Reviews of good food at Kay Lee Roast Meat Joint (Upper Paya Lebar)

Comes with dark sweet sauce. I usually prefer Siew yoke, but think the Siew yoke here is too fatty. The lotus soup and old cucumber soup is passable. Rating 3/5. #burpple #instafood #foodinsingapore #foodinsing #roastpork #taiseng

2 combination meat with rice cost $7. Almost twice the price compared to the other roast meat stalls. Some might say it is not worth it. But this plate promises quality of the char siew and even the rice. The chilli and plum sauce goes very well with the meat too. If you haven't try it before, do make a trip down to the main outlet at macpherson to taste it for yourself!

Blackened, beautiful CHAR SIEW courtesy of Kay Lee - honestly befitting "Char" namesake! There is no gimmicky sweet sauce used pretentiously to hide bad pork here. The Roasted Duck has more to learn from its black brother - go for char siew portions alone, no regrets!

πŸ˜‹ A little pricey but th charsiew tastes extremely good πŸ‘ Love th fatty meat & th yummy sauce!! Def gna eat this agn! -J

It was only So-So, usual. However, the Cha Shu is definitely something different from usual. It had a well balance fat and meat proportion that made it juicy and tender for its texture. The seasoning created a special flavour and produces a unique fragrance when you chew on it.
Rating: 3.8/5
Worth your calories? Haha definitely but it's slightly pricey. Therefore I gave the rating slightly lower. I manage to get it at staff price. It's probably going to cost $6.00 for the above.

P.S. If you like such Cha Shu, you might want to try out "Char" along Guillemard Road.😘

Great minds think alike😊

Quite liked the char siew rice actually. The meat was not too oily and fatty, just the way I like my char siew. I guess I know why Kay Lee is famous, and cost $4 million. #Hawkerpedia

Simply comment below and tell me why you should win this. As usual, priorities goes to my followers πŸ˜‰ Ends 30th Aug 1159pm, only for people residing in Singapore. ✌🏼️ (Not forgetting the awesome char siew I had from Kay Lee roast meat joint, so damn goooood 😍) #sponsoredpost

They all end up having that same flour-y aftertaste, perhaps a slip in the folding method. But that crisp skin to their 烧鸭 in that unique sharp yet sweet Kay Lee duck sauce is to die for. With that signature smokiness and caramelized bits to their char siew bits. Understandably a $4 million recipe. #marshmunch #burpple #SETHEATS

Not sure if the recipe's worth millions, but the Zhu Jiang Char Siew is truly one-of-a-kind. Given the quality of the food, I'd say that the $57 price tag is somewhat justifiable #nofilter

Kay Lee, the famous roast meat joint that I'm sure most Singaporeans have heard about. This was actually my first time trying their food as past attempts to sample their famous roast were deterred by the long queues. I managed to avoid the crowd by paying a visit to their outlet at paya lebar around 11/12pm. I found their Roast Pork Belly to be average: crispy crackling skin attached to a sinful chunk of pork belly. The Char Siew was certainly well caramelised on the outside and the meat was tender and juicy. I felt that while both meats had rather rather tasty skins, they definitely could have been further enhanced with more flavour. The sweetness from the caramelised outer overshadowed the taste of the meat so all I could really taste was burnt sugar. But that being said, I did enjoy my lunch. I would just have preferred my meat a little more savoury to balance the taste out.

The million dollar question : my verdict ? πŸ˜‹βœ¨πŸ˜† hmmm, give me London Fat Duck, especially their honey glazed char Siew. πŸ˜‹ Which reminds me - haven't been back to London Fat Duck in a while.πŸ˜‰ #pearlspectives #pearlsphotography

If there's one roast meat joint that I would highly recommend, it's got to be Kay Lee. Some may say it's overrated, expensive or a drop in quality (after the 4million acquisition from the Aztech Group), the fact stills remain that it's one of the best in Singapore, especially the char siew. Charred with a smokey flavour, sweetness from the honey and ratio of fats to meat makes the char siew super addictive. It costs $30 for the Duo Meat Combination (Char Siew and Roast Pork) for 3 pax.

I remember loving the roasted meat from this store, before they sold the recipe off for $4 million. Now back after their revamp, I'm so glad to say that the quality of the roasts have stayed the same! The juicy roast pork boasts a crispy skin, followed by a succulent layer of fat (so guilty!) and a firm layer of pork. Char siew was fatty as well, and nicely charred. Definitely a worthy competitor to Foong Kee (;

A short walk away from Tai Seng MRT. Really succulent and fatty but really delicious and tasty. A little on the pricey end though. Was in a group of 3; we shared the platter of char siew (pictured) and each had a plate of plain rice and it was $7 per pax.
