I have been wanting to try the Soy Sauce Chicken along Upper Cross Street for the most time. When I reached the place, I was thrown in a dilemma. There are two Soy Sauce Chicken eatery along Upper Cross Street, Chew Kee and Chiew Kee. Which should I go? That is when the handy smartphone comes in play and we searched online for the answer. In exact fact, a quarrel between the elder sis and younger brother resulted in the split. The elder sis remains at the original stall at 8 Upper Cross Street while the younger brother relocated further down the road at 32 Upper Cross Street. It seems like the voices online favour the younger brother's stall more which is Original Chiew Kee Noodle House.
Yellow Egg Noodle 4/5
Kway Teow 3.5/5
We ordered the Soy Sauce Chicken Yellow Egg Noodle ($3.50) and Soy Sauce Chicken Kway Teow ($3.50). It is usually served with the chicken on top of the noodles but we have requested it to be separated. I like the yellow egg noodle more for its springy texture and delightful bite.
Soy Sauce Chicken 4.2/5
The star has to be the Soy Sauce Chicken. The light brown chicken skin was well infused with the soy sauce sweetness and the chicken was really moist and tender. Even the sauce itself has a nice subtle sweetness from the soy sauce but not overpowering.
Dumpling Soup 3.5/5
I also ordered an extra bowl of Dumpling Soup ($5) to go with the noodles. The dumpling is of decent size and stuffed with delectable fillings.
Throughout my meal at Original Chiew Kee Noodle House, I have observed the uncle behind the stall chopping non stop. It was quite amusing to see the number of chicken he has chopped. Their business is really good with constant stream of customers. Good thing is they have 2nd floor seating too.
