Loy Kee Chicken Rice

Loy Kee was once famous for its Hainanese Chicken Rice cuisine back in the 90s as they were  voted for the best selling chicken rice in Singapore that had met the quality, satisfaction and standard from its patrons. Back then, Loy Kee Chinese Rice Franchise Stalls was seen almost everywhere and thus their presence was made known so as their reputation.

Till today, we are still able to have a feel of how a Traditional Hainanese Chicken Rice Feels like but unfortunately not many were left. I guess those that can survived with the franchise, their standards should be there.


There were 2 Loy Kee Stalls in Balestier. I was recommended to the Hawker's instead of their premium outlet as my friend thinks that this stall tastes better. Let's go!

Having occupying 2 stall units in Whampoa Makan Place, one would have thought their business would be good. Anyway, the stall is manned by some folks. The lady and man who had served us was friendly.

Soup was light but tasty and packs a good chicken aroma throughout.

Chicken Soup for the Soul :)


The Plate

The water boiled Bok Choy was sufficiently tasty with oyster sauce and fried shallots. Not over greasy and I simply loves the crunch!

Vegetables (Boy Choy) with Oyster Sauce $3

Half chicken meat was soft and tender, maintaining a good quality standard. I like the sweet and sour Ah Char Taste that was tucked by the side of the plate. Yum Yum!

Half Chicken for $11

Chicken was succulent and complemented with their daily home-brewed garlic chilli, hand grounded ginger and the piquant dark soy sauce that was easily accessible from the condiments rack given.

Most of the chicken rice has too much sesame oil added. Unlike Loy Kee's their rice was fragrant and not that oily.

Overall, I find that Loy Kee serves a reasonable comfort food and most important of all, it's delicious and wallet friendly.
