I had to attend a certain album launching event in Glorietta 2 earlier. I also remembered that Glorietta 2 has a Wee Nam Kee branch there, so I took the opportunity to visit the place, as well as to check out the mall’s new wing.
I did a little bit of research online, and learned that the architecture/interior is very different compared to the Wee Nam Kee stalls in Singapore. According to the Wee Nam Kee PH Facebook page, their branch in Glorietta is the biggest one (so far).
Another reason why I wanted to eat at Wee Nam Kee was because of their Yellow Chicken Festival. As you can see, Yellow Chickens are also known as the “Wagyu of chickens”. The chickens that they use are also imported from Malaysia! The promo is only available until the end of June, so if you want to grab the chance to try their sumptuous Yellow Chicken, then head on over to the nearest Wee Nam Kee branch before it’s too late! ^^
We ordered two types of chicken: The Steamed Yellow Chicken, and the Roasted Hainanese Chicken. We also tried their Chicken Rice and Steamed Fried Rice.
I did a little bit of comparison between the two, and I have to say that I preferred the Yellow Chicken more. The meat is more tender and had a lot of flavor. Unlike the regular Hainanese chicken, I can eat the Yellow Chicken without the dipping sauce.
The only thing that bothered me about my meal is that I had to chew carefully because of all the little bones found in both chicken dishes.
Aside from our Hainanese chicken-fest, we also tried the Honey Crispy Squid. I am very, very finicky when it comes to squid. In fact, the only squid dish that I can eat is calamari, and sometimes I can’t even finish an entire plate coz I tend to feel queasy. But this? It’s amazing!!! The squid really was crispy, with a sweet tangy flavor and a nice salty aftertaste.
My dessert: I had the Warm Roti with milk tea sauce. It wasn’t so bad, but I was expecting our roti to be a bit softer and fluffier. And the milk tea dipping sauce tasted quite bland.
Other stuff on the menu: Signature dishes (Chicken rice, Roasted delights), soup, rice toppings, tofu, beef, pork, crabs, seafood, rice, vegetables, noodles/noodles in soup, beverages, and desserts.
I would like to come back so I can try their other dishes. Overall, my dining experience here was great. ^^
