Joining the locals at Redhill Market food centre to queue for Hua Kee's famous chicken rice on a Sunday morning.
Our plate of half a poached chicken. Very reasonably priced at SGD14 with two plates of rice with complimentary soup and sauces.
The chicken chopped in large chunks was cooked slightly pink. I like chicken in large chunks as it keeps the natural juices and flavours in the meat.
The chicken was tender, juicy and had a nice chicken flavour. The savoury sweet flavour from the watery dressing sauce was very slight. I like it that the "chickeny" flavour at Hua Kee is distinct.
The tender meat had a gentle chewy bite. I like Hua Kee's chunky chicken with skin and bone on.
The rice had very mild chicken aroma, fluffy, the grains separate easily and was not overly greasy.
Spicy sour chili sauce and savoury sweet dark soy sauce. No ginger dip.
The most nicely sliced cucumbers that I've seen at any chicken rice stall or restaurant. Very tasty as the savoury sweet dressing sauce clung to the sides of the crunchy slices of refreshing cucumber.
The pesky uninvited blogger hung around after eating and managed to persuade the busy stall holders to pause a moment for a picture ;-p
Mr Lim the second generation owner with his mum Mdm Tan who together with her husband founded Hua Kee over 30 years ago.
The queue was still long after we finished eating. Regulars here said the chicken will sell out at 1:00 pm and drumsticks around 11:00 am.
Redhill Market is just a short 3-minute walk from Redhill MRT station. Convenient parking around the market and food centre is plentiful in the nearby HDB carparks.
