Singapore Famous BBQ Pork. It’s square, it’s naughty, it’s delicious. Gimme.
The missus is away for the weekend and the zany bachelor shenanigans continue...
This party just doesn't stop as I step into Singapore Famous BBQ Pork in the Burlington Centre in Chinatown.
I first got the taste for Singaporean BBQ pork many moons ago when I (stupidly) decided to go to Singapore for Chinese New Year thinking it would be a wild time, decadant even. It was exactly the opposite of wild. It was dliw. Everybody stayed home and ate with the family, there was nothing happening. There was a fun fair by the water but that was dull even by Singapore standards. But the one thing I did discover was Singaporean BBQ Pork, people were queuing up around the block to get it for their New Year celebrations. I had nothing better to do so I got in the line too. The result was a square piece of pork, it tasted kinda processed but rich, spicy and juicy. Years later I discovered you can get the same stuff in Sydney's wonderful Chinatown, without having to queue up.
Miss Chicken isn't a fan of Singapore Famous BBQ Pork but I love it. The shop owner in the photo above sees me taking a photo and gives me a big warm smile, in I go.
I got there near closing time and there was only a few pieces left. I went the chilli pork number, it was $2.75 and it was delicious. So delicious that I forgot to take a photo of it so sorry folks, no money shot. I just ate the thing straight up but next time I'll take it home, much could be done with it: salads, stir frys, beer snacks etc. I'll be back to try the array of jerky type dried meats too.
Singapore Famous BBQ Pork is on Thomas Street, Chinatown.
