Truth be told I wasn’t planning on chicken rice for lunch and it hadn’t been long since breakfast. Never one to pass up what looks good chicken rice the missus & I decided on an early lunch. The place was full and bustling.
We decided on the large set which comes with Hainanese chicken and grilled chicken and free tea. Oddly though rice isn’t included in the set.
Hainanese chicken. Half with skin off ( for the missus), half with skin on (myself). Not bad but a little dry.
Nice char on the grilled chicken.
Various condiments. #1 is the satay sauce for the grilled chicken. Very good deeply peanut sauce.
#2. Red onion, pickled chillies and cucumber. Also for the grilled chicken.
#3 was a quite thick and slightly sweet yet funky soy based sauce. For the Hainanese chicken but not the normal thick soy sauce as this was on the table.
#4 Minced ginger and very hot minced green chillies. Also to go with the Hainanese chicken. Very different from the usual chillies and ginger in vinegar.
The rice that accompanied all this was quite good and indeed I ordered another bowl.
Not amazing chicken rice but good enough if you have a craving while in Chiang Mai. It was nice to see a slightly different way of serving chicken rice with a different take on the condiments.
