Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice 威南记鸡饭餐室 (Novena)

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.
'White' Chicken Rice $4.00 with Gizzard $0.50

I ordered the 'White / Steamed Chicken' also known as 白鸡 in Chinese with Chicken Gizzard.

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.
