Hock Kee Birds Nest Drink Review (Hougang Central)

Our visit to Hock Kee Birds Nest Drink was unplanned. We had our lunch in the vicinity and came by their stall by chance.

With our faint but fond memory of their bird’s nest drink peddled on the streets when we were young, we wanted to relive this memory. The two of us ordered their signature Traditional Birds Nest drink (M $3.00) to help us relive our memory and a Thai Milk Tea (M $3.00) to try out their new offering, separately. The brand was running a promotional campaign on Shopee at that time and each of us received a $2.00 discount off each of our drink.

After having a few sips of their bird’s nest drink, we found its taste very close to what we had when we were young. It  was also very similar to the taste of those bottled bird nest from the supermarkets. There was bits of “bird’s nest” in the drink but their texture was more like agar-agar than real bird’s nest. Their Thai iced tea was typical of the tea brewed using Cha TraMue’s tea leaves. However, the tea was rather diluted and was overshadowed by the milk and sugar in the beverage. 

In all, we rate the quality of their drinks a 2.5/5, their value for money a 3.5/5 (with Shopee’s $2 discount) and their service a 3/5. There is nothing to shout about their drinks and their prices are on the high side if there was no discount. Other than the sole purpose of reliving the memory of our childhood, we could not think of a good reason to patronise Hock Kee given the vast number of alternatives in this neighbourhood.
