I am so stuffed with schoolwork right now that I practically live, breathe, eat and sleep essays...but I just have the time for one very quick post now. Hopefully I'll be liberated by the end of the week - have a couple of food posts I want to get up.
Rose Garden BBQ Shop - one of my favourite Chinese places, period. Food's mostly fantastic and unlike some of its counterparts (who shall remain unnamed) - the service there is generally very good as the Mrs.Boss and family are all rather friendly and generous with their smiles.
So I was at Victoria Market yesterday and wanted lunch - and decided to try their roast meats as I've never really tried it before. I opted for a mix of Honey Roasted Pork (Char Siew) and Crispy Skin Pork (Siu Yok) aka 叉烧烧肉饭 ($7.80).
Seriously, the pictures speak for themselves. Doesn't it look so amazingly yummy!? The char siew was tender and delicious and juicy - and not too fatty. But I think the siu yok is fantastic. Although I am one of the very weird that doesn't really eat the crispy part of the pork - the pork itself was SO good. It was so less fatty than other siu yok I have seen, means I get more value for my meat! Cos I throw away fatty bits so normally I end up eating only half a siu yok but for Rose Garden's I can finish an entire piece! Yay!
Definitely getting this dish again in near future. Will try eating the crispy bits the next time...
