when they were hungry right? Conveniently, curry and porkchops became fundamental features of ...

By Alfred October 5, 2009
For those who have been following this Hainanese Curry Rice Challenge series, I'm sure you will agree with me that the authenticity of any Hainanese Curry Rice is in the relativity of your taste acquisition and cannot be absolutized. At the beginning, I was bemoaning the fact that I have been missing out on many fantastic Hainanese Curry Rice around the island but yet it clearly wouldn't had made much difference even if I did find them out earlier. ...

The Hainanese Curry Rice Challenge: Beach Road Scissors-Cut Curry Rice- Part 11 of 15
By Alfred October 4, 2009
I recently had a blast of continuous meals of Hainanese Curry Rice throughout the island and the main reason is as I've mentioned before, to find out how others perform as compared to my favourite one which is the Scissors Cut at Jalan Besar. Having tasted some of the really famous ones, I think some are a slight exaggeration of the actual quality. Overall I liked some that I've tried for the first time, but I have to say ...

I'm sure many of you have been to Redhill Market to eat the curry rice. And I'm sure some of you might know that the owner of this curry rice stall is actually a Teochew and there is no "Hainanese" written on the signboard. But after having a meal there, I find that it do 'pass' as a Hainanese version as the flavours of the dishes do have that "Hainanese" culture. And so I thought it deserves a ...

The Hainanese Curry Rice Challenge: Chew Feng Hainanese Curry Rice – Part 9 of 15

So everyone knows that Hainanese Curry Rice is a Singapore's creation. What if Hainan Island one day decides to 'hijack' this piece of our creation? Do you think they can do it successfully? For those who are wondering what's the fuss about all these chilli crabs "ownership", well so do I. I for one can't be bothered who first created chilli crab and whether it will be recognised as a Malaysian dish or Singaporean dish internationally. One thing is for ...

Now that I've eaten a few famous Hainanese Curry Rice around the island for the past 2 weeks, I am beginning to doubt I can find one that can surpass my favourite one at Jalan Besar. I don't want to rehash what I already shared in the Hainanese Curry Rice Challenge thus far, so I'll try to offer some new insights. This Hainanese Curry Rice adventure so far has been pretty educational because I get to see what Hainanese ...

Being authentic does not equal to being good. Being good does not equal to being authentic. You probably had been in situations where you couldn't handle some food that's being classified as truly authentic. I for one, cannot handle truly authentic Filipino food. So you see, authenticity in food is clearly not only a unit of "similarity of taste compared to the past" but must also has a relevance to your preference of taste. After tasted many authentic Muslim food ...

If you were to arrive at a hawker centre for the first time, how do you usually decide what to eat? Do you go and look for your favourite food? Or do you go and look for the longest queue? Or do you allow the appearance of a stall to impress you? I generally look at the signboards and what I'm looking for is authenticity. No I don't mean authenticity of the food but of what is written on the board. ...

A lot of food in Singapore are losing their authenticities quickly and some stalls preserve theirs by including a location name in their signboards such as Katong Laksa, Hill Street Char Kway Teow or Tiong Bahru Fishball. Of course eating at the original stall can mean a lot to some but when we have several stalls sprucing up using the same location name, how do you discern the original ones from those that are just trying to pass off ...

Have you ever wondered how did curry, something that is obviously from India, settled in a shiokadodo Hainanese form in Singapore? Many moons ago during the age of colonization, Portugese and British went to India and so they brought the Indian spices or "caree" back home. If you go to UK today, you can see that Indian food are actually sold everywhere and they're mostly in takeaway forms like the case for Chinese food over there. The British are one ...

Hainanese of today are actually descendents of a melting pot of different tribes/groups, who over the centuries adopted local lingo from all Chinese dialects and cultivated their own festive practices. For those who doesn't know, in the past, Hainan Island was a place where all the exiled scholarly officials(文官) were kept and they came from all over China. So theoritically, if you are a Hainanese, chances are your ancestors might be prominent court officials who were serving Emperors! If ...

Have you wondered why did it take the Hainanese to invent such a simple food called Chicken Rice? The truth is boiled chicken is actually eaten in many places but it's source is always credited back to Hainan. Like in Indonesia, steamed chicken is often called Ayam Hainan. Heck, there are a few billions people in Indonesia and they still need a Hainanese to teach them how to boil a chicken! It was said that, Hainanese usually can cook ...

Back in the old days, most Hainanese would know where is Seah street. It was where most Hainanese would hang out and the very first Hainanese clan association in Singapore, Nam Li was housed there. So not surprisingly, this is also the street where the popularity of Hainanese coffee and Hainanese chicken rice took effect. My dad used to take us to Sin Swee Kee at Seah street for our chicken rice when I was young. It was a pretty ...

You Ji Jia Chuan Duck Rice – No Yam Rice But Still Passed!
By Alfred September 22, 2009
Do you know that ducks need to live in a group or otherwise they'll get depressed. Ducks are also one of the very few animals that couldn't differentiate themselves from others. Meaning if they're raised with chickens, they'll think they're also a chicken. If they're raised with pigs, then they'll think they're also a pig. In our endeavour towards more delicious food, chicken meat becomes rampant in many dishes. Do you think chicken meat is popular because it is really ...

I hated buffets when I was younger. For me, buffet is one of those eating places where you walk away after a meal feeling very uncomfortable. Theoritically, when you walk into a buffet place, you're placing a bet. You bet that you can consume more in value for the price to be paid. You either can consume more or you can't. So you either lose the bet or you win the bet. Therefore we'll try to beat the house right? ...

The use of earthworms in Laksa soup is old news but to read somewhere recently, that says earthworm is one of the natures most complete food source is news. The truth is worms are full of calcium, vitamins, protein and lastly, they contain some kind of chemical substances that can be addictive! I just hope this has no connection to the fact that I keep running back to my favourite Laksa stall. But have you wondered why people can love ...

Have you ever asked your friends who doesn't eat beef, why don't they eat beef? I have and a lot of them said it is for religious reasons. But when I pressed further, they said, cow is holy and sacred, period. Ok apart from it being recognised as holy and sacred, do you think there are any more 'logical' reasons? In the past(and even now), cow is one of those animals that you can really get a lot out of. ...

It is no rocket science that Chinese style Malay's food is our local inventions that were created to cater to the Chinese community or you ...
