Everyone ordered Hainanese chicken rice but they only had 6 serves left (This is a very popular dish as they only have this on the menu on Sundays), so myself and another friend went without the chicken rice and got something else instead. Let's start with the chicken rice. H says it's the best he's ever tasted in Sydney and I have to agree. The rice was very tasty as typically chicken rice is cooked in chicken broth. H and I both suspect that they've also added butter or margerine for the added creaminess and glossiness of the rice. The chicken itself was tender, tasty and not overly cooked. Another criteria of a good chicken rice is it's chilli sauce and this place has the most authentic chilli sauce you can find in Sydney! We will definitely be back for more.
The other dishes we ordered, I found, just ordinary. I had the combination noodles which were actually pretty bland. We also ordered the Fish Head Curry. It looked really creamy which is not how it's suppose to be and doesn't taste like Fish Head Curry either.
Tofu Bakar and Fried Beans in Belacan
Other dishes we ordered were Tofu bakar (Grilled tofu) and fried beans in belacan. The tofu which was supposed to be grilled was actually deep fried (?). The fried beans were nothing spectacular. I guess each place has it's own special dish and Kopitiam's Hainanese Chicken Rice.
