Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d know that Lim Chee Guan takes top spot for the longest bak kwa ($44 per kg) queue every year in the weeks leading up to Chinese New Year. The shop really doesn’t need the extra publicity, but truly, its bak kwa is in a league of it’s own. The meat was very well-marinated, with a great balance of sweet and savoury flavors. The robust, umami flavours burst in our mouths as we chewed on the tender and succulent meat. It also had a lovely, subtle smokiness. However, this was also the fattiest bak kwa in our round-up, which could prove a bit too rich for some. Also, we detected that the oil was slightly rancid in some pieces.
