Today’s post about our Hong Kee Villa chicken rice delivery by Foodpanda (宏记食家乐园海南鸡饭) is a bit different from our usual circuit breaker home delivery stories. Some have asked why do we seem to only order from familiar restaurants. So I decided to be adventurous and try Hong Kee Villa, a restaurant from the Foodpanda list which I have never heard of.
All I know about Hong Kee Villa Chicken Rice is what is contained in the Foodpanda order page. Most relevant to me was the fairly reasonable prices, a 4.4/5 review rating and free delivery! We placed an order for a signature set meal ($7.65), a premium BBQ char siew rice set ($7.60) and a Thai style tofu ($4.60).
Our Hong Kee Villa Chicken Rice Delivery
The Foodapanda delivery arrived punctually at the scheduled time. The packages including the soups were in good condition. The only problem was that the Thai tofu had been left out! After giving our feedback later in the day Foodpanda provided us with a $4 voucher. Not an ideal solution, but better than nothing I suppose.
The chicken rice set was quite average, some pieces of chicken, vegetables on chicken rice. We were not impressed by the chicken. The rice was not bad. The black bean chicken soup was the best component of the set. It has a nice, almost homemade soup feel.
We preferred the char siew rice set. The char siew was not fatty and had an interesting taste which reminded us of lup cheong (dried preserved Chinese sausages). There was a choice of fried egg or salted egg on the options list. But they apparently had run out of fried egg and we were provided with half a salted egg. It was quite an unusual but interesting item to have with char siew rice. If we have to order again from Hong Kee Villa, we will probably order this again rather than the chicken rice.
