218 Hainanese Lor Mee
The 218 Hainanese Lor Mee comes with three options for your choosing: Jiaji White Braised Duck, Black Pork Cutlet, and Grilled Saba Fish

At Hainan Story Chapter Two, you can enjoy an extensive menu featuring both Hainanese and local fare, as well as fresh bakes and pastries under one roof. They have added two new brands into their lineup: 218 Hainanese Lor Mee and Ah Mai Kum Hainanese Chicken Rice Porridge.

The 218 Hainanese Lor Mee is a new rendition by Hainan Story Chapter Two of the much-loved local dish. Made using chicken broth and paired with peanuts for crunch, the Hainanese lor mee gravy is thick and flavourful, with a good ratio of ingredients. If you enjoy braised duck, you must try the authentic Jiaji White Braised Duck Hainanese Lor Mee ($16.80). One of the four well-known meals from Jiaji Town on the island of Hainan is the Jiaji White Braised duck, renowned for its flavorful and incredibly soft duck meat. The Ultimate Black Pork Cutlet Hainanese Lor Mee ($14.80) is equally satisfying as the pork fillet is breaded and deep-fried to crunchy perfection. 

Ah Mai Kum Hainanese Chicken Rice Porridge

Hainanese chicken rice needs no introduction as a delicious staple that can be eaten any time of the day. Ah Mai Kum Hainanese Chicken Rice Porridge ($11.80) is a comforting rendition of the classic dish made with fragrant rice and chicken broth, this dish is perfect for those who want something light but hearty. 

Fans of British Hainanese Style dishes, you’re in for a treat too! 

Uncle Robert – not a real person – a familiar fixture at the Hainan Story at Hillion Mall, is also serving up delicious western dishes at the latest outlet in Jewel Changi Airport.
