SF Eats: Rooster & Rice

Since moving up to San Francisco, I’ve discovered my ultimate comfort food. In general, Sundays have always been reserved for that and I’ve always made it the day that I eat meals that remind me of home and my mom’s cooking. Hainanese Chicken Rice is simple and straightforward, but so satisfying. It’s a combination of white and dark meat with rice and a sweet ginger, garlic, and soybean sauce. Add-ons are always an option. My favorite is a side of steamed broccoli (cucumbers included) and a perfect runny egg. The portions are generous and often times I’ll eat half for my meal and save the second half for dinner. As if that wasn’t enough food already, the meal comes with a side of chicken broth to sip on. There are many versions of this meal in the Bay Area – Chicken Meets Rice, Rooster and Rice, Chick N’ Rice, and each does their own version a little bit differently.
