Today is a red-letter day and to wow your special someone, Wee Nam Kee plays Cupid. Start your meal with Wee Nam Kee’s Pork Spring Roll Bouquet appetizer, slender spring roll stalks stuffed with lean ground pork meat in an elegant serving vase.  Then lavish her with the luxurious flavors of the resto’s premium Hainanese Yellow Hong Kong Chicken and the fiery Sambal Fried Rice with dried shrimp, squid, fish fillet, and spring onions in Singapore’s spicy sambal sauce.

Then play it smooth with Wee Nam Kee’s signature Cereal Prawns, Black Tiger prawns sauteed in crispy fried sweet and crunchy cereal grains with chopped chili. Cool it down with the new Strawberry Passionfruit Cooler made of exotic and refreshing tropical passionfruit juice blended with a sweet strawberry syrup, bubbly soda water, and ice.
