Tiong Bahru Lee Hong Kee Cantonese Roaster Review
Tiong Bahru Lee Hong Kee Cantonese Roaster serves a variety of roasted dishes such as roasted pork, chicken, duck and char siew. The duck here has a good umami flavour and decent crispy skin. The char siew has a good caramelization but lacks some fat. A combination of their sweet sauce drench over the dish, sweet and sour taste from the chilli sauce makes this dish bursting with many flavours.
Things I like
- Good umami flavour and crispy skin from the duck
- Balanced taste of saltiness, spice and sweetness from the sauces
- Char Siew could use some fatty skin
Tiong Bahru Lee Hong Kee Cantonese Roaster Food & Price
I order their 3 combos Roasted Duck Roasted Pork with Char Siew Rice ($8.00). The owner will check with you if you prefer to drench the sweet sauce over the dish or not. Good touch as some might not like it.
I was expecting the chilli to be spicy but the chilli here is leaning more towards the sweet and sour side which goes well with the duck.
The roasted pork has a slightly more fat-to-meat ratio and is a little on the saltier side. It is a good mix with the sweet sauce that was drenched on the rice.
Roasted duck here had good crispy skin with a decent amount of meat to it. It also has that mid to strong duck flavour to it which hits the sweet spot for me.
The char siew here has a good caramelization and leaning more towards the meaty side. Fats here is rather mild thus making it not as flavourful as it could be. However, the taste is still pretty good given the amount of fat content involved.
Tiong Bahru Lee Hong Kee Cantonese Roaster Service
Do expect some queues here during peak hours. I waited 15 minutes on a weekday at noon time. Service was fast considering they were 8 people in front of me.
The staff here was very friendly and welcoming which is definitely appreciated.
