October 1st, 2016. Once upon a time, I went to Singapore with my beloved Mom, sisters and brother. And I remember it’s like yesterday, we went to this place because everybody told us about this delicious place to eat Chicken Rice. And we were so happy because it was delicious. I still remember Mom’s smile. Miss her so much it hurts. And last year, they opened in Indonesia, in BSD City for exact. I haven’t got a chance to go there and try the place. Until I saw that they will open in Grand Indonesia. Yaaaay, closer to my home. Finally, I can try this one. Wee Nam Kee.
Originally a father and son family owned business, which started in 1987, the Famous Wee Nam Kee Hainanese Chicken Rice Restaurant for two generations has proudly preserved the heritage and recipes refined over the years. Since 1989, Wee Nam Kee was initially a Chicken Rice specialty shop and eventually evolved into a restaurant serving a board range of Nanyang inspired dishes to complement famous signature Hainanese dishes.
Singapore’s true Hainanese Chicken Rice is perfect and recognized by many food lovers to be well represented by Wee Nam Kee Hainanese Chicken Rice Restaurant. Starting from 4 outlets in Singapore, Wee Nam Kee has been expanding to Japan, Philippines, Korea, and now Wee Nam Kee is opening in Indonesia with a brighter look while still remain the same food quality and features an energetic ambience for a traditional dish.
Opened in November 2015 at The Breeze BSD City, and now we open our second branch in Indonesia at Grand Indonesia. Wee Nam Kee Indonesia comes up with a new ambience and delightful menu. By delivering an original and authentic taste of Chicken Rice along from Singapore, Wee Nam Kee Indonesia is looking forward to fulfill Indonesian’s appetite.
Welcome Wee Nam Kee to a closer area from my home hahaha.. The place is not big, but enjoyable enough for a family lunch or dinner. Typical Chinese modern restaurant with marble tables and beautiful lightings.
with choice of Steamed, Roasted or Soya Sauce Chicken
Quarter Chicken (for 2) 69k – Half Chicken (for 3-5) 115k – Whole Chicken (for 6-8) 215k
Of course their signature is the chicken. Whether you ordered steamed chicken or roasted chicken or soya sauce chicken, it’s your choice. But, I prefer the soya sauce chicken. It’s tastier, even though they had same texture meat. The difference was the flavour, of course. Well, you can half mix the chicken. Half steamed and half roasted. Half steamed and half soya sauce. I enjoyed the chicken very much.
Gizzard 6k Liver 6k
Sambal Noodles with Seafood 48k
I tried a bit, because it’s quite spicy. But I love the texture of the noodles. Tender and soft. And it was sweet, sour, spicy altogether. You can taste the mix of it in one slurp. And the flavour of the seafood was very rich. I guess this one was a recommended dish if you like spicy noodles.
Congratulations Wee Nam Kee for the 2nd outlet. Hope to see another outlets all around Indonesia.
