This Cantonese roasted meats stall opened at the basement of Katong Plaza shopping centre at the beginning of October 2015 and its roast meats was a hot favourite among the office workers there. It has now shifted to ct hub and unlike the chilli-based wanton mee versions of the Joo Chiat style, the wanton mee here is served with no potent chilli sauce. Instead it is flavoured with a rather unique soy chicken marinade reduction and a lot of lard. It has by far the best char siew (barbecued pork) n the lineup. It is done Kuala Lumpur-style with no artificial red colouring. Instead of pork shoulder, the more sinful pork belly is used. The resultant meat — made less sweet than what you get in KL — is tender, with nice charred and fatty bits. The other highlight is the high grade egg noodles that are used (Peng Kee brand). You get none of that ammonia odour that plagues lesser grades of factory noodles, which means a shorter shelf-life for the noodles (three days) but the resultant texture has a great bite feel. Pity that the two wantons you get are a bit on the small side, however free-flow fried lard is icing on the cake.

Well, this was fun! And nice - if you spend above $5.80 in a meal (not hard, that’s the 2 x meat option which I’d rec) you get a free water chestnut or ice lemon tea drink, which was certainly appreciated. For the meal itself, I tried both the cha siew and sio bak options, and honestly I have to say the sio bak is definitely what this place is all about.

Not that the cha siew was bad; far from it, but it really didn’t stand out much. The sio bak, on the other hand, was that perfect mix of crunchy and flavourful, and I really could’ve gone for more. It’s also a surprisingly affordable lunch in an occasionally pricey area. If you just want something that’s both familiar and delicious, it’s worth giving a shot!

The char siew is the star of the show here; tender, juicy & sweet while the sio bak also tasted not bad with the crispy skin. Both meats went well with the springy noodles drenched in black sauce. 😋


At a more spacious eatery space now, you could easily get a seat and lay your hands on their signature char siew made in-house!
I’m not sure Izzit my tastebuds or they changed their recipe but char siew tasted more sweet now with a floral aftertaste. Pork belly skin was crackling whereas the roasted chicken meat was too dry for my liking.

First time trying this place after colleagues mentioned that it's good. Noodles are springy and the meats are marinated well. Not bad.


Tried this a couple of times back when they are still at Katong. They have shifted to CT Hub 1 level 2 recently, so it’s on our engineering team strike zone. What I liked about the meal is that the roasted pork has a really crispy layer of skin that makes those cracker sounds as you bite on them. However, I think the overall meat selection has a cold touch to it when I'm expecting it to be warm. Hope they could improve on that.
