3 Sauces Hainam Chicken Rice is a stall in the Richland Center food court, located in the basement of the shopping mall. This place is really worth a visit—and not only to enjoy their wonderful hip-hop playlist. The real reason to come is for their specialty: excellent Hainan chicken rice. The poached chicken is soft and chewy perfection, served atop rich rice that’s been flavored with chicken fat. It comes with three tasty sauces (chili, soy, and garlic) that should be used liberally, and a light chicken broth. We can’t think of a more comforting (or satisfying) way to spend $12.
