Fook Kin restaurant (福劲) is a casual eatery along Killiney Road featuring roasted meats. According to information on CHOPE, it is a collaboration between popular DJs “The Muttons” who host the Singapore 95 FM morning radio show and the Old Airport Road Hawker stall Roast Paradise.
Fook Kin is quite a large restaurant, taking up two shop fronts along Killiney Road. Its name is prominently displayed on the awning at the eatery. Diners heading to FOOK KIN can use the parking lots along the road, but one will have to be very lucky to find an empty lot. And be good at parallel parking to seal the deal. The easier way is to park at the basement carpark of Singtel Comcentre just across the road.
The interior of Koon Kin restaurant is modelled like a coffeeshop of days gone by. The collapsible metal gate, basic furniture and retro Chinese background music gave it a 70’s Beauty World vibe. We thought that the neon lights and a wall mural punning on the words “Fook Kin” is a bit cheesy. The distressed look of the place may appeal to some but we are not very fond of the decor.
FOOK KIN Restaurant Menu
Here are some screen shots of portions of the Fook Kin menu. We selected a Char Siew Delight Noodle and a Char Siew Rice ($9.80 each) plus a portion of Golden Wantons ($7.80).
The pieces of char siew were coated with a dark layer of caramelised sweet sauce. It added a pleasant smokey flavour but also a hard surface to the meat. We thought that the char siew was rather dry. The soft egg and the mee pok were nice. The latter had a satisfying “q” texture.
The deep fried wantons were meant to be a side dish to distract us from the char siew dishes. As it turned out, it was a dish we enjoyed the most. They were served piping hot with very crispy skins covering delicate meat stuffing inside.
