Boon Tong Kee Kway Chap (3).jpgNot to be mistaken for Boon Tong Kee Chicken Rice (they’re not related at all), the star dishes here are kway chap and braised duck rice. The stall is also listed in the Michelin Plate guide, also known as the L’Assiette Michelin, or the Michelin Plate. What that means is that a Michelin inspector visited an eatery, and deemed it to be "where inspectors have discovered quality food". Any restaurant listed in the guide that isn't a Bib Gourmand or starred will bear this title.

As a big fan of kway chap, I found this one to be extremely satisfying. The set ($3.50) came with a good balance of ingredients, including tofu, offals (big and small pig intestines), chicken meat and an egg. For a one-person portion, it was more than substantial. 

Boon Tong Kee Kway Chap (2).jpgI like my offals clean (but of course), and am happy to report that the ones served here are indeed well-cleaned and tasty, with a chewy but not rubbery texture. The tofu is also silky and smooth, and not too soft that it gets mashed up when you cut it up. My only qualm was the gravy. Whilst it was well-seasoned, I would have preferred it a little thicker.

Like the tofu, the kway itself kept its shape and did not break apart easily when picking it up. The herbal broth it sat in was flavourful and not overly salty too. 

Boon Tong Kee Kway Chap (4).jpgI also tried the duck rice set ($4.50), which came with a generous serving of braised duck, tau kwa, preserved vegetables and hard-boiled egg. The sauce added was a tad salty, but the duck itself was tender and packed with flavour. It wasn't too gamey as well, as you might find in other duck rice stalls.

Interestingly enough, the rice used tasted a lot like claypot rice. It had an addictive, smokey flavour and contained dried shrimp, pairing well with the other ingredients. At $4.50 for a set, I would say this dish gives you bang for your buck!
