Tonight dinner we had imperial roast pork ribs, white chicken, tofu and spinach with salted eggs. The quality remains consistent. The chicken smoothness is better than the branch in AMK. The pork ribs were tasty, and so were the rest. The rice is fragrant. Very well patronized. Pricing wise is reasonable and service is good. Good place to bring friends and tourists as well to experience the chicken rice experience.

一家四口去了文東記,點了海南雞、扣肉包、金銀蛋莧菜和麥皮蝦。想再點多些,但侍應叔叔主動說已經夠吃,最後來了四碟,份量真不少,侍應叔叔好人又老實。一家吃了一啖海南雞,真的很滑很好味,絕對要推介給大家!再吃麥皮蝦,很香很趣,蝦也很海鮮,啖啖肉,一碟有6隻,大大隻。跟著的扣肉包又很出色。扣肉不肥但又好冧,多吃一件也不會覺得油。金銀蛋莧菜一碟咁平凡的菜色更加比到驚喜我們!菜很嫩、湯很好味!記得一定要叫桔仔水和薏米水,咁就真係完美!

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.

I always liked their Chee Cheong Fun. The Chee Cheong Fun was similar to the famous Chinatown Hawker Centre's stall, smooth and slippery in the mouthfeel. There was a lot of toasted sesame seeds and shallot oil added, the aroma of Chee Cheong Fun was heavenly. It would be best if they opened for breakfast selling this item and some kopi.

a good friend had a S$10 boon tong kee voucher to use & affected us for a 3pax lunch at the balestier branch. this a restaurant with 31 years history. :-) the stall at chinatown was started by a thian boon hua in 1979. and the very first btk restaurant opened at balestier road in 1983. 
my friend wanted to book btk at 1pm (as we were all watching world cup soccer opener brazil vs croatia) but it was fully booked. we decided to go early instead at 11.45am, also there were limited kampong chicken so better to be early. 
there is a huge carpark just behind balestier food centre which is adjacent to btk.
we got ourselves a table. the place was full & a queue soon formed outside. about 3 tables were reserved for tourist busload!
my friend ordered 4 dishes.
#1 kampong chicken was very good, though my friend the connoisseur felt it was not as good as usual. for me it was very good, smooth, sweet & not so fatty.
& the rice was very good, flavourful & not too oily. the thinly chopped ginger oil dip was excellent! 
#2 the chicken liver & gizzard were ok. i am partial though to chicken intestine which was not offered at this btk branch.
#3 the bean curd with jing bai (津白) chinese cabbage was very good though, especially the beam curd!
#4 the hk steamed cod fish with wood fungus (木耳) was excellent, the best. 

the meal came to S$84 for 3pax including 3 barley drink (S$2.20 each) before using the S$10 voucher. it was not cheap but it was really a very good meal for me.
btk is more like a zi char than just a chicken rice stall. i don’t take so much chicken rice these days but this was really good relative to many good neighbourhood chicken rice stalls like the ones i had at tanglin halt & 6th avenue. i will certainly come back both for the chicken rice & also the zi char dishes.

My dad is a fan of Boon Tong Kee, so we often go eat. I don't really like it but this time I find that it tasted not bad. The chicken this time was very tender,very smooth, love it. Boon tong kee chicken rice always come with a meat ball and some sour vegetables. It is super sour for me, but feel quite refreshing after having oily rice. The queue can be very long during peak hour, service is okay.

Being in the Balestier area after visiting a friend, we went to BTK to order Golden Toufu,Hainanese Chicken, Assorted egg spinach. We were served shortly upon order.

Tender and succulent boiled Chicken oozes the sauce it had absorbed when served from plate.
Crispy golden toufu had a vibrant and appealing colour, but unfortunately was bland. Needed to dip into sauces for flavour.
Salted egg, chicken egg, century egg spinach is a must try! This is my personal favourite.

Boon Tong Kee is a famous name associated with chicken rice in this country. Although I’ve had my fairshare of overrated experiences with other branches with substandard ratings, I still come back to this Balestier branch which has always been impressive, Clean and neat environment, great for family gathering or takeaways.

As i'm always in this neighborhood for my weekly games, i walked all the way from spans jom clubhouse out to this BKT branch which is around 5min fast walk, but it was well worth it. Packed in a customized BTK plastic takeaway box, the dish is also labelled with its time of preparation and advisory of when to consume it by (nice one, hardly see others following suit). I was lucky to be given the chicken wing set, i must say i was delighted by its non fattiness yet well cooked and juicy chicken flesh. The accompany soy sauce was a tad too salty though but it still goes well with the chicken but a little overkill for the rice. The rice was also very fragrant. Chilli sauce was packed in sachet style . Anyway for take away, you go straight to the LHS unit, often perceived as the kitchen/preparation area and order at the cashier there.

Best chicken rice at Boon Tong Kee. I really like their chicken rice. Packet away for lunch. The take away container looked very presentable as well. One portion for chicken rice, top left for cucumber and right for all the chicken and sauces. I like their sauce mainly. It is a little salty but tasted real good with the chicken and rice. The chicken is very juicy and succulent. Will definitely be back again and again!

I decided to bring my dad to dine here for his birthday celebration as he had actually wished to try out the famous chicken here.As I thought that ordering half of a whole chicken would be sufficient for 4 mouths, I didn't think too much of the serving and also ordered claypot beancurd and deep fried prawn rolls.

The chicken served seemed just enough for two people and aall of us just ate a few pieces of the famous chicken which actually tasted like normal chicken to me; I couldn't find anything special just that the serving was rather stingy for the amount paid. We were so unhappy that we were not full despite after having such a costly dinner that we went to have durians.

Tried Boon Tong Kee’s recommended Long Then Yu, $43, a signature fish dish that is seasonal. The fish was served with roasted pork, mushrooms, beancurd and fish maw! This dish reminds of Pen Chai, you know that large claypot dish filled to the brim with seafood and thick savoury braised gravy? Rich and bursting with flavours of the sea, I actually liked this dish better than the chicken!The restaurant said it’s their policy to charge customers extra $2 if they order claypot dishes. Odd.

A must-have is the white, silky, steamed chicken.
The is so tender and silk that it slips down my throat. Most importantly, it is fragrant and nice. Goes very well with the fragrant chicken rice


We also ordered the Claypot Toufu. The toufu is soft on the inside and hard on the outside. The sauce is thick and tasty.
I love it.
