    Had breakfast at Loy Kee (Balestier) during the weekend. Ordered a set of American Breakfast and a bowl of porridge for my daughter. The American Breakfast consist of tiny sausages (those frozen food type), 2 eggs and a slice of ham ( taste horrible, must be kept in the fridge for too long period). My Wife can cook better. The porridge is too salty, my daughter can't even finish it.

    Definately will not go back again. Poor quality foods with high quality price. Rather go to the hawker center nearby to have breakfast next time.

      If you want to try Loy Kee Chicken Rice, I recommend that you should go to their Whampoa Hawker Center branch (Block 91, Whampoa Drive, #01-77/78). It was where Loy Kee originated and become famous. The price is much more reasonable and the standard is far more better. For $22, you can get a whole chicken.

      You can have cheap steamboat starting from $15 during dinner time. No GST for this branch.

        Was out one recent rainy Friday night to meet up with a couple of friends to do some catch up on our lives. Somehow, i haven't been making much time for them lately. The stresses of life maybe.

        Anyhow, we were supposed to eat at Founder's Bak Kut Teh but due to the notoriously famous long queue for a simple pork bone soup, we were forced to cross the road of death to get our food fix from Loy Kee Chicken Rice.

        Upon arriving, we were shown the secret seats around a round table near the back of the shop but quickly decided against eating at a place that smelled like the toilet.

        Outside, we ordered a barrage of food which included half a roast chicken, half white chicken, some kailan and deep fried beancurd to go with our chicken rice. the amazing thing is how the 6 of us chalked up a bill of $60 on chicken rice.

        The rice felt and tasted like it was soaked in oil and its even to the point that you could see the oil after you've eaten. It was that obscene.

        The half chicken which we ordered definitely did not feel like half a chicken at all. The meat that was present wasn't too bad. It was tender at the least and was pretty good with the soy sauce but you could get that pretty much everywhere else.

        The beancurd was plain bad with the skin being overly thick and the beancurd itself lacking taste and texture, the only saving grace was the thai style sweet and sour sauce which managed to salvage or mask the taste somewhat.

        The Kailan was normal at best. Overly oily and salty.

        If given a choice, its somewhere i won't return to for sure.
