Loy Kee

Posted on November 15, 2006 | 9 comments

2 weeks ago, We visited this restaurant at La Piazza Kelapa Gading. Loy Kee is originally from Singapore and claimed to be the best chicken rice restaurant. The place was very crowded when we arrived, so we decided to hang out at Tea Gallery first and returned an hour later. We ordered: “friendly plate” (for 2 person) 40K, which consists of 2 bowls of hainanese chicken rice, a plate of hainanese and roasted chicken, stir-fried vegetables and 2 bowl of clear soup. The hainanese chicken rice was quite different from what I had tasted before. It used long grain rice, so the resulting chicken rice was not sticky or oily at all. The chicken was only so so, but the worst part was the service. Our drinks didn’t arrive until we almost finished our meal, and we had to ask several times for our tea and chilly sauce.

    Gue dah kesana sih beberapa kali. I like the rice and the chicken is alright i guess. A bit on the expensive side i guess. The service can get pretty bad, i guess you just have to keep on nagging to get your order or they don’t serve you. Where do you think is the best place for Chicken Rice Jen? Yang halal tapi ya.

    Hai Jenz,salam kenal.
    Iya tuh, waktu pas baru2 buka, aku kesana krn penasaran.org sampe rela antri.trus aku sempet liat websitenya jg kyknya yummy bgt tuh rice chicken.
    Tau nya sih : rasanya biasa aja ya.
    Trus aku sempet pesen bubur ayamnya. ih, encer banget.
    Mie nya juga aneh rasanya ๐Ÿ˜›
    Kesan pertama : nunggu makanan keluar kok lama bgt ya. bisa 30-45 menit kalo ga salah. alamak. ga kebayang tuh orang2 yang masih rela antri,bisa kelaperan duluan. hehehe…

    i think the food was okay and service was fine though the price was a lil bit unreasonable.
    but guess what…., i went there again last week and the friendly pack for 2 became IDR 55,000 from IDR 40,000.
    aiyoooooo, too much yaar….
    kata orang jawa “koe mau jualan apa rampok?”
    wont go back again. even the SGD3 chicken rice on some foodcourts in sg is much much better.

    Sorry, I don’t this place has the best Hainam Chicken. My mom makes much better Hainam chicken rice than this one. I think the so called Singapore Hainam chicken rice is over rated. Fyi, the chicken rice at JL. Semarang Medan is much better than this one.
