    If you're not into sweet char siew, Soo Kee's version will certainly suit your palette without any difficulty. The dish is the restaurant's ultimate pride and joy - and is also the same case for many customers. The smokey and charred flavors complement the succulent and fatty meat perfectly like your favourite perfect love song (questionable). Either way, this dish is not one to be missed if you're in the area!

    Char Siew YoongNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Sweet, tender and juicy, char siew or barbequed pork belly is what many consider to be a joy-meal. The dish is absolutely glorious if you love your yok charred to a near-burnt consistency. Despite that, the flavors and texture are undoubtedly on point. We certainly can not vouch for the health aspects but all good things come with a price, right?

    Tips

    Closed on alternate Thursdays!

    Things to expect

    Perfect caramelization on your BBQ pork!

    A strong contender for the best siew yok and char siew in the city, Wong Mei Kee has been around the scene for over a decade. The restaurant is quite an eyeful as it also houses amazing Hai Lam Chicken Rice. With that said, don't be surprised with the overwhelming queues at Wong Mei Kee because we have already warned you. Then again, the wait will be worth it.

    Tips

    Try to visit early to avoid sellouts

    What many considers to be the safe haven for roast meat connaiseurs, Restoran Sun Ming has (almost) them all. Duck, chicken and pork, these roasts are lusciously decadent and sinfully good. Char siew here is indeed charred to perfection and gorgeously glazed with everything that makes the dish palatable. We have zero complaints here and can not rave enough about the dish! Forget those calorie-control diets. When it comes to char siew, it is undoubtedly best with oily rice!

    Tips

    Closed on Tuesdays.

    Things to expect

    Amazing roasts!

    Kedai Kopi Tian Hong 天福茶室Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Kedai Kopi Tian Hong first rose to fame for an organic reason: simply because they serve remarkable dishes. The star dish of the restaurant is what we have our eyes on: char siew. The barbequed pork literally melts in your mouth and forms an arguably unprecedented reaction between your emotions and tastebuds. Also, Tian Hong apparently serves complimentary soup to wash down all that oil. Curious? Try it yourself!

    Tips

    Opens during day only.
