To celebrate Singapore National Day alone in Buffalo, I decided to make Hainanese Chicken Rice so I wouldn’t forget what home tasted like. On the other hand, it’s also because Prissyhan’s specially packed PrimaTaste mixes were going bad. 😛
Twitter friends @jhsu, @BuffaloPundit, @nimbupani all approved of my semi-homemade creation. Even @ramblinglib made me play the Singapore National Anthem (.mp3) while feasting on my passable Chicken Rice.
UPDATE: If you’re craving Laksa, Char Kway Teow, or any traditional Asian delights in the States, a Singaporean mother in Georgia has started an online store offering various Singapore food products, including Prima Taste and Chng’s Kee, at SingaporeMalaysiaStore.com. She lets me know that her independent panel of Singaporeans and Malaysians helped her select items that are truly authentic and easy-to-make. Prices seem reasonable, and I’m glad that there’s hope for those of us in the smaller cities 😉
