Wee Nam Kee is nothing new to anyone who loves to eat out. It has always been the go-to restaurant of one who craves for some good Hainanese Chicken with Hainanese Chicken Rice and Cereal Prawns. These are my Wee Nam Kee staples and have long been my favorite dishes there. But guess what? Wee Nam Kee just recently launched a new set of dishes on their menu for their All New Culinary Treasures of Singapore lineup – About 20+ new authentic Singaporean dishes for you to choose from and enjoy eating.
New dishes at Wee Nam Kee
During my visit with my husband and some friends from our little foodie group, we got to sample a good number of these new dishes from Wee Nam Kee’s All New Culinary Treasures of Singapore starting off with my new favorite refreshing drink – Cucumber Lime Refresher (Php135.00)
A delightful drink, perfect on a hot day or when you’ve had too much spicy food. Cucumber and lime really goes well together.
Crispy Mantou Bread with Condensed Milk (Php78.00) was served as an appetizer.
You would think that a sweet appetizer is a bad idea before the main course, right? Wrong! The sweetness from the condensed milk will all the more make you crave for something savory and umami afterwards. The mantou bread reminds me of bicho-bicho sans the white sugar. It is perfectly fried, giving the bread a nice crisp on the outside while keeping it moist and soft on the inside. Dip the bread on the condensed milk and enjoy! Don’t wait too long before eating it, though. This Wee Nam Kee appetizer is best eaten straight from the kitchen!
Prawn Paste Chicken Wings (Php218.00)
It was the first time for me to try something like this and I absolutely loved it! The prawn paste was not overpowering, yet you know that it’s undeniably there which adds an interesting taste to the wings. A simple Wee Nam Kee dish that’s just so spot on when it comes to flavor!
Hainanese Chicken Curry Noodles (Solo: 225.00 / Sharing: 368.00)
Wee Nam Kee’s version uses chicken with the chicken stock and curry incorporated together giving it a more savory soup. This Wee Nam Kee dish has just the right amount of spice and heat for those not really into spicy food. Since you can’t have enough of this dish’s delicious broth, it comes with an extra pot filled with soup! Cooked and presented beautifully! Thumbs up!
Cashew Coffee Spareribs (Php298.00)
Coffee and cashew are just some of my personal favorites. Wee Nam Kee has surprisingly created yet another delicious dish! Using Singapore kopi grounds and fresh cashew nuts giving this specialty a nice texture with unique flavors of sweet, salty, bitter and nutty. Another delightful dish that I will most definitely come back for!
Salted Egg Chinese Style Fried Chicken (Php295.00)
Pieces of crispy fried chicken coated in salted egg batter is a must try! Apart from it tasting fantastic, this Wee Nam Kee dish has an enticingly rough texture from the diced salted egg.
Stewed Pork Belly with Steamed Buns (Php365.00)
The steamed version of the Crispy Mantou buns which you can easily place slices of stewed pork belly, fresh wansoy and chopped nuts… Sweet, nutty and refreshing.
Wok-Fried Chicken with Cashews and Sun-dried Chili (Php270.00)
Chicken strips bathed in sweet and savory sauce topped with cashew nuts to add a deliciously subtle earthy and nutty flavor to remove any possible cloying taste that you might have afterwards. Full of flavor and full of punch!
Butterflied Tilapia with “Singapore” Chili Crab Sauce (Php385.00)
Not entirely photogenic but this fish dish is bursting with bold flavors. The Tilapia was fried to perfection sitting atop the chili crab sauce. Make sure to soak your cut up fish using the sauce to fully enjoy it. Fret not! The sauce’s spiciness level is tolerable enough for anyone to revel in!
But if you want rice instead of noodles, I recommend their Pineapple Fried Rice with Pork Floss (Php250.00). Not being biased here because I love Pineapple Fried Rice. Wee Nam Kee’s version is really good! It has mixed vegetables, roast pork, pineapples topped with sweet and spicy pork floss.
Our dinner didn’t abrupty end with the last of the main course dish’s arrival on our table. Naturally, everyone made sure to save some space for the Wee Nam Kee Buchi Platter!
This is not your typical Buchi because each of these Wee Nam Kee specialties are packed with either incredibly rich dark, white or milk chocolate. Sinful yet delicious and sooooo worth all the calories!
Hungry yet? After reading this, I’m sure you already are. Wee Nam Kee has 8 branches in the metro to satisfy your Singaporean dish cravings. There’s Ayala Triangle Gardens which my family and I frequent, Serendra, Glorietta 2, Alabang Town Center, Trinoma Mall, their newest branch at Fairview Terraces Mall and not to forget these two (2) branches very close to my place – Shangri-La East Wing and Promenade Greenhills. Woot! Woot!
No need to look any further because Wee Nam Kee is making sure their restaurants are close to everyone… Whenever, wherever.
Wee Nam Kee is A-O-Kee! Get it? 🙂
