I’m gonna be honest, I’m kinda addicted to soya sauce chicken. So it really was kinda inevitable that as I was walking down Bugis with an empty stomach, I would end up eating Choo Chiang’s magnificent meats. According to the assorted newspaper clippings, they used to be located in Yishun, so I suspect that they could very well be the long lost roast meats stall I used to frequent a lifetime ago.

The soya sauce chicken was tender, juicy and terrifically tasty. The thick sauce was healthily herbal and full of savory flavors, and there’s a generous amount of marvelous meat to go around. The roast pork was another winner, with its well cooked fat and thoroughly seasoned meat. Of course, the crackling was the main event, and it was unarguably stellar. Crunchy and utterly smashing, when you bite into a slice of siew yoke, everyone within a five meter radius is gonna know about it.

The char siew could give all the other roast meats stalls out there a hell of a run for their money, save for the fact that the guy swinging the cleaver has the aim of a bad guy in an 80’s action movie. The superb slices of char siew are very unevenly sliced, one slice would be paper thin while the next would be supremely chunky. Of course, everyone knows that when you slice char siew too thin, the texture is ruined.

Fortunately, there were a few joyously thick slices of char siew, and I can confirm that they are truly tender and incredibly moist. The mildly sweet and stunningly savory seasoning lathered onto the meat pre roasting has thoroughly infused every last molecule of meat, and every bite was a truly sapid sensation.

Only problem is that this three meat combo will set you back by a whopping $9.50, so expect your wallet to get absolutely pounded. While there’s far better value out there, Choo Chiang’s meats have me firmly aboard the taste train to Flavortown.
