In case you find yourself at Boon Tong Kee for a late lunch or early dinner, there's two dishes that should be on your list.
Boon Tong Kee's Signature Boiled Chicken and Crispy Cereal Prawns. It would be a a crime not to have these two dishes on your table at Boon Tong Kee. Seriously.
Start with Boon Tong Kee's Poached Chinese Spinach with Assorted Eggs (P 295), a comforting soup with spinach and three kinds of eggs, including duck and century eggs for a truly unique flavor. Topped with crispy dilis for a delicious crunch, each spoonful is a contrast of textures.
Boon Tong Kee's Signature Boiled Chicken (P 425 Half/P 795 Whole), the dish that built Boon Tong Kee, served with traditional condiments. The delicate flavors of the Signature Boiled Chicken are enhanced with the combination of sauces. Pair this with Boon Tong Kee's Chicken Rice to complete the dish. For larger groups, go for the whole chicken.
Crispy Cereal Prawn (P 325 Regular/ P 525 Large), another signature dish at Boon Tong Kee. Fresh, plump prawns with a subtle briny and sweet flavor balanced by the crisp and crunchy cereal coating...perfect. The delicate and stringy cereal add a nutty flavor to the dish, making this one a real winner.
End your meal with a sweet Choco Almond Jelly (P 75). There are many more dishes to try at Boon Tong Kee, and my list of favorites is quite long. But you definitely have to add Boon Tong Kee's Signature Boiled Chicken and Crispy Cereal Prawn to your table in your next visit. Trust me.
