Wee Nam Kee

Before leaving Manila, I thought I had to try out Wee Nam Kee. It was rapidly gaining popularity so I knew I had to try it. It was, I believe a weekday, at around 5PM in Ayala Triangle. Since it was still early, we were able to secure seats. As I've heard, it gets too crowded in the evenings and you have to brave long queues to get yourself a seat. It was a good thing that we didn't have to waste much time.

Inside the restaurant, they made it look like you're in the middle of a street. For the viands, we ordered a medium sized steamed chicken which was good for 2 and cereal prawns. Steamed chicken tasted a bit bland for me, should have tried the roasted chicken instead. Cereal prawns tasted great, loved the cereal flakes. It could have been better only if they had taken out the shrimp shells already.

Steamed Chicken
P248 (if I remember it correctly :P)
Cereal Prawns
P375 / 4pcs
There was nothing really special about this reastaurant. I even find it a bit expensive. I've tried out a few versions of Hainanese Chicken Rice, steamed or roasted, and I can say nothing beats the one served in Raffles Hospital. :-P
