Keng Eng Kee Seafood Restaurant serves variety of Seafood and Chinese cuisine. They are very well famous for their delicious Mixed Platter, Claypot Dunken Prawns, Chili crab and Salted Egg Crab. This place has the perfect ambience to dine while you can choose to sit inside or outside the restaurant.
A brisk eatery with a regular crowd, i love dining here to soak up the atmosphere and tuck into their deep fried crab marinated with crusty egg yolk. i had a hard time searching for a yummy version and keng eng seng does a very good job. service is decent and i did not have to wait long for my crustacean to be served.
My colleague and I came to Alexandra Village recently and we had lunch at this eatery. It’s a Zi Char stall located at the bottom of a HDB block. It’s a stone’s throw away from the food centre.
This was the only stall at the coffee shop. It’s open-air. They have another area in the opposite block that’s air-conditioned. But the seating there is limited and the staff will transport food over to the other area on trays with transparent food covers.
Here are the highlights from our meal:- Sliced pig's liver: This was served in a hot claypot. Sauce was really hearty. Must eat it quickly so that the liver doesn't over-cook! It's good!
- Coffee pork ribs. The second best item for lunch today. The coffee aroma hits you the moment the plate lands in the table. Love the caramelised outer layer of the ribs, which were boneless!
- Kang Kong with Cuttlefish: This doesn't look like much, but it was the highlight of my meal. It had pork lard, yes many pieces of it in the dish. The sauce wasn't overly sweet and its mildly spicy. There was a layer of sambal atop the ingredients alongside brusged peanuts and a generous sesame seeds.
- 'Moonlight Rice Noodles': The moon represents my heart. This is the '月光河粉' or. The flat white rice noodles were stir-fried with dark soy sauce and a raw egg yolk was placed right in the middle, before serving. After the obligatory photo of the dish, the egg yolk was mixed in. There's seafood - prawns and squid, cut Chinese sausage, bean sprouts, vegetable and more pork lard in it.
- ‘Mingzhu Roll’: This was 'tau pok' or dry bean curd, fillled with sauteed button mushrooms, Chinese parsley, a ham slice, a prawn and a whole salted egg yolk. It's deep-fried and cut in half. Served with a mayonnaise sauce. The salted egg yolk is flattened and in the process, it became less salty.
The meal costs $60. We left with happy bellies and good memories.
It’s also good to come for lunch, as it’s not as busy as dinner time.
Pretty standard tze char food. The chilli crab was quite good, as was the prawn paste chicken. The sizzling egg tofu was good too. Prices were pretty fair ($65/kg for crabs) while everything else was about $10 per dish.
