HOW IS THE CHICKEN RICE?
When we order chicken rice at Wee Nam Kee, a fragrant bowl of chicken broth will come first, followed by chicken and rice. The broth is tasty enough to boost your appetite. The chicken is tender and quite lean in comparison with its other counterparts. The rice is fluffy and not too oily. A chicken rice plate for one person costs S$4.80. You can also get a quarter of chicken at S$8.50 and a half chicken at S$16.
OTHER DISHES: Besides chicken rice, Wee Nam Kee also offers a decent range of home-style dishes which are often found at zi char places in Singapore such as cereal prawns, sambal kang kong, and hotplate tofu.
ATMOSPHERE: The spacious, clean, and air-conditioned eatery at United Square is often packed with local fans of chicken rice. This restaurant features an energetic ambience for a traditional dish.
AVERAGE PRICE/PAX: S$10
