The Sin Kee Famous Chicken Rice has moved away from the “Margaret Drive Food Centre”. It has now moved a few steps away from the ‘furniture shop’ at 38 Commonwealth Avenue.
Colleague and I came here because we heard it has moved. We were looking forward to some nice chicken rice.
It has moved to a bigger place, a fully air-conditioned place. They have even ventured into selling many other things too. Curry Fish Head, Braised stuff, etc… It is like a mini food court now.
We were not very pleased with it though. We have never felt so ‘pushed’ before! They were trying to push us to order things we don’t want to eat. (We just want chicken. We went there just to eat chicken rice. LOL…) We were thinking it’s probably the higher rent they have to pay now? They are no longer at the food centre, paying low rent.
This was the half a ‘white chicken’ we had. $12.
It’s ok lah. But if you compare to what they had in my 2008 post, you can definitely see the difference.
The half a roast chicken. $12
We always order ‘half black half white’ because between the 5 of us, we like different kinds of chicken.
The bean sprouts.
Don’t laugh! We all think the bean sprouts is the best of the things on the table. Oh, not forgetting the their chilli sauce and mince ginger. LOL…
And the chicken rice.
Somehow it was not as satisfying as before. We hope it’s only last Friday that it was like this. My colleague who stays nearby said that it is very packed at night though. Maybe the chicken taste better at night?
It has also gone up in price. 2 half chicken (ie 1 chicken), 1 plate of bean sprouts and 5 plates of rice. It’s was $6 per person with prices rounded down.
