Char Siew Rice :D
This thing here is what they use to roast the meat. It takes hours of hard word before the dish is served to the customers, take note of that the next time you order roasted meat dishes and such so that you can savour the taste with appreciation. :>
When we asked who were the regular customers the stall ownner told us that people of all ages order from the stall, it was still early when we were at Tiong Bahru Makret so i guess we were lucky that we did not have to queue up for too long!
Singaporeans love char siew rice! I know i do~ But... Why? We think that it is probably the taste of the char siew and the sauce, i mean, who can resist such delectable food? This dish with a long history is probably well known to all Singaporeans since it has been around for so long and it is available at just about any food court or hawker/food centre :D
Like many other traditional dishes, this dish lives on!
Side note. What is char siew? It is barbecued pork meat. The exterior of the meat is dark red due to seasonings-e.g. honey-and it is normally consumed with rice. Char siew originated from China and it is a cantonese cuisine.
