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 :)

Yummy pork slices

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.

Strong char-grilled flavour but hard to chew

Total Reviews: 275

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
