Homegrown peranakan food chain Lee Wee & Brothers has been around for 19 years. They set up a stall along Old Airport Road, and at that stall, their mother imparted to the brothers, the family heritage recipes. This Peranakan family-run business has just opened a new outlet at ION Orchard. And yes, this outlet is HALAL. Lee Wee & Brothers has 6 halal-certified outlets islandwide.
This outlet is a take-away outlet. There are a few standing tables nearby which you can use to eat while standing. A grab and go kind of thing. Avoid peak period as that tables will definitely be full most of the time.
Lee Wee & Brothers launched their own rendition of Laksa (S$5.990), a popular slurp-worthy staple across Singapore. And the other must-try signature is their Nasi Lemak (from $4.50). What I enjoyed the most is the Curry Chicken (S$5.30).
As a malay borned lady with Peranakan blood, I miss my MAMA curry chicken at times. And this Curry Chicken reminds me of her and my Peranakan family history. Not the typical malay or indian kind of curry. Totally has its own unique taste that will linger in your tongue for quite some time.
