Why Boon Tong Kee is special ?

- Fragrant Chicken Rice (SGD$0.80 each), with their signature Soft-boiled Chicken (SGD$15.00). The chicken is well-oiled but not greasy; it is succulent and juicy in its freshness. The pairing with fragrant ginger-garlic infused rice is good comfort food but not in-your-face impressive


- The Spinach with Assorted Egg (SGD$10.00) dish for some balance. The spinach is cooked soft and tender, the gravy well-flavored with 3 types of eggs - chicken egg, century egg and salted egg


- The mandatory Crispy Fried Beancurd (SGD$6.00) with a gorgeous golden outlook, a very crispy exterior and melt-in-your-mouth interior, like molasses literally. The palate loves it - imagine biting into something that literally crumbles and melts in your mouth in a heap of deliciousness; the sensation is simply amazing

The pickled vegetables and wet tissues cost $$$ so ask the staff to keep them. Pictures and review of chicken rice at http://sparklette.net/food/boon-tong-kee-chicken-rice/

Besides Chicken Rice, I like the raw fish slices, deep fried tofu, baby kailan, and 豬腸粉.

They charge for the peanuts and wet tissue....just give it back to the waitress right away, so they don't charge you for it, and don't forget to check your bill.

Crispy bean curd is awesome

Came here around midnight to soothe a budding cold. Their fish maw soup was heaven-sent and the signature boiled chicken and chicken rice were just great. Love how they are open until 430am. No queues when we ate there, but the ground level was still nearly full with a good sort of crowd (families, travelers catching red eye flights). Service was very fast and surprisingly friendly. Can't wait to eat there again.

I tried many chicken rice before and definitely this one I consider as the best. 4.5 sgd for 1 portion chicken rice with veggie and generous portion of a melted in your mouth chicken. I am in chicken rice heaven.

Boon Tong Kee is, and always has been my favorite place for a good chicken rice meal, because of the excellent service, good variety of food, quality of food and comfortable ambience. Hence, when *Faye and the hubby were in town, this was the place to bring them for some local delicacy.Then each had a bowl of fragrant Chicken Rice (SGD$0.80 each), with their signature Soft-boiled Chicken (SGD$15.00). The chicken was well-oiled but not greasy; it was succulent and juicy in its freshness. The pairing with fragrant ginger-garlic infused rice was good comfort food but not in-your-face impressive (could it be because this is Cantonese style instead of Hainanese style?), but nonetheless it was delicious enough we finished every single grain.Next, we had the Spinach with Assorted Egg (SGD$10.00) dish for some balance. The spinach was cooked soft and tender, the gravy well-flavored with 3 types of eggs - chicken egg, century egg and salted egg.Last but not least, we had the mandatory Crispy Fried Beancurd (SGD$6.00) with a gorgeous golden outlook, a very crispy exterior and melt-in-your-mouth interior, like molasses literally. The palate loves it - imagine biting into something that literally crumbles and melts in your mouth in a heap of deliciousness; the sensation was simply amazing.For full review and more photographs, please feel free to visit:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/12/lunch-at-boon-tong-kee-chicken-rice.html

Famous chicken rice shop in Singapore. It's a MUST to try their steam boiled chicken & clay pot soup. Don't bother on the seafood menu. As the sign says, it's a chicken rice shop ;)
