The Hainan Story unveils Chinatown Point outlet: A culinary journey through time
Fans of The Hainan Story have reason to celebrate as the restaurant unveils its fifth outlet at Chinatown Point, continuing its tradition of sharing captivating Hainanese food tales. What makes this opening even more exciting is that the outlet introduces a new coffee house concept, marking a unique chapter in the restaurant’s history.
Upon stepping into the coffee house, patrons are transported to a bygone era, enveloped in a cosy ambience featuring playful red, green, and brown hues. Brick feature walls, louver windows, and mosaic tiles evoke nostalgia, setting the perfect mood for a gourmet experience.
Among the highlights are four exclusive dishes that exemplify the Hainanese culinary heritage. The Hainanese Ah Mai’s Chee Cheong Fun elevates a humble dish with fried fish ball and hard-boiled egg, drizzled with an array of sauces and garnished with fragrant accents. The Hainanese Pig’s Trotter Assam Curry Noodle, cooked to perfection in a sour-spicy assam curry, offers a delectable balance of meat and flavour-soaked rice noodles. Equally enticing is the Hainanese Pork Patty Noodle Soup, marrying juicy pork patty, rice noodle, and more in a delightful noodle broth.
For those craving fusion flair, Uncle Robert Western’s Baked Hainanese Rice Cake Lasagna presents a creative twist on the beloved chwee kueh, featuring gooey cheese and a rich eggplant tomato stew. The new outlet also pays homage to The Hainan Story’s signatures, like the 1980’s Hainanese English Crispy Chicken Cutlet and Crispy Pork Cutlet, both boasting a flavourful crunch from potato chip crumbs.
Don’t miss the opportunity to delve into The Hainan Story’s heritage through dishes like the Old English Beef Stew and various fusion-style pastas. The enclave also introduces Newspaper Curry Rice, a treasure trove of generations-old recipes, and offers breakfast options like traditional Hainanese toasts paired with unique spreads.
From nostalgic interior to innovative offerings, The Hainan Story’s Chinatown Point outlet promises a sumptuous journey through Hainanese cuisine, artfully woven with tradition and creativity.
