I walked past this shop when I was in Balestier shopping for lights and toilet accessories. I did not realise that was the famous Loy Kee chicken rice because I thought the shop would be a lot more rundown because of its long history.

Apparently, the owner thought that the history should stay with the taste of the food and not the appearance of the shop. The chicken rice in this shop lived up to its reputation and although the shop helpers were mainly mainland China people but the kitchen may still be staffed by the old local staff. As long as the kitchen is not taken over by mainland China people, the tastes will still be preserved. For those that did not know, Hainanese Chicken Rice did not come from China, it was a local invention so mainland China people will not know how to cook.
