Tong Kee Chicken Rice ~ 東记鸡饭 ~

Tong Kee Chicken Rice has been operating since 1969, previously located in Margaret Drive. For the long history Tong Kee Chicken Rice has come and having passed down in generation, one can imagine the popularity level it has garnered over the years.

It has been a waste that Tong Kee Chicken Rice wasn't heard by my ears till recently, but as a saying goes, it's never too late.

Tong Kee Chicken Rice sells mainly roasted meat like roasted chicken (烧鸡), roasted pork (烧肉), and char siew (叉烧). So if you have a liking for roasted meat, Tong Kee Chicken Rice is not be missed out in your list.

Having the concept of self-service, you will be able to roughly know the waiting time till you can get a plate of chicken rice for your own.

Looking at my entire plate of roasted chicken, I immediately know I would love it. Indeed it is when I started spooning myself! The tender and juicy meat is absolutely mouthwatering. Little fats underneath the shiny roasted skin makes it a healthier choice too.

Two sauces that must be tried rather than just savouring on the meats and soup.

Sweet gravy for the roasted meat, which surprisingly isn't sweetness overload, and chicken rice chilli comes with a tiny bit of sourness to boost the refreshing effect. Likewise for the plate of chicken rice, it isn't oily yet the fragrance cannot be overlooked.

On my return visit, I will definitely give the roasted pork and char siew a try. That to say, Tong Kee Chicken Rice is worth a return visit!

On a side note, Tong Kee Chicken Rice is in no relation with Boon Tong Kee.
