The Lee Hong Kee business has been around for more than 45 years. As history (and the undying long queues) would show, the roasted meats here are a crowd favorite. Meat lovers would have their fill with the large range consisting of roasted duck, chicken, pork, and char siew. The meat is char-roasted, lending extra crispness.
The most popular item here is the char siew rice with roasted pork ($3). Not only is the price reasonable, you get a hefty amount of meat. The tender char siew is cut thickly, offering a very satisfying bite. Those worried about the high calorie content need not suffer pangs of guilt from indulging in this dish the pork is lean, and has a fragrant roasted taste to boot.
The roasted chicken rice ($2.50) is served with the same sweet braised sauce used in the other dishes, and may taste a little odd to some.
