Mother's Day Lunch: Boon Tong Kee Restaurant (MacPherson branch)


I think, like in most Asian families, my family members do not express our love for one another openly. We do things for one another and pray for one another but saying "I love you" or giving hugs to one another never happen among us. I do love my family members ...yes everyone of them very much....especially my mother. 
My mother is the most wonderful woman in my life. I thank God for my mother and all the wonderful mothers in the world. To all mothers reading my blog, in your children's eyes, you will always be beautiful. I wish all of you Happy Mother's Day! :) Have fun on Sunday!

My family and I celebrated Mother's Day a week earlier. :) As it was a last minute decision to have an early celebration, we did not have time to properly decide where to eat and make a reservation in a restaurant. Thus, we headed straight to our parents' food haunt, Boon Tong Kee restaurant, after church. I am glad we chose to dine there. 

I wrote a review on Boon Tong Kee a week ago and this is my second post on this place. 
As it was a celebration and there were more people, we ordered a few more dishes. My favorite is the assorted steamed egg. I love how the salted egg goes so well with the smooth steamed egg. I kept eating that dish until my brother commented that I probably ate half of it. :P 

My family members are lovers of the ginger paste served there. I am glad that the staff in Boon Tong Kee were generous to give each of us a small dish of ginger paste which we asked for refills later. The ginger paste made the chicken rice so delicious that I seriously do not mind just eating the rice with the ginger paste only and nothing else.  


The "must-order" steamed chicken

Boon Tong Kee restaurant started off as a chicken rice stall so a meal in Boon Tong Kee is never complete without their famous steamed chicken. 

pork ribs

Their pork ribs is good and besides the steamed egg, this is another dish I enjoyed a lot. 


My favorite steamed egg! :)
You gotta order this steamed egg dish! 

deep-fried bean curd
The deep-fried bean curd was highly recommended by the service staff but it was quite disappointing. This deep-fried bean curd is quite plain. It does not taste as good as it looks. 

spinach with assorted eggs

deep fried fish with tomato sauce
We ordered this fried fish with tomato sauce last and it was served quite late. I was already quite full when it arrived so I did not enjoy this dish much. Nothing will taste good when one is full, right?
