On a visit to Trinoma, my husband and I decided to try out Wee Nam Kee. Being a fan of Hainanese Chicken, we thought it was a must to try it out. Wee Nam Kee in Trinoma looks a lot better than the Wee Nam Kee Hainenese chicken house in Novena, Singapore.
The place was pretty full on a weekday. We browsed through and menu and ordered their bestsellers.
We had the green seafood soup which was typical of Chinese restaurants locally. Each bowl is around Php 75.00
We ordered the roasted pork (lechon kawali) at Php 220 per dish. It was crunchy, taste similar to Singapore hawker stalls. It was served cold. My daughter particularly liked it.
We ordered the signature steamed chicken dish 1/2 order is Php488 and is good for 3 people. I was surprised that my daughter liked it. The manner of cooking, the presentation is good. I think my issue was with the chicken. The chicken was grown locally. For some reason, the chickens in Singapore taste different from the chickens here.
Of course, one must never eat the chicken without the heady mix of ginger, chili sauce and dark soya sauce.
The meal was generally enjoyable, but nothing beats eating the original dish in Singapore.
