The First Hainanese Chicken Rice Restaurant in Japan
[updated June 2020]
Being the first is a large claim to fame, but Mu-Hung started from the chef’s strong passion for bringing back the taste she met while she was traveling around Singapore and introducing it to Japan.
The famous dish of Mu-Hung, Hainanese Chicken Rice, is a Singaporean daily one plate meal with boil-steamed or deep-fried chicken, rice and soup. Even though it is a just one plate, it makes for a satisfying meal. Mu-Hung uses chicken bred in natural surroundings in Nagano prefecture. Each plate meal has three sauces: ginger lemon, chili, and Chinese soy-sauce, of which their chili sauce is an original recipe handmade at Mu-Hung. The chef told us it’s recommended to mix all of the sauce, chicken, and rice before eating. “That’s the best way to enjoy Hainanese Chicken Rice.”
Customers can choose plate size among small, medium, and large depending on their appetite. There are also many single item dishes and sweets on the menu as well, such as the popular mango-apricot seed pudding. In addition to the specialty dishes, another one of the restaurant’s attractive points is its comfortable Asian atmosphere.
