Hai Kee Soy Sauce Chicken Rice @ Bedok North

DSC_4245 I grew up with chicken rice and there were many brands that played a part in my love for our national dish. Hai Kee started out as an eatery back in 1959 at Upper Cross Street.

The star of their menu is clearly soy sauce chicken and my years of eating Chicken Rice, the favourites have hovered around roast chicken mainly and rarely steamed chicken.

The set was definitely more than sufficient for two, there was a choice of Superior Soy Sauce Chicken, Char Siew, Roasted Pork, Char Siew and Roasted Pork for the protein and it came with soup, Oyster Sauce Vegetables and two bowls of chicken rice!


I would have expected a salty affair and it was actually balanced well. Delicately seasoned and doused in sauce but who can refuse such a tender plate of meat? Hai Kee has found a new fan in me for sure.

The chilli sauce itself is worth mentioning for one, fiery yet restrained. Not to mention that chicken rice, and I hardly cave into chicken fat rice but it was just too good to ignore.

Char Siew ($5)


Splashed with red marinate, this red hot looking dish looks a tad heavy handed in sauce but I thought it turned out really well. Meaty and fatty together but so delicious!

I ended up getting a Soy Sauce Chicken Rice ($4.50) takeaway because it was so good. At three sizes, small medium and large this gives diners more selection.







They have grown leaps and bounds since their humble days and if you are ever craving Hai Kee, they are available on foodpanda. The thing is they have so many franchises and I have heard mixed reviews but their Bedok North outlet is worth queueing for.
