Best char siew in Singapore

While not one to extol food outlets, I felt compelled to write a bit about Kay Lee's char siew.  It is sinfully good.  If you happen to like the type of char siew they serve (I do), that is well roasted, sweetish and marbled with fat.  The combination is simply scrumptious.  I do not particularly enjoy eating meat with too much fat, but will make the exception for the char siew as the meat is so juicy, tenderly and delightfully tasty. Downside?  It's probably not the most healthy meal.  So far, the best char siew I have tasted in Singapore.

Over-Rated, Over-Priced, Over-Roasted

Perhaps it was due to the many positive reviews that set our expectation high on this place.  We finally tried it and found it to be disappointing.  As I saw the lady chopping the lean and rather dry char siew, I decided to opt for the fatty ones.  It was still dry and nothing like a good tasting char siew should taste.  Same for the roast duck and roast pork.  Way too dry.  Peeps, there are way better roast meat around for lesser price than here.

We ordered just roast duck and char siew but was given 3 roast, for 3 person and charged for S$37.90.  Way too much for the not too generous portion never mind the quality.
With this price, enjoy a succulent, moist and delicious char siew at Char.  Think the price would come up lower but in a restaurant setting.

I hesitate to recommend this place because it just means more people are going to know about it!

But honestly, I have been there 3 or 4 times and it's been consistently good. It's near Tai Seng MRT statio
