Soy Sauce Chicken has become popular in Singapore recently because of a little book published by a tyre manufacturer. We do not know the history of soy sauce chicken but we reckon Hai Kee or 海记 must be one of the early purveyors of soy sauce chicken rice in Singapore. Hai Kee 海记 traces its heritage to a stall in Upper Cross Street started in the 1950s. Today Hai Kee has a flagship restaurant in Chinatown Point and several chicken rice stalls. There is a new outlet in the Bai Nian Foodcourt at Viva Business Park.
The full name of the restaurant in Bedok Point is “香香百年台湾味 – Xiang Xiang Traditional Taiwanese Cuisine since 1916“; and its Facebook Page says that Xiang Xiang is “a 102 years old traditional Taiwanese eatery”. The casual diner in the small Bedok mall is in fact a fairly new one but, apparently, its food is cooked following recipes that have been passed down from more than a century ago.
