If you like Hong Kong-style roasted meats, give this newish stall at Jin Biao Coffeeshop (Tampines Street 22) a go. Our Tastemakers ordered the Roast Pork, Char Siew and Roast Duck Noodles ($6.80), and were surprised by the quality of the meats, especially the duck! "The roast duck is succulent, smooth and tender; none of that grainy texture that you are going to get here," says Tastemaker Xing Wei Chua. The skin also boasts a lovely crackle. Apart from the duck, both the roast meat and char siew are tasty. The roast pork nails it with crackling crisp skin, while the char siew offers a good mix of fat and char, and a deliciously smoky flavour. The bed of noodles are springy and tossed in a savoury sauce — the perfect canvas for the tasty meats!
Pro tip: If you're simply here for the duck, get the Roasted Duck Noodles for just $3.80.
Avg Price: $5 per person
