Chicken rice, go to KFC

Go to KFC, that’s the advice I got from a local when I asked about where to find chicken rice. You see, back in South East Asia, one often encounters Hainanese Chicken Rice at markets and food courts.

So I figured that I should look up this dish at its home province. Alas, it was not be found. Seems the name refers to the Hainanese immigrants who when they moved to South East Asia started preparing this dish.
