Wee Nam Kee in Serendra, Fort Bonifacio Global City

We finally got to eat at Wee Nam Kee one Sunday last month. Hubby and I have attempted to do so quite a few times when first branch at Ayala Triangle Gardens opened but we never quite made it due to the ridiculously long queue. We figured that since a lot of time has passed since then, it was time to try again at their second branch in Serendra.

Since it was Sunday lunch time, the place was packed. I borrowed the above photo from the Wee Nam Kee Philippines Facebook Page because I could not take any decent ones when we went. There were too many people and the tables and chairs were in a bit of a disarray since the patrons went on to rearrange them to suit their groups’ sizes.

Anyhow, we had the lady outside list our name since the place was full. She said she would text us when we had a place. I was amused by their birdcage-like lighting fixtures.

After about thirty minutes of walking around Serendra, the lady finally texted us. The first thing I noticed upon sitting down was the sauces for the Hainanese Chicken.

I really love this ginger sauce that’s always served with Hainanese chicken. Good thing I can have as much as I want at Wee Nam Kee. 😀

I proceeded to order Wee Nam Kee’s signature Hainanese Chicken. You can choose if you’d like to have it steamed or roasted. I opted for the roasted version because I like the chicken skin crispy or else I can’t stomach it. Amazingly, the personal set which I ordered cost only P168. It comes with Hainanese chicken, Hainanese rice, and a bowl of clear soup. I dislike chicken but this is really delicious. Crispy skin, tender and juicy meat… wow. For the price you pay, this is really a steal!

Wee Nam kee Pork Chop Rice

Both of our kids opted for Wee Nam Kee Pork Chop Rice (P178, pictured above). Breaded pork cutlets similar to tonkatsu (crunchy outside and tender inside) are served with sweet and sour sauce plus a bowl of Hainanese rice. Both of them were happy with their order. 🙂

We also ordered Sambal Kangkong (P199, pictured above). Tasty with just the right level of spice, it goes very well with Hainanese rice.

Fookien Noodles (P205, pictured above) was a surprise. I honestly wasn’t expecting anything special but it’s perfectly al dente and flavorful. We all agreed it’s really really good.

Since we ordered Chili Crab with Fried Mantou Bread, we were served with a finger bowl and a pair of nut crackers we can use for the crab’s shell.

They charge a seasonal price per 100g for the crab and you get abour 4 pcs of it. Our crab looked impressive outside but inside the gigantic shell was actually very little meat. We complained and they gave us a discounted price for it. The chili sauce is sooo good though I ended up getting lots and lots of it so I can drench my mantou bread, haha!

These are the Fried Mantou Bread that come with the crab. Chewy and yummy, four pieces are too few! XD

Fresh Barley Juice at Wee Nam kee in Serendra

To wash down all the tasty food, I had Fresh Barley Juice (P55, pictured above). Slightly sweet and completely refreshing, it had grains of barley which were just a pleasure to chew on.

All in all we were very happy with our Wee Nam Kee experience. The food is amazing, prices are reasonable, and there is a wide menu selection so you’ll surely find something to suit your tastes. The only downside is the long line (still) but just go there early (as in opening time) and you should have no problem. We went at nearly 12nn so it was packed already. We did get seated after half an hour though so it wasn’t so bad.
