[Old Airport Road, Singapore 🇸🇬]
[Hawker Centre]

Old Airport Road Food Centre is well known for its wide variety of delectable hawker eats. One of them is Roast Paradise which is in a humble stall at one corner. The well charred char siew caught my attention almost immediately.

For the 4 of us, we had the following

Triple Roast Platter
Which consisted of
Char Siew 叉烧,
Roast Pork 烧肉, and
Roast Duck 烧鸭
Rice 饭 (S$1) x 2
Hakka Noodles 客家面 (S$3.20) x 2

The well charred fatty char siew was well caramelized, served with a special savoury sweet dark sauce. The fatty roast pork was served with a sweet mustard sauce. Love its crispy crust. The roast duck was more boney than preferred. The Hakka noodle which looked like mee poh, was topped with minced meat and chopped spring onion. The noodle may looked plain, but tasted simply yummy with lard oil in it. The plain looking rice was savoury too, similar to chicken rice with hints of garlic, ginger, and lard oil in it.

Don’t forget to help yourself to the soup at the counter which was full of cabbage and chunks of tender pork. The broth was well flavoured and tasted distinctive of Dang Gui 当归 (Chinese Angelica) .

By the way the hawker centre will closed for 4 months due to renovations from June. Guess I just made it before the upcoming closure.

Thi was one sinful meal with roast paradise. Chose the three types of roasted meat so that I could try all at once, but realised that the char siew sio bak combination would’ve sufficed considering the normal tasting roasted duck. The char siew on the other hand, blew my mind. It has the perfect char and fat to meat ratio, and flavourful bite to it. I personally don’t like the normal sweet char siew with rice lathered in the sauce, so this was different and way better. The roast pork was juicy, though I was hoping its skin would be crispier. Tried their lava egg as an add on but it wasn’t anything unexpected, would just focus my energy on the char siew and roast pork in the future😍


💡: On par with KL 海外天 Overseas Restaurant😍 - approved by family! especially for their premium char siew highly recommended 💯

i cannot stop raving about the sweet fatty char siew 🤤 so sinful but so good!!!! i had roast paradise before but not their premium fatty char siew which exceeded expectations 💗 the chunky crunchy pork belly served fresh and hot was next to clear 🤪 followed by a close fight between the tender roasted duck and lean char siew ✨

For sides other than rice 🍚 which u must get to balance out all the juicy fats 😂 The cabbage soup (self service) is so addictive packed with the aromatic flavor from the duck bones and sweet cabbage 🥬 their mee pork with housemade spicy sauce really dealt a punch as well 🥵✨

overrall, 💯 return for the premium caramelised char siew - on par with msia top tier standards 😉💗

Thick cuts of char siew with Hakka noodles. The char siew is made from pork belly hence the slightly fattier cuts. The fat-to-meat ratio of a pork belly results in a tender juicy bite with a slightly charred and caramelised exterior. I chose to skip the rice and went for their Hakka noodles which looks plain but turned out surprisingly good. The noodle was a perfect match, cooked till al-dente and drizzled with lard oil 》$5.80

roast pork isnt that great tho just get the charsiew!! vvv caramelised i love


Look, I know @roastparadise has been slinging out highly acclaimed roast meats since…2016? 2017? Yes, they’ve been around for years, and it’s only in 2023 that I’ve finally cleared my calendar to sample their sustenance.⠀

Their claim(s) to fame are their char siew (BBQ pork) & siew yoke (crispy roast pork), so it was only right that I get both greatest hits with rice ($5.50 a bowl). The rice was subtly flavoured, almost like a slightly bland chicken rice, and it’s definitely a slight upgrade on regular ol’ white rice. As for the meats, the char siew retained a surprisingly excellent texture & chew despite being chopped into small bits. The exterior of the char siew, which was lovingly lathered with copious amounts of char siew marinade, transformed into a crisp crust cocooning the fatty pork within. The charred exterior is crisp and it will stick to your teeth.⠀

As for the pork itself, it was insanely fatty, and I could see it getting surfeiting after a couple of servings. Still, the meat was more than amply flavoured thanks to the char siew marinade penetrating deep into every meaty morsel, and the amount of fat was a tad overkill when it came to lubing up the mouthwatering meat. Unfortunately, the roast pork performed poorly. It was chopped into such thin slices that the crunch of the beautifully browned rind was wasted, and a porky musk permeated the fat on the pork. Bit of a shame really.⠀

In all fairness though, at just $5.50 a bowl for both roast pork variants over rice, it’s quite an economical deal. Plus, Roast Paradise has got cabbage soup that you’re more than welcome to help yourself to. Roast Paradise might be sorta overhyped, but don’t let that distract from the fact that their char siew is mad decent.
