  • Boon Tong Kee: Mid-range fame

    i don't really think its super nice. there's too much hype. but dont catch me wrong, when i say i dont think its super nice, it also means that i dont think that its not nice. i would say its average-nice. chicken rice standards are quite high in singapore, basically everywhere you can spot a chicken rice stall easily. if it taste yucky, your shop is likely to fold in max 3mths.

    for convenience sake, yup go to this restaurant rather than scout all over forums on where for the best chicken rice. stars like to have chicken rice from that shop too. why? dont ask me why. they prob only thinks that SG has that one Chicken rice shop only.

    Favorite Dish: what else but chicken rice itself? i recommend for all chicken rice, ask for the chicken drumstick or thigh meat which is more tender and juicier, but some say fatter too. if you like drier bite,ask for the breast meat. otherwise, just leave it to fate and see which part are you allocated with. drumstick/thigh meat rice cause more than average plate, well, 1 chicken only has 2 legs..

    dont forget the chilli sauce and dark soy sauce too, 2 must-haves for singapore's chicken rice. Oh ya, nice to have the sauce, poured over your chicken, to have it mixed with rice too. makes the rice even nicer! ask for more rice only if you dont have enough.

    Boon Tong Kee: A sad example of declining standards

    by tanseaway Written Feb 20, 2006

    This used to be one of the best places for chicken rice in Singapore (the unofficial national dish).

    Unfortunately, it is living off its past glories and has seriously declined in its standards. There are many places which are far better all over Singapore - this one is to be avoided unless it's 4am and you are desperate...

    Favorite Dish: Chicken rice

    Boon Tong Kee: Yummiest Hainanese Chicken Rice

    Just down the street from where we currently stay, there's this place that we stumbled upon, while searching for dinner one day. Situated in between a row of hawker places with local food, lies an open, yet airconditioned restaurant called Boon Tong Kee. It, in my opinion, and the rest of my family's, has the best Hainanese Chicken Rice we've tasted. It comes with two sauces -ginger tasting soy + chilli (your option to use, of course!) I crave for it every week! An order, if you dine in, will cost only around sg$6. We now usually walk in and order take-away, for only sg$4.
