Kay Lee Roast Meat Joint 琪利珠江烧腊

Monday, 19 October 2015


Kay Lee Roast Meat Joint was started around 1970s in Chinatown. It all began in a humble coffee shop. With inherited knowledge of uniquely spiced Roasts, they were able to gain a name for their 'Zhu Jiang' styled roasts. 

Now located within Suntec City, they cater to hungry patrons looking for some good old roast meat in the modern mall. Well, at least the branch I tried it from. They also have another branch in Upper Paya Lebar.

Managed to get a 'peace out' sign from one of the chefs in the kitchen while I was taking this photo.

Let's Eat!
They first served us with a little appetiser, braised peanuts!
One of their specialties, the Prawn dumplings with mayonnaise ($9)! Dip it in the no-frills-no-thrills mayo on the side. I enjoyed this crispy, juicy snack! But I think it was quite expensive for the quantity.
We also ordered their 3 combination roast meats ($10.80). We had the roast duck, roast pork and char siew (BBQ Pork Belly). Their roasts are pretty good and lean.
Dip the duck into the sweet plum sauce and chilli. Awesome matching.
The char siew done up how they would usually roast it in Hong Kong. This is not like the Singaporean ones, which mostly have a redder edge.
With their recommendation, I also tried the Canton-style dumpling noodles ($8.80) and I loved it. The noodles tossed in their delicious sauce was altogether lovely, and the dumplings were tasty. To be honest, I kind of enjoyed this better than the roasted meat rice.
Their soup, which is served on the side, is clear and pretty comforting too. I'm craving for this now as I am writing it!
