Xiang Mei Roasted Meat – Charcoal Grilled Roast Duck in Bukit Batok
Rarely do I have the chance to visit the west but when I do, I make sure I chiak all the way. We were recommended to try Xiang Mei Roasted Meat (香美烧腊), a two-minutes walk from Bukit Batok MRT.
Been around for more than 20 years, expect to see the queue especially during lunch. The owner still uses fresh duck instead of frozen ones and he roasts it over charcoal fire. What we get is a plate of beautifully roasted duck thigh with that mild crackling skin and juicy meat.
Even though it was not as meaty as I wished it would be, you can still get the juiciness from the meat with a very slight herbal flavours. I can’t remember if there was gravy but I think it’s good on its own.
The soy chicken is decent with quite tender meat but char siew is not their forte lah. Roast meat didn’t crackle as much and didn’t impress (If you want to eat good sio bak, this is the place to visit). Unfortunately, the chilli here is a little weak, tangy and spicy but too watery.
You can enjoy your meal for $3 with complimentary soup. They change their soup almost everyday, we had peanut soup that day.
