Bee Kia Restaurant is located within a coffee shop at Thomson Road, opposite Thomson Medical Centre.
If you noticed (during pre “Circuit Breaker” days), almost every table would order the two signature dishes – Beef Hor Fun and Prawn Paste Chicken – which were indeed crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.
Service can be mostly straight-forward and snappy – depending on how you see it.
”Is there a menu I can refer to with price list?”
”没有!” (Don’t have.) Okay.
For your reference, the stall serves up a variety of zi char dishes of Black Pepper Beef ($12, $15, $18), Sweet Sour Pork or Pork Ribs ($10, $12, $15), Hei Zho Prawn Roll ($10, $12, $15), Ginger Onion Fish Slices ($10, $12, $15), Claypot Tofu ($10, $12, $15), Foo Yong Egg ($8, $10, $12), Sambal Kang Kong ($8, $10, $12) and Sichup Bittergourd ($8, $10, $12).
If you are looking for rice or noodles, options include Beef Hor Fun, Beef Kway Tiao, Beef Fried Rice, Fried Rice, Sin Chow Bee Hoon, Seafood Horfun – all priced at $5, $8, $12.
The good thing here is, portions are really good for its price, and they are fast for the type of crowd getting. Pre-ordering would Of course help reduce wait times.
Their signature saucy Beef Hor Fun ($8) was actually enough to feed two people.
The velvety smooth rice noodles were cooked to appetizing charred flavour with nice smokiness, accompanied with succulent beef slices.
The meat slices were drenched in luscious black bean and cut chilli which added mild spiciness, making every mouthful rather full of flavour.
Termed as Geylang Lor 9 Beef Kway Teow’s closest competitor, its edge would be the succulent beef full of bite, compared to Geylang which might be overly soft. You feel there is substance.
But of course, dabaoing this back is not quite the same as having there piping hot (it kind of ‘lost’ its wok-hei fast compared to some other places which still retain its heat a long while.)
They are also famous for Prawn Paste Chicken aka Har Cheong Gai ($10, $12, $15), known for its aromatic and sinfully crispy texture, with a tasty golden-brown shell covering the tender chicken that is bursting with flavours.
Besides the crispiness, I also thoroughly enjoyed the subtle prawn paste flavour that didn’t overpower the succulent chicken flesh.
Interesting to note that you don’t get mainly wings or drumlets, but different parts of the chicken instead.
Wait, I noticed they didn’t give me chilli. Is it just me?
