Boon Tong Kee is finally open, everyone! What? You weren't waiting for it? Well, we were! :p We have been since seeing it's sloppily covered signboard! Boon Tong Kee here is popular in Singapore and this one is not actually the first branch here in Jakarta. There first is the one in Kelapa Gading but seriously, we rarely go there seeing as it's way too far off, which is why we're excited that they decided to open one that's closer, at Pantai Indah Kapuk!
I guess they made a pretty good decision to open here, seeing as the people here likes Chinese food and it's proven by the fact that it's a full house when we came here! Lucky us we got here just in time, so we didn't get into a waiting list, which got long after we sat down! Boon Tong Kee and Woon Tung Kee is actually the same, just fyi!
WTK SIGNATURED BOILED CHICKEN (WHOLE) IDR 198K
Of course this is a must-have item when you come here! Can't really complain about this, since it's just such a comfort food that can't really go wrong. Accompany this with chicken rice, add the sauce into the rice and eat it altogether..heaven!
WTK SIGNATURED ROAST CHICKEN (WHOLE) IDR 198K
WTK here actually means Woon Tung Kee, so don't get confused now! I personally prefer the boiled chicken cause this is a bit too dry for me. It might be good if you eat it with some kind of sauce or chili, which is what I did!
TOFU CLAYPOT SEAFOOD IDR 98,5K
This is like an obligatory dish when you eat at a Chinese restaurant..lol! Though we're somewhat disappointed that the tofu is not the usual Japanese tofu but since the taste is still good, we're gonna let it slide just for this time!
SWEET AND SOUR PORK IDR 135K
Though the others were hating on this, I still couldn't hate it. It's pork and it's sweet and sour, which are both my favorite things! How can I say no? The portion might be smaller than I expected but it tastes okay, needs more meat though cause all I can taste is crispy skins!
CRISPY CEREAL FISH IDR 125K
Tastes delicious because of how salty it is..lol! Plus, since it's a dory fish, expect tender meat with crispy cereal! So on top there is not only cereal but egg made into floss-like! Yum!
SQUID RINGS WITH MAYONNAISE IDR 70K
Deep fried foods always go well with mayonnaise, so expect nothing less from this! You gotta eat it with the mayo though, cause just the squid is very plain, yet it's not so plain with all those meat floss on top! Nice catch!
You can never really dislike dishes when it's Chinese food, especially when I grew up eating these kind of foods. There's also low chance for a Chinese restaurant to taste bad, no matter how bad, it's still okay. Well, at least that's what I think, since I've never been to a horrible tasting Chinese restaurant!
