Updated: Mar 4, 2021
The world best char siew in Singapore at Old Airport Hawker Center ?. Yes, its called Roast Paradise. This char siew is absolutely delicious, tender, crispy, caramelized with smoked blackened edges, when you bite its smoky flavor rolls around the tongue for a superb full rounded taste. They serve Malaysia Kuala Lumpur (KL) Style char siew which is slowly roasted.
My colleagues was very very very lucky tp get the last plate at 1.30 pm, and on another occasion, I had to pre-order our food , while I watched it dis-appear rapidly of the hooks, while waiting.

The queue is quite long each time, i went there, but it was quickly shortened.
An Interesting Story of a Startup.
Roast Paradise was started by 2 young pals, who did not want to continue working in an events company into the early hours in the morning. And so kai went to KL to learn for 4 months how to cook the char siew slowly learning from a burmese and a china cook, on how to achieve perfection.
