With SCS Butter Tucked deeper in this little Coffeeshop in Siglap is a smoked duck joint that looked pretty promising. Actually this LTN coffeeshop is pretty horribly laid out. There is little exposure for the stalls that are deep inside the coffeeshop but I am beginning to appreciate just how many gems there are in […]
Grains: Shiok and Healthy Restaurant Food at Cze Char Prices!
This restaurant is closed Grains 8 Treasure Tea Health Tea $5++ The words healthy and shiok seldom go together. Not in the context of Singapore Cuisine anyway. So when my friend, PowerAunty arranged for me to review this restaurant, I was expecting this blog to go under my “Healthier Stuff” label. But boy was I […]
Kay Lee Roast Meat Joint: Move over Colonel Sanders, I also got 11 Herbs and Spices!
The original owners have since sold the business and the food is no longer the same I am beginning to realize the only common thing about Char Siew is the fact that it is long strips of marinated meat! No, some people don’t even BBQ their Char Siew and it still passes off as Char […]
Lau Phua Chay Roasted Duck: Teochew Style Roast Meat Anyone?
With Tag, Carnineviand, iwatch_ueat and Bashful Hunter If there is one thing the Teochews are not well known for is Roasted Duck. We are more famous for our Braised Duck. So when this Teochew Ah Hia told me that his Char Siew and Roast Duck is Teochew Style it threw me absolutely off balance. So […]
Fong Kee Roast Duck: The Duck Sauce was outstanding
So far the best Roast Duck I had was the one in Sydney. Ok, ok, I know that the best Roast Duck is in Hong Kong, but I never had the chance to eat at the famous Roast Goose place in Hong Kong. During the early 90’s, Hong Kongers fled Hong Kong for the West […]
Toh Kee: Dark Roast Duck: People’s Park Food Centre Part 2 of 3
With smart, damien, liverpool and iwatch_ueat This is another of Singapore’s Zhao Pai (Famous) Roast Ducks and the name is almost synoymous with People’s Park Centre. With a roast duck so yummy, I wonder why there aren’t more people trying to copy their style. Well, maybe the difference is not huge, but the first thing […]
Why is it so difficult to find a perfect bowl of Wanton Mee? Afterall, Wanton Mee one of our favourite foods. Yet, you always hear people say that the Wanton Mee in Hong Kong is so much better. When I was younger, I did not really appreciate the role the noodles played in the Wanton […]
Selera: Doesn’t Sound like a Roast Duck Stall! Bedok Interchange Food Centre Part 3 of 7
With smart, holydrummer and iwatch_ueat There are a few Roasted Meat Stalls in Bedok Interchange competing for your attention. To be honest, they all look quite good. We selected Selera because someone on the forum mentioned them. Maybe some of our readers can comment on the other stalls around? The Char Siew was ok. It […]
Fatty Cheong’s CharSiew: Power Char Siew! ABC Food Centre Part 2 of 4
Republished with Updated Pics This is my idea of what a great char siew should be like. Thickly cut, tender, marbled and juicy meat with nicely charred and caramelised bits of fat on the outside. When you bite into the char siew, not only should it melt in your mouth, but, at the same time […]
Lee Hong Kee Roast – Meat Tiong Bahru Market Part 2 of 6
This is probably the best Roasted Meat Stall in the new Tiong Bahru Market and was recommended by the forummers. I think the best item here is the Sio Bak. For those concerned about their fat intake and cholesterol levels, you would be pleased to see that the pork here is pretty lean. I was […]
Outram Park Roasted Meat: Chinatown Complex Temp Mkt Part 3 of 5
This is quite a well known stall among the forummers. As with most of the stalls in ChinaTown Complex, they have been in business for quite a long time. I liked the Char Siew in this stall. The meat is juicy and tender and the sauce is a bit more on the sweet side. Judging […]
I love meat. When it comes to pork. I love char siew. So I have decided to do a char siew challenge to compile pictures from the top 10 char siew/sio bak/roast duck hawker stalls in Singapore. If you have a favourite char siew store please let me know. The kind of char siew I […]
