Popular Char Siew & Sio Bak Hawker Stall 88 HK Roast Meat Opening Air-Con Restaurant In CBD
Our go-to place for fantastic caramelised char siew and crackly sio bak is 88 Hong Kong Roast Meat Specialist, which has two kopitiam outlets: a standalone flagship eatery along Lavender Street and a coffeeshop outlet nearby at Tyrwhitt Road. Snaking queues at peak meal times are common at the well-loved brand’s stalls for fans of the swarthy Malaysian-style char siew on lard-slicked wonton noodles, with a side of gooey yolked ramen-style egg.
Business has been so good that chef-turned-hawker Martin Ong, 50, tells 8days.sg that he will soon be opening a fancier and spacious 130-seater air-conditioned casual restaurant at Far East Square shopping centre in the central business district, tentatively in early March.
