A relative newcomer to the scene, this to-go-only operation in Chinatown serves a deconstructed Hainan chicken that looks like a minimalist art project. The various elements are laid out delicately, and don’t touch each other at all. There’s Singaporean-style chicken, a mound of oily rice, thinly sliced cucumbers, three sauces, and a bone broth garnished with pickled vegetables. When it arrived at our house, it felt like opening a packed lunch, prepared with care by our mom.
