Notes from breakfast at Tong Kee Chicken Rice (東記雞飯)

Tong Kee Chicken Rice (東記雞飯), Tanglin Halt

Came to Tong Kee early meal. The stall opens at 10am. I reached a few minutes before and the proprietor said he needed another 5-10 to get his prep done. So the take away was that they're not a stickler for time.

Getting there at the opening hour also meant that some things might not be available yet. I was looking out for the livers and boiled eggs. They aren't ready in the early opening hours. So I ended up asking for a regular 鸡尾 plate. The proprietress suggested some char siew and roast pork and I though to myself, why not?

The roast pork and char siew are generally nothing to write home about. The brown caramel-y gravy that they give on the side made them taste better.

Between the brown gravy, chicken rice chilli and dark soya sauce, there's usually not enough rice in a single plate for me to use them all.
