Roast meat stalls in Singapore
Most, if not all, roast meat stalls in Singapore serve both char siew and roast pork, AKA siew yoke. It is easy to find a stall that excels in either one, but not both. So, if you are like me, who always opts for a plate of sweet and savoury char siew siew yoke rice or noodles, here are 17 roast meat stalls in Singapore where you can enjoy the best of both.
1. Fu Shi Traditional Roasted
With almost 15 years of history, Fu Shi Traditional Roasted, situated in Marsiling Mall Hawker Centre, serves a mouth-watering plate of Char Siew Siew Yoke Fan ($4.50). This comes with lean-cut char siew, balanced out with the fat but juicy siew yoke chunks. It is guaranteed that you will experience a satisfying crunch as you bite into its crispy roasted skin.

Doused in a rich and savoury braised sauce, Fatty Cheong serves a delicious plate of Char Siew Roasted Pork Rice for $4.50. What’s special about their char siew, is the unique underarm cut that they use, bu jian tian, giving it a tender and juicy bite. Their siew yoke, on the other hand, tends to be on the leaner side.

3. Mei Mei Roast
Opened in 2003, Mei Mei Roast is not only famed for being the younger sister of Kay Lee’s former owner, but also for their succulent roast duck. You can either order a half duck ($25) to share, or a plate of Duck Rice for $4. However, you should not miss out on their Char Siew and Roast Pork Rice ($4) either. It comes with deeply caramelised char siew, with flavours akin to bak kwa, and irregular-cut chunks of fatty siew yoke that simply melt in your mouth.

However, some argue that the siew yoke has stolen the spotlight, with its irresistibly crispy skin, and perfectly balanced fat-to-meat ratio. Their honey-glazed char siew is also worthy of mention.
