Wee Nam Kee Hainanese Chicken Rice @ Novena Ville

Novena Ville, yup, this is the place that was sold en bloc mid this year. Not sure what are its redevelopment plans so my friend suggested that we should go and eat at this chicken rice place while it's still there. Hmm.. but Wee Nam Kee is everywhere... Anyhow, this shop is usually crowded but recently the crowds seemed to favour Ssikkek Korean Grill BBQ more.

The waitress will come by to take the orders. Our group of 5 pax ordered half-half roast chicken and steamed chicken, a small plate of mixed internal organs, small sambal kangkong and a tofu hotplate to share.

Service was pretty fast. The soup and drinks came first, then the rest of the stuffs followed.

The guy in our group, liked the kangkong alot. It was less spicy than anticipated, actually.

Liked the roasted chicken more than the steamed version. The breast meat for the steamed chicken would be nice if it was a little bit more tender and smooth. Beware of the skins though, it was quite salty!

How about the rice? Hmm, noted that the colour of the chicken rice here looked somewhat different here as compared to other chicken rice shops. Taste wise, it was alright and not too oily.

We didn't get the mixed part, so got the cashier to take it out of the bill. Total bill came up to $49+.
