Hong Kong Lung Hwa Review: Famous Roasted Meat Stall Re-Opens At Queenstown

5th June 2024

Hong Kong Lung Hwa has famous soy sauce chicken and roast meat at Queenstown


Hong Kong Lung Hwa was one of the more famous roast meat stalls in Toa Payoh, and its success could be attributed towards its owner, Mr Leung. The man has over 30 years of experience working at Chinese restaurants all over the world and of course, this hawker stall that he is best known for. This experience has allowed Mr Leung to craft roast meat that is said to be some of the best in the country.

Due to health concerns, Mr Leung took a break for a year before relocating to Mei Ling Market & Food Centre in Queenstown. It took no time for word to travel, and soon enough loyal fans of the stall travelled to eat their roasted delights and soy sauce chicken again. We too had to join the queue to see what the fuss was all about.

Food at Hong Kong Lung Hwa


The first thing we got was Steamed Chicken Rice ($4) with Braised Egg ($0.80). When ordering, I was delighted to see Mrs Leung add a dollop of ginger scallion sauce to the side. Not many HK roast stalls in Singapore make ginger scallion sauce—this is a mixture made from sliced spring onions and ginger, with hot oil drizzled on top to cook the ingredients while imparting its flavours into the oil.


I liked that the rice was lightly seasoned in chicken fat, so it was savoury without being too greasy. However, I found the steamed chicken breast to be quite dry, but the ginger scallion sauce and chilli were able to make up for the lack of moisture. The spice and tanginess in the chilli sauce also intensified the flavours in this dish.


Next, we had the Soya Chicken Noodles ($4) with Braised Egg ($0.80). This plate came complete with all the accompaniments: pork lard, veggies, ginger scallion sauce, green chilli, and a sweet chilli sauce.


The noodles were quite springy—this chewiness paired well with the tenderness of the chicken. I also liked the addition of sesame oil imbued within the noodles, it paired well with the natural taste of chicken.

Also, if we were to compare the soya chicken with steamed chicken, I preferred the former over the latter. In particular, I liked the jelly-like texture of the chicken skin and the well-marinated meat that was infused with a rich soya flavour and had a pronounced gingery kick.


For extra meat, we got a portion of Char Siew and Roast Pork Belly For One Person ($8). Just look at the way the char siew is glistening! Every slice was sweet and juicy, and I liked eating the slices that were closer to the ends of the char siew as they had had extra char and caramelly goodness.


Last but not least, we liked that the skin of this siu yoke was exceptionally crispy. The Chinese five-spice marinade in the meat was also quite subtle, thereby accentuating its natural porky umami flavour.

Ambience at Hong Kong Lung Hwa


Hong Kong Lung Hwa is a nine-minute walk from Queenstown MRT Station. While it may be a short walk, we had to weave through blocks of HDBs while walking uphill, so it was quite a hassle. Even so, the spacious hawker stall can still get crowded during lunchtime, which means people are willing to walk for this plate of noodles or rice.

The verdict


In conclusion, if there was one word that encapsulates our lunch at Hong Kong Lung Hwa, it would be “fragrant”. Each meat we tried today hit just the right notes, from the aromas of the soya sauce in the chicken to the caramelly notes in the char siew. Also, a special shout-out to the ginger scallion sauce as well! I highly recommend pairing this with almost everything here.
