Probably the Best Roasts in Toa Payoh

Besides delicious Peranakan ‘Fast Food’, the Food Alley tucked deep within HDB shops at Toa Payoh Central is also home to one of the best Roasts Joint in Singapore and probably the best in Toa Payoh.

There are 3 main roasts available at Hiang Ji – Roast Duck, Roasted Meat and Char Siew. Although individual portions of roasted meat noodles or rice are available for order, dining at Hiang Ji is best experienced with a group of 4 to 6 diners where all 3 roasts can be consolidated and shared. That’s exactly what we did ;P


You can choose to have your roasts with either Rice, Noodles or


Hor Fun. The Hor Fun was quite a hit with my female colleagues, I personally prefer the noodles. The rice? Only if you are a big rice fan.


Our first shared dish was Stir Fried Bean Sprouts. Sweet, crunchy with an occasional kick from the sliced chilli, it makes a great appetiser. The fried pork fats sprinkled around the bean sprouts makes the dish a little unhealthy but you can always choose not to eat it.


The Roasted Duck served was a mouth-watering sight! I love its crispy skin and the meat is exceptionally juicy and tender. The plum sauce goes brilliantly with it.


The Roasted Meat and Char Siew came together beautifully on the same plate.


The Roast Meat with just the right amount of fats was really good but it’s limelight was stolen by ….


Char Siew! I suspected that they used the pork belly as the meat was juicier & fatter than other Char Siew that I have tasted. The seasoning of the meat was perfect, I could savour the sweetness on every piece of Char Siew.


An excellent place for good roasts with friends, family or colleagues! The idea is to come and dine in a group. Here’s the full details of this roast joint:
