Hainanese Chicken Rice is a staple and is probably one of those dishes that made Singapore very popular in the foodie world. Visit any hawker center can you'll definitely see a stall selling Hainanese Chicken Rice.
My sister and I also grew up loving Hainanese Chicken Rice. I love the oily ginger sauce and my Chicken Rice will never be complete without it. My sister, on the other hand, adds a touch of chili sauce before enjoying her piece of chicken.
We planned to meet up with our Singapore-based friends and I wanted to make sure that we'll be able to feast over good food as this will be our continuous wedding celebration with them. Following HK's recommendation, I left them all a message to meet up with us at Wee Nam Kee, boy was I excited!
While waiting, Auntie handed the menu to us which we began to browse over. Not wanting to wait any longer, we reserved a whole chicken consisting of half roasted and half white chicken. I also got a large plate of Cereal Prawns as this is also one thing they're known for and an order of Satay Leafy Greens.
The moment our table was available, Auntie began to briskly bring out our orders which was perfect timing as almost everyone has arrived.
As soon as everyone got a plate of Chicken Rice, we began to dig in. In between chitchats, getting-to-know-one-another and major catching up, we enjoyed each dish which really made our dinner truly enjoyable.
Dinner was very relaxing and it was so nice to finally see my dear friends again. We sure hope that they enjoyed our Wee Nam Kee dinner as much as Paul and I did.
Wee Nam Kee is located at 275 Thomson Road, Novena Ville, Singapore (Opposite Novena Church). They're open from 10am to 12mn.
