A line of people waiting patiently is a pretty good indication that there is something worth waiting for. Fatty Cheong touted as the best char siew in Singapore is one of these places. After stalking ieatishootipost walking around like a hawker nerd with Dr Leslie Tay's book under my arm, I literally scrambled into line.
Fatty Cheong has been around for 15 years with all blogs pointing towards it. The rich marinade of soya sauce, sugar, oyster sauce and salted bean paste lovingly caramelizes the meat. A charcoal oven lends a smoky flavour with the pork available in either a lean or marbled version. I don’t know if it was the charred bits of fat that melted with every bite or the fact that it was only $4. Either way, I would definitely line up again.
