Boon Tong Kee, Ang Mo Kio

Boon Tong Kee, Ang Mo Kio

Dinner at Boon Tong Kee (#01-1194, 233 Ang Mo Kio Ave 3, tel : +65 6457 2696). They're one of the more eminent if not the most recognized name for chicken rice. They're okay - lots of good ones around on this sunny island. The location of this restaurant in Ang Mo Kio looked familiar...did it used to be Uncle Leong in the past?

Anyways, what's not a secret is that they do cze char other than chicken rice.

Boon Tong Kee, char siew

What we didn't expect was the char siew they positioned together with the appetizers that some Chinese restaurants do and charge you for. We didn't refuse because it looked good. It actually tasted not bad. Gonna come try them again to be sure. Decent caramelization with a sweet glaze and it was a cut that had both meat and fat.

Boon Tong Kee, stir fried kailan

Obligatory vegetables of stir fried kailan. Not one of the better quality kailan around so they're obligatory on hindsight.

Boon Tong Kee, crispy tofu

I had these crispy skin tofu previously at their restaurant at Boon Keng. Yes, that was quite a while back. While I thought they were nice then, today's impression seemed even better.

Boon Tong Kee, prawn toast

Prawn toasts were not bad. Prices have gone up a dollar a piece since they last time we've had them. Which was a long while back.

Boon Tong Kee, chicken

Chicken's okay. Nothing much to fault and like I've said, there's plenty of good ones to go around.

Boon Tong Kee, chicken livers

A side of creamy chicken livers.

Boon Tong Kee, sliced fish bitter gourd black bean sauce

Did not realize that their sliced fish and bitter gourd dish was done with black bean sauce when we ordered it. A garlicky black bean sauce at that. What a pleasant surprise.

Boon Tong Kee, chicken rice

The rice was pretty much how I remembered them. Decent quality chicken rice with a light flavour and not one of the better ones I've had. They've been consistent with that so I guess it's the way they roll with their rice.

Boon Tong Kee, orh nee

I like the orh nee they serve here. Thick and creamy.
