Wee Nam Kee (Ayala Triangle)
Known for its Hainanese Chicken, Wee Nam Kee is a Singaporean restaurant that started operation in Singapore's Novena District in 1989. It established its first international location in the Philippines in 2010 in Ayala Triangle, Makati City. It later on expanded to reach other places in the Metro which includes Trinoma, Serendra Piazza, Greenhills Shopping and Alabang Town Center among others.
Me and my work batch mates decided to have a little get together over lunch in Ayala Triangle. We ended up eating here at Wee Nam Kee since Kanin Club was not available. I let my officemates decide what to order since I am a bit late for lunch.
Our lunch for today includes their Steamed Hainanese Yellow Chicken, Sauteed Beef Fillet in Sate Sauce, Sweet and Sour Pork, Salt and Pepper Squid and their Wee Nam Kee Fried Rice.
Steamed Hainanese Yellow Chicken (P1,638.00), the Yellow Chicken is imported in Malaysia and it is color yellow mainly becuase if its diet. These chicken eat mainly yellow corn and they are mostly allowed to roam around in farms so their muscles will remain firm when cooked. This dish is a bit pricier than regular hainanese chicken on the menu. The chicken is tender and juicy and it is seasoned lightly. The main sauce for this is a mix of their ginger, chilli sauce and dark soya sauce. The chicken is not undercooked which is one of the main point that I checked when our chicken was served. This is masarap without reservations.
Sauted Beef Fillet in Sate Sauce (P395.00), the beef strips are tender and I think that there is too much Sate sauce in here. The dish is tasted a bit sweet for for. Personal rating is not masarap with reservations. Maybe I tasted more sauce than the beef itself and that it was too overwhelming for me.
Sweet and Sour Pork (P275.00), the sauce is good and also the pork is tender. I just noticed that the pork breading is too much that I ate less of the pork and more of the breading. Masarap with a bit of reservation, maybe a more pork less breading.
Salt and Pepper Squid (P290.00), a very simple dish that is pretty fair enough for me. The squid is well cooked and it is not rubbery. The breading is also mildly seasoned which is very fine for me. The vinegar and the breaded squid is a a match. Masarap without reservations.
Wee Nam Kee Fried Rice (P250.00), fried rice with eggs, asado, vegetables and shrimp. The asado tasted good as well as the whole fried rice itself. I think it just lacks eggs, asado , vegetables and shrimp. Nevertheless, this one is masarap with a bit of reservation.
Overall, the the lunch the we had with Wee Nam Kee is good. The food servings were good for a bout three to four people. Service is a bit below average for me and the staff were in the level of being not too friendly. My personal rating for the restaurant is a 3 out of 5.
