YY Kafei Dian (Singapore, SINGAPORE) ★★★☆☆

Of course, a trip to Singapore is not finished until you have a Hainan chicken rice. We still got an hour to burn before taking off for the airport so I decided to bring the family out to Purvis Street for some Hainanese chicken.  

Purvis Street has always been a good place to look for tasty Hainanese chicken as both Chin Chin and Yet Con are highly regarded for their chicken rice. But this time around, I ended up going with a random choice in YY Kafei Dian because the place just looked a little less cramped than the previous two. 

Hainanese chicken - Well, let's get this out of the way. This was surprisingly good. The chicken was velvety with silky smooth skin and a good layer of gelatin.

Oyster omelette - Slightly disappointing. The oysters could have been more fresh. Kind of wasted a pretty decent omelette.

Preserved Turnip Omelette - We ordered two different types of omelettes. This one is my favorite with large chunks of preserved turnip and a bit of minced pork. Perfect to go with my steamed rice.

Braised tofu with assorted vegetables - Not bad. A little surprised that they used egg tofu in this one.

Stir-fried pea sprout - Finally, some veggies to wrap up this meal.

As it turns out, not only were their hainanese chickens pretty popular dish around here, their donuts were also one of the top sellers. They were going fast and furious next to me!

I thought the chicken rice here was actually better than the one I had in Yet Con before and more importantly for us (with our nugget around), YY Kafei Dian looked a lot cleaner and more airy. I will definitely come back just for the chicken rice alone!
