Environment was rather rowdy but it was rather interesting place to observed how the folks worked. Communications were exchanged across the eating house with the loud vocals of the ladies using mother tounges and dialects. For one moment, she was using Cantonese to speak to one of the fellow workers and the next using Hokkien to instruct, then switched back into Mandarin for her customers.

The noodles were springy and chewy dipped with soy sauce and was rather plain with a few pieces of lettuce. Presentation wise, it could be better.

The dumplings were nicely wrapped up with crunchy bits from the water chest nuts. The dumplings skin was smooth and thin. The overall taste of the dumplings soup has nothing much to rave about.

Though we dined in as 2 pax, the portion was way more than we expected, they gave us half a chicken, I assumed. However, the chance to enjoy such delicious plate of chicken was not many and we had our stomach expanded just for it.

The meat was smooth and succulent. Soy sauce was well absorbed by the chicken and you can see it from its dark brown skin. Despite of that, they are never salty. On the contrary, they were naturally sweet in tenderness. Chew Kee's Soy Chicken is probably one of the best I have eaten so far.

Service received by the uncle was "warm" and friendly. However one thing to take note is that for such traditional eating house, the dining space could be quite limited, moreover such traditional taste of soy chicken are well-liked by people, thus there is always a crowd. Be prepared to wait!

Total Spendings: $17.50 includes:

- 2 glasses of home made barley
- 1 plate of white rice
- 2 plates of egg noodle
- 1 plate of Soy chicken for 2 pax
- 1 bowl of shrimp dumpling soup

I used to dabao this Soya Sauce Chicken Noodles at the roadside along Upper Cross St. They'd take your order while you're in your car! Good service right? They're usually crowded during lunchtime, and sharing of tables is common here.

The chicken noodles did not disappoint! The noodles were so springy!! Absolutely good!! The drumstick was a bit small though, but very tender and flavourful! The Prawn Dumpling Soup we ordered was quite substantial. Figured they worked out 3 dumplings per pax. Dumplings had the length, but not the thickness in filling. Taste was average. Vegetables were average as well, although the fried shallots in them were a little hard (probably those mixed with plastic). 

As 1 blogger mentioned, there was this nasty lady there who took orders. If she was not/ related to the Boss, time for her to get lost. When my fried and I found a round table to ourselves, she asked us to shift to a smaller table. We declined, and she repeatedly nagged that we'll have to share our table with others. Right from the start, we never intend to hog the table to ourselves, so it got extremely annoying to hear her nagging. Later, she assigned 2 others to join us. There was also another couple occupying the same round table like us behind us, but I suspect she had to fill our table intentionally. A while later, the lunch crowd reduced, and the 2 assigned to us also left to occupy the same round table to themselves. i concluded, that woman was dumb! She should have just left these customer dynamics to the customers themselves, sharing tables and all.

There is a nearby eatery selling the same food, and if memory served me well, they serve bigger portions of chicken meat! But taste wise, I'd still give it to this eatery. 

Total Cost:
Soya Sauce Chicken Noodles (Drumstick) + Prawn Dumpling Soup + Vegetables + Barley ~ $10.

Walking along Upper Cross Street in Chinatown, you will wonder if you are seeing double. Two shops selling Soya Sauce Chicken, with name close to each other, that you might think it was a spelling mistake during the naming of the shop. However, sibling rivalry are the theme here and we as the foodies in Singapore are to benefit for more option to have.So far, I was only able to try the Soya Sauce Chicken from Chew Kee Eating House.

So far, I was only able to try the Soya Sauce Chicken from Chew Kee Eating House. A plate of Soya Sauce Chicken Noodle will just set you back $3.50. The egg noodle is thin, cooked to superb al dente with a crunchy and springy texture. The noodle does not have any alkaline water taste like those you find in ordinary wanton noodle. The chicken are just succulent and soya sauce penetrated in the meat. For those non chilli eater like myself, you can taste the delightful soya sauce hanging on each threat of the noodle. Delicious!!

Prior to this visit, I ever tried their big version ($4.50). The size was so huge, I was having trouble finishing it.

To accompany the noodle, I ordered their prawn dumpling soup (Shui Jiao) $5. The broth is clear and robust, and the dumpling are filled with fresh prawns and crunchy chestnut. A very good quality.

Service is ordinary. Our “uncle” service staff, just take our order, deliver the food and collect money. Rumours say that their Lady boss is not very friendly and from my observations, let just say, she hardly smile. The first time that I ate here, she was very helpful. This time around I did get the famous stare when I took photo of the front of the shop


My verdict: definitely a place to go for Soya Sauce Chicken Noodle. Cheers!!!

Order one whole chicken and to my surprise, they give out the chicken organs FOC. Can't imagine that they are so generous as normally others stall will tends to sell it rather then give it free. The chicken meat is tasty, soft and tender. Mix it well with the sauce and eat with rice. fantastic.

According to my colleague is that when you order a whole chicken, you get to purchase the wanton soup at a special rate of $1. That is unbelievable. I can only say that they are good at business. Their wanton is delicious and the filling in it is sufficient. Soup base is nice too.

They do have self cook barley drink. That will be better as recently weather is abit strange and is good to have it to smoother your throat.


Overall cost for four pax is $21.

Will be back for more and strongly recommend this to all people.

*Note: They close at 5pm and is heavily crowded during lunch hours.

I ordered Soya Sauce Chicken Noodle with Wanton Soup.

The soya sauce chicken meat was tender, their skin was especially flavourful of herbs. The noodles was springy like others cantonese style noodles.

Wanton was meaty with chestnut inside. Quite yummy.

Sitting inside stall maybe a little stuffy and hot.

Walking along the narrow pavements down Upper Cross Street was an exhilarating experience for the senses as whiffs of the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) lingered in the air. Located just within the parameters of Chinatown, it was no wonder that it was a popular spot for TCM shops. There must be about some 6-8 of them each lined with glass bottles of ginseng and 'dong quai' at the shopfront.

Walking along the narrow pavements down Upper Cross Street was an exhilarating experience for the senses as whiffs of the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) lingered in the air. Located just within the parameters of Chinatown, it was no wonder that it was a popular spot for TCM shops. There must be about some 6-8 of them each lined with glass bottles of ginseng and 'dong quai' at the shopfront.

Gingerly treading the pathway avoiding puddles of water due to the rain, we finally arrived at this unassuming and rather inconspicuous coffee shop which spanned over two shop lots. Along the way, there was a similar newer-looking eating house which according to my friend was a sibling stall to Chew Kee. Another one of your classic sibling-rivalry stories which was of no significance to us as long as they pacify our growling stomachs and of course, dainty tastebuds!

(+) Very tenderly soft and smooth chicken pieces, especially the thigh and drumstick meat.
(+) Chicken breast portions were commendably good. Succulent and no dry parched pieces.
(+) Probably one of the best soy chicken I had ever tasted.
(+) Soy sauce was well absorbed into the skin and it was very fragrant.
(+) Despite being drenched in the soy sauce, it was not salty at all.
(+) The skin was not too fat but juicy with natural sweetness from the chicken enhanced by the soy sauce.
(+) Definitely an ambrosial treat to delight the palate.

(+) Al dente, really your perfect plate of noodles.
(+) Slightly chewy, elastic, perfectly dipped in the soy sauce.
(-) Presentation wise could be improved.

(+) Crunchy bits from the water chestnut gave a varied mouthfeel and natural sweetness.
(+) Soft meat dumplings were well complemented by the crunch.
(+) Dumplings were nicely wrapped, none had burst skin.
(+) Despite so, the skin was thin and did not gave that yucky-too-much-starch taste.

P.S: I only ate the dumplings and avoided the soup. As a general thumb of rule, I usually give outside soup a miss as an attempt to cut down the sodium and MSG intake so I cannot comment much on its taste.

(+) Not overly poached, perfect just to retain the crunchiness of bok choy.
(+) Crispy onion fried bits went very well with the simple tasting vegetables.
(+) Fragrance of the dish was not merely from the oyster sauce also the evenly mixed signature soy sauce.
(-) Would enjoy it better if there were more of the onion fried bits.
