The Best Hainan Chicken in VanCity

I think the best Hainan Chicken in the city by far can be found at MamaLees. This hidden gem is located  near West Broadway and Macdonald. I don’t live in the area but it’s not too far from downtown Vancouver, so I do sometimes make a trip just to have a some mamalee chicken! According to their website, the founder Betty came to Canada in 1990 from Malaysia and it was originally called Cafe D’Lite. In 1995 tragedy struck and Betty became partially paralyzed after a car accident and her health has never been the same. Tragedy struck again in 2005 when they were forced to relocated and even considered closing down due to Betty’s health. Everytime I go to MamaLee I see Betty there working hard still in the kitchen. I can taste all the hard work she puts into the dishes! I highly respect her. The prices are extremely reasonable. I usually order the large Hainan Chicken with rice. It’s under $14. Come by and check this place out ASAP! warning: this place can be packed during dinner time.
