Rong Liang Restaurant (荣亮阁) - Char Siew, Roast Pork & Chicken @ Clementi [Behind West Coast Hawker Centre]

I believe in fate and it is exactly this mysterious force that somewhat deterred me from bringing along my trusty Nikon D7100 in my last three visits to Rong Liang restaurant.

So on the fourth time i visited, something good must happen and i would elaborate about it shortly. Anyway, do note that the restaurant is more our typical kopitiam with no air-conditioning and available seating can be hard to find during mealtimes.

Rice
Nothing amazing about plain white rice although it has always been the sweet, savoury sauce that made all the difference. The restaurant obviously didn't scrimp on the sauce yet it wasn't that much to overwhelm the rice.

Roast Chicken
The meat was extremely juicy and tender which was secondary considering how much i really adore roasted chicken skin that was so thin; it didn't require much effort to detach it from the meat!

Char Siew, Roast Pork Platter
The first three times i had my lunch at Rong Liang Restaurant with the Lau sisters, Ms Tan (and occasionally Ms Louis), it has always been the char siew i would attack relentlessly.

It was nicely flavoured, of the right charrness and would count as one of the better ones in Singapore (even though not on the same level as Kay Lee). I would prefer a higher ratio of fats but for the sake of health, this would still do.

On the roast pork that day, fate decided to give me one of the best roast pork (sio bak) i ever had in my whole life! Despite having a marginal layer of cackling pork skin, the taste was just perfect without the saltiness that often swamped my taste buds! It was so delicious; i was constantly eyeing the last piece on the plate. Thank god it eventually landed in my mouth!
