The food was disappointing! I ordered congee, Gabas, Siliman and chicken feet. ALL and I mean ALL were disasters!!! The hakaw was hard and you could not discern the shrimp. The Siomai was mealy and the congee was soupy. The chicken feet was tasteless. The review summary suggests. NEVER AGAIN!!

Only the chicken rice registered well in my palate. Their boiled chicken is passable. Don't order the thick crab meat soup. We also found their sweet & sour pork and their cereal prawns pedestrian. One thing going for this restaurant though is its attentive servers.

While we haven't dined here for years, we couldn't pass up the chance to try their pork buns at their kiosk on the ground floor. As part of the festivities for the Chinese New Year, several merchants are on the ground floor offering oriental delicacies.

Served warm, the bread was soft, the filling generous. At 40 pesos a piece it's almost the price of the Tim Ho Wan buns that are way better than this. But I still liked it enough to give it 4 stars.

Chinese New Year is fast approaching.  Some malls have their signature homage for the approaching festivities.

Power Plant has food stalls that sells Chinese fare.  One of them was Bong Ton Kee.  They sell dimsum,  pork buns (steamef and baked)  and laksa. 

After dessert,  i decided to get some laksa for takeaway.  Reasonably priced at php 90, the serving is just right.  Noodles,  bean sprouts,  tofu,  shrimp and the laksa broth.  Asked for extra chili garlic oil,  just in case the broth aint spicy enough for my standards.  Best decision as the broth lacks heat,  i even added chili powder and oil to reach the level of spice that i prefer.  The noodles are soft,  despite the lack of heat the broth is flavorful.

Food was good. I liked the Singaporean chicken. Service was bad though. The appetizers came after the main course. They also forgot the other orders so I had to cancel it. To top it all the place was not even full. I am a bit disappointed.

Cereal prawn was too salty. Roast chicken was bland. It's not Wee Nam Kee so lower expectations. To the lowest level. They didn't even include the other premium bun in our takeout bag (which was the one thing I ate that tasted good). Instead, I got a doggie bag of shrimp heads from the cereal prawn we ordered. Guess someone from their staff went home with our premium bun. Lucky bastard! Never eating there again.

Saturday night is strictly family night, we eat dinner together regardless of the time and place, well luckily we tried a new restaurant last night

It was my first time to try singaporean cuisine so i just let them order and for me to try em all 128517, well i was able to suggest them to order laksa even though i have no idea what it was, my team leader keeps on mentioning it to us so when i saw it on the menu i ordered it immediately. Well i had a hard time trying to capture photos of the dishes we ordered since my family is not a fan of trying out new foods, this is the first time they saw me making a review about food and got weirded out 128563

Anyway, dishes were delicious, the taste is distinct and quality is great, my laksa came in last so everyone got so curious about it, i was kinda surprised coz none of them were familiar with that dish despite the fact that they've been to SG before, well i likes it, at first look you'd expect it to be super sour and extremely spicy but when you try it, its very creamy, with just a hint our lemon grass flavor and a kick of spiciness, the egg noodles looks like its not supposed to be there but when you take a sip and bite from it, its perfectly good alongside with the seafoods incorporated in it.

I enjoyed it a lot, looking forward to try their other dishes next time 128522

When is Boon Tong Kee going to close? I dont know what theyre cooking anymore. Check out this pork belly. It was so thinly sliced, & its overly charred. there's hardly any meat & this is the second plate ~ I've sent the first one back to the kitchen.

Their pork bun is a delight. We also ordered roasted duck, wanton noodles and their spare ribs marinated with coffee sauce. We find the last one too sweet but the rest were okay. They have lunch set menus available on weekdays if you are looking for non-fastfood value for money meal options (hainanese chicken rice, spare ribs rice among others).

Lunch buffet 388++

WALANG WHITE CHICKEN!!

They have the following on the day I visited

Egg Drop Soup
Roast Chicken
Salted Fried Rice
Chicken Rice
Something Noodles
String Beans something
Butter Chicken
Salt Pepper Spareribs
Beef Something
Pork Sisig
Dessert

Mostly the food tasted a lil too salty. You have to wait for the roast chicken because they are rationing it and preparing the replacement when the first is empty. The butter chicken looked like squid. No idea how the pork sisig became a part of the buffet but it has no business of being there.

Bottom line ... WALANG WHITE CHICKEN!!

Having tried the original in Singapore - the local version is close to the real thing.

They serve the fried buns too which is great eaten with the crispy roast chicken. Good mix of the salty chicken skin with the sweetness of the bread.

Service can definitely improve, but close enough.

They were giving Boon tong Kee flyers at the entrance containing their lunch bowl promos which are priced at around 138-150. Last time I tried it was last year, I thought it had improved but no.

We tried it during lunch and basically I regretted trying it. The food was either overseasoned or bland. The ingredients doesn't look fresh, and the amount of viand is too small. Not even worth it for the affordable price.

Ordered Dimsum (siomai) as well and it took them 20-25 minutes for it to be served even if their resto didn't have that much customers. Not recommending it.

I've tried Boon Tong Kee (same branch) before so I decided to eat here again. I was surprised because the chicken was not as good as I remembered it. I'm not sure if I just had too high expectations from my previous visit but the chicken really underwhelmed me. Had the spinach with assorted eggs, which is still the same in (very good) taste. Tried their deep fried stuffed fritter too which I enjoyed enough, but didn't like the sauce. Overall it was an OK visit. I wish I had gotten something else than the chicken though.
