Lim Chee Guan (Chinatown)

AsianChineseLocal
Lim Chee Guan's bak kwa is probably the most sought after during the Chinese New Year period. Be prepared to queue for hours as it will be common for hordes of customers to queue up just to get a pack of bak kwa.

One of the better bak kwas in SG, and some say Batam! ;)

Every year during Chinese New Year, I keep telling myself not to face the crazy queue for Lim Chee Guan’s bak kwa (sliced barbeque pork), which can take up to 6 hours. 

Lim Chee Guan's bak kwa is one of the better ones around town, the texture is tender and flavourful, and worth the carbs. It actually tastes better out of Chinese New Year period (plus no queue!), and after trying the different types (even prawn bak kwa), the signature pork flavour and the bacon strips taste the best IMHO.

Which Bak Kwa to choose?

Lim Chee Guan is one of my personal favourites, is it worth the queue? Is it worth the time queuing? Is it worth the money queuing? When does one start to queue?

The meat was very well-marinated, with a great balance of sweet and savoury flavors.

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.

Thinly sliced bak kwa

I should say this long-time brand is the hottest selliing bak kwa brand during the chinese new year period. I would always see a very long queue of people lining up for it such that in a bid to prevent some people from ordering too much and denying others of a chance to purchase, the brand even limits the amount of bak kwa per customer can buy. It is not hard to see why Lim Chee Guan is so popular. The bak kwa are thinly sliced and very tender compared to other competitors.
