Beng Thin Hoon Kee Restaurant - Hokkien Food

Monday - 27 October 2008

We had dinner at Beng Thin Hoon Kee Rest to celebrate my brother's birthday. My friends been telling me this is one of the best hokkien restaurants in S'pore. There was not many in S'pore and this is the oldest. We are quite familiar with hokkien food, these are some of the must order dishes we had that nite:

Duck Salad (M) - $30.00, their signature dishes. Very refreshing and appetizing, made up of shredded cucumber, honeydew, roast duck, jelly fish, coriander leave & peanut. The sauce taste like prawn paste mix with lime juice but not as sweet as rojak. Worth trying. (but not for me as I don't like prawn paste)

Fish Maw Soup (M) - $28.00. This is my favourite and this soup alone will make me come back again... The soup is full of fish maw & crab meat. The chicken stock is so sweet & thick. It's simply taste great. This is a must order dish.

Oyster Omelette (S) - $15.00. This is quite special & difference from the usual omelette, the egg is fried till light and crispy and top with fresh oyster & sambal sauce. It's quite oily at the base but is worth trying.

Prawn balls (M) - $20.00. This is not up to standard. It's crispy enough but the inside is too much flour & can't really taste the meat, prawn & water chestnut. Not worth ordering.

Braised Seacucumber & mushroom w/veg (M) - $40.00. The seacucumber & mushroom are thick & well braised with green mustard added to make it a healthy dish. Worth trying.

Braised pork w/bun (S) - $15.00. Not bad and surprisingly it is not oily. Worth trying.

Hokkien Mee (M) - $15.00. Their signature dish. I like the flat yellow noodle as its thinner than the usual one selling at cze char stall. This is also a must order dish. We also order a fried kailan to complete our meal. Total bill - $229 plus for 9of us.

Overall dining experience was good and we will definitely go back for the fish maw soup, braised seacucumber w/mushroom & hokkien mee.
