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.

Previously it was disaster, had it this time during dinner so it's better, at least it's not cold

The char siew glaze was great as before, there's a bite, it's not the super tender kind but the texture was pleasant

Siobak was slightly crispy, but still quite greasy even tho it's not as bad as it was before(I requested for a less fatty part)

Rice was nice, it's got a mild umami

Overall pretty decent this time, worth a try if you're in the area

It was one of the best shao rou that I have ever had in SG! Had expectation because of the rave reviews I had from people but it was as good as I have imagined it to be! The char siew was on the sweet side, the caramelisation was amazinggg

Not sure if they hardsell me but they made it sound like 200g is the minimum for ala carte.

This was DISGUSTING. I went at 3pm? And everythibg on the plate was literally COLD. If you thought coming at weird times to avoid the crowd is a good strategy, you're dead wrong for this stall

Siobak had a gradient of fat to lean ratio. The fatter end was pretty much inedible. Heavily salted too at the surface. However despite being cold some parts still had a very strong crunch

Char siew had a really solid glaze that's sweet. That's the only aspect that makes me think they're raveworthy. Otherwise it's actl a very lean cut, not very well charred and thus no crunch at all, and the meat itself didn't have the best texture. Just average for something of this leanness.

Sauce was like char siew glaze but with a much stronger savoury slant.

Very, very disappointed. I went to the branch at paya lebar before and was blown away. Yet the original is so unprofessional, serving cold food
