CRAZY GOOD CHAR SIEW

Char at Guillemard Road is just the sort of place you want to tell everyone about.

The air-conditioned zi char eatery is run by the brothers Ung from Birmingham in the United Kingdom. Anthony, 41, runs the front of the house while Alvin, 51, makes a crazy good Char Siew ($5 for 100g, minimum order of 300g).

No red colouring mars the barbecued pork. Instead, the glaze is black and shiny, the tender meat tasting of good dark soya sauce and expert caramelisation. While the minimum order sounds like a lot, the pork does not last long on the plate. Anthony says there are diners who order 300g each and then ask for more.
