Boon Tong Kiat


The drowning of chickens

On the radar of many guide books including the Lonely Planet, Boon Tong Kiat (a.k.a. Singapore Chicken Rice) earns credit for its Singapore style Hainanese chicken rice of which the chicken had a firm but tender texture. It was!

I didn't visit this once marvelous small eatery for a while (seven years perhaps) after the departure of both of its Singaporean partners. Until recently, I switch my hang-out pleasure back to upper Sukhumvit area without a choice as long as I am off-limits to downtown Bangkok due to those 'red-shirts' (ooops now they are no-color-shirts) chaos; somehow I revisit Boon Tong Kiat.

This chicken rice shop just doesn't cook chicken and BBQ pork right following the Singapore recipe anymore!

As long as the chicken still tastes good then ok to detour a bit from the traditional S'Pore way.

Mmh.. from the last time I tried (almost 4-5 years ago), it wasn't good, not considering it as a Singaporean, Malay, Hainan, HK or Thai style chicken rice. I miss BKK.... :(

I remember the Singaporean boss served us chicken chopped in big pieces with bone, chicken with firm and tender texture, with full flavor. No more? Became local khao men kai?

Those ABAC high-so students still go there?
