We like the Cantonese roasts at this stall, usually marked by a substantial queue as well. While we wouldn't brave the queue for the food here, we will get a 2-person portion if there isn't a queue.
 
 We had:

1) Roasted Duck ($12): fairly fresh, very flavoursome, succulent and with just the right amount of fat to make this extra tasty without that much of the guilt

2) Roasted Pork ($8): commendable, with a crisp golden skin, tender salty meat and nice thin layer of fat

3) BBQ Pork ($8): though not the best around, is moist and well-caramelized with a smoky charred crust, and slathered in a complementary stickily sweet sauce

Not worth its hype

Please go to http://rollingwrites.blogspot.sg/2012/07/tiong-bahru-lee-hong-kee.html for pictures!

I opted for the Char Siew and Sio Bak ($3). It's not that it's not nice, just that I think it's overhyped. It's my fault that the roasted pork's skin is no longer crispy because I asked for the sauce. But the char siew was not as sweet as I liked it to be, and perhaps was too fatless. For some people, you may like this combination of char siew- fatless and not so sweet.

The abundance of gravy went well with the rice and the roasted pork was quite lean as well. They also serve a special concoction of chilli sauce (not your normal chicken rice chilli sauce).

While the portion and taste is worth $3, there's this stall in Tanjong Katong, Nan Xiang Chicken Rice, where I really like the char siew- slightly charred, slightly fatty, and coated with sweet char siew sauce.

Customer for eons

Am a long-time customer…..since old Tiong Bahru market days.

Roast pork has crispy skin, char siew and roast duck are good as well. They serve rice and noodles.
