Many of you may know of Kay Lee Roast Meat Joint at Paya Lebar which sold their business to Aztech group for $4 million. Since then it has expanded into may outlets across the island but somehow I find that it has lost its authenticity, not to mention the stingy portion of roast meat that comes with a higher price tag now.
I got to know about Mei Mei Roast at Ubi Road 1 when I came across a posting by my fellow foodie kaki, Uncle Bob. It got me even more excited to read that the stall is operated by Kay Lee's younger sister. Hence I decided to make my way down to the stall on a Sat to check it out since it is now more accessible with the new Downtown Line 3.
Roasted Duck 4.5/5
I ordered a platter of roasted duck, char siew and sio bak. Among the 3 different roast meats, my favourite is the Roasted Duck. The bird is given a coat of crispiness with a nice hint of charred smokiness. The meat was also tender and juicy. I enjoyed so much that I gone back to packet a whole duck back for my parents.
Char Siew 4/5
The Char Siew was also very enjoyable with the right proportion of lean meat and fats, with the bittersweet charred bits. However I felt the marination was a bit too sweet for my liking.
Sio Bak 4.2/5
To my little surprise, the Sio Bak turned out pretty good too. The succulent pork belly has a enjoyable layers of lean, fats and char. On top of that, it is crowned with a layer of crispy and crackling skin.
Besides the different roasted meats offer at the stall, Mei Mei Roast also offers noodles, kway chap, braised duck and soups. The humble stalls sell quite a lot of items indeed. Thanks to Uncle Bob's posting on facebook, I have discovered a new found love for roasted meat, especially the roasted duck.
