[HD videos below] Chicken rice may not come from Singapore, but the simple yet world-famous Hainanese dish could well be described as a national favourite. Discussing where to buy the best chicken rice in Singapore with a local, is akin to asking an Englishman where to buy the best fish and chips, or an Italian the best pasta - it is a debate that has no end.

 Taste is relative, and what may appeal to one person, could well fall short of culinary excellence to another. There are so many factors involved, some may concentrate purely on the food, while for others, price, decor, ambiance or the attitude of staff may play a greater role collectively or individually.

 There are those that do claim to offer the best chicken rice, some have even gone so far as to unofficially incorporate it into their name, but there is one gentleman located opposite Novena Church in Singapore that makes no such claim. He, despite feeding Singapore's hunger for chicken rice for over 22 years, is far too modest to place that label on himself, and yet if there were a crown for the best chicken rice in Singapore, he would undoubtedly be one of the main favourites for the title.

Mr. Wee Nam Kee, today at 72 years of age, knows lot more than just a thing or two about making the best chicken rice. Now, he has stepped back a little and his son, Junior, runs the business. In the video interview below, we talk to Mr. Wee Nam Kee about what makes his chicken rice so special, his business and his exciting regional expansion plans that will soon kick off the Philippines followed by Indonesia.

Is Wee Nam Kee the Chicken Rice King? Quite possibly, and with his latest expansion plans well underway, his empire is growing rapidly. So, whether you live in Singapore or are just visiting, make sure you make at least one culinary stop at what is a chicken rice legend in Singapore, you won't be disappointed.
