Tucked away in the remote Serangoon Avenue 4, opposite the public Swimming Complex is the best char siew (pork barbequed till it’s charred) and duck (roasted) rice. The sauces they provide here are superb.
This is a typical HDB flat (Housing Development Board builds these and married Singaporeans are subsidized when they buy a new unit). There is a bias against singles who have to wait till they are 35 to get a grant for a new unit. Public housing in Singapore makes use of vertical space – that’s how so many people fit on a tiny island). I quite like the moss green brick design on this one.
There was a long queue at the stall indicating how popular it is. Though there are other famous stalls here like Botak Jones, everyone seemed to be just patronising this one while the other stall holders looked forlorn and just positively annoyed.
The char siew (barbequed pork was quite fatty and I prefer mine lean – it used to be lean and more well charred).
But the sauces are still just as good. I think they have the best chilli sauce to go with the rice and I usually go grab another portion at the counter.
The honey sauce is for the duck.
