Wee Nam Kee

There's been a lot of hype about this place. Be ready for long lines if you plan to eat here (they do not accept reservations)This is a franchise of the popular one in Singapore, which specializes in Hainanese chicken. I have not been to the one in Singapore, so I am not one to compare.

It took us a while to get a table but we finally settled down. We were a big group so it was not easy getting a table. I left the ordering to my sister and brother in law, since they had eaten there before.

We had both kinds of Hainanese chicken: The traditional one and roasted. Both were very good but I'd say the chicken was over done. I prefer the traditional boiled one.

As you can see, this was my station. All prepared with the chicken rice and the dips: chilli sauce, Ginger and sweet soy sauce. We also had other dishes like pork, pork asado and cereal Prawns. The rice was the best, kinda oily but with a lot of flavor.

Aside from the Hainanese chicken nothing really else stood out of what we had. The cereals prawns were just too dry and over cooked. The Pork was good although it just had too much fat.

I'm not really convinced about this place. I have to go back though just to give it another chance. It just opened a few weeks ago and thy are still on dry run.
