Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor finished her itinerary at the Boao Forum for Asia in Hainan and transferred to Guangzhou today (April 21). He will attend the special meeting of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Construction Leading Group tomorrow.

She posted on the social network on the same day that she hopes that more Hong Kong youths will come to Hainan for internship, employment, and entrepreneurship, and "enjoy the shadow of coconut trees and the Hainanese chicken rice that Hong Kong people love!" The post unexpectedly caused a heated debate among netizens: Is Hainan Island really real? Famous for Hainanese Chicken Rice?

There are different opinions on the origin of Hainanese chicken rice. The Hainanese chicken rice that Hong Kong people generally come into contact with are mostly dishes from Southeast Asian countries such as Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia.

The famous food columnist Liu Jianwei said that the most primitive and early technology of Hainanese chicken rice may indeed be related to Hainan Island, so Lin Zheng's statement is not necessarily all wrong.

It's just that the people who carried it forward later were basically stars, horses, and Thailand, and they had nothing to do with Hainan Island. They also said that "on the contrary, Hainan Island may not necessarily be a Hainanese chicken rice."

Liu Jianwei: Early technology may come from Hainan, but it is no longer popular in the local area.

The Hainanese chicken rice generally known by Hong Kong people is the white chopped chicken with oily rice soaked in chicken broth, plus special chili sauce and black soy sauce. Some people will mix it with ginger and spring onions and other ingredients, which is the most famous in Hainan. Wenchang chicken is different. Wenchang chicken is fed with coconut instead of being soaked.

The Hainanese chicken rice from Southeast Asia is the most famous. Among them, the "Tiantian Hainanese Chicken Rice" from Singapore is famous all over the world, attracting many tourists to "pilgrimage". In recent years, branches have opened in Hong Kong.

After Lin Zheng published this post, people in the political and cultural circles on the Internet "pumped water."

Columnist Tao Jie pointed out: "Will the formal characterization of Hainanese chicken rice hurt the national sentiments of Singaporeans, or should the Hainanese government take the lead in registering Hainanese chicken rice with the United Nations as a cultural heritage patent before the Koreans point out the historical truth? "The Legislative Council Medical Member Chen Peiran said: "Hainan chicken rice is from Hainan, Yangzhou fried rice is from Yangzhou, Fujian fried rice is from Fujian, Xiamen fried rice is from Xiamen, Shanghai coarse fried rice is from Shanghai, Portuguese chicken rice is from Portugal, and Swiss chicken wings. From Switzerland."

Phillip Khan, a Pakistani Hong Kong resident who participated in the Yau Tsim Mong District Council election in 2019, said: "To eat Hainanese chicken rice, I have to go to Hainan Island to work or live. If I want to eat curry, do I have to go to India? Live in Pakistan or marry a local?"

Haven't heard of "Hainan Island Authentic Hainanese Chicken Rice"

Liu Jianwei pointed out that according to his preliminary research, the technology of the earliest Hainanese chicken rice was indeed related to Hainan Island. It was brought by the locals to the Southeast Asian countries, that is, the current regions of Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. The evolution process is difficult to verify, but Objectively speaking, it was Malaysia and Singapore that eventually carried forward this dish. On the contrary, it is not popular in Hainan Island. He has never heard the saying of "Hainan Island Authentic Hainanese Chicken Rice": "Instead, Hainan Island 𠵱家It may not be the case for Hainanese chicken rice."

Liu also pointed out that the food culture of Hainan Island has never been as rich as that of Guangdong Province and other regions. In addition to the fact that coconuts are more famous, there are no “signature specialties” that are widely praised for the time being. Large-scale economic development has not developed a relatively large-scale, well-known gourmet brand in business.
