Sin Kee Famous Cantonese Chicken Rice @ Holland Drive - The Famous Sin Kee Famous Chicken Rice Is Back


Remember the famous Sin Kee Famous Chicken Rice at Margaret Drive Food Centre and Mei Ling Food Centre? After Benson shut down his Mei Ling's stall last year, he went to help out at his brother, Niven's stall - Uncle Chicken Rice at The Bedok Marketplace for a while. Now, Benson is back on his feet, together with his young partner, they re-opened Sin Kee Famous Cantonese Chicken Rice at block 40 Holland Drive.

Quarter Chicken 4.2/5

We made a trip down to Holland Drive one afternoon to visit Benson and try his chicken rice. We ordered Quarter Chicken ($8), which is chopped to chunky pieces. This brought a smile to my face immediately, he has kept to the tradition of his father serving the chicken in chunky pieces. Unlikely many other chicken rice stalls that short changed their customers.

The chicken is poached to an enjoyable moist and tender texture with a drizzle of his own soy sauce concoction over it to enhance the flavour of the meat. A noticeable difference is the dipping sauces. Benson's ginger sauce is on the watery side while the chilli sauce lacks that slight tangy zest.


Be it Benson's Sin Kee Famous Cantonese Chicken Rice or Niven's Uncle Chicken,  I am glad that the two brothers have continued their father's tradition serving one of the best chicken rice in town since 1971. So if you miss the former Margaret Drive's chicken rice, you can go to either holland drive or simpang bedok to satisfy your craving.

  1. Sin Kee Famous Cantonese Chicken Rice is now known as Margaret Drive Chicken Rice (Since 1978) with the unmistakeable Chef Benson being part of the stall signage. Since the change of management in May 2019, the stall is still at the same coffee shop at Blk 40 Holland Drive but now occupies an inner position.
