Lee Hong Kee Roasted Meats Tiong Bahru Market

Lee Hong Kee roasted meats with rice or noodles are some of the most popular food choices at Tiong Bahru Market and Food Centre. We avoided the crowds by going there on a Monday. The Tiong Bahru food centre is located one level above the wet market where almost all the stalls close on Mondays.

Lee Hong Kee Roasted meat choices cover the usual range of roast meats such as duck, chicken, roast pork, char siew. They also have braised egg and tofu to complement the meats. The roast meats are served with rice or noodles. Here is a picture of the Lee Hong Kee Cantonese Roasted Meat menu. We decided to try a wanton noodle and rice with a two-person portion of mixed char siew and roasted duck. The total cost was about $16. Lee Hong Kee is accepts CDC vouchers so it is a convenient place to use them on a Monday when the queue was quite short.

Roast Duck, Char Siew and Wanton Noodles at Tiong Bahru

This is a picture of what we ate on a Monday at Tiong Bahru Market and Food Centre.

We were pleasantly surprised by the portion size of the mixed meats. It was quite a generous serving of char siew and roast duck. Our preference was the char siew which had a good mix of lean and fat. They were nicely roasted with an adequate but not excessive amounts of charring at the edges. Best eaten with a bit of the oily gravy and some of the chilli sauce provided. As for the duck, we thought that it was not bad, but not as enjoyable as the char siew. We found the meat to be a tad dry and hard. The status of the Ghim Moh roast duck as our favourite hawker centre duck was not under threat.

The winner of the day was the wanton noodles. The noodles were light and springy. They had been wonderfully flavoured by the sauce. Topped with the delicious char siew slices, the Lee Hong Kee roasted meat and wanton noodles is a winning combination. We should also compliment LHK for the delightful wantons and also the tasty soup.

Tian Tian Yuan Dessert House

After our meal we proceeded to look for coffee and dessert. Because it was a Monday, the choices were limited. We ended up with tau suan ($2) from Tian Tian Yuan and coffee from L21 Cafe.


Not exciting enough to write home about, but it was an evergreen dessert and coffee to round up out lunch at Tiong Bahru food centre.
