Sin Kee Famous Cantonese Chicken Rice Now At Holland Drive
After the owner of Sin Kee famous chicken rice at Margaret Drive Food Centre passed on, his two sons Niven and Benson opened “Uncle Chicken” in Alexandra Village Food Centre and “Sin Kee Famous Chicken Rice” in Mei Ling Food Centre respectively. The brothers eventually shut down their stalls and last year, Benson went to work for Niven at Uncle Chicken Rice in The Bedok Marketplace.
About a month ago, Benson is back on his feet and re-opened “Sin Kee Famous Chicken Rice” at Holland Drive with his young partner. We braved the storm that day just to visit Benson, as well as to try the chicken rice. Benson was in a uplift mood that day, talking and laughing as he chopped our chicken rice. It’s quite a rare sight for me.
Nothing much changes, Benson still chopes the chicken in huge chunks. His movements are still clean and brisk, each piece of meat is tender and smooth in the mouth. He will leave the leftover bones from the chicken to prepare that soup, which is used to poach chickens and rice.
To be honest, the slightly aromatic rice is not how I like my chicken rice to be. I prefer the flavours to be more intense and oily but that’s my preference. For my husband who prefers something lighter in texture, this definitely works for him. The chilli is spicy and tangy done right with vinegar and lime, just the way we like it. While Niven’s ginger dip is more thick and strong, Benson’s version is more wet which is cooked using both old and young ginger.
