Boon Tong Kee at Rockwell

I’ve recently become more open to exploring different types of cuisine. Last month, I got to try Boon Tong Kee, a Singaporean-Chinese restaurant and a family-owned franchise brought here years ago. I haven’t been to Singapore but it’s supposedly huuuge back there (hope I get to try it out there too!) Although I’ve seen their branches ever since, it was my first time to try them out — should have tried it out sooner!

Prawn Toast with Green tea mayo


For starters, we had these yummy toasts! I love Oyster cake and this dish reminded me of it. For a girl who hates condiments, the green tea mayo was suprisingly good and even addicting!

Crispy Beancurd


Next for starters were these cute tofu cubes sprinkled with pork floss.

Poached Chinese Spinach Soup with Assorted eggs

Healthy soup before a great pig-out for the rest of the night (lol). Such generous serving of spinach! Particularily liked the dried fish toppings that gave it an extra crunch and flavor.

Fried Fried Bean with Scallops

Yay for more veggies! I’m a gulay-girl so my plate was pretty much filled with greens the entire timeeee.

Sweet & Sour Pork
Hainanese Chicken

Let the entrees begin!

Cereal Prawn

The star of the night. This was my first time to try Cereal Prawn… I died. It was so good — imagine jumbo shrimps coated in sweet and crunchy cereal floss (tbh I can just eat the floss). I can’t even count (and don’t want to) how many pieces I gobbled down. I swear, this is a must-try!

Sambal Fried Rice

Another must-try, ditch the plain rice and order this! You can even eat this on its own with all the flavors going on in this dish.

Baked Pork Buns

As if we weren’t full enough, we got some pork buns which were sweet and oh so filling! I think with just two of these, I’m good.

Sago-Gulaman Melaka with Vanilla Ice Cream

And because there’s always room for dessert, we capped off dinner with this perfect Malaysian inspired dessert. The sweetness was just right and although the unsual pairing, the sago worked well with the ice cream!

Thank you Boon Tong Kee for the food coma great dinner! Can’t wait to be back!

P.S. For budget-conscious students like myself, they have very affordable rice bowls (below P150) so go check them out! 🙂
