Kam's Roast 甘牌烧味 serves Michelin-starred roast meats in Singapore from tomorrow

Friday, 18 November 2016


Earlier this week, I finally had the dinner I've been looking forward to for a long time: Kam's Roast 甘牌烧味! It was exciting as, during the media launch, I got to meet some of the family members who also came to Singapore to grace the opening of the famous Hong Kong roasted meat eatery.


Singapore is the first outlet outside HongKong. (lucky us!) A household brand renowned for its roast meats, you can expect the same quality and standards for the dishes.

The appetisers were pretty good and, well of course, appetising. Especially liked the marinated black fungus with vinegar (香醋黑木耳, $6.80) which was crunchy and delectable, like a snack that you will not get enough of.

As some of you might already know, despite being famous for its roasted goose meat, Kam's Roast would not be able to serve it in Singapore due to regulatory restrictions. Hence, in place of goose meat, we now have roasted duck - also much to my satisfaction!

The roast duck (甘牌烧鸭) and soya chicken (桶子油鸡) is really good, the meat is juicy and tender and the sauce that comes with it is extremely addictive and good to have with some rice. The mixed portion goes for $11.80.

Corporate events, birthday parties or CNY celebrations? No problem, get the whole duck for $48 or $14.80 for the whole chicken!


Another thing you might like to note is how, finishing the roast duck is akin to finding some treasure hidden beneath it - specially flavoured soya beans are packed below the meat and it meant to be eaten after you've finished the duck. Crunchy, we couldn't help but continue popping it into our mouths while washing our palate with some hot chinese tea.

We also tried the Roast Suckling Pig / Crispy Roast Pork 化皮乳猪 / 脆皮腩仔. Any one who loves to eat roasted meat knows that the essence are all in the skin. The crispy skins here do not disappoint.

And presenting you my favourite dish of the night: The 'Toro' Char Siu (BBQ Pork Belly 肥浓叉烧, $22.80)!

Omgoodness, they used premium pork belly for this, please see my instagram post below for more details. I totally love this and would some back simply for this! For a leaner, but still delicious option, go for the regular char siu (蜜汁叉烧) at $14.80 per portion.

[Noob Tip: Tastes best when you eat it as soon as it's served.]

肥猪腩肉, 男人的浪漫! 💙💙💙 Well, last night's dinner was super awesome. We got to try their signature 'Toro' Char Siu, which was a melt-in-the-mouth delight. Seasoned with Kam family's award-winning marinade, the smoky sweet flavours play in your mouth as you munch on a perfect balance of fat and meat. Well known as Kam's Roast in Hong Kong, you can now have a taste of their awesome meats (except for goose meat) in Singapore, when they launch tomorrow (1pm) at @pacificplazasg (next to Royal Plaza on Scotts). 💙💙💙 Please go and try this, especially the Toro Char Siu! My absolute favourite - retails for $22.80 per portion. 💙💙💙 Many thanks to @kamsroast_sg and @brandcellar for the invitation for the media preview last night! 💙💙💙 #甘牌燒鵝 #甘牌 #Kamsroast #kamsroastsg #michelinstar #michelinrestaurant #叉燒 #charsiu

For carbs, try their braised noodle with ginger scallion (姜葱捞面, $6.80). It's lovely and made the true hongkong noodle way, with a nice al dente bite to it.


If you're ready to proceed to desserts, may I recommend the red bean soup with aged orange peel (陈皮红豆沙, $5.80)? Anyway, it's the only dessert they serve in-house, but you're not going to regret it. Known as chen pi (陈皮) or sun-dried tangerine peel, the ingredient gives the dessert and overall distinctive flavour and takes the dessert up another notch! To be honest, using chen pi is not new in chinese dishes and I was glad to see this awesome ingredient being used. The light red bean soup also served as a perfect ending to the meal.

Kam's Roast Singapore will be opening its doors tomorrow (19 Nov, Sat) at 1pm. Be there or be square!
