If you want to eat bak kwa (barbequed pork), this would be THE place to go to.  If you don’t believe, try queuing for a packet of their bak kwa before Chinese New Year.  Be prepared to wait at least an hour before you can even place your order.

What I like about their bak kwa is that it’s made of minced pork, and not sliced pork.  Although many will argue that sliced pork is the most authentic bak kwa, I take into consideration my parents’ poor teeth when they try to bite into a piece of sliced pork bak kwa. 

Now, what I don’t like about their bak kwa here is that it tends to be a little bit sweeter than the Kim Hock Guan’s one.  Perhaps this helps to make the bak kwa last longer. 

What’s interesting here is that they bother to separate the non-spicy rou sui (mini bak kwa) from the chilli ones.  Most bak kwa stores I know don’t do that, so you get a true mix of everything including the beef ones.  So generally I don’t buy rou sui as mom does not take beef. 

Prices as at 20 January 2008 go for:- S$12 for 300g of non-chilli mini bak kwa, S$28 for 600g of non-chilli minced pork bak kwa and S$29 for chilli minced pork bak kwa.  Be warned – prices here do go up as it draws closer to Chinese New Year.

  • If you pay using your UOB credit card, you get a complimentary voucher for a 150g pack of fish or chicken floss with every S$300 spent.  Valid from 8 January to 21 February 2008.
