MING KEE is a Singaporean Restaurant known for its signature Crab Beehoon dish and other Singaporean specialties. It recently opened in Manila along Makati Avenue, as part of the World Hotels currently being constructed there.
Here’s what to expect when dining at Ming Kee…
Ming Kee can be found along the busy Makati Avenue, near the corner of Kalayaan. Unfortunately, there’s no parking available in front.
Ming Kee Menu: How it all began… | Ming Kee Triple Cooked with Beehoon | Live Seafood | Roast and Marinated, Salads, Appetizer | Soups, Vegetables, Fresh Seafood, Shrimps, Prawns, Clams, Oyster, Squid/ Cuttlefish | Pork, Beef, Homemade Beancurd, Noodles, Fried Rice
✮ Ming Kee Triple Cooked with Beehoon (1 kg – P250/ 100 gm +5% service charge). Acknowledged as one of Singapore’s best dishes. Ming Kee’s Crab Beehoon is stir-fried, steamed, and braised to perfectly infuse our secret flavors together with the rice noodles and the moist succulent crabs. This heavenly creation of our master chef will make you come back for more.
Make sure to order the King Crab, which weighs at a minimum of 1kg. It’s a bit expensive but is worth every peso.
The second bestseller is the Black Pepper crab, which wasn’t as saucy as I expected it to be.
It’s peppery hot and a bit messy to eat, but you can’t help but use your hands to get every piece of meat and lick the sauce off your fingers.
A healthy fish skin chicharon, which you can dip in their ginger-onion sauce. Make sure to order this as an appetizer.
The beancurd is homemade and served boiling in a claypot. It was very hot to eat, so I recommend letting it cool down a bit first so you can enjoy it without burning your tongue.
This spicy rice is best paired with the Crab Beehon or the Black Pepper Crab.
The cereal prawns weren’t oily (unlike in other restaurants). The shrimps are small and best eaten with their heads to really enjoy this.
The Hainanese chicken was just OK and we had better ones in other Chinese restaurants.
The ambiance of the place is a little plain and the live seafood pricing is a bit expensive. So make sure to order the right dishes and go with a group to maximize the experience. Budget about P1,300/head.
Check out Ming Kee while they’re on soft opening. It’s a good option if you’d like to try authentic Singaporean Chinese food without the crowd.
