Nice Simple 3pax Dinner

See my full revies & photos at = http://chefquak.com/2014/06/02/simple-nice-dinner-beng-thin-on-1june2014/

went back to being Thin for dinner. we only 3pax, so just ordered their signature dishes = oyster egg, crabmeat fishmaw soup & sea cucumber duck. 
was last here for a 10pax dinner on 23.12.2013, was pretty ok too, satisfying.
#1 the crabmeat fishmaw was a bit low on crabmeat. somehow it was not as tasty as before. 
#2 the orh jian (蚝煎) – very crispy oyster egg – was every bit as enjoyable (as always!) so much so i decided to try it at home myself. 
#3 sea cucumber duck was also great. duck meat was soft not sinewy & sea cucumber & soup combination with the duck was quite good. there was a bit of tomatoes & celery. great dish. 
there was a 15% discount for UOB cards. we paid S$77 nett after discount, quite ok for the 3 substantial dishes for 3pax.

organiser of this months’ G10 dinner picked beng thin hoon kee. the hokkien restaurant started in 1949 & moved to its current premises at ocbc centre rooftop carpark in 1979. the founder, a lim yew hoon, recently passed on at 91, after building a very successful restaurant from scratch. it is a restaurant my wife liked & we used to go often in the past. 

we had 10pax for the evening & had a nice quiet corner, good for the restaurant really as we were usually the noisy lot. anyway being thin was less than 1/2 full this evening on 23.12.2013.

the organiser pre-orders 9 dishes.

we started with the signature duck salad (top photo). this was really a great creation. it’s like a cny “loh hae”, looked wonderful & tasted refreshingly good every time. i took this countless times & enjoyed always. 

next we had another signature dish – crabmeat fish maw soup. its chokeful of ingredients & well, tasted good every time! 

my friend ordered the skewered prawns. this was something i had never tried. prawns were just prawns & mostly fresh & good, but these were really good & tasty. i know a many friends like le chasseur’s version skewered prawns. for me though these were a lot larger & tastier. 

the claypot herbal chicken was next. i had not taken this dish too. usually i would go for the sea cucumber duck. it was good though, nice herbal flavour & a tender, tasty chicken. it was not my favourite however, i will always go for the duck. 

and wow, we had 2 servings of the steamed promfret. it was really good, as good as any good teochew restaurant. few os us ate up the four 1/2 fishheads. my friend knew the entire table consisted of hungry big eaters!

after all the meat dishes, we had a broccoli. ok, competent dish.

then it was the carb, a seafood mee such. another nice competent dish.

the org nee was ok average, had pumpkin not oily & not “pang” aka tasty, maybe because of…haha! :-)

missed my sea cucumber duck & crispy oyster egg, but then we had too much food for 10pax already. it was actually intended for 12pax but 2 could not make it. $52nett per pax was kind of ex for this restaurant, but we had 2 promfrets & skewered large prawns.

Will RantingPanda return again? The Oyster Omelette is enough reason for me to return again.

The Place Located at level 5 of OCBC building is Beng Thin Hoon Kee Restaurant, one of the most established Hokkien restaurant in Singapore which prides itself as serving the most authentic Hokkien fare.

The Food To be honest, my visit to Beng Thin Hoon Kee stems from my sole craving for the extraordinary Oyster Omelette ($25 – medium). It is the best Oyster Omelette you can find in Singapore in my opinion. I have no idea what secret recipe the restaurant uses to make the Omelette so crispy and tasty. No doubt it is a sinful dish, I have no qualms that the taste is worth every sin of it. We ordered the Fish Maw Soup ($16 – small) as well after I have heard some rave reviews of it prior to my visit. The taste of the soup is thick enough for my liking and yet it is not too starchy. The ingredients served is quite generous as well, given that we only ordered the small serving which I think is sufficient for a group of 3-4 people.
