A long-term favourite among the Burpple community for its soy sauce chicken, Fatty Ox also turns out some amazing char siew. According to Burpple Tastemaker Peter Wong, all the meats here are roasted in a traditional charcoal oven, thus explaining the spot-on texture and flavour. The much raved about soy sauce chicken is tender and juicy, with a hint of Chinese herbs. What really impressed though was the char siew, which Peter describes to be "out of this world", thanks to the perfect 1:2 fat to meat ratio. The caramelised bits, as well as hits of ginger, make for off the charts deliciousness. The noodles, too, are something to rave about. Springy, with no distinct alkaline flavour, these make the perfect canvas to showcase the stellar meats. Order the Soy Sauce Chicken and Char Siew Mee ($5) to taste the best of everything.
