This is really such a popular dish that no hawker centre or food court is complete without it. However, when it comes to searching for the best, Paul and I ventured out even to places that's not quite accessible by the MRT in order to have a taste of what some people would call THE BEST.
So why wasn't it the best Hainanese Chicken Rice for me? Admittedly, it was a tight battle but Boon Tong Kee, we feel, was very commercialized. The chicken may be slightly cheaper but with all add ons, our bill came out to be more expensive. Flavor-wise it can be comparable to our favorite Chicken Rice place but sadly, it's the authenticity that we're looking for which is somewhat lacking during our past visits. Nonetheless, it's still one of those places that I wouldn't mind taking a guest too as it got more branches all over the country.
Boon Tong Kee is located at 425 River Valley Road, Singapore. Call them at 6736-3213. They also have 6 other outlets all over town. Click here to see the full listing.
