The great Hainanese chicken rice debate: Singapore vs Malaysia

SCMP, 22 Feb 2021
Is this poached chicken dish served with various condiments originally from Singapore or Malaysia? It's a question that stirs up quite a debate between these two countries where eating and criticising the other side’s cuisine are national pastimes. In this episode Bernice and Alkira trace the origins of Hainanese chicken rice and find out how there's a lot more that goes into making this succulent dish fragrant and flavourful than meets the eye. Bernice and Alkira then ruthlessly pit their Malaysian and Singaporean colleagues against each other to hear who does it best, and hear from two chefs on the art of this simple and nuanced cuisine. #scmppodcasts

Interviewees:
Norman Musa, Malaysian chef and cookbook author
Anthony Tang, co-owner of Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice in Hong Kong
