Tucked away in a little corner of Toa Payoh central is this roast meat store that my colleague, A, swears by. When we visited her hood just a couple of days ago, I was led through a mind-boggling maze of shops leading from the train station before arriving at the store. Was great to be greeted with a full rack of glistening roast ducks and charsiews on display since we were both starving!
Against a backdrop of the lady boss shouting orders from her 水饺 wrapping station, we got ourselves settled in and ordered what A recommended.
The 烧鸭 and 叉烧were good but i found the 烧肉 a tad it too dry and saltish. The 水饺s were not too bad and really huge, but according to A, that was one of the “off days” and could have been better. For carbs, the dry noodles was recommended and it came well blended with a concoction of sauces +stalks of kailan. I am not normally a noodles person but this was pretty good.
The bill came up to be $43.90 (1/2 烧鸭 =$17，叉烧烧肉=$12，noodles =$2/bowl, 水饺汤=$8/bow of 8), more than enough for 3pax. Cld definitely have fed up to 4. That being said, it was a little exhorbitant and totally not heartlandishly priced but I guess the company and new food recommendation (new to me at least) was well worth it. The single serve portions are definitely more economical.
