Foong Kee 丰记, Keong Saik

foong kee char siew sio bak
Don’t be fooled into thinking that this 60s-looking kopi-tiam is old. In fact, it has only been around for more than 8 years. Like all hipsters, Mr NGFL was taken in by the decrepit look that he liked all the food, including the wanton mee, which Straits Times once named The Best Wanton Mee in Singapore.

But the wanton mee was not fantastic. Done in an old school way with black sauce, the noodles were rubber bands, hard to sever the strands, and the wanton and dumplings had a porky stench. The soup was oily, nothing special too.

What was really good were the roast meats: char siew (roasted pork) and siew yok (roasted pork belly), fat with a great texture. The char siew was caramelized well and had a smoky aroma and the siew yok possessed that crackling wholesomeness that made it irresistible.

But it was quite costly. For two bowls of wanton mee, a dumpling soup, drinks and a plate of roasted meat, we paid about $15-$20 each.
