Lee Fun Nam Kee Chicken Rice & Restaurant

This was another of the BF's recommendations, as he's patronised this chicken rice stall since he was a kid. That's another facet of being in a relationship: Over time, you adopt your better half's favourite habits, TV shows, foods and restaurants as your own. Mostly because it's such a joy when both of you enjoy doing things together. Take us for example. The BF would never eat porridge as he considered it "sick-people-food". But, I love both Cantonese congee and Teochew porridge. Now that we're together, he's developed a love for porridge. It's the same with his developed love for crabs and junk food.

We ordered the Soya Sauce Chicken and Poached Chicken ($10), juicy, succulent white meat, smothered in luscious marinade. The soya sauce chicken half of the plate has a starchier, sweeter oyster sauce-based gravy, whereas the other half of the plate with the poached chicken has a watery, saltier light soy-based sauce.

The Rice ($0.60) was lightly flavoured with chicken stock and not too oily.

The Egg Noodles ($2) was undercooked, and reeked of an alkali aftertaste.

The Rice Noodles ($2) was a better option, silky and smooth.

The Shrimp Dumpling Soup ($5) was middling, and pales in comparison to the one at Chiew Kee.

I don't usually like bean sprouts with their heads and tails still intact, but their Bean Sprouts ($5) were amazingly addictive. It was blanched perfectly, soft yet crunchy. And I love the sesame oil and light soy gravy which doused the beansprouts.

The Oyster Sauce Kailan ($5), topped with cubes of crispy pork lard, was absolute sinful pleasure.

We also ordered some sweetened homemade Lime Juice ($1.80) to wash down all that oil and salt.

Please note that they do not have a menu here, but there really isn't much of a need for it because the menu's so limited anyway.
