I’m sure you probably have tried @88hongkongroastmeatspecialist if you’re a roasted meat fan just like me. Located in the Lavender/ Jalan Besar area, they are not to be missed as there’s always a long queue for their Cantonese roasts. You can have your roasted meat with rice or noodles though we just went for the meat as we had a heavy breakfast. We paid $16 in total for this plate of meat that’s roasted in charcoal.

My ideal type of char siew. A caramelised, charred exterior with a tinge of sweetness from the marinade. And be treated to meat that’s so tender. They have lean and fatty cuts of char siew available but fatty cuts are served by default.

I’m a great fan of fatty char siew and the fat to meat ratio is perfect. It’s so delicious that I’m willing to let the fat clog my arteries.
