Back at Boon Tong Kee Little Gourmet

Boon Tong Kee Little Gourmet, chicken rice

It's been quite a long while since I was last here (425 River Valley Road). Ten and a half years. This place hasn't changed much at all. Which implies that these guys must be doing something right to still be relevant. Looking at back then has been epiphanic on how things are different now. But none of that rabbit hole today! 

Boon Tong Kee Little Gourmet, chicken

I've never noticed this previously but the chicken here is plated and served chopped up with nothing else but the pickled vegetables on the side. The soy sauce is then poured onto the chicken at the table. There's no sesame oil. Rice was pretty decent and their chilli was serviceable if not fantastic. Bird's respectably tender but there are better out there.

These fellas will never be in the same leagues as Sin Kee or Hua Kee but I suppose I'm glad they're still a pretty reliable source to turn to. The fact that they do late hours helps.
