Char Restaurant + Seletar Hill Restaurant

Looking for nice food is what both Baby and I have always been doing, and this time round, Baby brought me to a new food haunt, Char Restaurant which is located at Guillemard Road. It offers cze char styles dishes with its 3 signature dishes being Roast Meats!

We ordered the Triple Roasted Platter - BBQ Pork (Char Siew), Roast Pork Belly (Sio Bak) and Roasted Duck at a standard price of SGD20.50.

We ordered the Soup of the Day to start off our late Friday dinner.

The roasted Char Siew is heavily coated with caramelized coating which makes the meat texture softer and easily melts in the mouth. The Char Siew tasted more like Kong Ba as it tasted sweeter and smoother. I STILL prefer the Char Siew served at Kay Lee Roast Joint which is located at Tai Sing.

I love the Roast Pork Belly (Sio Bak) the best, as Char Restaurant serves the most delicious version. I enjoyed eating the crusty crackling skin although it was sinful. On well, who the heck cares when it comes to good food! The bottom part of the pork belly is less salted as compared to other places. The portion was generous for both Char Siew and Sio Bak.
The Roast Duck tasted normal among the 3, although it was cooked pretty well done.

The Kang Kong with Preserved Beancurd was quite a disappointment as the ginger smell was too over-powering which spoilt the entire dish for me.

The total damage was SGD39 (inclusive 10% service charge) and they do not charge GST. If you are looking for an interesting place to indulge in a new way of Chinese-style cooking comfort food, then Char Restaurant might just be the place for you.

It has been 2 years plus since I last visited Seletar Hill Restaurant which is located at Seletar Hill Private housing area. This eatery place serves affordable and good Szechuan cuisines. We ordered a pot of hot Pu’er and the tea was served in tiny glasses.

I ordered my favorite dish, Szechuan Dry-Sautéed String Bean and it tasted super delicious and addictive, although the presentation was rather weak and unappealing.

We had Sizzling hot-plated Tofu, and it tasted normal. We enjoyed it as tofu is our comfort food and we are both tofu lovers.

Both Baby and I love the General Tso’s Chicken very much, and I savored every single bit of it.

We round up our meal with a bowl of nourishing dessert, Double-boiled Snow Fungus with Red Dates, and the damage was SGD38.
