The Hainanese Chicken Rice is a de facto national dish of Singapore. It can be enjoyed in literally any food courts, hawker centres, coffee shops and restaurants. There has been claims that Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice along with the likes of Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice, Chatterbox and Fook Seng Goldenhill Chicken Rice are favourites among Singaporeans. With this background, FoodieFC set off to check out Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice!Wee Nam Kee a family-own business in operation since 1982 is well-known as a chicken rice speciality shop. Today, Wee Nam Kee serves a wide range of local favourite dishes including Hainanese Chicken Rice, Curry Fish Head, Cereal Prawn and Roasted Pork. Wee Nam Kee is located opposite Novena MRT Station, along the same road as where Revenue House is.I visited Wee Nam Kee on a weekday at 11am. Hence, it was not crowded. Customers patronising Wee Nam Kee do not need to queue up to order. Instead, sit down at a vacant table and wait for one of the staff to take your order. Payment can be made at the end of meal at the cashier located in the stall.Some of the must have for chicken rice - e.g. chilli, ginger, sweet sauce, pepper.I ordered the 'White / Steamed Chicken' also known as 白鸡 in Chinese with Chicken Gizzard. 'White' Chicken Rice $4.00 with Gizzard $0.50. The chicken rice was fragrant and not oily. Generous portion of Chicken Gizzard was given. However, the main star of this dish was disappointing. The White / Steamed Chicken was a tad too dry and tough. It seems to a certain flavour to give it a certain oomph. Luckily, the chilli help to enhanced the taste and grease the chicken.I was quite disappointed by this meal at Wee Nam Kee as they are well known for being one of the best chicken rice stall in Singapore.I noticed from the few tables that were occupied, everyone ordered Roasted Chicken 烧鸡 instead of Steamed Chicken. Maybe I should have ordered that instead.Detailed review: http://foodiefc.blogspot.sg/2012/02/wee-nam-kee-chicken-rice-novena.html continue reading

This chicken rice shop never fail to impress me during all my visits here, and infact I have already came here for more than ten times in this year! I love to have their roasted chicken rice set which goes along with a nicely presented roasted chicken meat and a bowl of simple vegetable soup. The rice is indeed very fragrant, not too sticky with the perfect texture for this local delight. The chicken meat is very juicy and love those well roasted chicken skin on all the individual pieces of chickens, which are also slight crispy as well. The added garnishes, parsley and thinly slices of cucumbers make the dish looks more presentable and delicious to go along with the chicken meat as well. But not to forget their must-eat minced garlic and the chicken rice chilli sauce, which certainly bring you to another higher level of enjoyment when having this dish here. Buy back is also welcome here and it will taste equally delicious when you bring it back to enjoy with your loves one. continue reading

Doesn't really know why recently keep craving for chicken rice and my roommate recommended that this chicken rice is nice and always have long line of people awaiting. On this day, very happy that my colleague do want to bring me there and have it together. Woah, only 2 of us and that's what we ordered: BBQ and steam chicken add on BBQ pork! Eat with the chili sauce and garlic paste is such a perfect match and satisfied meals ti fulfill our tummy! continue reading

Every saturday, I have a standard routine of going to Novena church followed by having my dinner at Wee Nam Kee restaurant.To start off, the place is big and specialises in chicken rice but have other stuff. I cant expect roasted chicken at 9pm but i think that the steamed chicken is equally good. It is a little cold but the rice is a neutralizer as it is warm and tasty. The condiments at the side provides us with many tastes. There was one night, i was feeling a little sick and had their soup of the day. It was the pork rib soup with red dates and winter melon. Yumm... as it was a cold night, the soup was really helpful. It is a little pricey though, one plate of steam chicken rice with a glass of lime juice is around $5.30. Despite the price, it is still tasty.The place isnt absolutely clean but it is suitable for dining. I cant blame them there are so many people dining there.Lastly, the service is good, prompt and lots of intiative and the dining experience overall was ok. A good place to recommend for people who love chicken rice but if you want roasted, PLEASE GO FOR LUNCH!!!! continue reading

I think it's a Sunday that's why there's quite a number of people at it's at 3pm plus!The neither here nor there lunch time Well i suppose cause it's Famous Chicken Rice stall!My mum asked me to buy home since i'm in the vicinity We've always passed by on the bus and always see many people eating there!But i got a shock when i pay, it's $4 for a packet of Chicken Rice! It's slightly expensive for my taste but i could see why when i got home and opened it up!The portion is quite a lot Mine's the You Ji (Dark Soya Chicken)!It's very tasty due to their marinating i think My mum find that the white chicken is not as nice, a bit more dry than mine!So i really think that the sauce is very important continue reading
