Dinner at Boon Tong Kee, Mall of Asia

Date of Visit: September 15, 2012

Last time, my officemate/friend scheduled a dinner night-out with our close friends from work. She treated us because her husband came back from Japan. It was also an opportunity for us to talk about business, our planned business and hopefully it will pushed thru. We came from our previous company (a financial institution) and now four of us are not connected anymore. So its like a reunion for all of us. Eventhough were not officemates now our communication is still there and our friendship remains the same. #Thankful

When we arrived in MOA, wala kaming makitang kainan kasi puno lahat. Payday eh! We can't transfer to San Miguel bay because its raining that time. We settled to Entertainment complex and found Boon Tong Kee located across the Highland Steakhouse near the IMAX theater. It's a Singapore franchise and first in Manila.

In 1979, Mr. Thian Boon Hua started a small stall in Chinatown serving Cantonese chicken rice. Building upon the popularity of his silky white sauce chicken rice and emphasis on quality service, he rallied his family members to establish Boon Tong Kee’s first restaurant at Balestier Road in 1983.

In its second year of operation, the restaurant started to garner rave reviews and accolades from industry luminaries and customers. Before long, outlets at MacPherson Road, Whampoa West, River Valley Road, Cheong Chin Nam Road and East Coast Road followed in rapid succession.
The company diversified its operations in 1999 to include "Zi Char" (home-style cooked food) and eateries. From the traditional Balestier Road outlet to the upscale River Valley branch, Boon Tong Kee has enthralled Singaporeans and tourists alike with its delectable food and friendly staff.

Here's our Dinner. We ordered the restaurant's recommendations:

Deep Fried Stuffed Fritter

Just like Lumpiang Shanghai but bigger in size. 

Poached Chinese Spinach with Assorted Egg

Crispy Bean Curd

Its always been my favorite. This cute nugget-look-a-like with crispy outer part and soft in the inside is really good paired with Wasabi Mayo :)

Chicken Rice for all of us.

Came in pyramid style.

Signature Boiled Chicken

We ordered this because its their signature dish just like Wee Nam Kee's.  Best combined with sauces.

For our drinks (no photo), most of us ordered fresh buko juice while the couple ordered Barley and lemonade.

My friends

Its been good catching up with friends over food. Watcha think?

Our table location is outside the restaurant and its perfect while watching the fireworks. Kaya lang when the fireworks started people kept coming in and stayed at the railings. In short, our table was surrounded with people watching fireworks. Kainis dba? Buti na lang tapos na kaming kumain that time kasi mawawalan ka ng gana. Nevertheless, our dinner was fantastic.

Thanks to Jhoy and Moks for the free dinner.
