    Wee Nam Kee chicken rice is one of the most established chicken rice brands in Singapore. In addition to Marina Square, there are 3 more outlets located islandwide.

    Other than the traditional Hainanese chicken (poached/steamed version), the restaurant also offers roasted and soy chicken. The poached chicken was cooked to perfection, and the meat is moist and flavourful. The rice was fragrant, but slightly on the oily side. To take it up a notch, you can coat your rice with a generous serving of dark soy sauce or dip your chicken into the chili sauce and ginger paste before you send them into your mouth.

Couple it with fragrant rice, flavourful ginger paste and tangy chilli sauce and you will get an explosion of flavours in your mouth.
