The once Cantonese specialised dish has become a favourite among diners in Singapore.

With its crispy skin and soft layers, roasted pork (烧肉) is of the many delicacies in you can find in local koptiams, but now we’re telling you which places have the best ones!

Because, well, chicken rice is so yesterday.

At first, you may think that a plate of BBQ and roast pork rice here is too pricey for a hawker centre stall. Ranging between $4 to $6, their sweet sauce and pork combination is definitely worth your money!

Topping up $1.50 gives you a bowl of their piping hot soup, which goes particularly well with their already delicious roast pork dishes. Find them at 87 Beach Road, #01-01!

2. Hong Kong Jin Tian Eating House

Be transported to Hong Kong without a plane ticket as this stall delivers its signature roast pork dishes! Started by owners from Hong Kong, you can be sure that the food from this stall has that authentic Cantonese taste.

With the use of their blended five spices powder (no, nothing to do with KFC), it is no surprise that they have a  more unique taste as compared to other stall serving the same dish. Located at 55 Zion Road, they are open from 8am to 8pm daily; plenty of time to get your roast pork fix!

They certainly aren’t stingy with their sauce, so your roast pork is going to have that obsidian gleam, and that sweet and salty tang. Besides roast pork, they offer other delicacies like roast duck or char siew rice, and you can rest assured that your meat is going to be fresh and tender as they put their chickens and duck on display. Simply head down to Blk 214 Serangoon Avenue 4, #01-88, to get a taste of their delicious dishes!

Hidden in a small corner of Chinatown and lying along 6 Keong Saik Road, Foong Kee has one of the best of roast pork dishes in Singapore. The crispy skin of their self roasted meats is definitely make your meal more enjoyable.

If you’re dying for a taste of something that doesn’t have as much of an explosion of flavour, they even have $2 chicken rice! Now, tell me, where else can you find a plate of $2 chicken rice in Singapore?

5. Taste Paradise 味之樓

For something a little more high class so that you can enjoy your 烧肉  in comfort, you can head on down to ION Orchard, #04-07 to take a seat in their restaurant. Not only is their roast pork crispy with a tender middle, they also serve delicious pig’s ear, lemongrass aloe vera, and braised rice. 烧肉 has never sounded so atas, eh?

6. Kay Lee Roast Meat Joint

We’d say that a recipe that has a value of millions of dollars is worth trying. What’s special about it is that an electronics company, Aztech Group, bought over the stall for $4 million. $4 freaking million dollars!

For many, including the CEO, this stall holds many childhood memories as they have feasted on its dishes since young, where the quality has never truly dropped since. As the original chef is still around, you can head on over to 125 Upper Paya Lebar Road to try her million-dollar (literally) dish.

7. Nan Xiang Chicken Rice

Despite the name, their roast pork and duck are must-haves. You are able to get a loaded plate of either pork or duck for affordable prices, and chewing their soft meat will ensure that your meal is satisfactory! If you’re near Marine Parade, get going towards 271 Tanjong Katong Rd to try their dishes!

8. 88 Hong Kong Roast Meat Specialist

They really know their mean here, as you might have deduced from the name. With generous portions of their fluffy fatty pork, they are able to draw a huge crowd. The BBC Coffeeshop at Qinan Building, 153 Tyrwhitt Road will thus have along queue, so you’ll have to be quick if you want that tender roast pork!

9. Legendary Hong Kong

Interestingly, this stall has dishes going at almost $10 for two different meats with rice. Maybe if you prefer your roast duck with less fat, you try out their food, especially since their roast meats are of high quality. Located inside Jurong Point (#03-80), it’s a must-go for all westies!

10. Mei Mei Roast Meats

Remember the Kay Lee Roast Meat stall we mentioned? You’re able to get a similarly tasty dish here, with delicious strips of pork. That’s because the boss of this stall was once the apprentice of Kay Lee’s skilled lady boss, and started this stall after 15 years of training. Perhaps visiting these two stalls will tell you what the real standard of roast pork should be, and you can visit Blk 3014 Ubi Road 1, #01-308 to find out.
