Located in the same strip plaza as ’ Chi-star '. The chef/owner of this newly opened business apparently was a former BBQ chef of ’ Excellent BBQ ’ just up the road. Unlike ‘Excellent’ , ‘Golden Piglet’ offers a huge sit-down space for dine-in patrons
Selection of roasted meat and marinated offal products offered, enclosed in glass display enclosures, were quite comprehensive and impressive looking!
For my initial taste test trial, I chose their Roasted Crispy Skin, Belly/Ribs Pork and a Bento box of Cantonese Roasted Duck on rice. Crackling of the pork was superb, the meat sweet, juicy and moist. Sadly, major wood charred-aroma was disappointingly deficient. Duck was acceptable but average, flavour profile and seasoning rather one-dimensional and lacking in complexity.
Overall quality, though good and acceptable, was nothing to shout about… a near reflection of its competitor/distant cousin just up the hill inside Richlane mall.
For me, my favourite go-to place is still 'Tong-Ha ’ inside Silver Star boulevard food court, though the drive is kind of long and the gasoline price premium is quite hefty! Ha!
