Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Chinese Food|Singapore

It has been almost two months since I came to Singapore to work, in this period of time I discovered some nice food places through recommendations from my Singaporean friends. One of the good eateries was Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup, which was located across Kembangan MRT station.

Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup, Singapore
We went to the restaurant right after work, which was good because we didn’t have to worry about the crowd at night. By the way, photos in this post were taken with iPhone5 instead of my usual camera.

Mee Sua, Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup
Our food came quite fast upon ordering. We had a bowl of Mee Sua (面线) each. The bowl of salted Chinese noodles was delicious, the noodles were smooth and silky to the mouth while the herbal soup was full of flavour.

Claypot Sesame Chicken, Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup
Since there were four of us that day, we ordered dishes to share. The Claypot Sesame Chicken (麻油鸡) arrived piping hot garnished with abundance of spring onions. The chicken was tender and flavourful while the sliced mushrooms complemented the chicken very well. The only downside of the dish was that the chicken was slightly too oily.

Steamed Lala, Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup
Next up, we had a plate of Steamed Lala (柠檬啦啦). The dish did not fail to impress as well. The Chinese-styled steamed clams whet our appetites as it was cooked with lemon, vinegar and Chinese wine.

Fried Bean Curd Skin with Seafood Stuffing, Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup
However, the star of the night was the Fried Bean Curd Skin with Seafood Stuffing. Very nicely deep-fried without excess of oil, the dish was unique on its own. The bean curd skin was crispy on the outside while the stuffing retained its juice and moisture. Dipped and eaten with their homemade sauce, it was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend this dish to all readers.

Kang Kung Belacan, Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup
Last but not least, we had a plate of Kangkung Belacan (马来风光). The classic Malay styled stir-fried water vegetables with dried shrimps and belacan was delicious and served as a good source of green vegetables.

Overall, our stomachs were well fed and we were very contented with dinner that night! Thanks to Shi Kai for introducing such a wonderful place to us! The total bill was $60 for four, which I thought was reasonable. The restaurant opens for dinner and supper, operating time was from 5pm til 4am the next morning. So if you’re craving for good midnight supper, you know where to go!
