Hainan Chicken House is a modern Malaysian spot on the Sunset/Borough Park border, and you should make plans to go ASAP. They’re making some of the best Hainanese chicken and rice in the five boroughs, wrapped up in a big square of butcher paper to evoke the feeling of a Hawker stall. The space has a modern farmhouse aesthetic, with wall tiles and decorative plates showcasing different chicken breeds. You’ll want to get some classics like their namesake dish and the excellent curry laksa, but there should be an order of their schmaltzy Hainanese chicken liver mousse on your table, too. On the weekends they rotate through some worthwhile specials (recently, it was Singapore Chili Crab) so pay attention to the whiteboard behind the counter.
