Located in Kim San Leng hawker center near Junction 8, Ming Kee Chicken Rice never fails to attract large crowds during meal times. One doesn't need to worry as their service is relatively fast unless there are office workers who are ordering huge takeaways for their colleagues.
Personally, I waited for 10 minutes during lunch at 1.00pm and I would estimate that one would be served from anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes during peak periods.
Ming Kee chicken rice stall serves steamed chicken only and they do it in the different ways most Singaporean hawkers do. One can have the standard chicken rice and chicken, or order half a / full chickens for sharing.
I ordered the standard plate of chicken rice with breast meat and extra rice at $3.30. It is nice to note that they do fulfill one's preferences of chicken parts such as breast meat, thigh meat etc. at no extra charge. Their rice was not oily, while the breast meat was a bit too dry for my taste. However, Ming Kee's chicken rice still stands out from many other chicken rice stalls due to their unique rice texture and flavoring as well as their large sized portion of chicken meat.
Lastly, while many Singaporean hawkers rise and fall with their chili sauce, Ming Kee's chili sauce was not spectacular but good enough for one's meal with the chicken rice. This is definitely one of the must try chicken rice outlets in Singapore.
