Wee Nam Kee Hainanese Chicken Rice Restaurant, United Square

I haven't been eating at Wee Nam Kee for years so we decided to check out their current location (#01-08 United Square, 101 Thomson Road) since they had just shifted from the original Novena Ville not to long back.

The queue was pretty long, service was still trying to gain its own footing and the prices were much higher than I had expected. In the end, the chicken rice turned out to be just passable. I don't think the boiled/steamed chicken are in the same leagues as Boon Tong Kee, and certainly have nothing on Sin Kee.  It was just not smooth or even tender enough (a little too chewy sometimes) for a start and made me wonder what made so many people queue for them. If I have craving for chicken rice in the vicinity again, I'm sure I'll like it better at Big Bird with their ferocious chilli sauce just around the corner. Another place I can cross off my list.
