For many years, Kim Joo Guan was a wholesaler supplying bak kwa to famous retail brands, but it recently entered the retail market.
We found that its seasoning tasted similar to Bee Cheng Hiang, with a good blend of sweet-salty flavours. The meat was very thickly sliced. Although the meat was fatty, it was dry and tough to chew in some parts.
The bak kwa also had a very strong char-grilled smoky flavour, which some of us liked, but others thought was overpowering. On a side note, we were rather impressed with its classy packaging. It costs $43 a kilo

We queued 40 minutes for this bak kwa on a Sunday one week before Chinese New Year! This bak kwa really tastes very similar to the famous Lim Chee Guan, with just a tad tougher texture. If you don't want to queue for over an hour at Lim Chee Guan, the bak kwa at Kim Joo Guan is a good choice :)
Delicious honey smokey flavoured charred pork slices - makes a great snack, and will keep for around 2 weeks. The server is also very friendly, and will happily allow you to try the different types of pork slices until you are certain which one you want to buy.
