Located just three bus stop away from home at Clementi West Street 2 is Rong Liang Restaurant. Located at the void deck of block 725, the premises has a floor area of a coffeeshop selling roasted meat, soup and some zi char dishes. The place is usually very crowded during lunch and dinner time. Most guests will order their roasted meat.
Sio Bak 3.5/5
As you can see from the picture, the Sio Bak is roasted to beautiful layers of skin, fats and meat. The skin unfortunately fall short of my expectation. It did not get that much anticipated crackling crispiness I was looking forward to. Nevertheless, the flavoursome roasted pork belly is still quite delicious.
Roasted Duck 3/5
For the Roasted Duck, it was rather ordinary compared to many places. The duck lacked the crispiness in the skin and the meat was on the dry side.
There is also nothing special about the rice. Just ordinary fragrant rice, drizzled with a sweet dark sauce.
Watercress Soup 3.5/5
Besides the roasted meat, the restaurant offers a selection of boiled soups. I had the Watercress Soup which is light and hearty, with the crunchy watercress for a refreshing finish.
Overall I think the roasted pork and roasted duck are not that fantastic compared to many other places. However the offering of other zi char dishes and boiled soup could be a satisfying meal fix if you are not too picky.
