Crystal Jade Dining In: Best Dim Sum since my Hong Kong Trip
Crispy Roasted Pork Belly $9 What is your favourite part of the pig? Well, mine are pork cheeks for braising, pork chops for Tonkatsu, pork ribs for Bak Kut Teh and Pork Belly for anything. Well, not really anything. Pork belly is good for Kong Bak, Char Siew, Bacon, and of course Sio Bak. Amongst […]
With Cactuskit and Holybro Alex Eating House has been on my To-Do list since I started the blog but somehow I never really got round to blogging them until recently. My guess is that if you ask any foodie where is the best Char Siew in Singapore, quite a few of them will mention this […]
OK, the current score is Singapore 2, Penang 1. We are going to compare three more dishes in this post. The first one is the Char Siew and Sio Bak. When it comes to Char Siew, there is one undisputed champion of Char Siew and Sio Bak in Penang and that is the one at […]
Some people like Bill Gates want to rule the world. Others like Phua Chu Kang only want to rule Singapore and perhaps JB and Batam. But for Mr Johnny Teo, all he wants is to rule Toa Payoh. With three stalls strategically placed around Toa Payoh, no Toa Payohrees need to worry about not getting […]

Kay Lee Roast Meat Joint: Move over Colonel Sanders, I also got 11 Herbs and Spices!
With iwatch_ueat and SCS Butter 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 Siew. (I am not in anyway endorsing this, but I even […]
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 […]
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 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.

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 […]
