Qi Wei Ji Bao’s specialty is Chinese claypot chicken, in all the wondrous forms this Singapore favourite can come in. The house signature at this Joo Chiat restaurant is the Qi Wei chicken claypot, either small or large with an optional two drumsticks and designed to be shared among up to four people. Then there’s the herbal chicken claypot soup which legend has it has curative properties, the Qi Wei spicy soup with duck and beer for a hot and heady dish, and the Qi Wei frogs’ legs claypot soup for a French Indo-Chinese delight. Located on Joo Chiat Road close to the intersection of Dunman Road, Qi Wei Ji Bao regularly fills up fast despite its long opening hours, so an advance reservation is strongly recommended if you want to avoid disappointment.
Back for the second time! Simply love it! Will be back for more again! Highly recommended! Do come and give it a try yourself! Awesome!
I had always patroned the Kovan outlet as it was closer to my home. But when a family member came down from Malaysia, this location seemed like a more convenient and central location for us to meet. We were not disappointed with the food - always yummy. The restaurant was not crowded but it did seem that they were a bit short-handed with one server and one chef in the kitchen. Will definitely be back again!
