Sio Bak

$4.00 ยท 58 Reviews

This rather well-known stall actually serves up one of the BEST crispy pork bellies weโ€™ve had in Singapore and lives up to the hype.

Honestly, with one singular bite, I was already sold. What sets it apart from others is that crunching sound when you bite into the crackling Sio Bak skin. The meat-fat ratio was just the way I liked it, slightly on the fattier rather than leaner side, giving it a more deliciously light feel.

Upon first glance, this plate already had me salivating over how the rice and meats were lathered with their gooey, sweet sauce and the glistening roasted pork belly skin. Iโ€™d recommend you ask for the fatter cut of their darker Char Siew, so as to get the ultimate GLUTTON experience.

Their sio bak > charsiew for me (although I seldom eat sio bak because I donโ€™t really like the fatty bits).

๐—ฆ๐—ถ๐—ผ ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ธ came with really crispy crackling and melt-in-your-mouth fats. Most were excellent while 1 piece had drier lean meat. ๐—–๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜„ was nicely caramelised, charred outside (important!) with fatty and lean parts but there were a couple pieces with drier meat, otherwise it was good. Both were really flavourful on its own without needing the chilli.

Thin hk style egg noodles went really well with the meats.


Price: $8.50

Not exactly cheap but hey! Itโ€™s for a variety - Char Siew, Sio Bak and Roast Duck.

My preference has always been:-
Char Siew > Roast Duck > Sio Bak

And today, 88 Hong Kong Roast Meat Specialistโ€™s Sio Bak was so freakin good?
It has a good amount of meat in each bite,
the fats just melts in your mouth,
the skin is so crispy and fragrant???
Hands down to the Best Sio Bak Iโ€™ve had.

The Roast Duck and Char Siew were okay. Iโ€™ve had better ones. I like that the Char Siew is sweet and charred. And the chilli on the side was really not bad, quite spicy and goes well with the meats.

A lovely bowl! Priced at SGD 4.50, it came with nice amount of char siew
wantans were decent, the noodles were flavor and texture wise great, although Iโ€™s still prefer them to be less oily.
They are more known for their sio baks, but they char siew was delicious!
It wasnโ€™t the fibrous meaty type but more to the hard type typical of char siews, but not hard to chew at all thanks to the nice fat-meat ratio that was enough to make it conveniently chewable without adding too much unpleasant fattiness

Plenty of good reviews.

But felt it was too too oily for me.

But the sio bak skin is definitely crispy and out of this world.

The char siew and sio bak were mindblowingly good. I am not even a fan of sio bak but this has won me over. The crispy skin and melt-in-your-mouth fat is a perfect combination!

The amazingly crispy skin of the sio bak releases a thundering crackle as it crumbles in your mouth almost like cookies, while the rest of the decadently fatty meat sensually caresses the tongue. Pretty expensive though ($5.50).
