So happy to finally taste the roasted delights of Hong Kong Lung Hwa stall at Blk 127, Toa Payoh West Market and Food Centre (5 minutes walk from Braddell MRT station).

I had wanted to try HK Lung Hwa Roasted Delights ever since I saw the queue at the stall some time back. The stall is still as popular today.

Today is my lucky day. While waiting for makan buddies to arrive, I bumped into BH, my First Toa Payoh Secondary School classmate 😃 BH coincidentally is also a fan of Lung Hwa Roasted Delight and offered me this plate of roast pork belly to taste.

Oh...! Lung Hwa's sio bak or siew yok is good 😋

The skin was roasted to a golden brown crackly crisp. The layers of lean meat and fat were tender yet juicy. I like it that the flavour was well balanced with layers of savouriness and a subtle underlying sweetness. The intensity of flavour of Lung Hwa's roast pork belly was just nice for me (I often find other sio bak flat and overly salty). Each bite also released a gentle, pleasing aroma.

When the rest of the gang got here, it's time to whack Lung Hwa's popular roast duck. We shared half a bird (price $19). The bird came chopped in large chunks which I like.

The skin was roasted to a golden brown crisp and had a lovely robust savoury taste and toasty aroma.

The meat was tender and moist though not very juicy (as it was a skinny duck). The savoury flavour was mild so it complemented the more intense savoury flavour from the skin.

We enjoyed Lung Hwa's roast duck and it was the favourite of Alvin. Mark declared it the "best roast duck in a hawker centre". Actually, I have eaten at many restaurants which roast ducks cannot match this 😂

Lung Hwa's roast duck comes with this plum sauce. Its texture is like a jam. I like it because its sourish sweet salty flavour was well balanced and at just the right intensity for me. It tasted so good, I can eat it just by itself like a dessert 😄.... wah lau Tony 😂

I managed to steal a few moments of friendly boss Mr. Leung's time between customers 😄

I noticed Mr. Leung's oversized Apollo oven. "This oven has followed me for 17 years - 11 years at PSA Food Court and 6 years here in Toa Payoh" Leung shared, holding onto his trusty workhorse like a faithful friend.

Mr. Leung let this pesky inquisitive stranger peeked inside his charcoal fired Apollo oven.

Hailing from Hong Kong, Mr. Leung's 30+ year career reads like that of a Michelin star chef 😄 Setting his culinary foundations at Hong Kong Central's famous 陸羽茶室 Luk Yu Tea House, he went on to restaurants in Zuhai and Shunde (China), Bangkok (Thailand), Yokohama and Tokyo (Japan), Montreal (Canada), and American Club (Singapore).

It was at the American Club that Mr. Leung met his wife Sandy and the globetrotting chef settled down in Singapore. And so, we have to thank Sandy that we can enjoy top notch Hong Kong roast in a Toa Payoh hawker centre 😄

👉 Good roast pork belly and roast duck at 127 Toa Payoh. Mark said that Lung Hwa's soya sauce chicken is also very good, so that is my next target 😋
