I had my doubts when I first heard that Wee Nam Kee was opening in Manila.
But just like everyone else, I braved the long lines to give this import from Singapore a try.
A trip to Wee Nam Kee isn’t complete without ordering their specialty, Hainanese chicken.
|Steamed Chicken Medium (488php)|
Close enough to the flavors found in Singapore. Better than most white chicken served in Manila. Chicken is soft and has the right amount of fat.
On a different occasion, I ordered the chicken combination to try the roasted version:
|Chicken Combination (248php)|
The roasted chicken didn't taste any different from the steamed variety.
No chicken should be eaten without a dip in ginger or soy sauce.
|Chicken Rice (40php)|
Very flavorful. I don't eat rice but I managed to eat an entire bowl of chicken rice on my own.
|Cereal Prawns (375php)|
Another Wee Nam Kee must-try. Not oily and I love the generous coating of cereal each prawn had. The cereal coating is especially addicting.
|Steamed Prawns with Garlic Sauce (375php)|
I love the strong garlic flavors.
|Salt and Pepper Squid (250php)|
Fresh and light. Nothing out of the ordinary though.
Wee Nam Kee doesn't disappoint, giving us, Manila residents, a taste of Singaporean cuisine.
Wee Nam Kee is located at Ayala Triangle Gardens Ayala Avenue Makati.
