I can never silence my South East Asian stomach, and one night, it had a loud, giant urge for Singaporean chicken rice. As I believe my stomach and its needs are important, I promptly headed over to Wee Nam Kee in Nakano.
Steamed chicken (and rice in the background) !
Now, a chicken rice set cost me 1200 yen, which at this point of time is 15SGD, three times more than it would cost me back in Singapore. However, I happily paid because the chicken was yummy and tender. The whole set tasted pretty authentic, from the rice to the soup.
What made me take a trip down the memory lane of good ol’ Singapore was the condiments. Chilli, ginger and the thick black sauce! I promptly loaded up.
Boyfriend, ever the rice hater, went for noodles and roast chicken.
Goddamn, these noodles were delicious. Look at that roast chicken and that nice crispy skin. Boyfriend practically inhaled the whole plate up.
Anyway, if you’re looking for chicken rice in Tokyo, I’d recommend Wee Nam Kee. They have a few branches – website over here. I went to the one in Nakano Central Park which will probably be my go to spot since it’s close to my house.
Next, I’m going to try out Sin Tong Kee chicken rice in Ebisu and rate it against this!
