It’s back to work after a few days of festive feasting and celebrations but lunch at work does not necessary mean boring. Here’s a new place to check out for those who work in the East. Seng Kee is quite well known in the hood amongst the Easterners for good Chinese stir fry dishes.
Located along Changi Road, you can park you vehicle at the temple for free opposite the coffee shop where Seng Kee is located. You can place your order at the main kitchen area where all their signature dishes are posted on the wall with enticing photos.
The entire corner coffee shop is fully catered to Seng Kee with typical round tables catering to more than 30 groups of diners. Seng Kee caters drinks for their diner as well.
One of the more popular dish includes this pan fried bee hoon where the rice noodles is flat and pan fried till crispy and dry. The noodle is fried till very fragrant and tasty.
The rice noodle soup is also one of the popular dish as it is light and soupy and is a good match with the pan fried noodles. The soupy noodles are not too mashed up and you can still taste and see the noodles strand by strand while the soup is light, starchy and savoury.
You can also have the herbal soup with rice noodles and pig organs. This dish is one of my favourites as the noodles are soft and floury with strong herbal soup and fresh crunchy organs and meat.
The lettuce is fried lightly with garlic and fermented bean curd so the dish has very crunchy texture and the sauce complements the greens well.
The fried mince prawn dumpling is fried till golden brown and each dumpling has a nice texture and crunch with minced vegetables and chestnuts mixed with minced prawn and pork meat. The skin is crispy and the inside is juicy and soft and taste great with sweet sauce provided.
Overall, Seng Kee has very good and affordable prices for all of their dishes. The only thing is that it is quite far out in the East.
