[CLOSED] Roast Paradise in Ang Mo Kio

This is the other outlet of Roast Paradise that started at Old Airport Road Food Centre. This stall is located in a coffee shop just a stone's throw away from the Ang Mo Kio MRT Station and directly opposite Cheng San Market & Food Centre. It is at the same coffee shop with the Soon Kee Boneless Braised Duck that moved from the already demolished Long House along Thomson Road. 

Unlike their stall at Old Airport Road, the queue is usually much shorter here. I was there on a Sunday, the light of their signboard was turned off and I thought they have already closed but it came on about 15 minutes later. I asked, "Are you serving now?" The young chap manning the register replied, "We are opened." I decided to go with the Char Siew & Sio Bak Rice for $4.00. He asked, "Do you want gravy over your rice?" I nodded. 

I shared it with my dining companion, he said, "The sio bak is still not too impressive." We felt the same when we tasted it for the first time at their other outlet. The pork though well-marinated but the skin was a bit soggy, not as crispy as I liked it to be. The char siew was still good though, it was chopped into thick slices, slightly charred and nicely caramelized to give it a slight sweetness. It is still one of the better ones around. 

It was served along with a bowl of tasty soup that has bits of meat and pieces of cabbage in it.
