Lee Hong Kee Restaurant is a popular and synonymous restaurant to many for its 'Standing Chicken' or 'Duk Tuk Kai' dish. Nevertheless, I was also one of the curious lot wanting to check out this special chicken dish. I had the pleasure of trying out this on special invite by my foodie friends who suggested that we should check out this place for our recent CNY gathering.
So there you have it. This famous chicken dish was served on upright manner, being held in place with a sharp long stainless skewer. Looking stunning and elegantly fried, it was all great fun for that splendid moments of Instagramming pleasure.
This standing roast came with DIY tools to dissect the chicken before eating. Scissors and plastic disposable gloves were provided for those looking to have some fun and pure pleasure of operating on this chicken dish.
Taste wise, there was nothing to shout about. Well fried, the skin was delightfully crispy and light. The meat tasted average, just like any ordinary fried or roast chicken. I have to say that was quite a skinny chicken, not much meat though and was hardly enough to be shared by 9 of us that day.
Anyway, it's good selling point and sales gimmick, bravo to those who came out with this brilliant idea. These chickens were selling like hot cakes that day and have to be pre-ordered in advance.
**Many hands makes light work**
Well, overall it was an awesome treat. As usual the younger ones were having fun dissecting or dismembering the chicken into unimaginable mess while the seniors were craving it slowly with their experienced deft hands.
The standing chicken can be quite good fun at any dinner table. Here's a picture of me - Auntie Lilly can't resist but to take a shot at the fun looking chicken dish!
