Nasi Ayam Singapura Recipe

Now and again I am bringing to you recipes from some of Bali’s best chef’s and restaurants in which I have had the pleasure of experiencing myself. However, I may not be the best of cook’s in my own kitchen but I’m definitely going to attempt to replicate this dish from Bali.

NASI AYAM SINGAPURA or to some of us it is also named Hainan Chicken Rice.

ABOUT Baba’s Bali

For the past eleven years, hu’u devotees and fans have been getting elegantly wasted with us in Seminyak Bali and it doesn’t look like the party is stopping anytime soon. To bring the revelry to even greater heights, Sean Lee, owner of the hu’u group, created BABA’S Restaurant specifically for its devotees.

BABA’S is a fresh and authentic dining scene that pays homage to Sean’s South-East Asian roots. Long anticipated by everyone in Bali and our well-travelled friends, our appointed Master Chefs have created a menu that has captured the authenticity and diversity of the cuisine for the first time in Bali.

Thankyou to Hu’u Bar’s Baba’s Bali for sharing with us the wonderful dish and I look forward to sharing more with all you Bali Bird Chef’s!
