Kim Heng Roasted Meat – Crispy Siew Yoke and Fatty Char Siew
Have you ever tasted succulent roasted meat so good, that you feel like you are being sent to meat heaven? Well, I have at Kim Heng Roasted Meat located at Serangoon Avenue 4. Housed in a coffeeshop opposite Serangoon Swimming Complex, Kim Heng Roasted Meat sells a slew of roast meats such as roast duck, roast chicken, roast pork (siew yoke) and bbq pork (char siew).
We decided to order the Roasted Pork and Bbq Pork Rice ($4.80), as the meats looked absolutely tantalising. When a dish looks as good as that, you know you are in for a treat. The roasted pork (Siew yoke) had a crispy crackle and the melodious crunch reverberated in my mouth. The perfectly seasoned roast pork had the perfect meat-to-fat ratio and just melted in my mouth. Pair the siew yoke with white rice to balance out the saltiness. Tuck in, and enjoy. Trust me, you can’t stop at one piece!
The char siew was glorious too. It was slightly fatty, and was really tender. The fats were not rubbery, but were soft, melty and delicious. In addition, it was not too cloyingly sweet. The rice was bathed in a slightly smokey gravy.
Chilli sauce is also available at the stall front, should you want to dip your roast meats in a spicy concoction. The chilli sauce was sweet, spicy and slightly bitter at the same time. I gather this must be from the roasted char flavour. The chilli sauce complements the dish well, but the roasted meats are already pretty good on their own.
We also ordered the Duck Rice ($4). The duck had a nice bite to it, and was not tough at all. The skin had a slight char, which would be well received by those who love a smokier flavour. Similarly, if you are in the mood for some spice, you can dip the duck into the accompanying chilli sauce.
You know when things are bad for you, and you ought to stop? Well, in this case, it is very very hard to stop eating the crispy skins and tender fats in the roasted meats. It takes a sheer amount of willpower. Well, but the meats at Kim Heng Roasted Meat (especially the siew yoke) is definitely worth the calories. So sinful, but so good.
