Yan Chuan Roaster Affordable Set Meals
We visited Yan Chuan Roaster in Lavender recently and ordered a Set B 北京烤鸭 – 1/4 Roasted Peking Duck (usual price $12.90, current special price $6.90) and a Set E 蜜汁叉烧 – Honey Char Siew (usual price $12.90, current special price $6.90).
The roast duck was not bad but not particularly remarkable. It was roasted such that the meat was not dry and retained some fat, and the skin crispy. There was no gamey taste. The portion size was quite generous.
We liked the Honey Char Siew better than the Roast Duck. The cut of roasted pork had a combination of lean meat and fatty parts. We found the charred bits at the edges a bit hard and chewy. Overall, the taste was quite nice. The portion of the char siew was again rather substantial.
Yan Chuan Roaster in Kitchenr Complex does not serve gourmet roast meats. The roast duck and char siew we tried were nice but nothing to rave about. The standard is about the same as the roast meats found in an average hawker stall. However, at current prices, eating at Yan Chuan Roaster may be cheaper than eating in a food court. For those with an average appetite, order 2 sets and an extra bowl of rice and you can have a good meal for three. With the savings, after eating at Yan Chuan you can head across to 檳城家鄉味 Traditional Penang Food and pay for probably the best Penang chendol you can find in Singapore.
