The hawker stall selling the legendary char siew.
Been dying to try this premium char siew noodle for at least 5 months without success due to limited and overcrowded parking and pure bad luck. I love trying my luck and not doing much research you see, so i ended up trying to eat there on the 2 days (Monday and Friday) when the shop was closed.
So this round, i was fortunate enough to be there when the shop was opened on a Saturday 8th October 2016. Even then, it was also pure luck that we managed to eat the legendary char siew as we were the last 2 orders before it was sold out for the day. And that was at 10am after a 40 minute queue.
Expectations were high for this as it was featured on the Taiwan show Iwalker where a local chef recommended this stall to James from Taiwan who was suitably impressed.
For $5, the char siew was generous as can be seen in the photo. Thick juicy slices with a thin layer of fat marbling the meat and both plates came with the extremely delicious caramelized side of the roast. The meat is springy, adequately sweet and fragrant and definitely different from typical roasts. The noodles were a hit and miss as my wife reported hers as slightly mushy. Mine on the other hand was perfectly done.
The wantons were sweet and filling despite its size. And the green chili really added to the taste of the entire dish. This is significant because i don't eat green chili but i loved what was served here.
Excellent hawker fare and worth a visit. Be early to avoid disappointment.
