We’ve had our fair share of fab Chinese-style roast meat, from hipster restaurants to home cooks. But nailing this simple pairing of meat, sauce and rice requires plenty of expertise. And we’re glad to say we've found a new place to enjoy the delicacy in Ayer Rajah Food Centre, a stall cheekily called Te Bak Kia (“pork kid” in Hokkien). The three-month-old stall is run by a millennial couple: 28-year-old Chong Jin Yuan and 27-year-old Gan Jia Jing — serving some of the most value-for-money roast meat we’ve had recently. They also dish out a fast-disappearing Teochew dish: braised pig’s face.
