For as long as Singaporeans could remember, Chicken Rice is the ubiquitous dish that placated growling stomachs in the most satisfying way. But in the 1960s, a new variant of this old favourite began to capture the hearts of both the young and old. Soya Sauce Chicken Rice, as it was called, was rich in taste and exuded a flavour that boasted its Hong Kong origins. Little did people know that in 1968 at a small hawker stall nestled in Toa Payoh, an innovative young chef was about to change all that.
By blending harmonious flavours familiar to Singaporeans, Lee Nam created the truly original Singapore Soya Sauce Chicken Rice. The sauce was more hearty and the thicken more succulent, yet it was irresistibly healthy. It was a recipe that appealed to locals instantly, and it didn't take long before this gastronomic delight became a staple part of many Singaporeans' lives.
As Lee Nam's stall grew into a restaurant, simple lunch fares for customers became occasions for celebrations and family bonding. Lee Fun Nam Kee became a home away from home—where life and good food are enjoyed amidst a comfortable setting and warm friendly service.
With son David Lee at the helm, Lee Fun Nam Kee today continues to serve customers with the same passion and authenticity as it did for over half a century. With each new customer, the Lee Fun Nam Kee family grows. But one thing is certain. When it comes to celebrating the joys of life, everyone will always come home to Lee Fun Nam Kee.
